When I first began Pump therapy I giggled when the pump trainer encouraged me to name my pump. I figure, sure alright I mean I name my car, my teddy bears and have nicknames for my fiance... so sure I can name an insulin pump. My first pump was Xander he was a blue Medtronic Paradigm and his name came from the Greek name Alexander that means "Helper of Mankind".
My new pump is Gracie, she is a pink Ping and her name is a reminder that by God's grace alone have I been able to receive and finance my new pump therapy. So how about you all? I need fuel to prove that I'm not insane LOL.

I think your husband should be glad that another guy is that interested in keeping you healthy, and that you are cute enough to be attractive to that other guy!

LOL--I'm going to share this with him. After this comment I think Chester is going to stick!

Oh, and I forgot to say that if he rides in your bra, he must definitely have a chest fetish, so "Chester" is REALLY appropriate, LOL!!

haha Love this one! ask your hubby though, would he prefer it be a girl in your bra? maybe he'll then just laugh and let Chester join the family c(-=

Okay, mine is named Pollack. No, really! You see, Ping reminds me of sonar. Sonar reminds me of submarines. The first submarine I served on was the USS Pollack (SSN-603). So, there you go!

I am getting hooked to mine in about a week and a half so I'll have to come up with one. I am also a Star Wars geek so I just thought of "datapad" and my phone is my "comlink"... we'll see, in my opinion nicknames cannot be forced so maybe somthg stupid will come up and stick lol


My pumps name is Pj. it stands for PANCREAS JUNIOR :)

PJ how sweet, love that one :)

My pump's name is Myls (pronouned Miles) as in My Lifesaver. :)

love it~

My pink Ping is named Rosie, but I also play roller derby, so naturally, she needed a skate name too. She is known as Clutch to my teammates :)
