I had my first “owie” inserting of the inset this morning. Serves me right I guess for being cocky and thinking I was really getting the hang of this. Shot the thing in and – it hurt. But no blood showing and actually it wasn’t hurting right at the site, more just an inch or so over. So I let it be, fixed breakfast and did the bolus thing. OW! And gee, did that hurt!
Pulled it out. It wasn’t bent. There was no blood.
And then Dopey (AKA – me…) panicked. How do I do this? – I just filled the reservoir! I know, duh. Called Animas, and Stella with the lovely southern accent, gently talked me through reconnecting with a new inset. I know, — it’s easy —- but at that point the brain (umm, mine) was not getting it. She said I probably got too close to some muscle and so, that’s why it hurt (and it really hurt!).
Meanwhile – my lunch today with the friends who have been so helpful for the past five years, was wonderful. I ordered pizza! I did the combo thing with the Ping and – yay! it worked. I wasn’t perfect but by dinner time was at 120.
