I officially started my Ping this morning. Right now I am pumping saline. On friday, I go back and start using insulin. Pretty easy so far. I am going to need time to adapt to changing my infusion set and rewinding. Just need to take it step by step. My CDE has me on a safe dose, and we will be adjusting accordingly. I just hope I don't go very low. I hate going low. I'll bet that is what everyone here says.
I'll check back in with ya on friday.

How exciting! Before you know it, you won't have to read the manual to do all the things you need to do. I'm sure you're testing a lot in the first few days.

Yeah, I started pumping for the first time in my life 2 weeks ago - actually it's been 16 days. During those 16 days I've tested 221 times! I'm hoping to scale it back to a more reasonable 10 tests a day pretty soon.

I get my Ping training this Friday. I'm a little excited but also a little nervous. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to pick up.
