I thought for sure I was gonna fight tooth and nail with my dr but nope! I told him that MDI just isn't working out for me plus my job schedules me smack dab in the middle of lunch so going back to 4 shots a day wouldn't work and I really want to give the ump a try. And he took what I said and said "you are definitely ready for the pump. I got sooooo excited! I told him I am going with Animas as I like the food directory and the different basal settings for it, etc. And of course how much you guys LOVE your ping. So I did the C-petide test and the glucose test as some insurance company may need that info. So I did that. He loves my A1C :). I am going with the green one as I wear blue a lot and dont want to be too blue. Now I just sit and wait for the paperwork to go through and for the insurance gives back an answer. I'll be excited if I can start by Christmas or even by the start of 2011 :)...Oh I am just excited I can kiss my dexcom (which he saw my levels go everywhere and agree that it would be best to go try the pump).
