Congratulation! and Welcome.

I had exactly the same concern as you for the same reason. The mechanics or
logic of pumping did not concern me much but I had never used Humalog before
and was nervous about that. Fortunately, there proved to be no unexpected
issues associated with the Humalog and I can tell you that if I ever have to
go back to MDI I will continue to use Humalog if possible. The one issue I
did have is that it appeared to take several days (3-5) to get all the LENTE
insulin out of my systems. Lots of low BGs and ultimately meaningless
variations in basal rates during that period.

Good luck and good pumping.
