Back It Up.
(Title sounds more like a rappy-type song than I had intended, but I promise, this is safe for work.)
It's 9 am - do you know what your pump settings are?
I'm diligent about backing up my laptop and all of the silly content therein, and I religiously take the little, red external hard drive and make sure my computers are backed up.
But I'm far less fastidious about backing up other important things in my life, like my insulin pump settings. While I never anticipate an insulin pump malfunction (stealing verbiage from the airline flight attendants who make me squirm while they explain the oxygen masks on planes), in the event that my pump craps out, I'd be lost as to guesstimating what my insulin settings are. I know I have some fluctuations in my basal rates throughout the day, but if asked to recall those settings on a whim, I'm lost.
So this morning, while I backed up my computer, I also took quick note of my insulin pump settings. They're now logged as a note in my phone, along with my MDI preferences, as I never remember how much Levemir I take and when during those pump vacations. (I'm safe now, unless I lose my phone, which is something I never back up, which now that I've typed this, I'm certain to drop my phone into a storm drain, where an alligator will make international calls until I'm broke. Stupid alligators in the sewers.)
