RE: [IP] changing lancets!

I test 12 time a day. When the fingers get sore I switch to the thumbs for a
week or two and then back to rotating the fingers. There are times that I
can wash with hot water and just press the finger and blood will come from
the last puncture.

Jan's email brings up questins for me.
  How many times do each of you test?
  I can not imagine testing as much as my son does that we could go near
that long without changing lancets

I lost my meter kit at an amusement park last week. It was my favorite 
meter, too - the Aviva. So I called Roche and they sent me a new kit. 
Problem is, it meant I had to use a fresh lancet, since my poker was lost 
along with my kit. So now I've been forced to change lancets off-schedule. 
What's the penalty for that? What do I need to do to repent? I'd just 
changed in March and it wasn't time yet!
