I'm A Lobster.

The U.S. Navy Blue Angels performed an air show here yesterday, and it was quite a sight to see.

And speaking of a "sight to see", check out my epic sunburn. 

A smart person would have worn sunscreen.
I was not one of those smart people.

This was my first real sunburn of the summer (I can still call mid-September "summer", right?), so I don't quite remember how sunburns affect my numbers. I seem to remember that I tend to run higher, but my Dexcom graph post-air show has been a complete nosedive (flying pun totally intended). I'm at a loss for how to temp basal my way through this one.

I'll just be over here, desperately clutching my aloe vera gel and trying not to move around too much, in case anyone needs me.


  1. All of a sudden I am thinking of Phoebe from Friends. "He's her lobster!"

    Good luck with the aloe and the numbers!

  2. Lobsters. And jet airplanes. That's a set of concepts with a lot in common. :)

    Happy healing. :)

  3. Ouch! That looks painful ... hopefully, enough places where you can place infusion sets aren't completely sunburned! (LOL)

  4. sweet pics dude! though i must admit the ones with smoke in the background are mildly unsettling!

    and i hope your burn doesn't bug you too much. youch!

  5. Pete would totally love that!! Ummm, the air show, not the sunburn. :P Hope your blood sugars are staying happy and that you are feeling much much less fried and ouchy soon! {{{{HUGS}}}}

  6. Ouch. Hope you are feeling better soon.
