No she isn't on a pump,I went and learn how to take better care of her by watching everything she does because as now I can see where she would forget what she was doing and now I fill up her shots myself and am learning how to give it to her. Those people at the diabetic clinic are working with me instead of again't me,thank u 4 asking.

Hope you are feeling good. I hate the dentist more than anything. I hear they have a high rate of suicide cuz so many people feel that way. But if they put you to sleep its not too bad. I work with a girl who is having all her teeth pulled (yikes : O She's been just getting Novocaine they do 4-6 at a time. She is a fragile diabetic and has gum disease. I had an terrible day today. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Sorry about not replying right back. I went to the clinic and there were very helpful about teaching the proper way to fill up the Syringes without getting air in it. So I am a learning the ropes. Take care of your selfs.It always help when someone is helping you.

I've got Dee (NZ Roche Pump Manager) on to it now and she is getting in touch with the software developers to see if she can sort it out. If I still don't have any luck. I'll get on to Jake.

Had one heck of a day. Got up this morning (if you can call it that) and was waaaaaay low. After fighting it for 1 hour decided I might better take a gluagon shot. Went from like 22 to 366 in no time. After I get that right my daughter comes over and want's to go get a chilla to bread with cane (our dog) we get her after 5 hours and stopping by to see my g-mother. Then we go to Rayn's and eat. This is trueflly the 1st time I've gotten on here for any period of time. Was on here this morning for like 30 minutes then............

I'm glad your back to Marie now. It does take a toll out dosen't it? Just do what the Dr said and you will be ok.

Hi Marie, I can't remember if I answered your e-mail welcoming me to TuDiabetes, my son got sick on 2/11 and died on 2/19. I am a mess to say the least, but I remeimbered I had joined this group to get a grip on my diabetes. Since Joshua got sick and since his passing my bs have been good. I had started counting carbs just prior to this. I have a question, Seagator, referred me to you, is there a group for members that have lost loved ones? I am leaving for Ga. in the early morning, so I may have to respond upon my return next week.

I've got another 1.5 years on my might D-tron, and I've been really pleased with the customer service I've received from Roche.
