Yesterday his Dexcom sensor decided to give up on Day 10. Yes, this is the recommended usage period, but we have been lucky with the last two and they have lasted 20+ days.
Me being a last-minute Larry only ordered his sensors a day previous and we had no spares in the house. WOW, how quickly do you become dependent on the technology? I felt totally naked not being able to see his numbers remotely and even pre-school said they felt like they couldn’t let him out of their sight all day.
A generous person from the Type 1 Community kindly let us have a sensor whilst we are waiting for ours to be delivered. They were such a lifesaver and shows how the community tries to look after one another when favours are needed.
