Just visited my Endo's office and I have been approved for the OmniPod and a Dexcom 7 plus! Right now I am at 6+ shots per day and 8 - 10 finger sticks, reducing these numbers are only one positive. My schedule changes a lot and I work with new people all the time, sometimes it is very difficult to keep up with my diabetes management. I can only imagine how this will help. I was surprised when the nurse started talking to me about being approved. This was my first time seeing this nurse (my old one moved offices). I had heard my new nurse with a bit of a hard a_ _ and followed strict guidelines, I figured this visit I'd get chewed out a little for something! But no she thought I was doing great and gave the ok to move ahead. Only a couple hours after my appointment the Dexcom rep contacted me, WOW that was fast! I have all my forms filled out and sent back so that part of the process has begun. I'm hoping the 3 - 4 week window stands, I would love to be hooked up before summer.
I feel great about taking more control and improving my health. I have also increased my exercising and stopped drinking! I know there will be ups and downs with the new systems but I am excited to start something new.
Guess now I will have to join a few groups.
