[IP] The 18th day...

Well everyone, I figured it's time to give a little update on my progress.
As most of you know, I started pumping without my doc's OK and without the
CDE teaching me anything. (as per the post that read, "I did a bad bad
thing") Anyhow, this is my 18th day of pumping and everything has been going
GREAT!! My blood sugars have been 'perfect' for the most part, except when I
put the infusion set in wrong, but I quickly corrected that problem. I love
this pumping thing, it's awesome, changed my life already and I'll NEVER go
back to injections. I set my own basal rates with help from a friend...
Gina, thank you!! And I've not had to change them much at all. I only have 2
different rates, .7 from 8am to 10pm and from 10pm to 8am, it's .6. I use a
15 to 1 ratio and a correction of 1 per 50. My CDE told me that was about
average and she was proud of me for taking the initiative! I know there's
going to be days when I have problems but so far, so good. Oh, I did get an
alarm one night and had to fix it but it was really nothing and I was fine. I
want to thank everyone here for all their help and kindness. I've had some
bad days and when I told you all, you made things better for me and made me
laugh ... you're like my 2nd family!! I really appreciate you all. (Even
though I seem very sarcastic at times, I do care)
