Team Olivia Update and Misc.

It's been awhile and much is happening in our little diabetic corner of the world. First, we received word today that TeamOlivia was the highest fundrasing team in the local Tour de Cure. Just shy of 15000 dollars. Way to go teamand all of our supporters!!!

Also, last week Olivia's pump arrived via UPS. Everyone here is filled with excitement and anxiety. We went with the Animas 1250 because of the small increments and the small size. It's tiny. Thank God I don't have to pay for this thing. Beaucoup dollars. Olivia seems ready to get hooked up. She starts on saline August 1 and on insulin August 8. We still have much to learn. We have been meeting with the dietician regularly to improve our advanced carb counting skills and will meet with DE three times before P-Day. I think it will be worth it. I don't think I'll miss all those syringes and I'm sure Olivia won't.
