Barbara,

 You are absolutely correct. If, however, you leave the sensor in for more than
7 days, the transmitter will need to be recharged. When the transmitter is
reconnected after charging, it will wait the 2 hours again to be calibrated. The
sensor lasts for 3 days, the transmitter for 7 days. When the sensor dies after
3 days (and on the 6th day), you can calibrate immediately.

 However, if you leave it in for 7 days, the transmitter will die, and it will
have to be recharged. When you plug it back in, you will have to wait 2 hours to
calibrate.

I sure hope this isn't too confusing, but it's a fact.
