"I switched from OmniPod to the t:slim. It is sometimes difficult to switch pumps even after the standard 4 years. Your doctor may help here. Pump issues--difficulty seeing screen...sticking buttons...pods won't stay on, etc? The Pod is…"
I am a new OmniPod user (23 January)... Any advice regarding sleeping with the Pod? I have deliberately avoided sleeping ON the pod. Is it necessary to avoid sleeping directly on the pod? Getting a good night's rest is not my strong suit to begin with.
More "stuff"!! How's the weather at your end...hot and muggy here...was going to weed after the brief shower we had here yesterday....but the air was very thick....and my back still recuperating from having washed the kitchen floor 3x over on all fours (the old fashion way) the day before when Riley (2) decided to spit out his juice all over the place. I would have been arrested for what I toyed doing to him! The room that our daughter was in before moving into her own place is now taken up as a storage room for Timothy and Steph (son and d-i-l). The storage unit they have rented is all full!!! They're moving into their own house starting the 19th of this month! The repeat empty nest syndrome lol. It sure will feel odd to have the whole house to ourselves again! Steph (d-i-l) has a bad ear/sinus infection. She went to a walk in clinic yesterday, and was put on meds, including ear drops. Early evening, her ear was bleeding, which is not uncommon with ear infection...but I nevertheless offered to take her to ER, knowing that we'd be there for at least 6 hours...no no no...she didn't want to go. Midnight, as I'm coming out of the washroom to go to bed, she and Timothy are at the kitchen table...seems that now she feels she should take me up on that earlier offer. I said to her, "you realize that we'll be there all night 'till mid morning anyway!" She had gone to the internet, and of course got scared by the comments and suggested diagnoses of her bleeding ear! (sigh....who listens to me!!) So I said...call telehealth (a telephone access here, that helps to give you a heads up about your symptoms). They basically paraphrased my comment to her..."you have been seen, you DO have an ear infection which may bleed, you are on medication for it, you do NOT have cancer nor have you suffered trauma to the head. Call your doctor in the morning if it is still bleeding" Who listens to me!!! So this morning, she called her doctor who will see her at....3pm, and the appointment was later changed to 7pm! Guess the doc doesn't share her concern!! So...life goes on in the Miller household! Sounds SO much like a soap that I should ask you to stay tuned tomorrow...same time same station! How's life at YOUR end??
Hey Janice....it's been some while :) Long past 4 days! My classroom is clean....student's hours of French are recorded....made some copies in prep for September ...and designed a new game to help in French. Yesterday was the last of the 2 day First Aid course....I passed! But MOSTLY yesterday was the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL for teachers at our school!!! I'M OFF 'TILL THE LAST WEEK OF AUGUST!!!!!
I was to meet up with other teachers yesterday at a colleague's house for a little year end celebration. Got in the car, started it, and the car said....clickclickclickclickclick! I remember we had that trouble last year....has to do with the car's AC/starter! So Len boosted the car, and all seemed fine, but I wasn't pushing it and decided to stay home instead! Right now I feel fine, but yesterday I was a little off and sugars were a tad high! Could be the heat...it was very hot today also! Slept in this morning ...'till 9!!! What bliss! Today is our youngest grandson's 2nd birthday! Tomorrow, our 33rd Anniversary....dinner out perhaps. Sunday the 1st of July, is Canada Day! Doing a picnic and whatnot...water park for the kids, followed by the usual city wide fireworks at dusk.! What about YOU?? Your 4th is coming up...any plans? Luv....linda
A New Year....already 2012!!! I have made SO many friends here at tu., some I meet daily, some I meet frequently.
Some...occasionally. No matter, I have been supported and have felt loved.
I don't know how I managed before "coming home"...but here is where I belong :)
Tu.diabetes is my second family...here, I need not explain nor defend myself. Here,
I am free to be me ♥ Thank you for your friendship Janice. A BLESSED NEW YEAR to you and yours....linda :)
For now, in order to have full functionality on TuDiabetes, you would need to use a browser other than IE9. Most likely the problem you describe with sending messages is due to the use of IE9. Social networks on Ning like ours will soon be supporting IE9, but not yet... :(
Janice: I just noticed your comment about the messages.(It came up on the sidebar). I had the same problem and was told that I had to change my browser. Instead, I opened TuD, went to "tools" then "compatability settings". There I was able to add TuD. Finally, after trying for ages, I was able to send private messages. Hope this helps!
