[IP] Latest Dexcom STS Sensor Life: 17 DAYS!

<<<This time, starting June 5, I decided to run the Sensor all the way until 
it died. I got SEVENTEEN DAYS !!! >>>

Is that really safe?  A very large part of the reason to change more 
frequently is to prevent infection.  I can make my pump sites last over 10 
days (I've tried it once or twice just to see), but I don't do it because 
it's not safe.  Pumping is a little worse because of the constant infusion, 
but the sensor is still causing a deep wound/open access for infection.
