Zoe I can't wait for the paperwork to go in. Its been a month and a half since it was suppose to go in. I really have to thank this group for teaching me a lot. It has helped me prepare for pumping big time. Plus the books I've read thus far too.

Hi all

I'm not really sure how a comment wall is different from posting a topic (not a social media person), but I don't have a particular topic, just wanted to check in, so I guess this is the place. I received my new Ping (my first pump) on Tuesday. The trainer is coming this afternoon and will start me on saline. We had stated Monday would be the day she would return and start me on insulin, but I've been frustrated with my doctor's assistant who hasn't told the doctor to fax in my prescription for Apidra vials (I've been using pens). But last night a Clinical Manager called and said she will be stopping at my doctor's office today because he also has to sign the pump use order. I don't really use my doctor for anything other than writing prescriptions so I'll work with the Animas personnel to get my rates going. I'm so excited! I'm hard "at work" reading the manual. So far I've just programmed the date and time into the meter and I have been really impressed with the Animas customer service. From first call it was only 2 1/2 weeks until I got my pump and they included a fee waiver of my 20% of cost! Yay! I'm sure I'll have questions as the days go on.

Good luck to you, too, Amy, sounds like we're starting around the same time...mine is blue!

My appt went well!!! I can now order my green pump :-). I can't wait to get it!

Thanks Kelly...I was really hoping that I was going to go in yesterday and by Friday the paperwork would be in. But nope, I have to wait until Thursday. I am thinking I'll need to do different I;C ratios for different times of the day, etc.

Good luck on Thursday Amy!  The weather in PA is supposed to get warmer as the week progresss, so I hope you don't have any more weather delays!
Comment by Amy on December 28, 2010 at 8:17am

ok-thanks Marti
Comment by marti w on December 25, 2010 at 4:24pm
sharon, if you brought syringes, you might try a normal shot. if it doesn't work you can eliminate the pump as the cause and focus on either problematic insulin or your body. what you are experiencing sounds like me during my period

I did change the cartridge.  Right now I seem to be okay.  I'll see how the morning goes and change my site again-thanks!
