Upon receiving the new pump and meter (they didn’t have any pink replacement pumps in stock so I had to settle for a whole new kit. RATS!) I opened the package up and proceeded to program all of Jenna’s settings into the new pump. Then I installed the battery in the new meter, bringing it to life in all it’s high-def colour contrasted glory! I was so jazzed about this new spiffy meter that I had to subject Jenna to a blood sugar check right away. When the reading appeared, I ran like the wind to get my camera.
Check out the very first blood sugar reading taken with her new meter:
|Jenna couldn’t care less what her blood sugar reading is. She just wants|
to make sure her pump skin fits on the new pump. Priorities, you know.
Now check out the picture of the meter in the manual:
I’m going to take it as a good omen that Jenna’s very first blood sugar reading on her new meter was a picture-perfect 5.8 mmol/L and matched the illustration in the manual. What are the odds?
Here’s another picture of Jenna awaiting her favourite breakfast treat - a blueberry banana smoothie. You can try the recipe here. They are quite tasty - a good choice for breakfast if a little physical activity is on the morning’s agenda:
|This angelic smile is actually Jenna trying to be patient|
with my incessant picture taking. She wants to
dive into a smoothie!
