I just have to laugh.
I mean really...y'all know we've had lots of problems with our Dexcom - lots of Error 1's and Error 0's, endless ??? and some just plain ol' "sensor failures." We've never gotten a sensor to last for a full 7 days.
Until this week, that is. And thank goodness for that! With Adam's stomach flu and the aftermath with all of the lows, Dex really came through for us - a FULL WEEK of accurate numbers!
So, naturally, I thought "let's go balls to the wall and restart the darn thing!" to see if we could eek out a few more days out of it. It restarted great and had good numbers and then...
It started flipping out and we got the Trapezoid of Death with the exclamation point and an Error Code that said 270000.
So I call Dexcom and the tech lady says, "Yeah, I've never heard of that Error Code before."
Luckily, Dexcom is overnighting us a new receiver. Unluckily, I called on Friday night, they don't ship on weekends, so we'll have to wait until Tuesday.
All I can say is, "Sayonara, sucker." I'm hoping that this new receiver will give us fewer problems than our last one!
