    Alex also had the pump and it really helped him. We had a few bumpy issues at the beginning but we went through them pretty well. He had his second one placed last year due to they say you should replace them every 5 years. Alex’s main concern was with the first one we had to get pump refilled every month, which he hated because it made him late for his day program, but with the second one it was larger so we only had to go back every 4 months. He was not crazy about another surgery but he certainly was glad to have a few less dr appointments.

      Wow, it had to be refilled every month? The one we have now only gets refilled every 8 months! It’s crazy how far they have come over the last few years. I think we are on the lower side of usage because I am so scared of the withdrawals if something were to happen. Did he handle the surgery well? I’m not sure how Taylor got such a bruise from her second pump surgery. With the first one, there was no bruising at all!
