Persistence is the key to life and now is the time to persevere.
This is just a bit of what 2 weeks of prepping for an Artificial Pancreas clinical trial looks like (well looked like):
I’ve been meaning to post this for weeks.
The BGs are truly rubbish, but do you see the profile of the face too?
Or am I crazy?
Or just crazier?
Clockwise from top left: Imagine my surprise when I received a thank you gift from Excedrin in the mail! I was a little confused about the part that thanks me for my “patience”. Was there an Excedrine shortage or something? Maybe it’s thanks for being patient during a migraine for the Excedrin to kick-in (like I have any other choice)? Any way you look at it, it’s nice to get free stuff. If any diabetes device or pharmaceutical companies are listening, I like free, surprise, thank you gifts.
I’ve had 2 days and 3 nights of too many low bgs. Last night I had the actual LOW reading on my Dexcom. It was scary, it was there for a really long time, and even when I started to come up, it was snail-pace slow. I joked yesterday that Glucolift tablets are becoming a food group in my world. The real joke is… I’m not joking.
Happy Blue Friday! New blue shirt, blue Dexcom and sort-of bluish glasses.
What do you think that last photo is from? Awful finger prick? A girl who’s using a very blunt lancet? Nope, got my finger tip caught between and anvil and a rubber mallet the other night. It really does look like a D injury though doesn’t it? Gotcha!
Just some images that explain this week (and happy Friday).
From top left: NEW D toys matched up for the first time since my robot self was upgraded in December. I love that they matched at an awesome number (yes, I have doggie sheets).
My Dec G4 sensor was more OFF than stuck ON me by Tuesday. I was waiting it out since I still hadn’t received new sensors and was growing concerned. I’d only received 4 sensors with my initial shipment (unlike my 7+ where I got 3 boxes from the beginning).
Look what arrived! Yep, a phone call and less than 48 hours and *presto*! Sensors Ahoy!
It’s Friday which means Blue Friday and me taking off pics of myself at my desk. Since it is FREEZING in my office, I will be wearing this cozy scarf all day and possibly gloves and my hat with ear flaps.
