Judith....happy to hear you got rid of that women; what a really stupid approach and thing to say. Guess she hasn't left the sandbox yet! ---Anthony

Jeff....I love reading your comments and reactions. I felt exactly the same as you describe when I started with the 723. It's like being in a completely new world! It's refreshing to read about your satisfaction and happiness.

How do you like being an engineer...? Would love to know what it's _really_ like. I think I still have the visions from when I was 5!

Best to you,

Been on the pump for a day and starting with CGM next week,so far I love it.I've already seen place's for quick correction's and feel differt's and feel better,why did I wait so long?
Comment by Judith on July 2, 2010 at 5:30pm
Jeff, congratulations on your decision to be on the pump! It also changed my life, I have been on it for a little over a year--and would never give it up (even tho' one doctor threatened me tha if I did not test my blood sugar enough, she would "take away my pump--end of that doctor!) Good luck with it.
Comment by Michelle Hughes on July 2, 2010 at 10:00am
Ok. Cool. Let me know how it goes. Note, if you have a sensor that doesn't work or is defective, call medtronic to send you a replacement. I only had a handleful of them in the last three years. Oh, another thing see if your personal doctor can get you some transdermal lrg to use. They hold my sensor on better.

Medtronic and CGM get's here today.
