And the award for the first kid this summer to jump in the pool with his pump goes to...
Us, yay, do we get an award?
Actually we may not be the first, has this happened to anyone else this summer?
My son got out of the pool to bolus for a snack and thought he'd stay out a while, I of course was distracted with the other kids and at some point in the next half hour or so he decided to jump back in. By the time I realized to ask him, he was getting out to tell me, uh oh, he left it on.
It seemed to work just fine, but we called medtronic and they said do not put it back on him, it was likely damaged and they are sending a new one Thursday am (because of the holiday).
He was "thrilled" to get the dreaded lantus shot but its only a day and a half, and honestly, there is a piece of me that is happy he had an hour or so of forgetting about his damn diabetes.
So, putting aside whether his BGs are a little off, is there anything else I should be aware of during this short transition back to injections? Our nurse practioner and I figured out his lantus based on his current basals, the carb ratios and sensitivity stay the same, we temporarily reduce the basal when he is back on the pump on Thursday until the lantus runs through his system. Anything Im forgetting or not thinking of?
