Today. Arrive @beach w. accurate, day 12-ish, super-insightful sensor. Awesome beach day yadda yadda.
Depart beach: sensor dangling off (forgot Flexifix tape overlayer; it Bigfoot bad), site hurt, low cartridge, one ton IOB for unconsumed ice cream (it all OK; 179 regardless), and Kadima shoulder.
Arrive home. Clean up selves, gear, car. Joe cartridge/site. Bigfoot sensor. Bubs Phineas and Ferb.
Walk dog, meh green curry, World Cup, washing up, yadda yadda yadda.
Finally, finally receiver buzz lucky double blood drops. Sigh relief. At last un-sandy, fed, site no pain, full cartridge, and gadget friend back on scene, kids’ bedtime. Yay!
Cap, strip, poke, squeeze, Verio IQ: 96. Entered. Blood drop/green check. Strip out strip in poke squeeze II, Verio IQ: 99. Entered.
Dexcom immediately: LOW.
WTF? How Dex want Bigfoot interpret this message:
- Test again
- Your meter is talking out of its ass anyway
- Try entering 90-something again
- Don’t look at me, I’m new
Ok, ok. Cap-strip-poke-squeeze Verio IQ: 91. Hmm. 91 < 96, but…not arrow-worthy. Enter 91 into Dex, even though (obvsly) too soon calibrate again and not straight arrow. Dex reply 68. Balls!
Love Dex & so much faith, feel 85% sure turn out Dexcom right all along. But every resource say trust meter over Dex, especially a new, settling-in sensor.
For now pretend Dex still off, just use meter. Or use Dex. Or use both.
10:10PM Dexcom wails: 43! Verio IQ 91 again.
I accidentally clicked on publish before I was ready. That’s a bad feeling.
