"Thanks sooo much for posting this. This was a topic that I also asked about in a post. I take an Avonex injection once a week for MS. I gotten a lot of back and forth answers regarding whether or not acetaminophen is contraindicated. I'm about…"
What has happened to that 12 year old little girl hanging by her knees from her swing set wishing to be a year older in order to be considered a teenager?! Well, her head is going to explode if she has to keep struggling with the uncertainty of choosing the right insurance coverage. Sooo, I come to you for much needed wisdom.I have several health issues. My chief concern is, however, my diabetic care supplies. I have an insulin pump and a cgm. I already am aware that Medicare does NOT cover my…See More
"First, make sure that your insurance covers the training. It's incredibly easy to set up. You just need the high low settings from your endo. You might want to tweak those later.
I followed the video quite easily. Setting it up myself was a…"
"I had a few runs of bad pods.
I found the screen difficult to see
I hated the scrolling to enter numbers (the case with most other pumps)
I left the PDM behind a few times! User error, of course; but VERY frustrating!

"The t:slim is approximately 13 credit cards thick and a little less in length. You could put a rubber band around that many cards and get an idea. By the way...I don't have that many credit cards. Library card, Petco, insurance, etc."
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
