I never thought I would utter (or type, as it were) these words again, but we are about to be Dex-ing once again!
It all started when I was reading about the release of the brand-spankin' new Dexcom G4. Elise happened to be looking over my shoulder and asked what I was looking at. When I told her it was a brand new Dexcom, her eyes got very wide and she exclaimed,
"You mean it's PINK now???"
Oh you devious little marketing rascals of Dexcom... Let me just interject that you missed the boat by not offering one in camouflage. You missed that oh-so-important demographic of boys, ages 2 - whenever-camo-stops-being-cool.
Anyway, when I confirmed that, yes Elise... there IS a pink Dexcom, she decided she wanted to wear a CGM again because, "sometimes it helps to know where my blood sugars are going!"
After chatting with our insurance and our supply company, we found out that it would be covered at 100%. What-the-what??? Free Dex? Giddyup!
Or course, what this really means is we've just already paid an obscene amount out-of-pocket for all the other medical stuff, but I'm going to pretend I don't know that. FREE DEX!
So we're about to fire that baby up. Today will be a pod change/sensor insertion day. Awesome.
At least SHE'S happy about it... for now.
