Try not to laugh. On Friday, at my first pre-pump appointment, I inserted the Inset for the pump, a Ping. The CDE told me to leave it in for the three days so I can see if I might have any skin issues. On Friday evening, I decided to tape the end of the tubing to the pump just to see how it feels, especially at night – sleeping. It’s been interesting. Sleeping was fine, hooked it onto some pj’s and slept fine. Next night I hooked it onto the underwear and that wasn’t as comfortable.
Tomorrow morning I will remove it. She suggested doing that while in the shower. I’m pretty good at ripping off a band-aid. I’m guessing this won’t be the same…
On Wednesday I have another appointment. This is a group class on “Advanced Carbohydrate Counting.” M is going with me as he is the chief cook and bottle washer here at our home.
On Friday we also discussed glucagon and ketones. In the past 4 years since my diagnosis, those topics have never been mentioned. Living in the boonies, I worry what would happen if I keeled over from a low. We do have an ambulance company in town and they do a great job.
An advantage of living in the boonies – no trick or treaters! And so, no big bowl of leftover candy to tempt me. Thank goodness!
