Stuck out in the rain

Umbrella – Free Clip Art at
This area is having a lot of rain lately. But when I went to pick up my daughter from camp on a very sunny day, I didn’t think to bring an umbrella. Of course, by the time I arrived, the rain was coming down in buckets. If I didn’t have an insulin pump I would have ran out of the car and got her. But, with the pump (Paradigm 715), I was a little nervous. I already broke a pump a couple of months ago in a hot tub incident…I didn’t want to break another one.

Luckily I happened to have a ziplock sandwich bag that I could put the pump in. I got soaked to the skin, but my pump stayed dry and didn’t break.

Do you have any stories of things you did to save diabetes supplies?
