670G: a poem

The dust has settled.

Emotions have leveled.

Medtronic 670G,

You are now a part of me.

Over 4 months we’ve been together,

Your storms I’ve learned to weather.

To use your sensor I did try,

But frustrations piled high.

So many alarms I would hear,

The constant buzzing in my ear.

Less than a week and sensors would fail,

Every time, I let out a disappointed wail.

Eventually I learned some tricks,

Sleepless nights they worked to fix.

Auto mode is not perfection,

Blood sugars in both directions.

But at the endo there was good news,

A half point down my A1c did lose.

While sometimes I find myself in a bit of a slump,

In the end I’m so thankful for this insulin pump.
