But found it after going through the garbage... yuck! When we realized it was missing tonight I remembered throwing out the old sensor and was horrified to think that the transmitter was still attached. Thankfully it turned out that I had only thrown it out yesterday. For a moment I was worried I had thrown it out two days ago and it would be gone forever as yesterday was garbage day. You can imagine I was praying like crazy, and am so thankful that God was good to us!
Clearly we are rookie Dexcom users. The problem is that my daughter finds the insertion super painful, so I've been giving her a break of a few days after the old one comes out, or in this last case, when it failed on day 6... grrr!!!! So now we have a secure spot that we will put the transmitter for those rest days so that mamma doesn't have to go digging through the trash again!
Anyone else ever do something super dumb like this?
