And the other new thing I have been waiting for for eight months...
*INSERT SUSPENSE HERE*
I'm on a trial for a CGM!
I'm only on the Seven Plus because I don't think the under 18 crowd can use the G4 yet, but I'm still really happy. I've already done this to my old Vera Bradley ID holder. (It's in Sittin' in a Tree, in case you wanted to know.) I started off at the wonderful blood sugar of 391, and since I had to put in two blood sugars, I tested again. It said 402 and I put that into the CGM. I then realized that you can't put in blood sugars over 400 after looking in the manual, so I tested again and put in a blood sugar of 335.
|If we don't return it, we have to pay $1000. Needless to say, no one hasn't returned it.|
My mom has to go to the endocrinologist next week to drop off the transmitter and sensor so my endo can analyze the data and then I will go to the endo on November 26, so my endocrinologist can tell us what the data says, fix my pump settings according to the data, and have a prescription written for my own Dexcom.
Moral of Story: Since I know have to robotic parts, I'm half borg, or to quote my mother:
My T1D kiddo is officially a borg. Besides the insulin pump she now has a #CGM.
