Taking the Plunge.

Since I know that many of you have been keeping an interest in my OmniPod trial (which I greatly appreciate by the way), I thought it fair to share with you my decision.

Today I forwarded my request to submit the paperwork for getting my own OmniPod system. Yes I am taking the plunge. I have thought long and hard about this. And with the help of podder friends, both old and new, as well as my hubby and sister, my decision is to go for it. I’m anxiously hoping my experience with a brand new system will go more smoothly than my trial had. However I know in the back of my mind, if it doesn’t work out, I can always go back to my trustworthy Ping pump.

So there it is. I am taking a new step in my insulin pumping life. And of course I will share with you the experience of my transition.

  1. I hope that starting with OmniPod goes much more smoothly than your trial did. I don’t know what it’s like to actually have another pump, but starting on OmniPod really improved my life from my multiple daily injections.

  2. Best wishes! I hope it’s amazing for you!!!!!

    My daughter is 8 — just starting to take the reigns without me there hovering from time to time. I can’t let her do it without the security of IOB. IOB has stopped her from giving unnecessary insulin too many times. And the fact that the Ping remote has been left behind a few times, necessitating a pump bolus in it’s absence.

    May your new journey be more than you ever could have dreamed of :)

  4. Best wishes on your switch. My youngest son was diagnosed in Dec. 2010 and started on the Omnipod and Dexcom in June 2010. He wanted the Omnipod because it was tubeless. We really like it :)
