It came!

Good luck to Myriah as well, another new February Ping-a-Ling :)

Myriah, you'll do great! I know it!

Audrey, I'd suggest if possible go talk to the guys at the genius bar at your local apple store. They're usually great to talk to about software issues, but there's not much difference between 10.4 and 10.5 I think it's just a few bugs worked out. As long as you have the disk space available, I'd go for it.

Audrey, no mine is an older one, I've got one of the titanium powerbook G4's, it's an awesome computer but i've updated alot of the stuff on it so that I can run alot of the videos that i needed for lectures. it was easy to do I thought... do you live near and apple store? Do you have a laptop or a iMac?

Myriah, YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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!!!
Comment by Myriah on February 1, 2010 at 8:35am
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.
