Pump.. Pump it up...

Pump up the jam
pump it up
why you're feet are stompin

Anyone else get the Salt n Pepa in your head now?
 I hope so. 

Not that i'm jumping up and down
per say
but I did get news today that


This one to be exact
including the color

is what I will be wearing.. Soon.. very very soon. 

Medtronic has been calling me all week letting me know 
the status of my delivery
the price
and how this delivery will go. 

I will be getting my 3month supply, 
the CGM sensor's as of right now I will get 3 months
but I will have to only get 1 month supply at a time
who the heck knows..

I think it's stupid. But who am I. 

I'm happy for flexibility, 
and i'm semi- terrified. 

I know why I need to do this, I know this will help
but knowing that I don't mind using my
Humulin and Novolog 
doesn't bother me. 

I'm the person that HATES things on my skin. 
Band Aids- No 
Wraps- NO
Stickers- NO
Tape- Hate it

I do not know how I will deal with not being able to pull it out,
but I need to do this and I will. 

We'll see how long it lasts. 

Either I really enjoy it 
and my fears are swept away
or i do it for the sake
of trying it
and after a period of time
I stop using it. 

I really don't want to stop though
because the money involved to make this happen
and trust me I"m not making millions over here

means i really NEED to do this. 

Okay Body.. let's give this a try!

I find out soon, hopefully, when my start up week is
and pray for me this works, and
i'm not too miserable. 


  1. Lets just hope this will help with everything... giving you all my love and hoping for the best.. and have Austin make you an orange cover for it.

  2. Yay!!!! You can do this. I have to admit, when I first started there was one night where having the site on my was bugging me and I wished I could rip it off. But you wouldn't believe how quickly you get used to it and don't even notice it's there!!!

    As for sensors, they only ship me one box (10 sensors) at a time. I guess that is due to my insurance? But the sensors have a pretty short expiration date, so maybe that's why they don't send three months at a time?

  3. Thanks Karen for the support! They are giving me long tubing at first just to get used to it and then i can change to shorter if i want to. Is it easier to have a smaller tube than a longer tube? I know it had something to do with the sensors, but i get 3mo right now probably because of trial and error or in case while i'm learning and i ruin some.. who knows! But good to know why!!!
