For $100, the reason construction hasn't begun on a building.
"What is a site problem?"
For $200, why little Suzie can't see the blackboard in her classroom.
"What are sight problems?"
For $300, it is why that web-page just won't load.
"What are site problems?"
You are on a roll!!
And for $400, the probable cause of those floopy blood sugar readings in my last post?
(can you see where this is going?) "WHAT IS A SITE PROBLEM'?
That's right. When I changed my infusion set on Thursday afternoon, I discovered what I think was the problem. As a new pumper, I'm still very much in the learning phase, but it was quite obvious something was wrong. I snapped a picture, but I'm not sure how much you can see.
If you look closely, above the red mark where the cannula was there is a small blister type thingie. I'm not sure if it had insulin or puss (ick) or just air inside, but I've never seen anything like that before when I remove a site. So, along with the dozens of other reasons my blood sugars may have been "off", we can add this one.
For now, I'll just focus on the wise words of my new blog-friend and "give myself a break". Things won't ever be perfect all the time, so we just do what we can and move forward.
