Remember back a few months ago when Elise decided she no longer wanted to wear the Dexcom? I was beside myself with worry... we had just started pumping and were so used to the constant stream of numbers.
Well, a couple of days ago, Elise started bugging me to wear it again. When asked why, she said, "so you won't have to check my blood sugar if I'm not eating... you can just check my monitor!"
I managed to distract her for a couple of days, but she started asking again. Today, she just wouldn't take no for an answer. So I dusted off the dex, and put my rusty insertion skills to the test. The result:
One happy girl! I'm still scratching my head about this, but I've always said it's HER body and she can decide what she does and doesn't want to wear.
So, we're dex-ing again! I am so interested to see how long it lasts!
***I just want to add that I have nothing against the dex. In fact, I love it. It helped us so much when Elise was on MDI and when she started pumping. I just got used to not being at its beck and call. I loved seeing her bare, rash-free skin. It made me happy not to see her lugging the receiver around. We got to a point where we felt that her settings were great, and she was feeling her lows, so the dex wasn't necessary anymore. Just wanted to make sure we're clear that I have no bad feelings towards the dexcom.
