Its Never as Simple as it looks
HERE HE IS! My brand new Pumpernickel, the pump monkey.. Got it from Fifty-50 a few days ago, along with a medical ID bracelet and EMLA type numbing spray. He's so cute, his tubing can come out of his mini-Cozmo, and its very realistic. Like me, his infusion set never stays in..
(you gotta tape it on)
And in the working world,I received an email from Austria recently. Yeah, thats right, Austria. I don't know anyone in Austria, but it was sent through Ebay- so I figured it wasn't spam.Subject title was in German. Good thing the email wasn't in German. (I don't know German!)
Buyer wanted to know why their item (that they sent specific instructions to be sent to a friend of theirs in CA) wasn't there (in Austria) yet. So I told them, and that hopefully cleared up the miscommunication, haven't recieved any neg. feedback or death threats..
Ebay is awesome this time of year. You can sell things used, (good condition, of course) for more then you payed for it originally. Triple the amount, then it usually sells for. One month ago, a certain computer cd game was barely clearing $5- mine sold for $30 today. Good thing too, because I'm spending as much as I'm making. (buying people gifts!)
I'm on chapter 2, in BGAT. Talk about confusing. Its about the insulin overlapping action.
Plugged in all my basals, boluses, (and times) and it gives a nice little graph showing WHEN you're most likely to be high, or low from the insulin surges. (Interlapping basal- bolus) It bears no corrolation to the real world, in which I'm most likely to be low: midmorning, midafternoon.
Their graph says I should be low early evening, and high after lunch...
This is next week's homework.
And this, is my insulin plot graph. (that I've yet to truly figure out)
This week, on Tuesday, I'm due to go in for my EMG. (local hospital) I'm going to tell them I don't want to know the results till after Christmas. I'll also return my meter( Lifescan Study), to have that downloaded. Thank goodness that study, at least, is done! Because its nearing the end of the year, its time to get all 7 prescriptions refilled, and another box of syringes. (for Symlin) I think every year the insurance companies make it their resolution to raise copays, but especially RX's. Mine are bad- but I'm sure they'll get worse!
