After being derailed emotionally by our daughter's T1D dx 7 months ago, I'm starting to feel very fragile again as we look into insulin pumps. The idea of a pager-size device playing such a huge role in DD's life is scary. It's also exciting that she will be able to get a little freedom back. We are considering the Medtronic pump, but doubt comes into play if we are making the right choice. Our other option is the Animas Ping. From what I've read on the forums, it seems to be a matter of personal choice. I'd love any insights! Sorry to sound manic!!
