[IP] Thank You - Rough Few Days
To all of you who have provided such wonderful information,
The past week all the information I have received here saved me a lot of
heartache and stress.
I decided to try the Rapids. I thought with the extra tire I have
around my middle ( and I don't have a clue where it came from. I
checked with Discount Tire but they had no record ) the rapid would be a
good switch. It went in easily, which was nice, but only last ed a
couple of days, and there was some stupidity on my part. I left it in
and shouldn't have. I even tried another one, but did take that out
within a day. I was having the same problems as I had over 15 years ago
with the site and allergic reaction to that metal.
Then, on Friday I went back to the Tender. All day I was having a real
hard time getting my bs's below 200. I let it go. I woke up at 2:30am
( too tired to do too much ) with a bs of 268 and thought to myself,
something's up. I thought to myself what would the group suggest. So I
gave myself a shot to cover the high plus two extra units. I woke up at
7:00 am with a 267. ( Mind you I hardly had anything for dinner ). Ok,
something's really up I thought. So I detached from the Cannula and
gave a bolus to see if the Insulin was being delivered and no it
wasn't. So then ahhhh I panicked. After a few seconds I thought about
the group and what they would recommend and I also called D. I had a
leek at the lure lock. It took me about a day to get back down and
Bottom line, thanks to all of you I got through it without a hitch. It
was easy and I knew I had the support out there throughout the world and
that was calming. I appreciate the continued excellent input. I
continually learn and "Ali" let's me keep most of it in my brain so I
can use it in situations such as this past week.
So give yourselves a big hug from me. Thanks!
