Sensor change

I changed my sensor last night, and there was a small bruise and some crusty blood when I pulled it out. (Explains why it took a full 15 hours to get the initial reading when I put it in I guess.) But, after that Diabetic News Hound article about dexcom sensors leaving metal in the skin, I was POSITIVE the scabs were metal shards and kept examining them. I'm a nutcase who needs to relax! I think having D has made me into a hypochondriac! (;

great- I hadn't heard about the metal shards... mine usually has crusty blood on it when I pull it out.....
