that’s because I just mentioned the other day how reliable my 530 pump has been. Sigh. I went to clean it this morning and while doing so, I noticed that half of the lip that retains the o-ring for the reservoir chamber was missing. The o-ring has nothing to hold it in. I can still install a reservoir, but dust and grit will be able to enter the chamber, which isn’t going to be good for the drive mechanism. Sigh., My endo retired after our last visit and am still trying to get hooked up with a new endo. I’ve put in calls to the Tandem rep early this morning and next up is seeing if ANYONE in my retired-endo’s office can do an Rx for a Tandem pump. If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
oh, and I’ve placed 3 small pieces of duct tape over the reservoir to help keep out dirt and to reduce the possibility of the reservoir coming loose. Duct tape fixes everything!
