I have been diabetic for 18+ years. I've been pumping since August 20, 2008 with a Minimed Paradigm 722. When I began pumping I was very excited.
But nowhere near as excited as I am now.
I'm switching over to an Animas Ping. It should arrive October 12. I'm excited about the freedom of not worrying if it gets wet. I'm excited about the more exact bolus and basal rates. I'm excited to be able to bolus from my METER.
Heck, I'm just excited to have a new gadget :)
