I just about peed my pants... and it's not because I'm pregnant

The number is in and it's good. No, it's great. Fred and I are freaking rock stars. Elise's A1C was 6.6. Her endo walked into the room and asked if we were ready to pass out. We didn't faint, but I teared up. Hearing a number like that (after TWO rounds of strep throat and antibiotics) is so worth all the crap we go through.

It's worth every sleepless night.

It's worth every carb we weigh.

It's worth every calculation.

It's worth every moment that we sit and pour over her numbers, trying to figure out how we can do better.

Elise's doc did go over our numbers to make sure that the low A1C wasn't a result of too many low BGs, and was pleased with what she saw.

6.6... oh my. I am so in love with that number that I am going to run off to Vegas and marry it.

    You are so right about it being worth it. Sometimes we get tired of the checking, measuring, weighing, but it's so worth it to know that your sweet little Elise is doing great.

  14. Hi Joanne! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I found yours a while ago through others and now have added you to my blog roll.

    GREAT A1c! It makes all the hard work worth it, doesn't it. Not that you can ever "win" at this, but it does give the feeling that you can, sometimes, conquer the mountain.

    Nice to meet you!
