I want this shirt
I was randomly searching Cafe Press tonight, when I came across this shirt. I immediately thought of Joanne...except we'd have to cross out the "sugar" and replace it with "breakfast!"
I haven't updated for awhile, mostly because I was busy throwing a baby shower for my sister (and it was mighty fun, if I do say so myself!) and because we haven't had much going on diabetes-wise the last few days.
I'm sure I just opened up a whole can o' worms with that declaration. Watch me be up all night with low blood sugars tonight!
Pumping is awesome...although I wish I could get his site to stay on for more than 2 days. It will stay on longer if I use SkinTac, but he got a rash from it when I used it, so I guess I'll just stay with the IV 3000, even though it doesn't work as well.
Random question...does anyone know what the minimum fill for insulin is in the cartridge for the Ping? I'm too lazy to go find our manual to look it up. :) We are wasting a ton of insulin, it seems, especially since the sites are only lasting 2 days. I need to see how low I can fill it, since his TDD isn't that much.

This is hilarious and I think I could get away with wearing it for at least one more year as Ethan isn't quite reading, yet!ReplyDelete
LOVE the shirt you funny girl.ReplyDelete
Glad pumping is going well. I am unsure of the minimum fill. I do know I tried to reload a cartridge with less than 10 units the other day and was unable to do so. I would think it could handle 20 units though. Have you tried calling your rep? Maybe Wendy (Candy Hearts)knows?
Oh man... that shirt is AWESOME!!! Thanks for the laugh this morning!ReplyDelete
Love the shirt too and also thought of Joanne and her breakfast comment! :-)ReplyDelete
Can't you just re-use the same cartridge for the next site change? We do that with the Minimed Paradigm. We just take it out, change the tubing.. Rewind, put back same cartridge, prime, etc.ReplyDelete
That shirt is hilarious!!!ReplyDelete
I am with Reyna..you can't really go below 10. Our rep told us to shoot for btwn 25-30. Addison uses quite a small amount as well. There is always some left over but not a whole lot if we stay close to 30.ReplyDelete
I want that shirt too!! Hilarious! Maybe we should all get one and post a picture of ourselves wearing it!!ReplyDelete
Okay Stephanie, you re-write the shirt for Joanne and I will go halfsies with you to buy it for her ;)!ReplyDelete
