MAY 20, 2011 [Bolus, Injection] For Sara.
An 11 year old, with time and education, can learn to inject themselves with insulin. I always came back to bolus him for snack in the preschool days as they would not administer insulin. I did hang out for the first few boluses and BG checks.

then." He bolused

BETA BUDDIES [Bolus, Injection] Mile High Club. In The Bathroom This Time
| TUESDAY, JULY 31, 2012

A party should be assembled due to your ability to leave the FBB (Family Barf Bucket) in another room as you roam the house. MORE >>
