New Year

         I made back home yesterday and now I am trying to get used to the time difference. I hope everyone has a great New Year's day. I am not doing a resolution this year because I felt like I have already accomplished so much in 2012 that making one now would seem silly if I am already on a roll but I do have idea's of what I want to accomplish. I had a really relaxed New Year's Eve and a great start so far for 2013. I am hoping to find a solution for my infusion set issues which crept up during my vacation. I am back to making it just shy of a day for an infusion set. I do have a Dr. appointment tomorrow so hopefully I will be able to try apidra insulin instead of novolog. Hoping that is it. The weirdest issue I had with my infusion sets is that the IV 3000 would not stick to my skin when using the benadryl spray. I was thankfully able to use just the IV 3000 without the spray for the most part but did have some skin reaction when not using the benadryl spray but I simply used hydrocortisone cream to get rid of any reactions. The IV 3000 still did not last as long as it normally would for my Dexcom which created issues. The funny thing is that when I am in Texas I have no issues but I guess the weather differences do affect the sites. A new thing learned from this trip.


  1. Interesting! I never would have thought that location/weather would change things so much.

  2. In the last year or two my skin has become quite sensitive.I used all my normal everyday things so I figured it had to be weather related differences.I have not had any issues with the IV 3000 or the benadryl when in Texas.
