I was also concered about the whole sleeping thing, but I just clip the pump to my skiivvies and I'm good to go. I thought rolling over onto the infusion set would be painful, but that's not the case. I have found it ironic that most of what I was concerned with before I started using a pump have turned out to be non issues.

Does anyone know how to export the data from the ping software into an excel SS to combine the bolus and blood glucose logs so the data can be synchronized into usable information? We are using a windows xp computer. I am struggling to get my basal rates in the zone-my AIC's are running 8.8 and I don't do well with the lows. When I start to drop it happens quickly. I drop from 270 to 70 in an hour when I use a correction bolus. Any advice?

Way to go Bob!
My weekly average already dropped from 189 to 123.
My dread was sleeping with the thing. I'm a tosser. But it's so small when I do manage to roll over on it, it doesn't wake me up. And so far it has NOT come loose from the clip and wrapped the tubing around my A nightmare I had after I applied for it.
Rose you are going to love the control it gives you. And even though it is attached to you, you will have a great sense of freedom from the disease. As Michelle said "Be excited!"

You'll do great, Rose! The pump will be your friend, not you enemy.

I started on my Ping in September, and I haven't regretted it once. I have much better bg control, and for me, the biggest benefit is I feel that I have some real control over the disease instead of it controlling me. 3/09 A1c=12.6; 12/09 A1c=6.4.

I was a bit leary of the learning curve and the dreaded tubing, but as it turns out, both of those concerns were a lot larger in my mind than in reality. Congrats!

Hooray! Be excited! It will make your life soooo much better!

Rose once you open everything and get your pump S/N # you will be able to register. Happy pumping! Been almost a week for me and so far so good.
Comment by Rose Joelle on January 14, 2010 at 3:25pm
My pump just arrived! I had it sent to my office because I had to sign for it. Now I have to have the box sitting next to me at my desk until the end of my work day! So tempting!!! I am excited and scared! And the damn animas site wont let me register an account... lol, go figure!

My solution for not dunking my Ping in the potty is I tuck it into my shirt when I unclip it. I usually am wearing a tanktop under my shirt so this is a pretty easy thing for me to do... as of yet, no potty dunks! Lol!

Congrats Jason! Go ahead and read the workbook and follow along with the DVD. It made my training so much easier. I hope your wait isn't so long.
Comment by Jason on January 8, 2010 at 4:20pm
My Ping came today =) Now I have to anxiously wait a week or 2 for training. Perfect time to finish reading Pumping Insulin and skim through the manual though.
