Loving the pod

We love the Omnipod. We're not really on it yet. Just the saline trial. But it's in many ways so much easier than shots. And I love that I can check her trends and I don't have to get cranky that one of us forgot to fill out the log book. I get cranky about that alot.

What I don't love is the test strips. And the light for the strip is pretty useless in a dark room. But that's why they invented night lights. I also don't like the waiting period . We should hear from Insulet in 3-5 days what the insurance will cover. 3-5 days! Lol. That's like a life time! I'm nervous though. Hopefully our insurance will accept that having one is a medical neccesity. It'll make a huge difference in her levels and ability to self-manage. And it's cheaper than a trip to the hospital. Come on insurance!

I keep meaning to do a diabetes related craft. I have some things floating around in my head but I just haven't gotten to it yet.

  1. Good luck! I was crazy about the Omnipod too, until they confirmed for me that the wouldn't be changing the IOB feature to keep track of active insulin from carb boluses. That's a safely feature I rely alot on. I was so bummed!!!!

    Anyway, I have a couple pals who just started their kiddos -- one of them is having issues with pod failures/PDM errors, but the other one seems to be doing well.

    Hope it goes well for you too!
