I’ve been stuck in many situations where I needed to head home unexpectedly (from work, or wherever I happen to be) because I needed to change my pump site – either I ran out of insulin, or my site was pulled, or it hurt, etc. I always kick myself for not being better prepared and carrying spare supplies with me, so this is something I’m working on improving. I asked for suggestions on what my other friends in the DOC use, and Melissa Hawkins suggested a Vera Bradley cosmetic bag- I ordered one and everything fits perfectly in it! I have the following items in it -
IV prep pad
IV 3000 Infusion set tape
The one thing I need to add to it is extra AAA batteries.. but I’ll do that when I get home tonight
Aren’t you proud of me, Karen?
