Its an insulin pump. Dh has type 1 diabetes
Let me start by saying.. I have a weak stomach.
IVs, or anything resembling them.. they make me so sick feeling.. I get dizzy and feel like I'm going to puke.
My husband has been on his pump for a while. Between his sugar being better regulated, and me using things like olive oil in cooking- he's gained back the needed weight. He has to put the pump in fat- and he was getting so skinny that the only place left was his butt.
Since I cant handle doing that- I helped him gain a few pounds so he has a tiny amount of fat on his tummy.
This morning, he decided to hook up the pump to his butt cheek- which I didn't even know he could do alone. Fine. UNTIL the damn thing got clogged with blood. He couldn't see- so DURING BREAKFAST he pulled down his shorts and had me look.
I did. I saw the blood. I described where it was. Then... I nearly threw up and I got so dizzy I had to lay down.. I can't finish my breakfast. Then he says "sorry I asked"
Now I feel like a jerk for something I can't help. Blah.
