I was getting undressed for bed and noticed my pump site was out! Yikes! I cant believe I didn't notice it. I was wearing a pair of sweat type shorts that are way too big for me (but so comfy) and it was tangled up and stuck to them. The shorts are so big I didnt notice the bit of the wet spot. No idea how long it was out but my blood sugar was 258 when I checked it :( So...I put in another site...and blood popped up into the set! Thats never happened before either. I was scared to use it just in case....so I put in yet another site and finally gave myself a bolus. Definitely a weird pump day for me and I went through 3 site sets :( ( I can just hear the sounds of a cash register in my head) *sigh*

I have never worried about any blood showing up in the infusion. You are not going to hit anything that has a large enough blood supply to effect the way it works.
