My pump decided it wanted a 'holiday' the other evening just as hubby and I sat down to a hot meal. Never mind we've had workmen here at the house replacing windows because of the age of our home. When there is a whole bunch of confusion from hammering, drilling, sawing etc. there is no hope of cooking from scratch. After the workmen left for the day, hubby and I reheated our food and sat down to eat. That is when Mr. Pump decided to go on holiday. I took out the pump to do my bolus and the onscreen message said: "pump has malfunctioned and can no longer deliver insulin", call customer service immediately!!!
So, I called customer service and after a rather lengthy wait, someone answered the telephone and we began the 'resetting' process. Never had to do that before so had no idea what to expect. The pump didn't accept the process the first time but did accept the second time we tried. In the meantime, hubby enjoyed his hot plate of food whilst mine got cold. Yeah.....I was pissed at the pump, but glad it finally decided to continue working. Have no idea how long I was without insulin as the atmosphere here during the afternoon prior was so noisy I would not have heard the alarms anyway. Looking forward to the workmen being finished.
