come on, you know you could too.
I carry a fold up book light when we travel.
At home, we have a little lantern that I got at Target.
No, just the meter, it's plenty bright.
I used to do the same thing with those mini maglites.
We use a headlamp. Keep it by her bedside with her meter and glucose tabs, so it's always there. Love it!
Ditto here! I was reading this thread backward and starting to think I must be the only one.
I flip on her overhead light, do what I need to do, and get out of there within about two minutes. She never notices. If her little brother has snuck in to sleep with her (she has a big bed, LOL) he will sometimes pull the covers over his head, but that's about it- he doesn't really wake up, either.
Yep, I'm anxiously awaiting the end of our pump warranty (Cozmo) in 2 1/2 years. I'm hoping by then there will be some kind of remote/pump/Dex integration and I won't have to pat him down at night to find the darn pump!
Pole lamp beside bed with low watt bulb. I'm over 40 - gotta have light.
ROFL, Joy! Sounds like something I would do!
My husband uses the FreeStyle Lite as a flashlight while doing a calibration on the CGM. It's pretty comical to see him with the meter is his mouth with a strip inserted and hanging out the end, while putting another strip into the Nav. That's why I have a headlight sitting in the Amazon shopping cart.
That is hilarious and I can totally see myself doing something like that in a sleep deprived state.
Thanks for sharing.
OP - we use the hall light.
Seriously no way, I can't even do it with the pathetic PDM light LOL
So my question is this, how hard would it be for the pump companies to intergrate some little light onto the endo of both the poker and meter?
It would probably cost them all of a nickle to do this. I guess it's my biggest pet peeve of the meter!
LOL, made me laugh ... though I think our endo would not be in favor of this change
I keep this http://www.rei.com/product/786024 on my bedpost. I use it's red setting to find my way, find the meter, find the pump, find a finger, then the white light from the Freestyle Flash to see the blood. It's so much easier than holding the flash in my mouth (previous method). If I have to wake him for some reason, like to drink water if he's high, I rotate the headlamp to point at the ceiling and set it for white. It gives just enough soft light to see by without shocking the eyes. It's only downside is the cost of lithium batteries CR2032, but they last a few months usually so not a big deal. I use the same headlamp for backpacking, it weighs almost nothing.
Haha, that is too funny!
