Thanks for the friend request! How's your pump working out for you? I have an Animas, too.

Hi, I'm going well, thank you for asking!
I'm stuck in the end of semester madness...writing papers and studying for finals, so I haven't really been on here in awhile. Only another week though and I'm on break for 12 weeks before I return and do my final semester, yay!!
Hope things are going well for you. :)

Yes all is well with me, exept that I did get a flooded basement this weekend! Broken pipe, so that has kept me really busy! But I am really happy I have found this site, I haven't had time to look at it very much due to my little weekend disaster! Oh well, it was time to change the colors on the walls anyways!

Switching to the pump wasn't difficult, it's just different... I think it helped that I was new to the T1 status so I didn't have the shot regimen stuck in my head... I love it so far!!!

you are welcome, it seems rude to press 'ignore'.

Thanks for the friendship. I see we share the same profession. Is the information about the Animas still up to date? In my opinion the Animas team did a nice job with the data export. All in nice XML and well defined data objects. I am sure with your experience in system analysis you have a different take on our Glucosurfer project. Just let us know - we are always open for new ideas and improvements. Holger

No problem dude!

Thanks Dude! That meter sounds like it will fit me and my life style perfectly! I have a One Touch Ultra Mini and I really like it but with all the new technology and everything, I love how the Endo doctor just plugs it in :) Plus, no replacing the battery ... AWESOME :D Do you find that the Contour UBS meter is accurate?

Glad to hear your cold is better. The malaria seems to have gone, just waiting on my last test results to see if it's completely gone...but it seems to have ended the last of my honeymoon phase, grrr! Australia has had a bit going on lately, I'm rather lucky where I am since we managed to avoid all of it.

Hi! Very nice to meet you. How are things in the Great White North? Thanks so much for the friend invitation. I also really enjoy the community atmosphere. This site seems so much more accessible than all the others I've been. Be well!

Sometimes sunny, mostly rainy!! I'm in Calgary right now though, so it's just FREEZING. How's things over in Ottawa?!

Hey Dude, thanks for the friend request :) I see that you use the Bayer Contour USB meter. How do you like it? Any advice about it? I might be getting one! Thanks :D
At 3:33pm on February 25, 2011, Leah W said…
Hey, yeah i'm getting over the malaria pretty well, just a bit tired still. Hope you are getting over your cold :)

Hey Dude! I've been spending abit of time lately in Ottawa (if you read my latest blog - you'll know why). So, you're looking at getting all pumped up (think of Arnie when I say this). Well, if you have as good control on MDI (multiple dosage injections) with that great A1C - you will be a happy camper with the pump. Lucky you tho' - with the pump program in Ontario. One of the reasons I keep on eyeing Ontario border for moving back - since owning a pump without insurance is darn expensive! Next time I'm in Ottawa - we'll have to meet up! I'm also on Facebook - if you want to connect up there.
