I'm feeling sort of ranty. And a little bit stabby. And like playing hide and seek with my kids... Me as the hider, tucked away somewhere they can't find me with a bottle of wine. And some chocolate.
It's hot here people and cabin fever is setting in. Did you know it's going to be 108 next Monday?
Hence the stabby.
Anyway... something making me particularly crazy lately is diabetes for many reasons. So here is my list of D-things making my butt itch today:
1. Why the freaking hell does our supply company cover up the expiration dates on Elise's test strips with their prescription label? Don't they know I have this weird need to organize our supply cupboard by date? The only way I can figure out the date is to RIP OPEN EACH AND EVERY BOX. Kill Me. Kill me now.
2. Elise's pump settings are broken. And I don't know how to fix them. Everything I do makes it worse. We did some basal testing yesterday and it showed me her basals are too high. We tried to test some more today, but multiple corrections haven't gotten her back into range to start the testing. It's almost dinner time and the poor girl still hasn't eaten lunch.
3. Our last two dex sensors have been waaaaaaay off. Like, 100 points at times off. A call into dex had the guy lecturing me that the dex is not FDA approved for the arm... blah, blah, blah. Never mind the fact that it's the ONLY place we put her sensors and has been for the last three years. And just now the problem arises...
4. Elise just came and showed me this.
So instead of finishing my rant, I'm off to change her pod. After which, all my other rants will have disappeared into the vast recesses of my brain; never to be remembered again.
So I'm dropping the mic and walking off the stage.
