And we’re back to the wired life. Well, the mini vacation was needed, that’s for sure. Even though it was short, I’m actually pretty happy to only have to stick myself once every three days rather than five times a day.
She’s still pink… And has been giving me attitude. Apparently factory default settings really are nothing. (I really don’t remember needing to set a fixed prime amount. Oh? Now you just want to stop working? Cool.)
The control was unreal though. I thought for sure I’d ruin my average in three days.
Anyway, so now I’m dealing with an awkward bruise from that gusher I had on NYE. My bruise has taken the shape of two nearly intersecting lines. Apparently the capillaries are upset at me. But, naturally, I start looking up “infections from infusion sets” and “blood poisoning.” (Which, if you Google along with anything diabetes related, you get a bunch of stuff about Bret Michaels.) I have neither deathly condition, but still scheduled an appointment. Not sure if ill go or not. It’s been a busy half week at work.

Yay! Glad you got your pump!
I’ve never had any issues with infections or anything, but my vote is that you should go. You just know that the ONE time you skip an appointment that’ll be the time you really should have gone… Just sayin’…
Normally, I’d agree with that, but I have zero tell-tale signs of an infection. And I had a nurse friend take a look at it during dance class yesterday. Hilariously awkward, but I’m pretty sure I’m fine.
I’ve been through a few “replacement pumps” in 2012. Yeah, reprogramming them is a pain. That, honestly, is what got me started with Carelink, so I could have a backup of all my old settings when it was time to program the new one. Now only if I could upload them to the new pump instead of doing it manually…
My CDE sent me the printout we did three weeks ago during my appointment. But even that was inaccurate.
