Here it is!
It has arrived! My insulin pump has finally arrived today after a long wait! I was supposed to receive it on Wednesday, but instead I received it today. There were a few mix ups with Medtronic and Fedex, but finally after patiently waiting I received my purple pump!
I haven't been able to write for awhile because I have been very busy and stressed! This has been a very stressful week because I have had to make a lot of phone calls and such. With the insulin pump arriving as well, I have been far from bored.
When I received my insulin pump it was almost a shock. Yes, I have seen many pumps, but they were all attached to someone else - it wasn't mine. I had been waiting to receive a pump since January and holding it in my hand was almost surreal. This is my purple pump!
I was super excited to get it - I went on Skype with Clinton to share the excitement of my brand new pump! My pump start date is July 24th! So I do have 2 more weeks of 4 needles a day and it actually will be a little sad to leave those pens behind. This is a HUGE lifestyle adjustment, but I am jumping in with two feet and not going to worry or stress. I know that I can do anything I set my mind too.
Among my pump business I also received a scholarship to go to the Friends for Life conference in Vancouver - However, I cannot go because I will be in Panama. I was very upset about this because I really, really wanted to go, but I have already booked to go to Panama. I am very happy that I received the scholarship and very thankful - I am very sad that I will not be able to go. There are always other years!
So, I am back to blogging now that this crazy week has past!
