Damn! Resume!

I’m totally loving my T:slim. Love the screen. Love the info. Not a big fan of the refill process but – I’m getting better. Except for RESUME. When doing a cartridge change on the T:slim, you have to stop the insulin delivery. Makes sense, right? But – when you’re done, you have to go hit RESUME or – it doesn’t RESUME.IMG_2263 (640x425)I hit it the first time I changed it all out and felt like I was soooooooooo smart. Since then, I’ve probably forgotten it 50% of the times. So one month times half. What a pain. But – I have faith that I’ll get there and it’s nice that the T:slim screams at you to remind you after some time.

I’m still using my phone as a receiver/sharer as I’ve got leftover supplies and so – haven’t had to process any Dexcom stuff through Medicare. But – that said, I like having the Dexcom number on the pump. I don’t have to punch in a password, I just have to hit the on button on the pump – not so bad. And not so hard at 3am.

Meanwhile, this happened this week. Mowing the yard (it’s not a lawn, it’s a yard) and Dexcom needed its calibration so I came in to calibrate and – the blood went everywhere. It’s not the first time. I’m guessing it won’t be the last time. Just glad I was standing in the kitchen! And yes, that’s one of the well loved and well worn Diabetes UnConference shirts.

Spring has finally sprung up here in NH and it’s just loverly!

  1. Great post ! Thanks for sharing. I think soon I’ll have to make a trip to visit you & Rocky … and hopefully we won’t spray out blood everywhere when we do a calibration (I’m hoping to get a sensor next week from a guy here in my town that … sigh … due to his diabetes and stress of it .. is on the government system that pays for ALL his CGM, insulin, you name it supplies … plus rent … yadda yadda yadda. This is the only thing I dislike Canada about … is those people who get these “gifts” from our government, who work under the table … so they get these “benefits”. While we working stiffs … nope. At least hospital care , doctors, are covered under our taxes we pay out. And this is your brief bit about the medical system in Canada. Off my soap box I go … meow

  2. I forget all the time to resume so ur not alone, although I haven’t gotten blood on my unconference shirt but I do get my red blood cells on a much loved “ life is good” shirt so I feel ur pain!!!

    But I’ve decided to leave the mowing to hubby to prevent the whole situation!! Haha!

    One thing I do all the Tim is I forget to reattach the tubing to the site sftetvgrtting dressed after my shower. I’ll discover it an hour or more later when I notice I’m high!! I’ve even boluse and it goes into my pants cuz I’m not hooked up!!!

    I’m not sure how to remedy the situation& remind myself to plug back in!! I’ve done itcway to many times to count!! Can I say “airhead”!! Other than my idiotic moves, I love my t slim!!
