Congrats on the pump! I was in your position a little over a month ago when I got my Animas ping in the mail. Did you get your supplies with it too? If so, look into getting some saline and using it in your pump instead of insulin while you wait for your appointment. My doctor reccomended it and it was a great idea. I got to play around with giving a bolus, and got use to the idea of having it connected to me all the time(which you get use to faster than you may think). I also got a sense of what legnth of tubing I prefered. It helped me to feel comfortable with the infusion sets and also programing basal settings. I got to do all of that without fear of hurting myself with insulin. You should definately do that if possible, its very helpful.
