into the unknown

Due to this stellar economy, my husband was laid off last week. Luckily we are waiting on an offer from another company so this bout of unemployment should be short lived. This new company does not offer medical until after one full month of employment (this would mean March). Normally this would be no big deal but with a child with diabetes, it is HUGE!! He talked to his ex-company and they are allowing us to continue our medical benefits through till the end of February. Regardless, we stocked up on all our D supplies while we could apply it to our FSA. I filled all our prescriptions, ordered all our pump and Dexcom supplies. Now I guess we hold on and see what happens.

  3. Denise . . . . praying for you and your family. I am glad to hear you were able to purchase some supplies ahead to stock up. Make sure to let us all know if you run too low before the new insurance kicks in. No one understands the anxiety of not enough d-supplies like us ;)

  5. I am in the middle of changing our policy. I was going to do it last year, but we would have been one month uninsured. After three nights of NO SLEEP worring about it, we decided to wait to do it this year. Hopefully it will be done quickly enough for us not to have a lapse. Good luck on the offer!
