Have you heard the big news? Omnipod has started transitioning existing customers to the new pod.
I mean, apparently. I have heard such stirrings in the DOC, but like the mythical Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot, I haven't seen it with mine own eyes.
I have made several calls to everyone I can think of, trying to find out when Elise's turn is. You see, we are running out of pods, and I'll be damned if I'm going to order another shipment of the old ones.
I've been told that our turn will come when it's time for our next automatic reorder. And that's where we fall through the cracks. For some reason, the company we order from can't seem to get us on auto-ship. No biggie... before now, I'd just make a note on my calendar and order when our time came.
We had enough pods to skip an order, so I did just that. Worried that we'd be forgotten, I put calls in to OP, and our supplier; only to get the run-around that is leaving me exhausted.
According to our supplier, they will not ship out the new pods until OP has sent us an email and the new PDM with instructions for training. And according to OP, they won't send the PDM until we get our new shipment of pods from the supplier. Calls back and forth to each company, gave me no resolution, and although I love making numerous phone calls a day in between the laundry, cleaning, butt wiping, meal preparing, diaper changing, nursing, baby food making, bathing, dressing, refereeing, bill paying crap (not to mention diabetes related care); it was getting ridiculous.
It was a very frustrating case of "Chicken or the Egg". And last week, finally, I had enough.
I called our supplier and told them that I would not be hanging up until someone there would send me a shipment of the new pods, thankyouverymuch.
After pleading my case, finally I was rewarded with a yes! YES!
Of course our prescription had expired, and they needed new paperwork from our insurance... but all that has now been taken care of and apparently the pods are in the mail.
But... like everything on this journey to the new pods, I'll believe it when I see it.
