SUPERFRESH

The remainder of this cartridge was Sprite.

The remainder of this cartridge was Sprite.

High, high, high half day, whole day, another day too; three site changes: bubbles/kinks, and then…

The sensor/transmitter had torn away from its home adhesive. I tried to peek under there to see if the wire was still in place, but even if it were, a corset didn't seem worthwhile since it was Day 9

The sensor/transmitter had torn away from its home adhesive. I tried to peek under there to see if the wire was still in place; even if it were, rigging some kind of corset didn’t seem worthwhile since it was Day 9. The wrinkly, torn stuff is not human flesh. Gross! It is Flexifix.

Dex sensor day 9 so much ??? and crossed off martini glass & uncalled for 394 (= 290) etc., then see sensor has torn away from body through provided adhesive + IV prep cement + Opsite Flexifix overlay.

2.5 is where I think it is, right?

And so 2.5u correction via syringe (still a BFD), hover around 200, higher, higher then 4th site change and then.

Ahh. Everything better. New Dex sensor in place too. All tapes fresh, clean, smooth. In bed, 129. 120. Ahh. Was thinking nothing is ever going to be okay again but is okay.

Superfresh!

Superfresh! 1) charged-up Dexcom, 2) freshly applied sensor, 3) fully loaded pump, 4) around back: brand new infusion site

    Gwen and I agree. Best blog on the web. And when you’re happy, we’re happy too.

  3. It’s funny (sad) how quickly one feels like their number will never come down again no matter what has been tried. Then, suddenly, insulin starts to work again and all is right in the world. I’m up for sensor and pod change tomorrow!

    P.S. Slept for 10 hours last night with the help of Advil PM and feel like a new person today.
