Nate's DexCom receiver stopped beeping
DexCom is over-nighting a new receiver
It crapped out on Friday and the new one will not be here until Monday (no Saturday delivery)
Nate was dx with strep throat on Friday and it was time to change his sensor. Boo! The trouble with changing the sensor (which was very close to falling off at this point) was we would have have to change the sensor AGAIN when we receive the new receiver on Monday. But with Nate having strep I decided to go ahead and insert the new sensor. I was feeling like it was a total waste until this happened . . .
High blood sugar and LARGE ketones. After a pod change, an injection and a lot of fluids it was nice to watch Nate's bs come down on the DexCom. After 2 hours he was 150 or so with a double arrow down so we gave him a snack and then he remained steady at 130. Without Dex we would have had to do a million finger pokes on Nate's already chewed up little finger tips so I guess the extra sensor was worth it!
