how is that demo pod holding up?

See that Pod on the back of her arm?  It's a demo OmniPod insulin delivery system.  Just a blank trial to see how Ellie likes wearing one.  So far it has survived 2 days of:

- sleeping on her side
- showering and scrubbing
- hiding it under a longer sleeve the first day, not wanting people to notice
- talking about how T1D is a part of her and nothing to be ashamed of to:
- showing it off (notice the short sleeves for today at school!)
- bouncing on a trampoline
- running from her brother
- lounging on the couch
- and silliness all around 

Yep.  So far we are loving the Pod.  Were are Pod people.  A Pod of a family.  Girl powered Pod.  Podilicious.  Woo-to-the-Pod.  Awschum Podness.

YAY!!!!!! So happy she's feeling confident -- that's a good looking pod on her a good looking kiddo :)

I also wore a pod demo -- a couple times, actually. It never budged. And, after the first hour or so, I really hardly noticed it.

What a way to start the weekend!

Fist bump...I mean, pod bump!

Q showed her trial pod off to EVERYONE. It was kind of funny. Strangers had NO idea what the heck she was talking about.
