I would have liked the pink, but the one they sell here in Canada is a yucky pink compared to the colour you get in the US. Wierd huh? That the colour we have here in our country would differ. Goes the same way for cars, etc. Still haven't come up with a name for "Limey" - for now - that's what I'm calling it until I get a brain fart and I or someone else comes up with a better one! Like Miss Pingy (sounds like Miss Piggy ).
thanks Sarah,I accept any form of consolation :)
I really think so,there are no Dexcom here in my area so no chance of CGM only,bu the pump integrated would be so beneficial,specially that I can cancel the basal rate and lower it.
really thanks :) it kind of makes me feel better to see someone understands it when I look sad and say no pump for me,no one quite understood save one friend only who knew how I felt about the pump.I am gonna ask them the next appt. which is 2 months far.
Sarah - so far I'm sticking with Limey (re: your comment on my blog link I posted here at Tudiabetes - you can see the full blog at the link below). One person had commented on my blog at Diabetes1.org - and had listed some fun names! I'm up for any other suggestions - so bring it on!
Psst, do you have a name for your pump (what colour is it? Of course, you know mine is lime green - it looks smaller for some reason then Antonio, who was blue). Last nite at my 1st exec meeting (am VP of West Island Diabetes Association) - they didn't realise I was wearing a pump - they were fascinated watching me bolus for a chocolate cherry (they are all Type 2 - but strange they don't know about counting carbs even tho' they're not on insulin).
Hello there Sarah. Thanks for the add. Love to be your friend =) I enjoy your blogs so much. All I can say is that they are insightful, witty, practical, and downright funny and entertaining sometimes. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
Oh you are so lucky - you are getting a PING! I could get one now, they are here in Canada next month ... finally ... but in order to upgrade - it's a $1,000. Don't have that kind of $$$'s. Just like the remote bit with the PING.
What colour are you getting? My 2020 is blue, but when I was at the IDF congress - I managed to get Animas to give me a pump cover (it's like rubber) - in purple! They will be here in Canada in a few months (aren't you glad you don't live here - it's like we're in the friggin' Stone Ages!).
So, here's to many years of pumping! May your live improve to the point that you no longer feel like you have diabetes! I know that's how I feel now since being on the pump - free as a bird - snag - on the door knob (trust me - this may happen a few times - but no harm was done to myself or Antonio - the name of my pump).

Bonjour Sarah - thanks for adding me as a friend! Can't wait to hear about your new pump (what are you getting?). I came across one that I'd never heard of yesterday at the IDF Diabetes World Congress - smaller then my Animas 2020 - lighter - holds 300 units - they let me stamp on it to see how strong it was. I think I threw them off with some of my answers! I am a bad diabetic - aren't I?
Take care and stay healthy!
