This hasn’t been the best week for Arden with her pump, she has experienced three static electricity malfunctions. Some times if there is enough static in the air the pod can deactivate (it’s an infrequent occurrence). In the last seven days that has happened at a dinner, the Franklin Institute and during Arden’s yoga class. When said bed messing occurs the pump is rendered useless and must be changed immediately so that Arden’s insulin supply can be reestablished. No doubt this sucks but still I must say that it’s a small price to pay for the positives that the OmniPod brings to our lives, things certainly could be worse. It’s all perspective and attitude.
