New Beginnings.

new pump

I’m looking forward to fresh beginnings today, as I just started with my new Medtronic MiniMed pump, which was overnighted to me to replace my older pump.  I know that I have been vocal regarding pump issues, but as with anything diabetes-related, the problems are incredibly complex and multifaceted.  While there will always be the occasional bumps in the road when it comes to technology that steps in for a malfunctioning pancreas, the sheer number of issues that we have experienced of late insinuates that there is another culprit always lurking behind the scenes: diabetes being its menacing self.

The repeated issues are not a direct result of anything that I am doing wrong particularly, nor anything that Medtronic intends to happen.  We are all in this fight together, and no one likes bad pump days.  Period.  We all just want to feel healthy each day.  I would like to especially thank Angie of Medtronic who has spent many hours on the phone troubleshooting with me and has been incredibly kind and patient through out this process.

Praying for a smooth transition over to the new pump…  I wish all of you other pumpers and non-pumpers a drama-free weekend when it comes to diabetes.  We’ve got this.
