I was supposed to see my endo in two weeks, but she's having a baby (!) so they rescheduled me to this week, meaning I'd have to scramble to go get my labs done in time.
I hate fasting tests. Hate. If I get into the shower before I've eaten, I usually get very nauseated. And you wouldn't want to see me without coffee. It's not pretty.
Anyway, I got up at 7 so I could get to the lab when it opened (and not prolong the fasting). I turned my basal down to 70% because my bg is usually low by the time I get to the lab. I had just gotten out of the shower and thought I'd be done in 10 minutes. Then I happened to glance down at my tubing. Um, it's not supposed to be *that* color. Hey, I need that!
So I had to do a set change, which added a bunch of time. I didn't prime it quite all the way because I knew if I did, I'd be really low by the time I got there (my body is really weird and I'm pretty impatient).
I finally got to the lab and tested at 96 before they drew me. Woohoo. I bring coffee with me in a travel mug so I can chug it as soon as they let me out of the pen. No, really, this is for the safety of the other patients. Of course, today I also spilled coffee on myself.
Now I just need to upload my data so I can print out the reports for my endo. I have never used a paper log.
