The most amazing Dexcom set up I have seen for parents of Diabetic kids. This is AMAZING!

1 comment:

I wanted to share this with you parents of diabetic kids on Dexcom, its from the Dexcom group on facebook. When you push the remote control button it turns the power cord on, therefore turning the screen on so you can see the number without going into the childs room to read it. If your room is too far to read your childs dex due to distance this system is amazing! Then you just push the button again to turn the power cord off so the next time you push it, the screen turns on again. 
The Amazon pic is the remote controlled cord from Amazon she uses.   Here is the link to the remote on amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Woods-32555-Outdoor-Control-Converter/dp/B001Q9EFUK
The white thing is a Motorola Video baby monitor with sound. You have the viewer in your room and it is wireless or can leave it plugged in too. I have this monitor for my baby. It is great. This set up is awesome!  Like this:  http://www.motorola.com/us/other-baby-monitors-1/MBP33-Wireless-Video-Baby-Monitor/95184.html

Joe, you rock!!

No comments:

So remember when I posted about my former Dexcom rep not sticking to his word on referrals and a free sensor in return?  My former rep owed me two and my current rep one and today my current rep mailed me three sensors for all my hard work and getting three people I know on the Dexcom system.  So this post is for Joe my Dexcom rep, thank you for being a stand up guy and getting me my three sensors!  So this is a major huge THANK YOU to Joe and Dexcom!

AFFORDABLE? Healthcare where are you?

No comments:
SO after 1.5 months of TRYING to apply for health coverage for my husband and daughter on healthcare.gov I just deleted our application and started over.  It took me maybe 10 minutes and then BOOM......DENIED a tax credit!

HAHAHA this is GREAT!  Stupid, its stupid.  We are below the income of a family of three that all the websites say and DENIED!  We have paid $19,000 in medical bills this year and I we were denied.  That's fabulous, I cant think of a better way to start out my Friday.

Called our insurance agent and PRAYING to GOD she can find us a cheaper plan. 

Our current plan will be $600/mo for my husband and baby!  REALLY?!   That is not affordable.  I have no way of paying that, no way.

I am trying so very hard to give it to God and trust in him.  Something has got to work out to be cheaper.  IT HAS TO!

My PortaPocket still rocks

No comments:
Just wanted to say I am still using my PortaPocket EVERY SINGLE DAY on my ankle and loving it.  It doesnt flop, it doesnt hurt and it is out of my pants pockets.  I love having my pockets to use for things other than medical devices and AND no one know I even have a pump on me!  I love this!

6950 page views since August 5th.  Holy smokes, thats crazy.  I hope I have helped someone some where.

Last week I helped another type 1 by showing them the Levemir prescription assistance program.  This made me feel great, I helped another Diabetic. 

Last week another friend went on the Dexcom because of me yapping about it all the time.

Last week I think I helped re-inspire a type 1 to use their new G4 Dexcom because it is so much better than the sevenplus. 

Last week a fellow type 1 in my facebook group told me that I inspired them, this was pretty cool.  I dont hear that all that much, well never really.

Joining twitter was probably the best decision I have made in a long time, there are a TON of Diabetics on there, in case you didnt know, and they have weekly chats to help us keep each other inspired.

Diabetes takes a TON of self inspiration.  It is a long arduous path, its hard and it never lets up.

I had an eat the fridge low last night, well my husband was there to help me stop thank GOD!  I had 2 juice boxes, a bite of banana and a roll of ritz crackers.  Yeah, AWESOME accomplishment.  Jeeze, DEXTER (dexcom) woke me up screaming I was 250.  Grand.  

Anyways onward to my paperwork mountain at work.

Oh and I had my thyroid scan today.  Its looking like thyroiditis.  Anyone here with experience with that and treatment please message me.  I was really expecting Graves disease again for the third time.  I hope to have exact dx by Friday and GET MEDS!! I am going to be bald soon if my hair doesnt stop falling out!!!
