Folly consider but consider anyway: possible outfoxed Dexcom. Simultaneous vague memory scrape around brain maybe tried outfox before & crime not pay.
Yesterday sensor = one week old. Execute standard outfox. i. e. STOP SENSOR/START NEW SENSOR upon REPLACE SENSOR SOON screen appear.
Today = sensor 8 days old real life/1 day old Dexcom brains. Child mention (as usual Day 8/9) sensor hurts. Remove. Harpoon new one. Execute unorthodox outfox: no stop sensor/start new sensor. Act casual. Carry on as if new sensor is same one as “1 day old”(8-days-old) one.
Now Bigfoot tangled web lies. Sort out truth: thing in kid’s abdomen is new–wrapper not hit wastepaper basket yet. Dexcom thinks it’s 1 day old. Meanwhile, “real” 1 day old one actually 8 days old & in aforementioned wastepaper basket.
Reality check. New/fake 1 day old sensor not spot-on; red hot buzz alert LOW UNDER 55 (“45”) while Verio IQ report 65. But still. Better than nothing.
Why not skip over wetting phase, when possible? Just yesterday paid it forward w. charade of “wetting” super-saturated 7-day-old sensor.
Maybe dry/new sensor not accurate these two shoulda-been-wetting-phase hours, but…worst case scenario = two hours inaccurate data instead of two hours data blackout.
