Well, I am still not 100% unsick (although just about 95% today), and now I'm getting these inexplicable headaches every night. Not cool! I haven't narrowed down the cause yet, but I hope I can soon. Other than that, I've been kind of excited.
I finally got my boxes of supplies! However, I opened the box that should have contained three months' supply of Sure-Ts and IV 3000, and it had...one box of Sure Ts and one box of IV Prep. I'm not sure how this happened, but I guess I will call MM tomorrow and get them to send out the rest. I did get four samples from MM, even though I was told I'd receive two and the packing list says two, so that will help for awhile. I was planning on changing them every two days, though. I get kind of nervous when I'm low on supplies, heh.
I did the first training today. Mainly it was a lot of "hmm, you've done this." The most surprising thing was that the CDE couldn't sign off on my settings because they are outside the settings they're allowed to set. According to their formula, my basal should be .25/hour and my correction factor should be 1 unit to 40 points. By my calculation (i.e. me-based equation instead of everybody-based equation), my basal should be .15/hour. My correction factor is 1 unit to 50 points. Oh, and my insulin ratio is wrong according to their formula, but she didn't say wrong in what way. But I know those last two things are definitely correct. She said they'd call my endo to get different settings approved before I start on insulin on Friday, but I'm not sure it will be all of them. I might have to have the higher basal, which wouldn't be horrible for me; I just don't need it. But it's probably obvious that the formula doesn't fit me because it's designed for people who make no insulin. Anyway, I will be doing the saline for two days.
Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!
