We have been without a Dexcom for over three weeks and just got it going again yesterday: we lost all of our Dexcom related electronics in our kayak camping trip 3 weeks ago, and it took up that long to get the tool chain running again.
The last three weeks have been a bit overwhelming. My son has multiple hours of sports practices every day, every day at a different time, including 7-9pm practices twice a week. These, in particular, are really difficult to deal with without a CGM: we often stay up until 5:00am due to the risk post exercise lows, and, sometimes, due to actual post exercise lows. So we both feel rather exhausted, and getting our Dexcom back is a true relief – being able to have alarms turning on instead of having to stay up makes a huge difference.
Of course, this would happen at a time when other work is particularly demanding. I am in such deep sleep deficit that I am worried about not waking up when I need to. This summer is quite hard on us.
