In my pharmacy you can see the fridge from the counter. It has a board attached that has dates, times and what I think are temps. I don't know if that is standard practice or not. Doesn't get pass that it might be unrefrigerated during transport.

I don't heat it that much Patti - just hold the vial in my hand (out of the box, till I get into another room wherever I'm planning to do the deed)  and then just put it down on a flat surface and abandon it for a bit till I remember and do it!

I only warm it that much due to some advice I received either here or elsewhere as several people said you got less bubbles doing it that way.  It does help from that point of view.

Haven't changed the pump.  Yesterday we had the 2nd Half of the Parmigiana dish.  BG before eating 7.7 (due to a couple of glasses of white wine).  1 hr 35 later 5.3, 2hrs 15 later 4.4, 4 hrs later 10.7.  It was all that blooming cheese!
