We had an appointment with our CDE scheduled for this week so we will use it as a cgm training session. Hopefully after that appointment (today), we will be "up and sensing"

Hurry up and wait
Our Dexcom CGM was actually here when we got home on Friday evening. I could barely wait to rip the box open and hook it up to Bryce. Knowing I had to read the instructions first, I held back. After the boys were in bed, we opened up our new life-saving device and looked at what we had to work with. While I am so excited to see Bryce's numbers charted out and know if he is dropping fast, holding steady, or climbing, and have alarms tell me if he is low or high, I am really nervous about putting in the sensors. The sensor inserter looks like a torture device. Plus you only get 4 in a box (one for each week in the month) so what happens if I do it wrong?
