What do you call a one-month anniversary? A monthiversary? Mensaversary?
I ask because a couple of days ago I had the pleasure of celebrating a very special one-month anniversary– that of my CGM sensor. That’s right; I had hit a new sensor-longevity record: that sucker worked for a solid month. August 22nd to the day it died, September 22nd.
I didn’t make it easy on the little guy, either. That sensor went rock climbing with me. Flew in a plane. Swam. And I suppose I took at least sixty showers.
I consider this a victory. For Medtronic manufacturing, for 3M Tegaderm tape, and for my non-biofouled insertion site.
Take that, diabetes.
