My son's Ping arrived yesterday! Yeah! But we don't have pump start scheduled until Dec 17. :( I'm a little concerned of starting on the pump and then having Christmas only a week later, when we will be traveling by car, visiting family, etc.
In some ways, I think it might be good because both my husband and I will have some time off of work so that we can get a handle on using the pump, and of course, in our family there is always food around at the holiday so it would be nice for my son to not be getting 'extra' shots to eat or not be able to eat when others are. But in other ways I'm worried that it will be stressful/busy enough without figuring out how to use the pump, doing some of the first site changes away from home, etc.
