Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone. Sorry this was typed up later than I had planned, but I thought I would have more time to do this posting today instead of last night before going to bed. Some of this has to do with the update on my sensors and the other part is dealing with my upcoming appointment for tomorrow morning with the Endocrinologist.
To start off with, I had to call to get another new, free sensor to be sent in the next 5-7 days. Last night ( and most of the day) was just not good when it came to how the sensor was behaving. After so many times going in and out with readings, alarms going off since 12 am/midnight, around lunch time and during/after dinner, I had decided enough was enough and it had to be removed/changed. So, when I got done switching the sensors ( the newest sensor I have on is doing okay, so far), I talked to the Rep. who answered the phone and I explained to them what had happened. I even brought up the fact that the alarm went off even when the number on the receiver wasn't dropping. Why would there be an alarm going off when the number was there and it was having an arrow going sideways? That makes me curious and worried because the receiver never usually alarms for sideways numbers. The Rep. couldn't give me an answer for that one other than saying I could definitely have a free replacement.
The other thing that bothered me about how this sensor that got removed was acting was: When there were readings, they wouldn't stay for more than 10-15 minutes, so you never knew when a 'good' time would be to stop a sensor and change it for a new one! So frustrating! But, it's the only one I can use for right now, so I can't do anything about it too much at the moment.
I'm expecting to get the free sensor that I had asked for last week by the end of today ( hopefully).
Okay, now for the Endocrinology appointment part of this posting......
My appointment is scheduled for 9:30 am and it will be done by virtual/video chat. I'm hoping to get my A1c and a few other test results during that time that had been done last week. I hope the A1c went down slightly. I will let you know what I find out when it's possible either way. I'm planning to have most of my appointments done by video chat until everything settles down/is better from COVID 19, if possible.
Stay safe, happy and healthy! More to come soon. Watch this page!
