The Dexcom Saga for this week

??? My least favorite Dexcom message.

Inserted a new sensor last Thursday. No problems, easy, peasy.

On Friday, nothing but question marks, for 3+ hours. I did a restart, it worked for 30 minutes and then, ???. So I called and they said, “It’s bad.” Got the lot number (I’d saved it!), and scheduled the sending of the replacement. She said I’d have to put in a new one. I really hate doing that. So I gave it one more chance. And it worked! Sort of… Lots of recalibrating each day but… Thank God these things don’t have a voice. Can you imagine? “Recalibrating…” (in a GPS type voice…???)

This morning at 5am, it woke me to say I was 42. Got up, tested, 105. Stayed up, drank coffee and took pictures of the sunrise.

This afternoon it ??? again and I took it off. I kept reaching into my pocket for the receiver to check my bg. No receiver – no sensor – – – Put in a new one this evening.

Meanwhile… On Monday I ordered my 3 month supply of sensors. They arrived today. The replacement sensor is, according to FedEx, on a truck somewhere in our area but, not here yet. Very strange.

Ok – I’m stupid. Just looked at it to see how much longer I had before I can calibrate, and… Yup, forgot to hit the start sensor button. Yup, I’m stupid – or tired – or whatever.

And coming soon. Turns out our favorite “You Can Do This” blogger, aka Kim, graduated from high school with our youngest son.

  1. Dexcom woke you up so you could take those beautiful pictures of the sunrise and share them with us!

    I once had two different FedEx guys show up on the same day.
