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.
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!
