Waiting game

14 05 2008

I had an endo-follow-up appointment yesterday with the Nurse Practitioner yesterday, and it was rather anti-climactic. The NP didn’t really offer any suggestions for some of the dinner number troubles I’ve been having, and I don’t think she did a very good job of “following up” on the stuff that got talked about at my endo appt. It seemed like such a waste for me to take a 1/2 day off work and drive all the way up to the Diabetes Center, to talk about…. nothing really.

HOWEVER, I did get a date set up for my Dexcom training. It won’t be until next Friday (the 23rd), which seems like soooo far away. According to my Dexcom rep, I should be getting my kit either today or tomorrow, so I’ll have a week of tortuous waiting. I am halfway tempted to try it out ahead of time, but I don’t really feel like messing up a $60 sensor.

There is (potential) good news about insurance coverage though. Dexcom says that they have an in-network supplier for the sensors, so they’re going to try to get it covered. If they do, the sensors will end up being fairly reasonably priced, which will be totally sweet.

Hi Amalas.

You’re tagged. If you’re up to it, take a look at my site to see what this is all about.

The week of waiting will pass slowly, I’m sure. But I hope it will be worth it for you, and also that you get that coverage.

Enjoy the weekend.
