I'm sitting in my living room, looking at my bounty - my Dexcom CGM and Ping have arrived, along with 3 months of sensors, infusion sets, and other assorted goodies. I must say...I'm a bit overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of stuff here, but I'm also really excited. And the green Ping is just adorable! I can't wait to try everything out.

Congrats! Let the adventure begin ;) I had to clear 2 shelves in a closet for all the D stuff, then a third for more stuff. Works better than my usual non-system of leaving things where they lay,I can find it all.

My ping is pink. Have fun bardowlatry.

I have a similar non-system, which is why all my pump stuff is still in the box in my living room. I have an appointment to get started with it on Wednesday, so it'll have a new home by then!

I just found out I'm finally getting my dexcom on Wed, so we'll both be starting on a new adventure together lol.

Awesome! I've been using a loaner for the past couple weeks and LOVE it! I'm looking forward to swapping out for my own now.

And the Dexcom comes with such goodies - it has its own little neoprene sleevey thing! :)

Congrats! My ping actually came in the mail today as well. The dexcom came two weeks ago but I can def see how it feels overwhelming, im feeling a bit of the same. Cant wait to learn how to use all of it. Good Luck!
