Wordless Wednesday… Do As I Say, Not As I Do.

From the Do As I Say, Not As I Do Department…


I started the day with about 20 units left in my reservoir. I thought I would make it back home after work before that was all gone, but, well, you know how things happen… Sometimes things happen that are out of your control.

I wound up getting home about half an hour later than I expected. The good news is that my pump, though scratched and extremely dirty, was still pumping. Despite what the display in the photo shows.

I’ve since changed my site and reservoir, and given my pump a thorough cleaning. I promise.

    A thorough cleaning … I don’t think I’ve ever done that with my pump? (Well, I’ve tried with my older Medtronic with the slightly-yellowed-but-once-white buttons, but without much success.

    On the other hand, I know that the pump still has insulin after it says it’s empty. I never figured out just how much. I don’t want to know…

    I’ve been there 🙂 Always nice you can still squeeze an extra unit or two out of it 😛
