June 2021

NSV I think. Using a Smart Pen instead of an insulin pump.

I saw my Endocronolist Friday.  

I've lost about 30 pounds since I started Profile by Sanford.  My A1C is down to 6.5

I've gone several days without dosing insulin, and basically had my pump off.  

She suggested that I set the pump to deliver the minimum amount of insulin as she was concerned about clogging and asked if I wanted to go off the pump.  I asked about smart pen's and she suggested the InPen.  We jumped through insurance hoops and prescription hoops and the InPen arrived today.

They are a bit difficult to load (I was sent two, I'm keeping one loaded in the refrigerator).

It's going to feel a bit odd -- going from the Medtronic tubed pump to the Omnipod was odd, but I still had a large device attached to me.  Now I just have the CGMS.


Super trip to visit family

I just got back from a week trip to visit family.  Got to see everyone, including the latest member of the family.

It’s rare to visit them without another event going on — usually a dog show.  It’s also the first long trip I’ve made after starting the new job.

I stayed at a Home 2 Suite and booked a mobility accessible room.  It was very nice.  I was able to work all week.

I learned that I could drive all day after a full week of work.  I’m still exhausted at the end of the day, so I wouldn’t want to drive after work.  I also learned that currently I can work remotely effectively from a hotel room.

I also lost weight — I have a feeling it was walking Summer.  She desperately wanted to go and she was a great traveling companion.  

On a sad note, I lost a ring that means a lot to me.  We’re hoping it in the car.  I remember, an odd sensation as I was adjusting my technology power cables.  My next task to is to clean out the car and look for it.
