My friend and co-worker Suzi texted me this morning and asked if I wanted to accompany her and her two peanuts (kids) to Ikea. My response was what it always was when people ask if I want to go get lost amongst droves of organizational solutions–YES. I only spent $30.00 of my own money and mostly got things for my office.
When I went to the Mall of America on a field trip in spring, I bought 3 lego keychains at the LEGO store. I bought a Yoda for my sister, Beth, because she is wise. I bought mermaid for Suzi because it’s blonde (like she is) and has yellow skin like she does. Just kidding! Yellow is her favorite color. And I bought a robot for me because I am a robot (with my OmniPod). I smile every time I see our key rings!
I actually got to be a double-robot for the last three and a half days. My blood sugars were whack, and Dr. K (who is back from maternity leave!) suggested a 3 day constant glucose monitoring study. The monitor they hooked-up to me on Friday didn’t display any numbers for me to see, so I still had to test frequently. I had it taken off this morning. That sucker was painful to insert. It believe it was the Guardian CGM by Medtronic. It had a cannula that was least an inch long. It was kind of terrifying. I hope that the Dexcom isn’t half as painful to insert because I’d really like to get one in the next few months!
