[IP] site failure in a youngun.

Sometimes, when you change your pump site right before bed, or sometime
when you can't look often for bubbles, my sugars sky-rocket. It is
because even though you think there are no bubbles in the syringe, small
amounts of air can come in from the tubing connection, and from the seal
in the plunger.

This is one of the reasons it is better to change your pump around lunch,
or in the morning, so you will have time to check it.

Lauren change your site in the morning, then you have all day for it to
misbehave and you'll know about it. Getting sick from high BG's is a no fun
thing. Pumping has its warts but its better than MDI anyday. spot
