OMG! OMG! OMG! I'm ready to burst and I don't think my fingers can type fast enough to say everything I wanna say at once!!

I was teaching 1st grade and I couldn't answer my phone and I'd checked messages during my break and it was a call from Smith's Medical. It didn't register at first and then it hit me....COZMO! I called the lady back and got her voicemail. Dang! So I left a message for her to call me back after 4pm because I'd be teaching the rest of the day. Well at 4pm, I called her back...voicemail again... DARN! So I leave a message and go to the kitchen. My phone rings and before I could get back in to it.... 1 voicemail. CRAP! It was her! So I call back...voicemail. OMG! I'm playing phonetag! So I tell her on voicemail that I will be holding my phone the rest of the evening (LOL!) and for her to call back when she can. About 5 min later my phone's her! So she goes on to tell me that she verified benefits with my insurance.


Jill, your insurance will pay 100% up to $3500 ....WHATTTTTTTTTTTT? So I asked her to repeat herself LOL! And she did! Haha! OMG! So this means our out of pocket expense will only be alittle over $1000!!! HOLY COW! If that wasn't enough to bring tears to my eyes and make me jump for joy.... she says Oh, and if we ship it out this afternoon, she could have it by next Thursday or Friday. OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!! I immediately teared up!!! So she is going to call me in the morning and let me know when it will be shipped because we have to be here to sign for it. Once it's shipped, I have to call the doctor's office and get the appointment set up for the 3 hour training and week saline trial.

OMG! I really didn't think this would happen so fast!

After I hung up the phone, I went running outside to share the good news with Kacey. She was riding her bike and I told her that her Cozmo could be here by next week!! She started to cry!!!'s the exciting part....yep theres MORE....Wanna know why?

Her birthday is next SUNDAY!!!

Ever since I told her she couldn't get the pump for Christmas, she said then thats all I want for my birthday! If it arrives next Thurs/Fri then I could keep it a secret and surprise her with it at her party!!! How cool would that be? For all her friends and family to be in on the fun! YAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!

Once again, everything happens for a reason :) The best part is....we can pay for it in payments and it's not so much out of us!! WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO!

Rachel said...

Wonderful news!!!!!! I'm so happy for you guys... but I do have 1 question... Kacey was out riding her bike???!!!! I'm so jealous, we have ice and snow here!!! :) LOL

Jill said... was nice here today LOL! But not for long...they are calling for pouring rain on Saturday and a snowstorm on Monday. I'll believe it when I see it! Haha...they've called for snow twice before and all we got were flurries. I guess 3rd times a charm and we'll get slammed with a blizzard. Hahaha! Oh yeah and she went from a BG of 287 to 90! LOL! Gotta love a good bike ride ;)

Right on!

Pave the way for better numbers and a healthier child!

Only a diabetic family understands opening a pump for a birthday present! Are we weird or what?! (I'll take the 5th)

Woooo Hoooo!!!! We are so excited! Nikki wants to know what color Kacey is getting and after she gets Nikki says be sure to tell Kacey they are twins!!!!

Jill said...

Thank you all!! :)

She's getting the black one. The rep that we spoke to said the statement we heard about the purple one coming back was a it was green, blue or black and she wanted the black ;) Then we're gonna get her different cell phone cases to put it in.

YAYYY! We're so excited :)
