Anyway, before I have to start doing some relaxation breathing lessons on this infusion set issue with Canada - one of the reasons for trying the arm site is seeing an Omnipod user last week at an Insulin Pump meeting in Cornwall - proudly showing off his pod on his arm. Well, I have a mini-me version on my arm - with the pump itself nestled you know where. So there!! Though I'm really keen to see what an Omnipod is all about - especially with it being smaller now - though not sure when Canadians will see the new version due to Health Canada having to put their stamp of approval on it - tap, tap, tap.
Actually having the pump nestled there - when the pump vibrates for an alarm - like it did earlier this AM - made me become yet another "not a virgin" in a new area - aka
ALARM AUTO-OFF NO DELIVERY
You can read more about this - and my semi-excitement over it (little things get me excited as you can see <lol>) and how not jumping to the gun - I realised that the alarm that followed that one - is a good thing with the Animas 2020 pump (not all of my blogging about the Animas pumps is bad like my previous ones).

Meanwhile - I leave you with this picture of ' my girls ' (I'm not shy am I - but really I am) - I feel like I'm a character from Star Trek <lol>.
UPDATE on infusion sets available to Canada - the website for Canadians SHOWS the longer tubing length BUT no pricing which is shown at the USA site. Why I have a list from Animas Canada that does not show all the same info as their website (at least the list shows the price - but more expensive for Canadians is another story) - that is just too trange. I am only finding out now - that I can actually order the longer tubing lengths. When I queried Animas Canada before on certain products I was looking into - they didn't offer anything else than what I saw on the Order form I am given each time I order up supplies (dated Dec 1/07).
I've printed up the list for my own reference (along with the date) - and going to inquire into this when I have to order up more infusion sets (I have enough for 2 months due to being on pump holiday) - with the longer tubing in order to wear set on my arm. Hopefully they can give me a truthful answer as to why pricing is higher in Canada as well.
