Before I get into the excitement of insulin not being delivered let me tell you the back story. My blood sugar was way above my set range before Kate and I had gone to dinner. I was a day over due for a site change and figured that was the reason, I quickly changed my site before dinner and was happy to see my blood sugar dropping as our dinner ended. I would go to sleep happy and excited to be up at 4:44 for work.
Then the beeping started just before midnight. I checked my blood sugar and it was out of range again. I put on a pair of shoes and ran to my car to get the extra pump site that I keep in my car just in case. I also grabbed the syringe that I keep in my car for emergencies and took a few units to get my blood sugar back in range. Everything went well and my blood sugar got back in range around 7am.
Did the pump site failure mess up my blood sugars, my sleep and how I felt Monday? Yes but I'm sorry I'm not going to sit here and cry about everything. Thats not me and not how I was raised. I can cry about bad diabetes days but what good does that do? I could also cry about how cold it has been, my job, and everything else in life. I'm sorry but I'm not looking at the bad. I'm happy that I have a pump that alerts me when things aren't working. I'm happy I woke up and caught it, I'm happy that Kate texted and made sure I was okay when I got to work. Bad things happen and so do good things, that is life. I mean I actually laughed when I changed the site because I got to ring in the new year right at midnight.
