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?
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 :)
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.
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
US Hispanics are often portrayed in the press as a single, monolithic group. But anyone who has spent any time in San Francisco’s Mission District or the Bronx can tell you, we’re not all the same. Now we’re finding out Read on! →
