I just watched the video. It was extremely helpful, as I have never seen a pump or pod actually being inserted. I have a head start for next week. Thanks for the link. Is the best place for assistance with omnipod questions the omnipod group?

Thank you Marie. I'm still trying to get the hang of getting my DM under control. My daughter disgorged this year and I was last year. Look forward to meeting new friends who understand

Hi Marie - hope things are going well for you.

Hi Marie - and thanks for the welcome aboard message.

I'm somewhat lost with my diabetic control at this time and looking to re-establish that - hence the decision to join tudiabetes.

Cheers,

Andrew.

Hi Marie :)
Thanks for your warm welcome. I'm not actually sure what I'm looking for yet - I'm still in quite a stunned state of disbelief about my diagnosis. I have a healthy BMI, and in the space of three weeks I went from a type 2 diagnosis taking no medications at all to taking two types of tablets, insulin, and cholesterol drugs. And it's forever - disbelief! I'm just reading lots on your community. Knowledge is power, right?
Vanessa :)

Thanks, Marie! Right now I am looking for experienced adult Omnipod users. I start on the pump June 11th.

Hi - Thanks for the welcome. I have been on the pump for just over and year and haven't really had any issues. Though, the first night I was running a temporary basal (didn't know this at the time) and when it ended in the middle of the night, it kept beeping and I couldn't figure out why. At some point I turned it off and it kept telling me that I needed to turn it back on. oops!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I just joined but I have been active in other forums for nearly twenty years. My diabetes is very well controlled with an A1c of 4.8 for more than 2.5 years. My last A1c earlier this year (January) slipped a bit to 4.9 due to holiday season excesses but I have been back on track ever since. I joined primarily to help others but have been too busy with other priorities.

Hi Marie, at some point we had a conversation about my late wife's quilting. My daughter is visiting and we got out one of her quilts to show to her new husband, so I finally got around to taking some pics. Billie did this when my daughter was 3 or so. She copied pictures from a book we had called "Orange Crate Art". I thought she was crazy when she embarked on this project, but she pulled it off. It's all machine embroidered and machine quilted. There are 12 panels all together. The quilting pattern is an orange surrounded by leaves as it would appear on the tree.

Hi Marie: Yes, Brande and I just got married on January 11, on the beach below our house! There are ways that the world is changing for the better. And thanks for the compliment, if you have any suggestions for a blog topic that I might tackle (keeping along the lines of my typical themes) I'd be happy to consider it/have suggestions. That top 10 tips has gotten a lot of mileage! And thanks to YOU for all you do! A wonderful community, so nice to have.

Just got through to Reed on the phone - summary on the discussion page.

Hi Marie, Thanks again for the card. It was really nice to get it. Rick sent one too so I felt really cared about! Thanks too for info about Reed. I hope he is strong enough to come home soon. I hope he is hanging in there. How unfortunate. Wouldn't you know he would break a hip. If anyone can, it is he who will overcome it.
There is a question on my page from diabeticmom about a pump. I said I would let you know about it. Thanks, Ellen

Marie, I tried calling Reed's room last night and there was no answer. Then I called the main # and they said yes, he was still a patient there. Has anyone been in contact wit him?
