Thanks to MikeG for the tip, as my family and I have literally just landed. Cleared customs, hopped in a van, dropped our luggage in the foyer, and of course I'm online already (if a little light-headed).

Dexcom_logoBut I just had to call attention to the news that DexCom's software allowing patients to download and view up to 30 days of glucose data from its wireless continuous monitoring system was approved by the FDA today! The product info doesn't appear on DexCom's site yet, but Mike reports via a sales rep that the retail price will be $79, and the company will start shipping next week. On behalf of the Upstairs gang: Hooray!!

Now I'm going downstairs (literallly, not metaphorically) here to collapse. More from the DM Front once the Jet Lag's done its thing :)
