I hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday and Santa was able to fill your stockings with all your goodies. I also hope those goodies didn't wreak havoc on your blood sugars like it did mine :(
I didn't have the best self control the last few days with all the good food and treats! I am going to need to get back in "normal" eating order after cookies and rolls and more rolls and did I mention cookies? You can't be perfect all the time. You need to be able to indulge every once in awhile, right? I had to correct some pretty high, highs that I am not proud of but, back to healthy eating!
Speaking of gifts, my wife got me a really cool new toy that made me feel like a kid again :) My niece and nephews were all jealous, hahaa. Also, I got really good news while I was out of town with the family. I will be getting my new Animas Ping pump this week and will start with a saline trial. I haven't used a pump before, but I thought it would be a good option to have and be able to use when needed. I will report on my findings when I get it and see how I like it.
Even better news, I just received a call from Dexcom today and am also getting the new G4 Continuous Glucose Monitor (left). I am really excited because it was questionable if my insurance was going to cover it! Looks like I will be getting it this week as well! Santa was nice to me, providing me with all these fun new gadgets! Wait, what did I just say? Thanks for "toys" that jab and penetrate my skin. Don't think most people would be to happy to get these, but they are expensive tools and will really help me in the continual management of my health on a day to day basis. Now I will have to carry two controller devices, one for my Dexcom and one for my Animas pump. The two companies are working on integrating the controllers soon, so that people will only have to carry one! That would be a huge help, since carrying all of this stuff is one of the biggest deterrents to using these helpful machines. My wish, integrate my phone, my pump, my CGM, my wallet, and my new helicopter controller!
The big concern I have now though is that I am not sure how or if I will be able to get the sensors when I move to Canada. I am super bummed about it and really want to write Dexcom a letter to see how I can try to work around this situation. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
