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! ❤
