I slept with it last night haha... i bet it will be different when i'm actually hooked to it but since I roll around a lot it had to move it around with me, explains why i'm yawning so early!

Short of actual putting insulin into cartridge and into my body; I experimented with every other aspect of the pump. My trainer expected me to

Comment by Zoe on May 18, 2012 at 12:22pm

Congratulations, Maycri! I used the time after I got my pump and before I did my training to do just that. I read through the manual page by page. Then started with batteries, synchronizing and setting up basic things like date and time. Well, ok...truth be told I started working on my insulin settings, but that's just me..lol

Comment by Maycri on May 17, 2012 at 6:34pm

Got mine today! Fresh out of the box... by next month I'll be a pumper too. Should I keep the batteries in and start using the tester or should I wait til I actually get hooked to it and taught how to synchronize remote and pump? Can I dowload the software already? lol i think i'm way to eager

Congrats olu Oog! I'm sure it'll work wonderfully for you.

Comment by Zoe on May 3, 2012 at 9:52am

Congrats to you olu OOg! Hang in there through the learning curve and I'm sure you'll love it too!

Comment by olu Oog on May 3, 2012 at 9:41am

Started pumping for the 1st time yesterday. I find the meter remote very handy. I hope and wish the system will work for me as it does for you all.

Florian, a bit late, but yes I find that larger boluses of novolog don't absorb well. The rare times I need a larger bolus I do combo over 1/2 hour or so.

NorCal, I echo what Zoe said. Congrats!

I just got my trial ping today, I have pumped with minimed for 9 years and there is a learning curve even after being a seasoned pumper. I am axious to see what I think at the end of my trial because it seems like so much work to learn a new system on this my first day.
Comment by Zoe on April 2, 2012 at 2:58pm

Congratulations on your new Ping, NorCal! There is a fairly steep learning curve, but once you climb over that mountain you will love it. I got mine a year ago January and came on here several times with questions, so post away!
