I began pumping with an Animas pump in 2009 and now…
Pumping with Tandem t:slim X2!
The delivery! Look at all this stuff!
I did not read the manual. There are 348 pages for pete’s sake! (I hardly ever read manuals. Drives my husband nutty.)
I had promised the trainer that I wouldn’t start it up until she had been here. But, I played with the buttons.
I copied all my settings to Diasend, printed them out for the trainer for the t:slim.
I had ordered a pump skin earlier in the week from Tallygear.com.
On Monday morning, I assembled all the stuff. Good grief!
Wanting to dress appropriately for this occasion – I had to choose a d-shirt.
Goodbye Animas Ping. We had a great friendship! (Taken before setting up the t:slim, therefore the clock isn’t set.)
Who knew that learning how to use a new pump could be fun? Erica, the Tandem trainer for up here in the woods – Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont – came to the house. We enjoyed lunch from a nearby deli and then we began.
And then we hooked up Dexcom. Amazingly, my transmitter had been showing signs and warnings of departure (aka time for a new one), so we paired up a new one with the pump and my phone.
Thanks Erica, for teaching me how to use my new t:slim!
And this morning is a beautiful morning.
