To be on the safe side, I pulled out the instructions and double checked that I did know what I thought I knew and got out my goodies:
|In all it's glory!|
|Here is the 7 day old sensor/transmitter, prior to removal.|
Step two: Insert new sensor. Piece of cake! The needle isn't a 10 g, maybe more like 18 g. For the record though, it is still HUGE!
|See the wickedly huge needle in there?|
Done, done, and done! The best part came when I had to put in two glucose readings after 2 hours to calibrate it. 101 on the index finger and 96 on the middle.
On a completely unrelated note, I have been asked to be a guest speaker for the Medical Careers Exploration class offered at Front Range Community College in October to talk about diabetes and tell my story. Is that way cool or what?
