More diabetes sh!t?

So I was changing out my omnipod like normal but as I was pulling her adhesive o I noticed an area was an orangish red? And when I pulled the rest off, the cannula was bloody and the area the cannula pierces was red and a bit swollen.

    This simply indicates that when you were inserting the OmniPod sensor that you hit a blood vessel, my friend.  There's nothing to worry about as the blood vessel will be repaired by your body's own macrophages ... these are components of your white blood cells.

    The redness that you see, and the swelling WILL go down to their 'normal' appearance as your body repairs itself.

    Be well, my young friend.
