My husband left for a business trip today. I worry about being by myself for a few nights, especially since hypoglycemia unawareness is an issue for me. No problem, though – I have my trusted dexcom to keep me safe! Or so I thought until I got home from work and checked out my receiver.
Of course this happens on the day I need you the most! The thing is spitting out the dreaded ???’s. And this one has been in for 24 hours, so I really expected more from it and this point. So I’ve shut it down restarted it, and am awaiting the night time calibration wake up call that is coming my way.
I have heard others chatting about the series of bad sensors they’ve gotten from dexcom recently. I seem to be in a similar pattern. Mine have been stubborn, usually a few restarts and I can get them to start throwing out accurate #’s, but why the frustration with the first few days? I am looking forward to exhausting this supply and getting a new 3 month shipment.
Here’s hoping for a good night’s sleep…
