Dexing it....

Last Spring our endo approved a CGM for Emerson.  After thinking about it, we were hesitant to add another device to her body so we kept putting it off.  But when the new Dex G4 was approved, we knew we had to do it...and since it came in pink Emerson was agreeable.  The process of getting it was much smoother than obtaining our pump.  There was absolutely no argument from the insurance company, and we received our new Dex right away. 

We finally met with our nurse this week to learn all about it and to go live with it.  Emerson didn't feel a thing when it was inserted, and we were very relieved there was no pain.  (Emerson wouldn't even put her shirt on as we left the doctor's office...she left her arms bare for the world to see her devices.)  Since she has only been wearing it a few days (and this is our first experience with a CGM), we don't have much to say about it other than we all LOVE it so far.  Hopefully, we can give our thoughts on it once we get our feet wet.  In the meantime, if you have any tips or tricks to share on Dexing, please send them our way.  We would love to hear from you!
