[IP] MY FIRST DAY ON THE PUMP :o) ANY THOUGHTS???



well, i must say other than the devastating news about my kidneys, THE PUMP 
IS AWESOMEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!  i haven't had sugars like this in 15 years......LOL
here's about what happened today:

CORRECTION BOLUS:  1:50       CARB RATIO:  1:15     TARGET:  120
                                  BASAL:   0.5/HR
11:00  -308-   had no ultralente now for 24 hours..... did correction bolus 
of 3.7
1:00   -145-     yippie... i'm within 30 of my target
2:00  -127-     humalog peak @3 hours????
3:00  -116-     had some soup and crackers and cookies..... did a DUAL BOLUS 
of
                  1.3 and then the other 2.3 over 1/2 hour.... gave another 
1.3 for 
                   cookies
5:00   -118-    wowwie!!!!!!  never had a post-p so close to target!!!
6:00   -119-    kewl!
7:00   -121-    even kewler!
9:00   -205-   correction bolus of 1.7
10:00   -127-   pretty good......... had some chips!!  gave SQUARE BOLUS of 
1.7
11:00    -142-   good number for bedtime
12:00   -70-   WHAT HAPPENED??????

so my thought again is i should not have bolused for the carbs in the 
chips!!!  any thoughts?

ps   for all of you thinking about going on the pump, DO IT!!  i haven't seen 
sugars like this for years and years..... except for the low which i've seen 
all too often  :O(
