can you believe

  • that college students would steal a bag from the cafeteria and after looking inside to find that it contains medical equipment with a phone number to call if found - that they didn't at least leave it in a place to be "found" by someone else?

    Grant forgot it in the cafeteria for about 2 hours until he realized it.  It contained his wallet which did have quite a bit of cash in it and my credit card (with his name on it) and his bank card.  It also contained everything he carries on a daily basis for d, meter with a sticker indicating it is a medical device.  Glucogon, a few syringes, extra strips, candy, etc.

    He has backup for everything in his dorm, but it's still a pain to lose all that stuff.  I can't believe they didn't at least take the cash and give it to someone saying they found it in the restroom or some other public space.  On the bright side, he didn't have several items in it that he sometimes keeps in it such as his phone, ipod, and dexcom receiver.

    Grrrr....

    That's probably not a bad idea.  Then at least it could have been recovered after it was discarded.  How much are those things?  I've seen them on Indigogo, but haven't shopped them.

  • Looks like about $25 or discount with multiple amounts. Amazon has them...listed as tile app, I think

  • I am sad to say I am not surprised.  That really stinks.  Good thing he didn't have the other electronics in it.

    I wish there were, Kris.  Unfortunately, the bottom pretty much fell out as far as his d care.  So much for a college freshman to deal with.  Much more challenging classes, tight quarters, roommates, making new friends, balancing it all, etc, etc.  He didn't want to think about d, so he pretty much didn't.

    The good news is that he now knows this can't continue.  He moved back home for the summer last weekend and is determined to get his d back on track.  He is using the dexcom which he hadn't been.  It is difficult for him to insert them in the back of his arm himself.  His girlfriend will be going to the same college next year, so I will teach her how to insert them for him.  That should also help.
