Yesterday my replacement pump arrived in the mail. I did not hook up to it immediately as I was at my parents’ and we were about to eat dinner and I really wanted to hook up to it without the added confusion of bolusing for Chinese food.
When I did hook up I noticed right away during the priming step that this replacement pump was much quieter than my original. My original made all kinds of interesting clunking and clanking noises that this one does not. In addition I realized that my screen-on button was starting to stick on my old pump and until I saw it in comparison to the replacement pump I hadn’t even noticed it.
The most important thing is that I woke up with a blood sugar of 116. Considering I am fighting a lot of pain as I broke my arm on Monday and I’m still only in a temporary cast, this is a pretty good number!
