I looked down at my site and realized the outside of the site (the white material part) was soaking wet. Instant realization that my site is leaking and it needed to be pulled out, even though I just put it in. The cannula was bent and leaking into the material rather than into my stomach. Such an annoying feeling having to rip out a brand new site and put in a new one plus deal with a high blood sugar.
I like to think that it wasn't my fault for putting the site in wrong, but then again it's not an easy thought to think the site failed to do its job. Thankfully, the smell of insulin is a strong one and I was able to recognize that something was up with the site and in turn I needed to take care of a high blood sugar.
