Rotating clip/holster for Animas pump

Started this discussion. Last reply by artwoman Jan 3. 3 Replies

I heard a rumour that there is a clip/holster for the Animas pumps. It rotates so you can wear your pump horizontally if you want. I have checked the Animas site, but haven't seen it. Has anyone seen…Continue

Animas ping changed time after battery change

I am posting this here because I want to see replies directly to my question (rather than posting on the Animas group).When I changed the battery in my Animas pump, all of a sudden the time changed from "am" to pm" - no reason for the time setting to change. I noticed it the next day when I used my pump to tell what time it was. I am glad I noticed fairly quickly (didn't think I had to check after the battery change process). This could have made for problems since I have different basal rates…See More

Thanks for the birthday wishes. As my birthday is El Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and this year's Halloween party in our neighborhood - the theme was Day of the Dead. It was awesome - I was surrounded by skeletons, and some other "dead" creatures. I wore a skeleton body suit and a black tutu. We partied and danced well into the night, and then with the time change, got an extra hour of debauchery.
