Embracing Life & the Child with the Disease

Pump Update . . .

For those of you following our insulin pump journey . . .

I just got off the phone with or pump of choice . . . OMNIPOD.  The PDM (personal diabetes manager – the handheld device) and one month of pods will arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. 

I spoke with a CDE today and they said they have us “penciled in” for a December 9th, six-hour class to learn how to use the OmniPod and learn new insulin therapy.  If I understand correctly, we will have a week of saline trial, a follow-up class to go over those results and then we can go live when we are ready. 

It’s going a little quicker than I first anticipated.  Whew!

P.S.  My baby, Aaron (5), came home today wanting to take his Kindergarten teacher a blue jelly diabetes bracelet.  I LOVED that!  ❤

  1. Oh yay! For some reason I think December is months away and it only WEEKS! It will be here before you know it! Yahoo!

    What’s a jelly bracelet?

  2. Congrats and enjoy the journey! It’s going to be here before you know it 🙂

  3. Yay! AND congrats. Joe went on the pump in December 4 years ago. I was nervous with the holidays etc, but it all worked out great. I cannot wait to follow your journey. Sometimes it takes a bit to get the basals and ratios situated, but good hell, even those of us that have had our kids on the pump for years still don’t have all that situated…”d” is always changing the game on us.

    Love that your baby wanted to do that…WAY COOL!
