Shut up Eileen!

Dear Eileen,

I love you. I really, really do... but you are kind of pissing me off today. Both my babies are napping and all I want to do is sit on my nice cushy bum, and catch up on some blogs.

You know, while eating my bon-bons and watching my stories.

But for some hostile reason, you think it's okay to beep "LOW" every 10 - 15 minutes, making me get up, run upstairs and hit the "OK" button.

If Elise really WAS low, I'd be ever-so-thankful. But she's hovering right around 100; dipping below every other update or so, which in turn, sets you off. Showing me that she's 99 with a flat arrow really doesn't do much for me. Then, she hops over the 100 mark, only to dive back to 96 (again, with the flat arrow), causing you to grumble (vibrate) and shriek (beep) at me some more.

So Eileen... please to shut up. Unless you have some real news, just sit quietly on Elise's shelf like a good little CGM.


Elise's pseudo-pancreas

P.S. I guess I should offer my begrudging thanks for alerting me to Elise's nasty low during her nap yesterday. I suppose I can forgive this little transgression today.

P.P.S. You know I really do love you right? Sorry I'm such a cranky pants.


  1. LOL! Poor Eileen, poor you...hope you get a little you time soon and Eileen only alerts when truly necessary!

  2. Big hugs, Joanne! I remember the early days, just after bringing Leo home from the hospital. I don't miss them at all! And we didn't have D to deal with back then! Hang in there! You're doing a great job and things will get easier in time!

  3. Our Dex and your Eileen should meet up and swap stories...they have a lot in common!!!

  4. What's up Cranky Pants?!?!?
    You always make me laugh!

  5. Come on Eileen! Give the mama of 2 a break!

  6. Yes eileen can be a bit of a problem at times cant they ? that stinks .
