Sensor Failed! 4-27-19

Well, it turns out that the sensor from Sunday afternoon failed today after lunch. I had a feeling that this was going to happen because the sensor kept going in and out with the results/numbers/question marks/hourglass. I was also woken up a few times early morning because the receiver was alarming that I was dropping.

Right now, the new sensor is still in the warm up period while I'm typing this. It won't be able to give any numbers until near 5:30 pm when I do the two start up calibrations at dinner time. Once those are done and I've had something to eat, then it's time to head over to do some dancing tonight. That's another good thing about a new sensor being used. I was a little worried if the old one had still been working on and off and then I had gone to do dancing. I don't like when things medical happen when I'm on the go. Very stressful and not fun.

Hi Leah and poor you, as does this sounds stressful so I hope this sensor is OK. And you enjoy dancing tonight. 💃 😊

Thank you, Jerry! :-) The theme for the dance tonight is Baseball! I have a feeling the new sensor will be okay for a few hours after it gets started. :-)

Leah - I can’t understand why these Sensors are so unreliable? Are they prototypes that you are testing for a new Supplier. Can’t you choose a different make?

No, they are the same ones that have been used since the company does the sensors by hand.

Maybe quality control needs improving, especially if they are hand made! Shame - for you - that they are so poor.....☹️

It’s a fantastic suggestion for me to bring up in a few weeks. A new free sensor is going to be sent to me this coming week.

Good Luck Activity 2004 .
