Received my pump on Monday, going "live" 11/8

I am so excited, I just had to share with everyone.  I got my Animas Ping on November 1st and will be going "live" (actually using insulin and not saline in her) on Monday the 8th.  I have had fun "playing" with all the buttons and learning all the features.  I'm very greatful to my educator as she has set up a few trainings for me over the next month or so, so I can learn all of the features without having brain overload.  I have already noticed a difference in my levels IF I use the amount of insulin that the pump suggests.  After all, it is better at math than I am.  :-D  I am looking forward to not having to do double duty next week.  Still a little apprehensive on how I will feel and making sure I don't go low, but I know it will be so much better.  My doctor had me do a A1C this week so we had a base line to see how much the improvement will be.  It came back at 8.5.  Not my highest ever (that was 11.1) but definantly much room for improvement. 

So.. as of Monday, November 8th, Freeda (that's what I named my pump) and I will be one.
