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.
