While the boys were at Camp Harlow, we got the call that insurance approved our CGM and will cover it at 90% :D Our Dexcom would arrive after we got back. Woohoo!!! Yippee! Happy Day!

Dexcom-take me off this roller coaster!
We have been on a roller coaster ride of bg numbers. Bryce will go sky high after breakfast only to crash before lunch. He has huge rebound highs after treating a low (we treat with less than 15g and he gets bolused for his snack after) We have had such a hard time finding any patterns. His a1c was getting higher and we were getting more frustrated. We were testing so much and each time it was a mystery as to what his bg would be (high? low? who knows?!!) So we started looking into getting a CGM (continuous glucose monitor) Seeing a "movie" of his bg levels instead of "pictures" should be so helpful and hopefully will allow us to make changes to Bryce's pump settings so he will be in range more often.
