My First Insulin Pump Has Arrived

Introducing my brand new Animas Ping Insulin Pump. Take a look.


 She's pink because she's a girl.  Here she is again modeling her fashionable tie-dye pump skin.



I decided to name my pink pump X.P.U. which is short for...

eXternal 
Pancreatic  
Unit

Um... I did mention I was a dork, right? Just checking. I put in X.P.U.'s battery and configured the date and time, but beyond that I don't have the right information yet. I'll see Donna at my endo's office on Monday. I'll also meet with a trainer from Animas. For now I'm still doing the insulin pen tango.

Still, I'm glad XPU has arrived. She is going to change my life. Thanks to all the people in the DOC who reached out to me, my family, and my awesome medical team, I'm looking forward to the future.
