Ok  - very long night! Put it this way apparently I was not getting any Insulin with the Metronic - I did check and bolus - but I am so use to having highs so I just thought I didn't bolus enough (330) - so went to bed and was going to the bathroom and thristy so many times that I finally went and checked my blood, ready for this - over 600!!!!!! so I ended up going to the ER - yep - not happy and I don't know about this pump!!!

thanks, doing a lot better!
When I finally looked at the piece that goes inside I noticed it was bent at the very end so that is why I wasn't getting any insulin.  Will try again just not right now!

Well it's been awhile!  Been a hard summer, I lost my best friend on July 14 (his birthday) and didn't have funeral until August 6.  So have been emotionally drained to say the least!

Went to my 3 month visit and I am trying the medtronic for 3 days!  My doctor hates the Omni - the data that it gives him is what he hates!  So the rep was there and so we decided that I would try it, so we will see how it goes!

Hope everyone is doing good!

Question - Staying HIGH

Ok got a question, I have been staying high since yesterday.  I have been doing my insulin like normal (I'm bad eat basically the same breakfast and lunch) but I keep staying way up - on my dexcom it's HIGH - no number just HIGH!  I bolus my usual lunch and did my shot of Symlin (I was at 106) then it went through the roof.  My question is - could it be the insulin? I'm not stressed or anything pretty mellow or is it just some weird shit going on?

Any ideas - would love to hear them.

Well at 1:30 last night, woke from a dead sleep, still don't know what woke me up, so I looked at my CBM - low - I think it was 50.  Crap, then it started hitting me, you know the shakes, fuzzy feeling, so got up and got crackers (knew being that low I needed food not tabs), didn't help - went and got juice, didn't help.  Went and looked in the cabinet where sometimes candy can be hiding - yes reese's peanut butter cups! Ate two finally felt better went to sleep thinking ok now I'm going to be so high when I get up.  But it was only 216, I know still high but at least not as bad as I thought it would be.

Thanks pancreas, I love getting woke up in the middle of the night!!!

Well I went to my nephew's graduation Tuesday, I still can't believe he graduated!  You know that means in 4 years my son will be graduating then the next year my daughter!  Still can't believe it.  Oh well time flies when your having fun.

My sister made a wonderful dip while I was at her house - of course it wasn't diabetic friendly, but it was so good.  It had mayo, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, bacon bits and some kind of sweet syrup on top (of course I'm getting a bottle).  You heat it in the oven and use town house crackers to dip.  It doesn't sound real good (I turned my nose up at first) but let me tell you it was the bomb!!  Of course she also had to make a chocolate bunt cake with chocolate chips and it was the same - to die for!!  Did I tell you she is diabetic too!  I guess that's what you get living in the south!
