How to Bolus
The other night I went out to dinner with Girl Genius, Boy Genius and Mom Genius after the ballet recital. After I look at the menu (and decide that I’ll be getting a salad and ice cream) I test and bolus for my BG. We’re in the middle of a heat wave here, so I was in a sundress and therefore the pump was hidden. This new handy meter-remote came in handy. As I was bolusing, Mom Genius asked what I programming. I explained how it saves everything, but I’m actually bolusing since my pump is under my dress. And then we hear “Well that’s okay. You can lift up your dress to bolus.” Mom Genius and I both look down at Girl Genius wondering if she really just said that, and so I said “It isn’t appropriate for adults to lift up their dresses, especially in restaurants.” And then we went back to discussing ice cream. Even though every time I think back on it, I 1. laugh and 2. love her innocence.
