Getting my CGMS! Finally!

Well folks, tomorrow seems to be the day that I finally get to get hooked up to my CGMS! I have a Minimed rep coming tomorrow after work to get it all set up. I will admit, I am SOO nervous. I haven't even figured out whether my basals and my insulin to carb ratios are correct, yet... Although, I suppose this will definitely help me to figure it all out.

I'll tell you how it goes tomorrow

did you buy it or you are covered?

Gina, in response to your question: I don't know, but I think it's covered.

Yea, I know... When I called MiniMed to get my pump and CGMS ordered, they said it was all covered and that the total I would owe was like $50. Well, my bill says I owe like $500, but I had been seeing several doctors, etc. so I think I just owed more due to my deductible changing once all of my medical expenses got processed. But I am afraid to call...because I WANT it to be covered. I have the CGMS and ten sensors, which will last about 10 weeks, and so if it isn't covered, then I just won't reorder sensors unless I need to figure out my patterns.

I will find out soon, since well, I do have to pay the bill and I want to know WHAT I am paying for since it is different than the amount I was quoted. I know I am nuts...
