Much, Much Better

Scott Benner

Arden and I went to the aquarium yesterday and having the Omnipod made the day better!  These outing have been trying in the past.  Between extended car travel and often less then healthy foods at the venues, Arden has suffered with higher then normal or safe blood glucose levels so that we could get through the day without a low blood glucose incident.  These high levels effect her mood and make her feel sluggish and sick.

Yesterday I am happy to report that no such high or low levels were experienced, I was much more relaxed and able to enjoy myself and Arden and I had a wonderful time at the aquarium, perhaps the first such time in many years... and I’m thanking the OmniPod for it.  Until a cure is found, research and technology is clearly going to be Arden’s saving grace.

Hey Scott,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note.  I really enjoy your and Arden’s blog.  It is nice to see things work out once in awhile.  Best of luck with the Omnipod.
