Happy Diabetes Blog Week Day Two!




It’s a Poem About The Ping Breaking Last Night

I can’t believe his pump broke

the battery was hot.

Ping’s help desk said to disconnect

The doctor said what what


Inject twelve units Lantus

and we’ll get this party started.

Aw, you’ll remember how to dose;

let’s see when last we charted


So zero point five per fifty

if he tips over one hundred

but not until one-fifty’s breached

and numbernumber hmm-blim blumberd


For carbs let’s use one to fifteen

while he’s at school, at least.

And don’t forget it’s not precise

no matter what he eats


Round up (not down) and once (not twice);

check Dex, but not too much.

We’re really on a roll

I think I have the magic touch.

    This just stinks about the heat
    Thank goodness for the Lantus cheat.
    The thought of using MDI
    Would make me want to weep and cry.
    Time for replacement, that’s a sin.
    But your poem surely is a WIN.

        And I don’t know how you type Bigfoot-language so well. I guess we all have our quirky talents.

    I wanted to write a poem in response, but nothing really rhymes with BLERGH.

    This is so simultaneously lovely and awful.

    It’s like Dr. Seuss and Dr. Dre collaborated on this. It’ll got platinum for sure.
    And tell me he will get a new pump ASAP. Is there a black tech cloud over your house???

    I am sorry about your ping breaking 😦 I had my pump break on me a number of years ago. It is a nasty shock going from the pump to MDI. Luckily, PWDs are tough like steel!

    I was going to write a comment, but Scott E’s comment poem was too good. Just read his again:-)
