|See how the used test strips are/were housed in a dish?|
"Oh...yea...If ya get some sort of error message when checking Joe ... just grab another strip and re-test....and if that one errors-out...just grab another strip...and so-on...til you get a number." ~ Me to Dave
A few nights ago...and btw, I am surprised this hasn't happened to me before during my 7 years as an exogenous pancreas.
During the 2am check, while trying to coax out a strip from a fresh (fresh - meaning full and hard to manipulate out a strip) freestyle vial~vesicle~container~thingy, I dumped out all 47 or so strips onto Joe's chest of drawers. Unfortunately, they spewed out all willy-nilly-like all over the place and there were some old used test strips spritzled into the mix. I'm a slob night time pancreas, so it seems.
So, our test strip vial now has "old-dirtys" mixed in with "new-cleans". Nice.
A day~in~the~life of needing to clean up my night-time act. I'm sure you are better about throwing away your used night strips.
