All of my complaints of the Paradigm 522 appear to be resolved in the new Paradigm Revel. Due to the structure of my medical plan, I haven't given in to the idea of upgrading though. Until now. I charged the CGM Transmitter for 12 hours overnight, and it worked for about an hour this morning getting ready to start providing readings, but now, 4 hours later, I'm unable to get a signal out of the darn thing.
It (the CGM transmitter) is 4 years old, has a big ol' crack in it, and is dirty as all heck from the years of tape goo being stuck on every 8 days or so. I have to wonder, is it time to get a new one? Or is the AAA Battery in the charger dead? Or did I do something else wrong, like not seat the transmitter fully in the charger?
Who knows. I guess I'll try again to charge it when I get home from work, and maybe I'll see how close I am to my individual deductible. if I'm close, maybe I'll jump on it. And maybe I'll also start ordering some supplies.
New sort-of-related Topic: I have 15 extra boxes of (ten) reservoirs on my shelf, and only 5 boxes of (twelve) infusion sets. Thats a 150 reservoirs to 60 infusion sets! I guess Minimed packages things like the hot dog and hot dog bun folks do. Can't they match the number of reservoirs with the number of infusion sets in a box? ugh.
