I went in a had my OmniPod pump training this afternoon. A nurse educator named Ann set me up and got me started. The whole 1.5 hour training session was a bit of a bore (since I’d figured out how to do 95% of the things she walked me through).
So the pod is stuck to me, but I’m having a little anxiety now. I’m kind of a tosser and turner in the night, and I’m afraid that the cannula (the little plastic tube that stays under my skin) will pull out and I won’t know it. I know it’s made for active people and what not, but I’m still being gingerly with my movements out of fear.
I walked around my house and gathered up all of my half used pens and put them back in the refrigerator. I emptied my needle bottles, save for the one on my desk. I gathered up my needles and put them all in my needle cookie jar, and for the first time in a long time I put the top on the jar. Now I’m waiting a couple minutes to test my blood sugar for my 2 hour post dinner test. I had pad thai curry (as projected) and I calculated that it had 20g of carbs for half a serving. Hopefully it’s a good number, but I know that there will be some adjusting to be done in the next couple weeks.
More updates soon.
