 "Annie" is Kaceys new insulin pump. She's only been hooked up for 24 hours but she adores it already! Without this device, she would have to take a shot every single time she wanted to eat. It holds 200 units of insulin and she gets her infusion set changed every 2-3 days.
"Daisy" is her Continual Glucose Monitoring System. This shows us blood sugars in real time and helps us identify trends and Kacey is able to see her blood sugar rising and falling and treat it before it becomes a danger.
"Pippi" is her blood sugar meter and remote. With a few simple touches of a few buttons, she is able to administer her insulin by this remote instead of pulling her pump out. She's only had this device for 24 hours and she's in love with it! She can now have the freedom to tuck her insulin pump away and wear the dresses she wants to without having to go diving up her dress to pull her pump out.

All three of these wonderful girly devices keep Kacey alive every day. We're so thankful to their power and individuality. Each of them plays such a special part in making sure Kacey stays on track with her diabetes care.

We're so blessed to have such a wonderful insurance company. Yeah, I know I've had my share of gripes with them but this time...Blue Cross Blue rocked the process! It was only about 2 weeks from the time we started paperwork til the time the new pump was in our hands. We're also blessed that we only had to come out of pocket $102 for a $5000 device. Believe me....the power of prayer WORKS! We prayed every single day about this and I had friends praying for us to make sure this was possible. THANK YOU everyone!!
