Re: [IPk] I'm connected!

Hi Pat

You've got cats...I've got kids!  Mine have been asking me if they can
disconnect me.  My eldest, Fiona aged 9 even asked me to wake her on Friday
morning before I had a shower so that she could do it for me.  I didn't and
as a result had to suffer her sulking!  Seriously though, this has become so
much easier since I realised that I had to insert the infusion set at a
particular angle and that the main trick is not to squeeze the thing
together too hard.

I realised last night that I could really have done with being hooked up for
real.  I was at a party (no alcohol) and my BS were running at around 15.  I
really wanted something to eat so I decided that I would have a bolus of
Hypurin in my Pen.  However by 11.30, some 2 hours with still no great
affect on my BS's I gave up and had my Isophane.  Consequently on waking
this morning I found that I was down to 2.1 and have since not been below 9
all day.  Roll on tomorrow when the real fun starts.

Best wishes
(iddm 25+ & owner of 2 sulking kids!)
