Dexcom Trial: Day Two

Today is day two of my Dexcom trial; let's just say that it has been an interesting day...

Last night I was awoken twice by the Dexcom because I was under 80. It seems like the Dexcom wants to wake me up whenever I am drifting off to sleep. At 3 in the morning-ish I was hovering at 73, so I took 4 glucose tabs and went to bed. I awoke at 7 and checked my graph. I went from 73 to 146. I continued going up to about 230 and didn't go down until lunch.

* later that day *

I was going to get ice cream, so I tested my blood. I reached down to grab my Dexcom from my belt loop, and it wasn't there...

It's just a small gap...
I ran around the house frantically screaming for five minutes, but then I found it on the floor in my room. I had been disconnected for and hour and 41 minutes.

Let me say what we are all thinking at this moment:
Way to go, Sarah.

Moral of Story: I think I need a new storage unit for the Dexcom...

Shout out to Erin:
You rock!~
