I actually remembered not to smile (breaks the seal on the face mask and it fills with water otherwise. My eyes and nose were drowning in a few of the pics).
My pump and I did well snorkeling although I was quite cold (wetsuit shirt was nice, wetsuit pants would have been nice as well).
I travel with a back-up pump (which was back at the hotel).
I had 2 syringes and a vial of insulin with me on the boat.
I had lots of reasons for choosing my pump. One of the main ones is so I can do stuff like this. I don’t like leaving my pump behind, in this case, with strangers on a boat. My pump is a thrill seeker. He insisted on snorkeling. Who was I to say no?
Snorkeling (well swimming) drops my bg like nobody’s business (OK it’s none of your business but I stayed in the 130-80 range the whole time). Temporary basal rates are effing awesome.
Under bolusing (majorly) for lunch was unnecessary. Lesson learned when I returned from second round of snorkeling.
Having snorkeling dreams for days (well nights) after snorkeling is most excellent.
My Dexcom did well in the Pacific ocean as well and picked up my bg as I approached the boat. Not bad G4, not bad at all.
I believe in tons of Ziplock baggies.
Diabetes may slow me down a bit every once in a while. It does NOT stop me.
I may not be Aquaman but I may respond to Aqua-Robot-Lady.
This looks like so much fun! I haven’t been snorkeling in years — it was well before my pumping days. Water stuff kinda freaks me out since I put my life in the hands of a little black box with a AA battery. Sadly.
Wow, can I say that I’m super-duper jealous, Aqua-Robot-Lady? Looks like a lot of fun. I totally get the diving (pardon the pun) BGs from swimming. Glad you were able to do this!
LOVE IT!!! so glad you got this vacay, girl!! (and your pump too – he probably needed it too)
This is SO AWESOME!! Looks (and sounds) like you had a blast!
Excellent! I did the same when I snorkeled in Alaska. Your pump can go most anywhere!
