So, off to the post office the next day to pick up the box...fun.
When I saw the return address I realized it was from the new 'managers' for the chronic conditions care program associated with our insurance coverage.
Here are the contents of the box:
booklet about Diabetes Management, pill organizer,
Carbohydrate Counting Cookbook, and pedometer
Now, let me start by saying that I've already talked with these people and gave them EXTENSIVE information about Bean.
So, they sent a seven year old, Type 1, a four-compartment-a-day pill organizer? REALLY!?!
And the cookbook....copyright 1998....with very few, if any, child friendly options. REALLY!?!
Ah, the booklet. The lovely booklet that is supposed to help my child manage her diabetes has one picture of a child out of the twenty two 'people' illustrations. REALLY!?!
Where as I appreciate this 'benefit' of our insurance coverage, I just can't understand why they can't figure out that these items aren't appropriate for the patient they are sending them to!! ('to whom they are sending them', I know, I just think it sounds so weird!)
And then, there was this little 'funny' that my MIL showed me last night when we were over at their house for dinner... BELGIAN WAFFLES, yummy!
It was in a magazine she happened to be reading.
download a UTI? um, no thanks! :)
And a quick question...those of you who use Tegaderm...does the UniSolve (or whatever adhesive loosen-er you use) work for it, too?
Had to go the 'Tegaderm route' with the dexcom sensor because after a few days, even with SkinPrep, the adhesive pulls up around the edges and the cloth tape that was supposed to be 'super strong' isn't doing the trick!
