I just got my letter from the insurance company about my request for the CGMS! They approved it! First time through. I am so excited I can hardly breath! I have already talked to the rep from MiniMed and they are going to get the process started. Basically, this means I should be hooked up by no later than the end of February, if I am figuring correctly.

This is so exciting!

AWESOME! I'm so happy for you, and can't wait to hear how you navigate the quirky world of CGMS's. I think they'd drive me batty and make me even more OCD, but I'm so pleased your insurance finally approved it for you!

You go, girl! Think of your new CGMS as your sweet Valentine!

Congratulations on the CGMS approval! That's great.

On a side note: I want my stomach to look like the girl's in the picture. LOL!

yay! congrats.

how did you argue it? was it a big fight? do you have hypoglycemia unawareness? i'd like to get it at some point in the near future, and i don't have any hypoglycemia unawareness, but my blood sugars are out of control and erratic, so i'm just thinking about what strategies will work with the insurance companies...

2 things:

1. You should post what u wrote to get approved.

2. I blog tagged u.
pick either 7 celebs u met or 7 weird facts about yourself and create a post.
Then tag 7 other blogs.
if u don't want to do it, no worries,
I still dig your blog!
