"Haha, that's funny! But to spice it up a little bit, the Endo or CDE of the loosing team should also loose their job in real life. Since we just proved they are not capable!"

"No problem at all. I just wanted to bring it up since diabeetusista is also using relatively small amounts of insulin. Makes a lot of sense when on the pump though!"

Endo appointment is setup for 1/8. Can't wait to see what the numbers will be after the holidays.

Usually my spikes are during summer vacation, but we'll see.

Wish me luck ;)
