Prepping . . . .

Today is World Diabetes Day, and in my own little diabetes world there is some excitement.  Because I’m prepping for training first thing tomorrow on this  . . . .

It’s taken every bit of willpower I have not to just tear open the boxes and wing it.  But I know it’s important to be properly trained . . . . so I will.  Tomorrow.  Yay!!

  2. I know when my Animas Ping showed up on my door step I caved and started it on my own. Even though I knew I should not but the Dr. was quite impressed because all the setting were correct.

  3. Karen, I am dying to hear about this! Maybe you could send a tweet the first time you hit the threshold suspend? Though I wouldn't wish that scenario on you at all. So hopefully, I'll never see a tweet about it.

    Okay, I'll stop talking now. Good luck with the new tools!

  4. You're better than me. I would for sure rip it out and "wing it".

  5. Yay! New pump! I'm starting pumping on Tuesday (already did my saline trial), and I've had to hide the pump in a cabinet to keep myself from going squirrelly in anticipation.

  6. I have been using mine.for 2 weeks and think it has been going great. However, I have nothing to compare to as I was only recently diagnosed (9/23/13). Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

  8. How are you liking the new pump and CGM system? I have a Minimed Paradigm and I'm looking at getting a Dexcom because personally I'm not too thrilled with Medtronic so I don't really want to go with their CGM. I'm just looking for other opinions. Thanks!
