In other news, I ran out of lancets (the little sticks used to collect the blood for testing) for my glucometer a few days ago. Mom called several local pharmacies to get replacements and, after no success, decided to buy a new glucometer that was more standard. Paul Burton picked up the machine on his way home from work and I decided to get it ready for Mom. Little did I know how easy the machine would be use! By the time I had gone through all the “first time use” directions, I had tested my own blood sugar…including pricking my finger! Mom was pleasantly surprised and happy to give up the job. I was so excited about being able to do this myself that Mom jokingly cautioned me not to be checking it every hour. No chance of that!
