I'll tell my short story


I have slept, and am feeling rested! It is hard on my first day off work - I don't want to waste my day sleeping, but I also need to recover from my two night shifts! I usually do laundry, catch up on reading all the blogs I follow, practice cello....laze around the house. Not a bad idea, gets all the house stuff done for 8 days!

So I'll tell you about the transmitter. Still kicking - who really knows how long it will last with low battery. I was woken again at noon by the low transmitter alarm, I am told this will happen daily!

I called US minimed helpline when I noticed the error - and was not able to get any help as I was outside the warranty period. They referred me to speak to the Canadian customer support # (I now have this number written down!!). I spoke with a nice rep there who went through my options.

1. wait it out, buy into the new mini-sensor system in a few months
2. buy new transmitter
3. Transmitter Purchase program....but a box of 10 sensors for a discounted rate of $425 and get a free transmitter.

Well I knew option 3 was the only viable option! I was thinking about the OT at work I would need to pay for this .... sigh....

BUT then I mentioned the two boxes of sensors I just bought 3 weeks ago - and said if I got 10 more then would expire before I could use them!!

WELL this changed the whole situation! Seesing that I had recently bought new sensors - they waved the $425 and I got the transmitter for free! Brand new with a new warrenty! Thank goodness I mentioned those sensors I bought :) FUEF!

My new sidekick was supossed to arrived later today BUT big storm today......I am home, sitting by the fire. Nice place to be!
