Yesterday evening, I stepped on a Silhoette (infusion set) needle. It snapped off- into the skin. Fortuantly, it was longways (not a straight up/down impalement). Got some tweezers + pulled that sucker out. Smothered sore spot in triple antibiotic ointment, put a bandage on it.
And watched it.
This morning, it started to throb. Minimal swelling, but painful. I'm not stupid, I know certain things you just do not fool around with. I've excellent circulation, but by virtue of being D that doesn't count for much. If the pain doesn't decrease in the next couple of days, I'll get it checked out. This makes the first time a needle has actually broken off into the skin=usually it just bounces off, once it hits the "OWWWW" trigger. I hope nothings still in there.
At lunchtime today, I discovered I was out of strips, and by quitting time, my pump resevoir had 2.5 units left. Which was promptly used up to treat the 287(when I got home and checked).
The site also looks pretty horrible, so it'll be a full change-out tonight.
I just want to sleep. (not cook, not clean, not take care of D stuff)
