Day 192

well we learned that for some crazy reason..Madi's pump was not approved by our insurance.

We put in a request for Craigs pump and got a call saying its covered 100% and they will mail it that week..
We do madi's request and we got  a denial and a long letter stating why..

"Not medically necessary"

No proof of diabetes.
No proof that we have been to diabetes education training.. (really??, we've been there TWICE!)

so needless to say we have to appeal it and go through a long annoying process..

When I told Madi her pump was not approved she started crying... and said "why?!"
Then 5 minutes later she said "fine! Then I dont even want the pump!"

That day she cried "I hate shots" twice while getting 2 of her 7 injections she got that day...
