It's here. My pump. The application and approval process went like greased lightening. Since then I have been reading anything and everything about pump life waiting for February 6th to come... the day it would be delivered. But wait a minute, yesterday - February 5th, after running my kids to swim lessons, I returned home to find a "we missed you" note from UPS. It had gotten here early, almost mocking me. UPS would hold it another day and return on the 6th. :>(

Knowing it would be delivered today, I planned my schedule so that I would be here all day, except for one quick kid pick-up around noon. Fortunately, I had someone at my house while I was out. And wouldn't you know it, that's when UPS showed up again. This time I had them; and the package from Medtronic was signed for and waiting for me when I returned home.

Now that it's here I have some more waiting to do. I have a "pre-pump" education class with my ATL hospital ed center scheduled in a few days to circle up on my insulin use, etc. Then, I'll know from then, when I can have my "certified" training and hopefully get off MDI's. Looking forward to it, but still waiting...
