Update after my appointment with the Doc. She was simply trying to not get my hopes up by mentioning the six months. UHC determined the pump medically necessary and medtronic shipped me the minimed 630g system yesterday. Should arrive tomorrow. I will also be automatically upgraded to the hybrid close loop system(670g) as soon as it comes out at no cost.
From the bottom of my heart. Thanks to all of you. This diagnoses has been a lot of things: sad, overwhelming, painful, etc. but thanks to you a lot less lonely.
