We’re back home after a week in Kansas & Arkansas. I know, not your usual vacation spots but with our two sons living there, that’s where we went.
It was my first time flying with the ping and a bag full of ping supplies.
I dinged at the walk through and then said, “I’m wearing an insulin pump.” The TSA agent fairly shouted, “Insulin pump over here. We need a female agent.” I felt like I was in the grocery line and someone was yelling for a price check. Oh well, it wasn’t crowded. Lady TSA came over and was extremely polite and the “wanding” was done. On the way home at KCI (Kansas City), I let the guy know before I walked through. He quietly said, “No problem. Walk on through.” I dinged and he said, “Insulin pumps are not usually a problem. Take off your watch and try again.” Watch went in the tub and I walked through, dingless.
Eating out, every day, was a new experience in numbers. I forgot my “carb book” and we bought a new one. Meanwhile, lost my reading glasses (just the cheap kind) and couldn’t read the book. Bought new reading glasses so I could read the numbers but still blew it a few times. (Found the reading glasses in our son’s car 4 days later.)
We walked more – and I’m sure that helped a lot.
HUGEST number occurred after my Denny’s breakfast with two pancakes and several hours sitting in the car. They were yummy. I did bolus but… not enough I guess. I survived and the pancakes were delicious.
We arrived home to much colder weather and snow!! as we drove home from the airport. Spring will get here, eventually…
