We're still so new to all of this CGMS though. She's had the ???'s pop up twice and I'm still unsure why? She has it clipped to her belt on the opposite side from her pump. I also called around to every local pharmacy looking for the Skin Tac or Mastisol and no one carries it. Any other recommendations on how to keep the sensor stuck? It's started to lift a little around the edges already and it hasn't even been 6 hours! We're spose to keep this thing on for 7 days and I don't know how to keep it stuck unless I use medical tape (which is what I might have to do!). Other than the few bumps in getting things started, she's loving the idea that she can look down and see her BG. I wasn't too sure she'd like having something else clipped to her but she hasn't minded it one bit! She came in about an hour ago and told me she didn't want next Monday to come. I asked her why? She said because she didn't want to send "Dexter" back. **sigh** She told me she felt "safe" with him and Herbie. It breaks my heart to know that she feels she needs medical devices to be "safe". I know it's a comfort to her to be able to look down at a device and see what her blood sugar is whenever she wants without having to prick her finger. It just makes me sad.
I've been more emotional than usual this afternoon. Not sure what's going on? I'm thinking it's the aftermath of the stress I was feeling prior to Kacey's appointment. I get so worked up and then to find out that I'm actually doing a good job just put me in an emotional spiral. I'm sad because I have to watch my baby play while sporting the "Inspector Gadget" belt. I can tell she's not bothered by it and she's moved on like it's "normal", which is wonderful but it's still heartbreaking. I know I shouldn't feel sorry for her but I'm her Mom and I'm allowed to feel like that. Don't get me wrong....I'd rather see her sporting all her gadgets over taking 8 shots a day!!! I'm so thankful we have Herbie :)
