Do you want to take that off

Scott Benner

Arden’s school pictures arrived yesterday and I immediately noticed that she had her CGM on in the photo. I started a conversation about it so I could commend her but as it turns out, she doesn’t need my pat on the back... She told me that as she waited in line for her turn to smile she was asked if, she’d like to take her DexCom 7+ off for the photo. 

 

Arden declined!

 

If you look closely you can see that Arden wears her DexCom receiver in a Spibelt around her waist. She has many patterns and colors, on this day she was wearing a black pouch with multicolored peace signs.

 

 

I can’t tell you how proud I am of Arden for not wanting to hide her Continuous Glucose Monitor. Arden has diabetes and she doesn’t care who knows - so proud of her! Arden’s school pictures arrived yesterday and I immediately noticed that she had her CGM on in the photo.
