Took my daughter to an aquatic center, thinking I’d only just wade in, so I wore my pump and Dexcom Seven+ in the bra area of my suit. We’d been to other pools several times this summer, and this set-up worked OK so far.
The unintentional soaking left my Dexcom Seven+ receiver giving me the “out of range” symbol for the rest of the day, even though it was always within 5 feet of the sensor on my thigh. And check out the obvious-looking water-leakage line in this next picture.
So, even though I’d been stretching out my remaining Dexcom Seven+ supplies for as long as I could before switching over, this meant I had to break open the box of my new Dexcom G4 and start learning to use it. So, here goes!!!
(I like to keep it in my pocket, and wanted some sort of protective cover regardless, so I had already bought this sassy yellow neoprene one from Tallygear.com a few weeks ago.)
