After having our first sensor totally rock, the second one has been one royal pain in the arse!!
Might have been the placement...on Bean's tummy, not quite in the best cushiony spot available.
Might have been just a wonky sensor.
It gave us and ERR 1 on Sunday and we did the 'wait and hour and enter BG' and it came back around.
Last night, however, not so much!
ERR 1. Bean went on to bed and I went up an hour or so later and entered a BG.
ERR 1, again. Headed back downstairs to watch some TV and wait out the hour.
I go up to check on her before I go to bed and this is what I see...
the 'dreaded' ???, oh no! ;)
So, I attempted to enter a BG to see if it would come back around again....nope, ERR 1, again.
Wait another hour...went to bed, but couldn't go to sleep for the life of me.
Try to enter BG...nope!
Decided to try the 'stop sensor/start sensor without actually changing it' and proceeded to lay in bed for two more hours, snoozing between Bug's calls to help her blow her nose and Ubergeek's coughs and snores.
BzzT, BzzT comes through the monitor and off I go to enter two BGs in the hopes that Wilma will come around.
Uh, Nope. Nothing doing.
At this point I just shut her off because I wasn't interested in hearing anymore BzzTs and entering in BGs for naught...and I was hoping that sleep would finally come in longer than 30 minute spurts!
So, this morning we did a real sensor change and I called Dexcom to have the wonky one replaced.
This was my first experience talking with them and I was very pleased with the level of service. A replacement is on its way, as well as our next three months' worth of sensors. Yipee!!
The new sensor is working pretty well...not quite spot on yet, but way the heck better than ??? for sure!
Sporting a new Tallygear zipper pouch!
Bean loves her tummietote, but wanted another
option that didn't have a full band and velcro.
A girl's gotta have her options!! ;)
sorry about the not-in-focus...my phone and I don't always get along!!
