I wanted to share my big excitement of today.
I just opened my mail and there was a letter from the Medical Review group, overturning my previous denial by a health insurance group for a CGMS for my daughter!
It only took a couple of months, two looooong letters, and a lot of hope, and now, I am so close to it & I just need to figure out what I am supposed to do next :-)
