I think I know why Tom got so sick last week now. Yesterday his pump started scrolling and we couldn't enter any details into it. I also think that the insulin stopped being delivered because by morning tea time his sugar was up at 29.6 (522). When I couldn't enter any details I got on the phone to medtronic straight away. They promised me that we would get a new pump by 8.00pm last night.
I then rang Tom's endocrine team at the WCH and we worked out a plan for management until the pump arrived.
At lunch time I got another call from medtronic and they told me the pump would not be here till today because we were too far from Adelaide. The girl thought that we were close enough to Adelaide to have a delivery that night but it wasn't.
It took till tea time last night to get Tom's sugars into range but he had excellent levels overnight and has woken up this morning at 5.3. (95)
The pump should be here by 10.30 and I will get help from Adelaide in programing it as soon as it arrives. We should be able to attach it straight away.
