Yesterday I re-read the instructions for about the 100th time and the light came on suddenly. I was looking for black and white patches, but the patches are all the same. It's the electrodes that lead from the monitor to attach to the patches that are black and white. Well I'll be!!!
Now I'm beeping away, as it records automatically except there is one space left that I can do a manual reading. I sent the results to the lab this morning - setting the phone carefully so the speaker matches up to the monitor in the precise spot. After the sending is complete, I pick up the phone and speak to the tech, who makes sure the transmission was ok, and then I can reset the monitor. When I put the phone to my ear I thought the tech on the other end sounded very far away, quite unlike when I called in the first place. When I hung up the phone I realized I was holding it upside down and talking into the wrong place. I'm a person who can't even use an iPod, and they think they are going to get good results by giving me this techie device?
I'm going to wear the monitor when I visit the dentist's office today, and as I wrote to Pidge of the Frugal Travelers, I hope I annoy everyone with the intermittent beeping!
JUST THINK OF WARM SUNNY DAYS AND SPRING FLOWERS AL:))
