I got an insulin pump!

I just got my first insulin pump. This morning I worked with a rep from Roche to setup my ACCU-CHEK Combo. I'm anxious and excited. Anxious because using and insulin pump requires more care than using insulin pens. I've used insulin pens for almost eight years. Change is sometimes scary. But I'm excited to be starting a new chapter of my diabetes management system.

I had a week before today to get comfortable with the combo glucose meter. This device is incredible. I love being able to enter my meal carbs after taking a reading and getting bolus advice. I love that I can control my pimp right from the glucose meter.

I have a dexcom g4 CGMS and now I have two devices to help me manage my diabetes. I'm so excited!
