Congratulations Myriah! You will love it!

Congrats Myriah
My son has been on the Ping (he chose Black) for the last 10 days. I was as nervous as you were but overall his numbers have gotten so much better. Their will be a learning curve - not as much with the pump but with the infusions etc. Nothing major - I just went to the Animas site and played the video for what I was doing.
There are a lot of videos but I narrowed it down to the following 4 in the order that you do it. They are listed on the videos just as I have them here.
1. Filling needle, cartridge
2. Filling cartridge
3. Inset Insertion
4. Priming the infusion set - inset

(You might be using a different inset but there is a video for it.
Good Luck

Elizabeth: Did your MAC come with 10.5? Mine came with 10.4.11 and I will have to upgrade to 10.5-any input on that?
Myriah-I admire the PINK choice!!! Good Luck!!!

my new PINK PING just arrived in the mail!!!!!!!!!! i get "hooked up" tomorrow!!!!!!!!!! i'm sooo excited!!!! ;-)

Audrey, I have 10.5 running... it's been a breeze uploading my data and printing... I think that I will however need another program to put into a document style file verses the one that comes with the pump.

Rose - if it helps any, I have been using the pump for a couple of months and lost 4-pounds. It turns out that it's easier to lose weight if you don't have to feed your insulin.

Elizabeth-what version of software does your Mac have.
Michele-I had an English muffin and egg white omelet this morning for breakfast-actually around 11 AM- let's see how I do 2 hours later. I love the insight about the fruit-I really love bananas and apples-but blueberries and strawberries are wonderful too. Like Jamie-MMMV
Comment by Rose Joelle on January 29, 2010 at 10:05am
Thanks, I won't give up yet. Most of my fears are about lows and about feeling out of control with those and weight gain... really some issues that have little to do with the diabetes. I am also struggling with my infusion sites so that has been very frustrating. I am underinsured so I can't just re-try when they go badly :P Hopefully I get better at it soon!
Comment by Elizabeth on January 29, 2010 at 10:02am
I didn't put the program on my work computer simply for the fact that it's my information and I don't want anyone else to have access to it. But when i put it on my Mac at home, it couldn't find my pump, so i called into Animas and they told me that I didn't have the drivers uploaded and once i did that, it worked like a charm! As far as not liking the software there is one little thing that I think should be corrected- it not showing what part of the bolus was correction, etc, and being able to upload the information to excel or whatever other program you want to use... I even tried to put it on my jumpdrive and try it that way but no matter what way I tried wasn't successful! Oh, well, can't have everything I guess!

Thanks Elizabeth, I have been using my PC at work and llike you I think it's great. I have been hesitant to try the Mac because of the results that some others have had. I'll let you know how it turns out.
