Sharps Overflow

Five years ago, when we used syringes to inject Dylan with insulin three times a day, we would fill a sharps container with used needles and lancets within a few weeks. Now that he's on a pump, the only thing going in the sharps container (other than lancets) is the needle used to insert the cannula of his infusion set. And since we change the sets every three days, it takes about a year to fill up the sharps container.

Well, maybe not quite a year...I let this one get a little fuller than it's supposed to be.

Time to swap this baby for an empty one!
