"There are things that you can do that will help make it last too, like filling the tubing manually instead of using what is in the reservoir. Someone on the FB group does it that way."

Hi Mary. I just saw your friend request today because I haven't been active doing that. I don't miss much about the ADA boards, but I do miss the closer "friendships" that I experienced there. I like this board but get a little more lost with posts being split between various forums and groups. I started a post today that I thought would end up in the Dexcom Users group and it ended up in General Diabetes Topics. I think I have a bit more to learn here.

You're absolutely right about Dexcom being easy to use. Although the results aren't perfectly accurate all of the time, they usually make sense.

HI Mary, Haven't seen you in a while. Been sort of busy with things at home I will try to pm you when I get a chance then you can letTimsma and others know what is happening. Good to see some of my favorites over here that I haven't seen in a while like April, etc.

Hi, Sweetie... thanks for the support. Yup things are getting dicey over there. I feel as though I've gotten my head bitten off several times. WHOA! What was THAT all about! There are a few regulars who can get quite nasty. I almost feel as though I have to apologize before I post a comment! Yikes. Yes, I spend a lot of time in Cincy because the marketing jobs are down here...just nuthin much up in TC for me..but theoretically once I get my biz going, I really should be able to spend longer periods up there....fingers crossed. Yes, that is so lovely to think I could eat that slice of cake and compensate! Ha Ha!

Hi, Mary...so great to see you here! I forgot you were in MI! I'm going up in about a week to see my dear hubby in TC....we've been together 30 years on May 8th (Mother's Day!) Sending you and Melissa good wishes. April (Anni)
