Omnipod and Dexcom

My pump has been out of warranty since last august.  I've waited and waited to order a new one.  I know my insurance will cover it but I was hoping something awesome would be approved in the states.  Now I can't wait any more.  I think my pump is dying ... she's sucking through batteries like crazy.   So I took the plunge and filled out the forms today for an omnipod and a dexcom.  I'm so worried about getting the omnipod ... what if i lose the pda??? will i miss my tubing??? i've been going back and forth for a few days and then today when I went to leave my house and the tube to my minimed got caught on the door knob i decided it would be worth it.  I'm not nervous about the dexcom ... I've known for a long time that I wanted it, I just needed to stop being lazy.  Hopefully all of this will be approved asap and I'll have my new pump and cgm soon.  Any advice for either???

Here's the lil man ... he'll be 7 months tomorrow!

  1. A tip about the batteries--this might not be the case for you, but I had a stockpile of batteries because my pump didn't go through them very fast. All of a sudden, my pump was speeding through the batteries and I realized that the batteries probably lost some of their power the longer they stayed in my stockpile. Not sure if that's what's going on with yours, but just something to keep in mind!
