Pump It Up!

Finally having my exams end on Wednesday, was such a relief. Cannot believe that I have completed my freshman year of college already!  I also finally decided that I wanted to double major and will be starting the Expanded Duty Dental Assisting Program next spring and then Dental Hygiene Program right after that :D
Hopefully I will not have many patients like him ;)
On another note, I started my insulin pump today (hints the title of this post) :]  I have been having severe low blood sugars and as much as we change my ratios around I just felt it was best to start on the pump.  Extremely nerve wracking and actually started getting light headed when we were inserting my infusion set, but everything worked out well.

This is my new meter & pump. I can use my meter to send a "text" like message to my pump without even touching my pump to give me the right amount of insulin.
This is the actual pump that I got (lime green of course!)
Hoping for good results!

I'll leave you with this quote that has helped me over the past week:
"Anyone can give up.  It's the easiest thing in the world to do.  But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength"

  1. I am so proud of you! I think you will be happier with your pump! I have a student who started on one last year. It seems to make life a lot easier. So glad to hear about your dental hygiene major. I love my dental hygienist!I've been with her about 18 years! Love, Mrs. D.


Leave a sweet treat :)
