So bad day all around! went to test for dinner and I was at 300mg/dl and I was floored!! So I removed the site and took some insulin with my pen, before switching everything just to be sure I got a correction dose. Well I looked at the site I removed and there was no kink in the canulla and no blood so I went to switch the resevior and noticed that strong nothing like it smell of insulin! Pulled the res. out and there was insulin in my pump where the resevior goes!! I was dumbfounded because I don't understand how this is possible with no leaks I can see. So I called medtronic and gave them the details and they are sending my replacement pump to switch out because 1. it could just be the res. itself, but since the pump is not water tight and the location of the insulin in my pump is near the pump motor they have to send a new one to ensure no damage, and 2. If it is not the res. causing the issue they need to find out what did. So I am pump free till around 12 noon tomorrow and they are also sending replacement sites too. I am a little upset because I had a test in class tonight, but because of the high my professor said to make it up because he didn't want my grade to reflect a diabetes malfunction. I know I should be happy that my professors look out for me but I was so ready. Oh well at least I caught it before I got any higher. I did check for blood ketones and they were 2.2 last I checked so I am chugging water and shooting up till I am in happy numbers again. This sucks non the less though considering I could be fretting about important stuff like school or soccer practice, oh the life of a T1 pumper. Thankful for the pump company though ensuring my pump gets here asap!
