Friday Funnies- 10/26 Busy D Bee

Tomorrow is our annual comprehensive (and quarterly) A1c appointment.  If you are like me and have a history of cramming the night before a big test, I bet you can guess what I have been doing....

Something that takes a lot of time and whole lot of patience.  And no, not studying.


Yes, downloading.  Not the kind of old-school "downloading" (did we even use that term back then?????) that requires memorization and books.  Instead, the modern day download of tiny microprocessors cleverly disguised as medical equipment.

A whole lot of downloading from two DexComs and two Animas Ping insulin pumps.

I am not sure what your thoughts are about the "dongle" that reads the Ping but I think it makes even the calmest people a little crazy.  It takes hours and several reboots. 

I swear that I am not moving the sensor!  $%&!  (insert bleep!)

And why is it that the DexCom seems to take years to load data? 

I have been up and down and back around at least four times only to see the same data load position of 52%.  Are you kidding me?  Load!  $%&!  (insert a second bleep!)

So if any pump/CGM manufacturers out there want a little (bleeping) advice.... please start using 4G because my simple little cellphone is a million times faster than either of these!
