A Tear for a Year of "Me and Master P"

It has been one year since Master P joined my crusade for better D control. It has been a bumpy ride at times but I love him.

In case you are wondering, Master P is my insulin pump. My medicinal life partner. I go no where without him, except for the shower, and the swimming pool. He hates water!

Anyhow, this 722 is ready to go the next level. I am hoping that some extra money will be coming my way soon so I can get me one of them there CGM's for this bad boy.

Master P keeps telling me, "MAN you do not even know the cool s*** I can do!" (he swears a lot) "Hook me up with one of those sexy CGM's with the curvy backside and step the h*** back because, Master P will be ready to kick the s*** out of high BG's! BOOYAH!"

I tell him to watch his mouth around the kids but he swears that all they hear is 3 beeps.

I trust him with my insulin delivery so I have to trust him on that one too.

I want to thank all of you who have offered advice and help with my pump especially at the beginning. The OC rocks!

Happy anniversary! You should think about moving to the Paradigm pump, or is that what you already have? I love mine, and love that it has radio frequency connection with my meter.

I am looking into getting a CGMS as well, but it's a bit pricey and I am worried that it might hard to insert as my pregnancy continues. I realize that it would be ideal for the pregnancy, but something about putting it into my hard belly scares me!

Good thing you don't have to think about that! Tee hee hee...

Keep on pumping, brother. Keep your chin up and keep up the good work.

You mean, every time my pump beeps, it's really swearing at me??? I think you have something there.

Congrats on your first year of pumping!

Annie, I have a CGMS (dexcom, but I did trial with minimed) and put the sensor on thighs or butt - you don't have to use the stomach! I've also used side-above-hips but that may catch in your pants, etc.

I can't believe it's been a year already.

I remember when you were just a pup and deciding to get a grip on your D control.

You're growing up right before our very eyes (wipes away a fallen tear).

You've done an incredibly awesome job!

Wow man! G-Money - you have come a LONG way!

Way to go! You have a lot to be proud of man - you've done a LOT of hard work.

Rock on!

Congratulations, G and Master P - Almost looks like Grand Master P... LOL...

And good luck with the CGMS... Of course, I'll be looking to hear all about it...

Funny! Mine is Ms. OP (OmniPod), and she loves water. But I don't wear bikinis with her 'cause she's such a show-off.
