New Animas Ping Arrived (but no real direction)

My new Animas Ping and three months worth of supplies arrived! This was all covered by insurance, how crazy! Thousands of dollars! I am so thankful! See my link below for the first time I used my pump with Saline, with only youtube direction.

What do you mean no direction? I'm looking into getting a pump.

Hi Mandi - I was under a time crunch because I was relocating to Canada and switching jobs/insurances. There is usually a nurse and I was supposed to go back to my doctor for training, but didnt have the time. I tried saline, but have not tried insulin yet. Everyone raves about the pump, but havent made the plunge yet. I will let you know when I do. Check out my blog www.trainedbyinsulin.com

I see. I actually just did the saline pump and am going to talk with the rep for the medtronic pumps tomorrow. I will have to check out your blog! And good luck to you!
