Tough diabetes gear

Last night I'd made the second site change of the day, this time nesting the set on my left thigh. In this process, I'd just binned the new tubing as I already had a new and insulin-filled tubing from the site change I did in the morning. Getting ready for bed, I heard a cracking sound when I pulled up my Pj bottoms. The source of said cracking sound is visible in the picture: One site of the tubing connection had snapped off.

I was suprised though, to find that the set still works - the tubing still sticks properly to the set and it's still possible to disconnect with no issues. I guess our diabetes gear is just as tough as we're stubborn in exchanging them :-)
