When I went on my pump they had me write a 3X5 card of my current insulin usage I was using prepumping, I still have it and believe me I am not that orgainized(cannot even spell it.)
I was also told not to go on a basal insulin but just to shoot up every few hours with fast acting insulin as when you return to your pump you will still have that basal insulin floating around in you and you could go hypo upon hook-up.
End of May, my pump died and I shot up humalog over night setting my alarm every 2 hours to test. I did okay with it, but I was in panicsville at first, but somehow I had remembered the plan of just shooting up humalog and I thought about how much insulin my basal was set up every hour on my pump. It was kind of a guessing game, but it worked out okay.
Manny be careful when you hook back up and remember you might still have Levemir in you, so you might want to reduce your basal rates a bit. Pre-pump set up I had to wean off Lantus, cutting the dosage.
