Aspen Is Getting an Insulin Pump!

This isn’t the first time Aspen has been on our blog. We also shared a glimpse into the days following her diagnosis, which she received in early January, here. We’ve gotta say this young lady is adjusting to life with type 1 diabetes pretty amazingly!

Her incredible family, who call themselves The Dale Tribe, are great at making sure Aspen feels supported and special as she continues to navigate the first year of her diagnosis. Their love and encouragement clearly have a tremendous impact on her, as she approaches with her diabetes with bravery and strength. Aspen barely even flinches when her nurse inserts her cannula!

Take a look at the video below and see how Aspen reacts to getting her first insulin pump, or as her dad jokingly puts it, “officially becoming a robot.”

Warning: Her excitement might be contagious!

They chose Seattle because they heard that's where they kept all the good coffee - plus Ella learned about grass. L. De Mello likes books, music, movies, running, and being outdoors as much as possible.
