I’ll text my niece tonight! Let’s see if we can get a hammer vs. OmniPod video! EH is getting his OmniPod shipped this week - it was approved via pharmacy benefit and $199 out of pocket for the PDM. So we will have one to smash up soon too.
Thank you! Yes! I almost can’t believe it. Will report back when it actually arrives.
And yes, I’ve got a mallet waiting in the wings for breaking the first pod. It’ll probably be as close as Eric and I will be to finding ourselves united under a chuppah*, so I’ll try to remember to make a video! Festivities under a chuppah always seem so festive!
*We’ve been dating (by mutual choice) for 17 years in January! Although I also thought the OmniPod/UHC thing was impossible at first, so maybe I shouldn’t say anything is unlikely.
Also, @Eric once posted about how to silence a pod alarm, seriously, over on this other thread. And when @EricH was testing out a real pod with just water in it, we forgot to start out by silencing it. So we wound up using a safety pin, which worked better than our paperclips to silence it while it was ON his arm. I will say, that was difficult, and I think that it is better to silence it off the body. But it CAN be done, if you’re testing the thing.
