Well not 100% no more needles - but pretty close.  Arden will still have to take the occasional injection after we get her pump up and running smoothly.  



Kelly and I completed the test that CHOP administers to make sure that you are ready for a pump (we got a 98%) then all of the necessary information was faxed to Insulet (they makers of the OmniPod) today.  Less then 90 minutes later Insulethad verified Arden’s information, contacted our insurance provider and set up our shipment of OmniPods - they arrive early next week.  


Wow, that was fast!  Be back soon with more...

So far the company that makes the OmniPod has been fantastic!  They were fast and friendly.  It only took them 3 hours after they received our application to verify it, contact our insurance provider and arrange for Arden to begin using the pump.  I was told that the pumps would arrive on Monday at 3pm and they were 15 minutes early.  Great first impression!
