Timing is everything
Last Saturday morning, I dipped into my reserves of Silhouette sets and stuck one in my right hip, because I would be playing hockey in a few hours and didn’t think a metal Sure-T needle1 would be particularly comfortable. I also stuck a CGM sensor in my left hip because my shoulder pads would have surely abused it on my arm.
So, on Wednesday night, faced with a Low Reservoir alert and an itchy midsection, I decided it was time to change both2. (It’s rare that they both get changed on the same schedule, by the way!)
But on Saturday, I’ll be going to my sister-in-law’s house for her baby-shower/barbecue/pool party, and I’m not particularly keen on having my D-stuff visible when I’m wearing nothing but swim trunks. My sister-in-law is a doctor, as are most of her friends who will be there, so I’m sure many who see it would understand, but I’m still more comfortable keeping them private.
