Monday morning I had serious blood sugar drop. I hadn't passed out, but DH needed to give me quite a bit of glucose to get me back to lucidity. Once I had my faculties about me I tested my blood sugar with his assistance. I use a small lancing device to wingadingdingy my finger and draw blood. It's about the size of a flash drive. After I tested, DH took the lancing device and monitor and (I had assumed) put them back where I keep them. He then went to work since DS was home and my parents were coming over.
Later, when I had to test again, I couldn't find the lancing device. My parents, DS and I tore the house up looking for it, to no avail. I called DH to see if he had placed it somewhere else. Nope, he hadn't seen it since that morning.
Well, now I'm getting anxious because I have to test to see how much insulin to take. When I (admittedly) scolded DH for misplacing the device he said "Well, I'm sorry, but you can always stick yourself with a pin to get blood drawn". I was livid.
It wasn't like he misplaced a pen or a flashlight. He misplaced a vital piece of my medical equipment. I had to go out and purchase a new one which meant spending money (although a small amount, about $15.00) that I didn't need to spend if he had only placed the device where it belonged.
I know he didn't do it on purpose, but he thinks I overreacted because he did apologize. I did tell him that "I'm sorry, but...." really isn't an apology. What do you think, oh wise ehellions.
