We've had some good times together over the past few years since we first fell in love. We've swam together in the sea, danced under the stars on the ocean while cruising the Caribbean, we've even had some intimate moments in the boudoir.
Ohhh, how different it will be not to have you by my side anymore. Your blue shining skin, your subtle way of winking at me and reminding me that life with diabetes became even better when you came into my life back in April 2008. It's now ended. Sob.
I feel that you've been cheating on me with the scatches that I have found on your body, and the late nights you've been spending away from me. Sob. It is best to let go, before my mind makes up more stories that may or may not be true.
Tendré buenas memorias mi querido but I know I will survive!
Seriously though, I am having sad thoughts of letting my Animas pump go back to the factory, to be examined to see why there was water inflitration in the battery compartment. Last week, while on holidays in the Caribbean, I had to do a battery change (lucked in that infusion was being changed at same time - whoo! whoo!). As I started to unscrew the battery cap, gunky yucky stuff came out as I took the battery out. Mike didn't think the battery was leaking, but it was wierd nevertheless. We quickly cleaned out the battery reservoir, inserted in a new battery (lithium - only the best for my Antonio), and life continued with no problems.
I contacted Animas today just to ask about what had happened, along with asking about the scratches on my pump screen (thanks Dave for that suggestion), as well as the paint work that was coming off the pump compartment. Within 1/2 an hour of talking to a technician, I was told to keep the loaner pump that I was about to send back (if I didn't - I would be getting a hefty charge of $7K).
So, while I am pleased that I have a new pump, and it's lime green which is appropriate for me seeing as I was born in England and that I do enjoy limes to get my Vitamin C, I feel abit sad.
For now, the pump is unnamed, just callling it Limey for now, until either I come up with something, or someone sends some suggestions to me! Adieu Antonio, it's been a good few years with you, and my introduction to the world of pumping!
