happy day everyone! it is incredibly windy here today. i am pretty sure i just saw the wicked witch fly by! so tomorrow i meet with the girls at my DEC(diabetic education centre) to make my final decision on which pump to go with. i think i will have to have them lay them all out on the table and once again take a really good look at them. i am pretty sure (98%) that the Animas Ping is the one i will go with. i know it does not have the option of a CGM at this time, but that doesn't really worry me. not sure right now that i would wear one anyway. it IS waterproof, and with 2 small grandchildren and an inground pool, that might be important 8-) it does have the remote, which i like. if i recall it is not huge or heavy like i found the Accu-Chek Combo to be. i did like the size of the Medtronic Veo, but i dont understand why, when it has it's own metre that can tell the pump your BG, why it isn't able to bolus from it too! anyway, i do believe i have made up my mind, what do you think?? LOL!
