Pumpless

Cassie's pump broke last night at about 3 am. We kept getting a System Fault error when we tried to load in a new insulin cartridge. We tried and tried to reboot the system, change out the batteries and mutter incoherent incantations to try to get the thing to work. But to no avail.

When the Cozmo nurse called us back she had some really good advice: don't use it. Even if we could resuscitate it. What if it wasn't just the loading mechanism that was busted? What if it messed up delivery and gave too much insulin? Although she was bleary eyed and cranky, the nurse gave us wise counsel.

So now we're back on shots and her old minimed until we get a replacement.
