But, we have GREAT insurance now (because we pay out our of our noses for it) and I am going to be starting pumping next month, if everything works out. In addition, I will be trying out CGM-ing too! I'm pretty excited about that, because I've never done it before. I'm most likely going to be using the Animas Ping and will definitely be using the Dexcom.
And I'm stoked. STOKED! (does anyone say that anymore? no? . . . anyone?)
But I'm nervous. I'm nervous about being connected to TWO things. I'm nervous about the cost, I'm not looking forward to basal testing, and all those other things that come with pumping.
But, I'm SO looking forward to having an easier time of getting my A1Cs to where I want them to be! I'm one of those people who absolutely needs a variable basal rate, and Lantus is just not cutting it.
So, that's what's up, these days. Woot!
Post Script: I was originally going to title this post "Big Pumpin". You know, as some witty word play. However, I just looked up the actual lyrics to the song "Big Pimpin" and I'm horrified! I don't think I've actually ever heard that song, just the title, and it seemed like a fun little play on words. Not so fun anymore! Just know, that I am horrified by how many times Jay-Z managed to fit the F-bomb in there! Not to mention the sheer amount of women-hating going on in that song! ! Yikes spikes! DON'T look up the lyrics! Your eyes might bleed when you read them!
