Day Four, or should that be day one? Insulin!
That's it, no more dry runs and fiddling without consequence, the pump is now running for real with insulin.
More training today, a fair bit to take in, but I think I got it all. I was warned by various people that my levels would likely be a bit wayward. Well, they were right, it's been a day of literal highs and lows, but nothing too bad.
Filling the cartridge from a vial was a bit like the old days when the drill was a vial of insulin and syringes. It was strangely comforting doing something I hadn't done for years, but at the same time excitingly new. Some more training and tweaking tomorrow. If all goes well, I may venture out on the bike tomorrow evening.
