Sun’s out, pump’s out.

99.987% of the time that I change my insulin pump, I deal with stubborn high blood sugars for a few hours afterwards no matter what I do.  It frustrates the heck out of me, but in some ways I don’t blame my body.  I’m sure its internal dialogue goes something like this with every new poke and prod: Why the efffff does this girl hate me so much?!!!  More to come on pump site changes later, but my simplified theory for the time being is that there is a learning curve where the body adjusts to the new site.  Whatever, it still doesn’t make it any easier to endure…

Anyway, I woke up this morning around 5:00 am to see that my BG had dropped to 180 after being in the 250s post-pump change.  Progress, but not good enough considering I wanted oatmeal for breakfast.  My bladder wasn’t happy, either.  As I dragged myself out of bed to get to the bathroom and to take a mini-correction dose of insulin, the light from the window attracted my eye.  Diabetes generally has horrible timing, but in terms of catching the sunrise, it was right on point this morning…
