Sweet Success

Today was V’s follow up appointment with the Endocrinologist. Her A1C is down to 7.2, compared to 7.9 three months ago.

For three months, we kept our focus on the goal of tightening the control. It was a lot of work and often felt exhausting, overwhelming and futile. We fought through a GI virus and a strep throat. We battled persistent highs and conceded defeat at least once. We helped V hold her own while she was spending time at her grandparents’ house over break. We increased our diligence of carb counting, made several major adjustments to insulin dosing, and tried to stay on top of it all as best as we could. We lost many battles in the process but for the last three-months period we won the war. Take that, Diabeetus!
