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.

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.

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.

Thank you! I'm used to the flucuating BGs that's why I wanted a pump. I'm hoping to level them out I too take 6-7 novolog a day. +Lantus. Cover all carbs and high BGs so that part seems simple. I have a PC so I ordered my software the night I got my pump. Hope it comes in soon. For now I've copied logs out of my manual. I've been following the DVD with my pump and going through all the menus. I've even programmed my ISF, I:C & BG target and range in my pump already. With my CDEs consent of course. Last night, I tied a string (the length of the tubing) to the clip last night and taped it to my ; ). Then tried going to the bathroom and moving around and making bowling moves as I bowl twice a week. Just to see where I might have problems. I did pretty good but I can see how easy it would be to dump it in the potty. Well I hope you're having a good day and thank you again for your info.

Hi Michele - I do the same thing. I love the wireless communication between the two especially in the winter with all the layers. I remember trying to get through all those layers in a movie theater to give myself a dual wave bolus (Combo for the Ping'ers out there).

The only problem I run into is with the sets. I don't know if it because I am getting leaner or if the canuals go in differently than that of the sillouttes from my MiniMed days but I am have repeat occurences of bruising and occlusions (not ones picked up by the pump). Perhaps I will start a new thread.

Hey Mark,
I remembered what you said about the pump being bright, and last night, used it as a flashlight to illuminate the meter for my 2am check. Worked great! Got the strip in the right way and got the blood on the strip first try!
