On Thursday February 12th at 1 pm Arden will officially begin using the OmniPod insulin pump!  If all goes as planned... tomorrow will mark the end of Arden suffering through seven or more needle sticks a day.  Yes she will still have to test her BG with a finger stick but eliminating needles will bring her some much deserved relief.  I estimate that Arden has received 7,000 injections since her diagnosis.  Her injection sites have taken about as much as they can.  

 

I’m anticipating that the next three weeks will be very intensive as I work with the pump team at CHOP to fine tune the pump and it’s insulin delivery.  Keep checking back for updates, I’ll be using the site as a diary to help myself keep track of this transition.
