I'm OK!

I got my urine test results back yesterday. My kidneys are 100% fine. All tests were normal. I am so relieved. As much as I was trying not to worry about it, I still thought about it too much. I'm glad it's done with.
I listened to my intuition today, and it was right. I put a new site in this morning. I felt like I should leave the old site in, just in case. I do not normally do that. The site usually itches enough that I want to get rid of it. It was a good thing I left it in, because just a few hours later (while away from home) I had a blocked tubing alert. I just had to disconnect from the new site and connect to the old. I felt a little like a robot that needed to plug in, but it saved me a whole lot of stress and extra work! I might have to do that a little more often.
Life is once again busy, busy, busy! I have one more week of class until exams, and then Christmas break! I'm really for a little R&R. There are so many things that come with the end of the semester, that I don't know how often I'll be updating. I'll try and keep reading though! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Hi Jen,
Thanks for checking out my blog. Very happy that your test results were fine! You feel like my soul mate b/c of you loving books. I sincerely could not live without them - check out mu book list in my profile. Also I truly believe it is amazing how often our intuition proves trustworthy;we must remember to listen to it.

Glad to hear everything came back good!

I've sometimes left my old site in, especially after a large bolus. More because I was worried there would be a little bit of leaking than as a back up.

But - those times I've also felt comforted by the fact that if I did have a problem with the new site I could easily connect to the old.

Great minds think alike!

Great news. I don't think I'll ever find the secret to staying calm while waiting for test results - so annoying, because the fear takes a lot of energy.
