    Lol at the pink pump :eek: Animas rang me yesterday to break the news no black pumps in stock so did I want a replacement pink or green pump. I said any colour as long as it wasn't pink. Nice lady is going to send me a black skin to hide the green colour though :)

    Good.... Thank you @himtoo! I was given two sets to try and *definitely* prefer the silhouettes!! Despite nearly having a fit when I saw the needle.... ;-)

    Do you know what which pumps you might be offered / go for after your apt in July?

    Hi @-Artemis-
    glad you settling in ok -- must admit I have some apprehension as well as loads of excitement at the prospect.
    change does not normally bother me but in D world somehow it does a bit

    i have a choice of the Omnipod , Paradigm Veo , or animas Vibe.
    first choice is the omnipod because of the tubeless

    Ah yes, I know tubeless appeals to many :)

    ... I actually think I find the tubed more discreet / more options with how to wear it... I got a sample and wore it and I didn't like the idea of it being fixed in one place and being so visible... But may be a girl thing ;-)

    ... I notice you don't mention Medtronic as an option, does your hospital not do them? I honestly am in love with mine and it's not even doing anything yet...

    apparently the paradigm veo is a medtronic pump but is about to or has been replaced by the 640

    Correct @himtoo

    I've got the Veo, would LOVE the 640g but I don't get upgraded for AGES! It might not even be as good as my Veo (even though I know it will be) but it just looks so pretty!!!
