Yesterday was day four on the pump and the first time I had to change my pump site. I followed all the steps all 13 steps that is. Overall, changing the site was not bad. The worst part was taking off the sticky thing. Ouch! It hurt much worse then taking off a bandage. It felt like I was being stung. After the initial sting, I got all my prepping devices reservoir, insulin, prep pad, you name it was on my dinning room table. My pump consultant said it should only take me ten minutes to change the site, boy was he wrong. I spent 30 minutes trying to get all the air bubbles out. I guess it's not good to drop the vial of insulin on the floor before starting. The next time I change the site is Wednesday. I hope it will go a lot smoother. I will try not to let my clumsy hands drop the vial.
In other pump news, I finally slept through the night without a sugar low. It has been a long time since I have been able to do that. The pump is great
