Brain. No. Work.

April 5, 2013

I tried to write a nice sounding post, but the events of which I’m writing about have made me so tired that I sound like a robot.  So here we go.

  • Defective Tubing

    Defective Tubing

    Yesterday was a pump site change day. 

  • Around 2:00 I felt a little thirsty and was 414.
  • I changed it again and bolused.
  • I left to pick up the kids, but accidentally left my meter at home.
  • We stopped for dinner because there was so much traffic.  I ate because I felt better.
  • When we finally got home I was 397.
  • When I was 457 I took a shot, tested ketones (moderate) and changed everything again.
  • When I was 385 at 11:45, I bolused again, but pleased it was at least on it’s way down.
  • Before bed I was 383, and I was about to change things again when I got dripped on from my pump.
  • After further investigation, I realized there was a crack in the tubing.
  •  I called Animas (because clearly 1AM is the time to do this) and they’re sending me new sites.
  • Today I woke up at 167 and I need a coffee IV.

    No fair! No fair! Crack in the tubing?! The boing-y stretchy tubing?

    I’m glad you’re feeling better. Enjoy your coffee.

    Yikes! What an awful feeling. I hope today is much better.

    Cracked tubing?? Oh that is annoying!!!! I mean, know things go wrong, insulin goes bad, cannulas kink., but insulin leaking out a crack in the tubing? We should NOT have to worry about that too!!
