I am mostly just eager to get going on this whole process! I talked to my endo to see if she thought I would need a letter to help prove "my case." She said that the CGM data had 2 nights of me going low at night/early morning, which should be enough. She also recorded in my chart that I was having trouble distinguishing the lows, and that should also go in my favor. Fingers crossed!

So my next big "D" decision is what kind of CGM I want. Do I go with the Medtronic sensors that link to my pump? Or do I go with the Dexcom that I hear everyone blog about? I guess I need to do some research and maybe make a pro/con list. I remember 3 years ago, when I was deciding which pump I wanted...I still wonder if I made the right choice! At one point, I even thought of switching over to the Animas Ping. Currently I am thinking of upgrading my pump since I am still under warranty and it sounds like it has some improvements that may also work better with the CGM sensors.
