The joy of the holidays is here!!
Merry Christmas to one and all.
I will be enjoying the festivities from work (sigh). Don't feel bad, I am there so those with kids can be home celebrating. I think of it as having Christmas with my work family!
Have to love the glucose sensors over the holidays (well for that matter love it all the time!). I was at a party last night and there was a HUGE table of food. You would think that I pigged out, but I was not able, too busy chatting!! I guess that worked to my favor. I will remember to add that as a tip next year for people....don't eat, just keep talking! I could make millions selling that holiday waist line saver!
There has not been any big news or breakthroughs from Medtronic for quite awhile now. I think since the release of the Minilink in August. If I had to predict, I don't think we will hear too much until the new meter is introduced in 2008.....but I think everyone would agree we are up for an upgrade soon!
On my, I almost forgot to share my scarry pump experience last night! At the party (Thanks Gary for the great party!), I looked down to check my sugar reading. I felt all smart to have the pump totally out of view as I was dolled up for the party! I reached (like a lady) into the waist of my leotards to check...and the pump face was blank! Ohhh my heart sank....I gave my party-hosts a quick hug, and took off homewards. That was a long drive home, as I tried and tried to wake the pump up. NOTHING! This was really strange....and might I add, not fun. Before I was going to pick up the phone to call the hotline, I decided to try a new battery. FEUF, that worked and the pump came back to life and was chugging away like nothing ever happened.
What the heck happened? I was sitting strong at 2 battery lines before this all happened? I may have knocked it around, but that is normal for the pump and it's daily adventure. I can not explain why this happened, and I know Medtronic will not be able to explain why this happened.....so I will be getting a new pump for Christmas! Should I wrap it under the tree? Maybe the delivery person will be dressed up like Santa! What a strange occurrence, but what a great sigh of relief when it came back to life......
Merry Christmas to one and all! Happy Holidays!! Stay warm!
