Well, I did an infusion change on the fly in my car this past Sunday (okay - it wasn't on the "fly" - we did stop over as Salvador was screaming to fill him up with more "food"). I knew it had to be done eventually that day, so I was a smart cookie, and brought along the necessary bit's 'n bobs that are required to do this (I'm very bad sometimes, that I don't bring a spare infusion set, insulin with me, for those "what if's"). I am getting better with age in remembering to do what I preach!
I could have changed the infusion set in the loo at the Tim Horton's we stopped off at on our way home after checking out how Jenna's Journey is fairing during the winter months - but I have this thing about bathrooms and how clean they are (mine isn't much better ). I tend to change my infusion set at home in the kitchen, where there is lots of sunlight - to bang out the bubbles in the insulin cartridge, along with splashes of grease on the counter from an earlier fry up (only kidding - sort of - I'm not one of your most uber fanatical clean gals - I do my best - as there is more to life then chasing dust bunnies around the house).
So, you will find at this link a few pictures of how I did the change - complete with revealing my sexy muffin top. I actually did have some better shots of my tummy after putting the infusion set in - but sadly - when transferring the pictures onto my hard drive - they went missing in action. Lost in space time continuum - what more can I say - I fail miserably as a PC user.
In the end, due to the confined space in the car (wondering how it would have gone in my Smart CDI), the pictures that got lost, showed me putting the infusion set standing up outside the car. I just couldn't do it sitting hunched over in the car seat.
So, have any of you done an infusion change or needle injection in an awkward place? Would love to hear your stories!
