We are all bleary-eyed and sleep deprived and it’s amazing that we somehow manage to get through the day remembering what we are supposed to do and when.
I did a couple of absent-minded things recently that made me just sit back and laugh.
Morning is always a rush. Most weekdays my husband gets the kids their breakfasts while I take a long, hot shower to try to wake myself up and get motivated to start the day.
On one particular morning I was making a gourmet breakfast for the kiddos.
Instead of punching 6-0 into the microwave for R’s bowl of oatmeal, I pushed 1-1-3. Q’s pre-breakfast blood sugar!
Too many numbers to keep track of at once between blood sugars, carb counts, and microwave times.
Another day Q and I sat down together for lunch while my husband and son were out seeing a movie. I had pre-bolused for the bulk of her meal, but needed to give insulin for the remaining carbs she consumed.
Her OmniPod case and my iPhone were both on the table next to me. I reached for my phone and tried to give her a bolus!
You would think that I would realize that no matter how many times I try, that I cannot give a bolus with my iPhone.
But wait, it gets funnier.
Since I had my iPhone in hand I tweeted what I had just done.
But what was even funnier was that when I hit send I reached my hand out to Q and held my phone by her side waiting for the beep that signifies that the pod heard her PDM and is giving a bolus.
I started laughing out loud to myself.
I’m still laughing about it half an hour later.
iPhone and OmniPod integration cannot come soon enough…though now I have to wonder if that’s such a good idea!
What absent-minded things have you done?
