Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!

In the rush of the whole season, I forgot to do a site change before the holidays! I had to leave work yesterday on my lunch break to make sure I had enough juice for the Christmas day feasts! (plural, as my family is having a dinner and then there will be a second at work tonight....and they expect me to stay awake during my night shift!!!!)

I am still using the Minimed Sure-T (metal set). Yesterday I decided to use my lower right stomach area...I have never put a metal set in that area. I was in a hurry, and did not think through my process well enough. I put the set in a lean area, not a lot of cushion between the set....and well, the internal workings of me! Several times over the past 24 hours, I have had painful pinches.....I am assuming the metal set pushing where it should not! I am going to have to pull the set when I am home later today....I fear I would not be able to sleep on my stomach :) My first such experience with a metal set, I have learned to use the teflon sets in areas that do not have a layer of.....cushioning......

This certainly does not turn me against the metal sets, they are still by far my favorite (lovely no tic tac toe scars...although I was trying to spell my name....) just a lesson learned!

Happy Holidays one and all! Be Safe!

I hope you get everything straightened out with the metal set. Ouch! I hadn't thought about that, but I'll bet that area is a little more sensitive to the metal. Good luck!
