Nope, this isn’t Dragnet. (I know… most of you are too young to sing along…)
Bringing lunch to work is working!
It would even be better if I remembered to bolus! Today, turkey sandwich w/ some lettuce, some potato chips, some carrot sticks. BG at lunch time – 98, whoopie! Ate with friends (who are also now doing the “bag” lunch thing), it was nice. Until the Dexcom alerted a DOUBLE ARROW RISE. Huh? Then I was at 206 and my brain (yes, I do have one, it just doesn’t kick in sometimes) said, “Hey dope, did you actually bolus? Or were you so busy doing a happy dance with a 98 before lunch that you forgot…???”
Checked the history button and yup, I forgot to bolus. Dum De Dum Dum…
Bolused just the lunch and by the time I left I was 95. Not bad. By the time I got home (it’s a 5 minute commute) Dexcom is blaring and I’m 59. Hmmm, didn’t feel that coming. But, when opportunity knocks, I take advantage. We have Girl Scout cookies! We have Samoas and Thin Mints. I had a couple of Thin Mints and all was good!
Dinner with my former CDE/Pump Trainer - awesome. I’ll write about it later. But I wish everyone could work with this gal. She’s calm and knowledgeable, and just a nice person to work with if you have diabetes. I think she’s probably a nice person to know even if you don’t have diabetes.
And for fun… The reno continues and here’s a photo of me arriving home. Notice the FedEx package. It’s the Dexcom replacement sensor from last week. I have them delivered to the office so they don’t sit out in the cold.
It’s supposed to snow tomorrow!
