It has been a long time since I have written a bit. I have been super busy working as head paper pusher… LOL. The pump is still awesome and the CGMS is pretty good too. The only bad thing I've found is you never get a warning when the sensor is about to run out. Most of the time, I can wear my sensor for 3 days before it needs to be charged up, but every now and then it has to be charged after two days. I don't know why this happens. I charge my sensor at least 20 minutes as recommended. On my days to go to the gym, my sensor always runs out. Coincidence, I think not ;) I hate constantly pricking my fingers just to make sure my sugar situation is A okay.
I have a doctor’s appointment in a month to check my A1C. I am hoping to see a big improvement, but who knows. I still have problems with sugar highs between the hours of 3am to 7am. I am still figuring out the tweaking part. I assume I will be tweaking my blood sugar for many years to come.

Yes, I guess tweaking is a lifestyle for us :)

Thanks for the update!
