We are up and running with the dexcom! I'm super excited about it especially because my daughter is really excited for it too. I'm an idiot though, and I only recently realized that we can't follow her on our phones from the receiver. All this time I was thinking she would carry the receiver and we'd follow her on our iphones. duh. She is 8 so we weren't exactly planning on getting her her own phone at this age, however I'm considering it now. I'm curious about what other parents with kids around her age do? Right now I think we are good just getting used to using the receiver and cgming in general, but part of the reason we got it was so we can check in on her when she's with friends or whatever.
