Kudo's to Omnipod and their support team

I have to share my recent experience wit Omnipod CUstomer Support in Canada, it's worth sharing.We planned a 2,046 km (one way) road trip to my daughters graduation in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. We were to leve Friday morning at 3:00am. Thursday night at around 7:00pm while packing my nox of pods, I realized that the full box of pods I had were the old ones, not wht I've been using the past 6 months.

RobAW replied to jen627's discussion 'PDM Error?' in the group OmniPod Users
"On the old PDM, I had the batteries die, and the PDM reset itself when I put new ones in. Insulet said that should never happen and sent me a new PDM right away. I don't see why dead batteries would cause the PDM to fail or for the pod to lose…"

RobAW replied to dishers's discussion 'Temp Basal issue' in the group OmniPod Users
"What is your Bolus Increment? My guess is, if it is set to 0.10, and you were trying to temp increase it by .05 as a result of the calculation, perhaps it's calculated value is less than your minimum bolus increment. Perhaps try to change your…"

RobAW replied to joey's discussion 'getting ready for summer' in the group OmniPod Users
"Personally, I do nothing different over the summer. It's business as usual for me. I guess I'm s active (or not, lol) in the winter as the summer so things stay pretty much the same."

RobAW commented on Mathew's group 'OmniPod Users'
"Ok, so this may sound really dumb, but I've been saying this for years and the Dr's think I'm nuts. It does happen to me on a fairly regular basis. It's almost like I'm on some kind of a cycle. I will go three weeks or so…"

RobAW replied to Christine's discussion 'Pod placement on thin people' in the group OmniPod Users
"Lol, good for you Christine. Glad you gave it a try. Since I never used that spot for MDI, I find it's quite a consistent area as well for absorption - nothing but(t) good using that spot (sorry, bad pun)."

RobAW replied to Christine's discussion 'Pod placement on thin people' in the group OmniPod Users
"Nope, it is actually just out of the way, driving is not an issue at all. Mine is usually just off to the right or left towards my side a little bit. You do need to be a bit careful going into the car seat, just so you don't put weight on it…"

Thank you all for the wishes. It's hard to imagine another year has gone by so quickly, and as the numbers grow higher, so does the speed at which birthdays seem to arrive. I appreciate the kind words. Rob
