The man in brown!

Around 4 pm, the UPS truck pulled up for the second time today. (The first time he was bringing my dad's mail order prescriptions. Just imagine my disappointment.)

So I immediately opened the box to find all of this:

Then this:

And this:

But wait there's more! And more!


And more that I didn't take pictures of including the clip, case, cartridges, extra cleo infusion sets, and the actual pump on it's own. I am beyond excited. I am also really surprised at the size of the pump. Yes, I have seen some in person, but I have never held one in my hand. It's so cute! Oh and the new boy has a name, Orin. It means "little green one" (extremely literal) in Gaelic, or at least that's what wikipedia & babynamesworld.com say.

Wow! Cool! I got a visit from the UPS guy too. I got Lucille today (That's my Animas 2020, named after B.B King's guitar).

Sriram- Congrats!!!

Orin--cool! Let me know how you like it. I've considered that pump, but had reservations. Congrats, and welcome to pumpin'! :)

I'm so excited for you! I think you'll really like it.

Welcome home Orin! OOOhh you lucky duck with a new clip case that swivels 360°, or so I have heard!

Donna said...

I am so happy for you. I remember the joy of getting my pump last year. There's nothing like it! Congratulations!

Cara said...

Yeah! I remember getting my box from MiniMed in April of '06! It was soooooo exciting! I'm just sorry you have to wait so long to hook up.
p.s. I like the name.

Amylia - I will be updating everyone with my feelings about the Cozmo and just my pumping experience in general. I do not plan on ever becoming a pump pusher though! I can't stand that. What works for some may not work for others. And I am glad you like the name!

Christine-Megan - Thanks! I hope I really do too!

Chrissie - The black case only swivels 180, the clear clip is 360. They are both available in the online store (at least the US one, I don't know if there is a different website for overseas).

Donna - Thanks, it really is unimaginably exciting!

Cara - Glad you like the name! I can not believe I would ever be so excited for anything related to diabetes.
