Justice Loves His Dex.

So I started implementing "school work" for the kids this summer. To keep them on their toes.

One of Justices assignments today was to write about his Dexcom.

Why I love my Dexcom
By Justice Newell

"I love my Dexcom because it tells my sugar.
It tells me if I'm high or low.
It makes me feel happy.
I can name it.
It beeps so my parents can hear it.
When I don't feel low it tells me.

That's why I love my Dexcom!".

I loved seeing him so happy about his Dex but I did explain he would need to put more effort into his essays! This is school work folks.

He proceeded to tell me he truly loves his Dex.

I asked him if he would trade it for anything and he said..

"Only for a cure mom...".
