Howdy-Doo Pumpy-Poo!

Well it's been a while...but I finally received my Animas Ping Pump 4 days ago and I love it!  I will list my loves right now:
1.  My bg stays around the same number for 2-3 hours, amazing!
2.  I like my pink insets and pink skin decor.
3.  It seems that I respond better to the doses than when using MDIs.
4.  I have had a bad cold and haven't experienced the consistant highs that usually go along with that.  I've only had to up my doses a couple times due to stubborn numbers. 
5.  I DO NOT MISS SHOTS!

My fiance finds it sorta funny how I love my new toy.  I haven't seen my bill for it yet, but we'll deal with that when it comes, as for sure I'm not going back to shots any time soon. 

Background:  I go to the International Diabetes Center at Park Nicollet Clinic in MN.  I appreciate the fun, well-informed ladies that work there and the great thing is that many of them are diabetics, so they can share real-life information with you.  I also had a great rep from Animas with us when I was introduced to my pump.  Highly recommended.
