I’m sick of writing about pump failures and pumps alarms.
I’m sick of even thinking about pump failures and pump alarms.
You’re probably sick of reading about my pump failures and my pump alarms, too.
Let’s talk about something else… So... Some weather we’re having, huh?
Oh fuck. The only thing to talk about is what’s happening. So did I call the HelpLine after yesterday’s fiasco?
No. Frankly, what’s the point? They’ll replace it, I’m sure. Probably with another used one. I don’t think I’ve raised a big enough stink over their replacement policy to have changed it yet. And it would come by next day mail. And by now I’d be able to program it drunk at the bottom of a coal mine at midnight during an eclipse. But then it would start shedding motor errors within days.
Pre-cognition sucks. Particularly when you don’t like the future.
So now what? The stand-alone CGM monitor called Guardian doesn’t talk to the Sentry, and like Revel, Guardian suffers from a petite little voice. The best alarms in the world won’t help me if they are too low for me to hear them at night.
I’ve considered neutering Revel. Metaphorically ripping out its life-sustaining insulin system and just using it as a upgraded Guardian, and breaking out the CoZmo again to get insulin reliably into my body. But that’s back to multiple devices that don’t talk to each other. It’s a patch work. Not a system.
To be honest, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’ve put a new infusion set on today, a couple of hours ago. So far so good, but every time this little fucker vibrates for some perfectly valid reason, I nearly jump of my skin.
I guess I’ll let it ride a bit. See if the plague of Motor Errors continues, worsens, or abates.
And then we’ll see what we see.
