Re: [IP] Pump Date Moved Up

Hi Donna -

I would say, get the earliest start time you can - because it takes a whiile
after that to adjust!!!
I would say at least 30 days, if not more.  I got mine jauary 17th this
year, but am still adjusting and still learning!  This morning when I got up
late (which I could NOT have done in my pre-pump days), I lived to
wake up!!!!!!!!!!  No insulin reactions - no anything - I was just sleeping
(I did check my bloos dusgar last night
tho').  I think you will like it - get it EARLY!  Can't hurt anything!  And
use this web site becuase a lot of pumpers are on this , and everyone
respoonds to questions - as you'll see from this one!

Good Luck!     Jane
