Happy 3rd Pumpaversary!

Today is Arnold's 3rd birthday!  It was on this day 3 years ago that he and I were joined at the hip (literally) and became best pals. 

He doesn't look quite this shiny and new anymore. 
Being on the pump has allowed me so much freedom, even though I'm tethered to a machine 24/7.  I can coordinate my insulin based on my life, not the other way around.  And this birthday is a little sad because this is probably the last one we'll share together (my warranty runs up next year, and there's this strange crack in the screen that worries me).  I don't know what I'll do with Arnold next year, but I have a feeling I'll keep him for a little while.  He's like my first car, which I had for 9 years before I bought a new one.  I'm just a sentimental ole sap, so I'll probably keep him and put him by my bedside table.  He's been a great companion and friend. 

Happy Birthday, Arnold.  Let's go eat some cake! 

Arnold:  "BOOP-BEEP-BOOP!" 


  1. But will you still keep him by the bedside table when Medtronic offers a $250 trade-in?


    Congrats on a 3-year birthday of good health management!

  2. Yay! :) Happy b-day Arnold. :)

  3. I agree with Nikki: When my 508 was done pumping me up, I traded that thing in like a cash for clunker! PS: I love Arnold's response to you, it's so...what's the word?....pumpalicious!

  4. Is Constance going to give Arnold a present? :)

  5. Happy Pumpaversary! Very cool stuff and that Crack adds character!
