Thanks, Jim. I am finding very helpful information here related to both the Omnipod (tried what another lady said about using the top part of her leg) and it worked great! Also interested in hearing other people's comments on the Dexcom. I am in my 2nd week of using it.

Thanks for the welcome. I see you're a postal carrier, which is probably why you have an enviable A1C. I am a high school teacher, and one year my kids were so awful that I bought some books and considered taking the civil service exam. I thought, "Hey, I could get paid for exercising! Awesome!" Unfortunately, that was also the year of the ANTHRAX! heehee, I guess every job has its pitfalls. :) Thankfully, the kids improved.

Jim - Thank you! I believe your are the one that gave me the link of "how to" for new members. I will try to attached a photo this next week; still dealing with the flu or something similar but managing OK. Again, I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
