i've been having a ton of problems with my pump since yesterday.  bg's =
gradually got higher and by the time i came home at midnight or so i was =
almost 500 with moderate ketones.  i had been getting an a-25 alarm, but =
the book said to do a self test, and that came out ok.  i changed the =
site yesterday afternoon, so that wasn't the problem.  i later started =
getting an a-35 alarm, which means the pump is detecting resistance.  i =
took shots all night and checked bg's every 2 hours and drank fluids and =
checked ketones...needless to say mom and i got no sleep. =20

just a word to the mothers out there- i know you all must put up with a =
lot and i am in total awe of you...i don't know what i would have done =
without mom last night

anyway, by afternoon today the ketones were gone and bg's normal, and i =
felt much much better.  i talked to the minimed people, and after =
changing the set again and doing self tests and whatnot, we decided to =
send the pump in.  they're going to send me a loaner tomorrow morning. =20

i'm wondering if this sort of thing happens a lot or if it's a freak =
thing?  how could i have better prevented this?  has anyone ever had to =
use a loaner so theirs could get fixed?  i'm a little doubtful about =
using a loaner pump, but i guess i have no choice.  also, what happens =
if they can't fix it, or they can't find anything wrong with it? =20

thanks for listening and any input.

julie
