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.

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.
Congratulations & all the best to you, Stacey! I’m excited for you! I hope this works the way you want & you gain what you’re looking for out of it.
That’s wonderful news, Stacey. Sometimes a change is good and it can motivate us some more. I hope it goes well for you and can’t wait to hear about the transition. 🙂
I’m glad you decided and I hope you’ll be happy with your new portable pancreas. 😉
That is SO great! Keep us posted… I might be right behind you. I am getting a little tired of tubing myself. 🙂
Yay! I hope this works out to be exactly what you need.
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 🙂
way to jump right in, stacey! i hope you love it!
I guess I just have an odd attachment to my tubing. I don’t think I can give it up 🙂
But I am getting closer to a company switch.
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 🙂
