NOT YET. Mimimed rep put the wrong name on the CGM, and the pump has taken a while to arrive. It should be at the doc's office today, so i'll have to wait until next week to go in and get set up.

I'm excited about the CGM. I think it'll finally help get good control. I just wish it didn't involve wearing yet another attachment on my body, but it'll be worth it.

I'll keep you updated.

Boat was one I used in Hawaii 2 weeks ago, not mine. Alas, no Tu party unless we all show up in Oahu. Not a bad idea though...

Anthony...general anesthesia love it. Gald the Tegaderm is working for you. Things are going good except for yesterday my bg never went over all day until 10 pm when it was 120. My summer is going great, John and I are planing our wedding.

How's your summer?

Hi Anthony how are you doing? Have you found anything that works to keep your sensors on better yet?

Good day Anthony. Hope your day is going well and your week end was well also. John and I just got back from a mini, mini vacation to San Francisco it was really nice. About the sensor thing it is do able on your own without someone help if you have a mirror to use.

Hi Anthony, thanks for the welcome. I work in a transplantation research lab at Beth Israel/HMS. We research islet transplantation, among other tissues. I wish that I had much better progress to report, but in my under-a-decade experience in the field I've already seen several promising therapies turn out to be big-time disappointments!

Wow - Never saw this comment. Anthony - thanks. I'm over in Stockbridge but do get in to Boston once in a while to see friends, my niece or for a Tweetup or 140Conf event. Was there last Tuesday. If you are on Twitter I'm @PAWeissenstein over there and I usually post when I'm going to be in Beantown so if you'd like to meet for coffee next time I'm out that way let me know. Direct email (best way to reach me) is Cheers!

Trying to keep my chin up and taking one thing at a time. Exhausted is exactly how felt yesterday. Thanks to John (my boyfriend) I made it through this weekend so far. He started a discussion on here and got information to help him help me. Don't know what I would do without him. Mom had surgery on Friday and she already looks better than she did before it.

Anthony enjoy the weather you have. Here in Chicago it is cool perfect spring weather. Have not been able to enjoy it.

I'm having a rough weekend. My mom had open heart surgery Friday and the stress from worrying about her has not played nice with my BG.

I see your a Type 2 and little old me is a Type 1. I really don't want to give off the wrong info here b/c they are really 2 different dieases but with one thing in commom. NO SUGAR and we have to cut back on portions. I'll be here anytime but for warn you that most of the info I give on Type 2's is what I've read here.....................Well that and dealing with a Type 2 grandfather and A type 2 dad that didn't and dosen't follow their diet.

Thanks for calling me a smart lady! No really I'm pumping and it took ALOT to get me on it 22 years ago (now love it and have no clue how I got by without it) The senser when I had to ware it for 3 days for my dr was just too many mecanichs for me. I had this thing about living off a machine and I guess I still do.

You got sunshine? Over here in TN it's raining on and off! NO FAIR!!! LOL!!!

I don't use the senser but alot of ppl here do and from what I've read and you said it sounds like the senser might be a little old. Sounds like you had your share of ice cream though! LOL! I use hard candy when I have it for lows I have been know to put 2 teaspoons of sugar in a glass and put about 1/2 glass of water in a 4 oz glass and drink it FAST! It really don't taste all that good! LOL!

Your right you should have done a finger prick 1st off. Won't preach on that b/c it looks like you saw your mistake. LOL
