Stop me if you think you've heard this one before

Today was our quarterly endo appointment. A few weeks ago, I found out that Children's Hospital had just opened up a specialty clinic about 5 minutes from our house. The best thing of all? It included an endocrinology department, AND Elise's doc was going to be seeing patients there.

This meant a reduced driving time of 50 minutes round-trip, no traffic, and we wouldn't have to endure the beating it can be to go to the clinic at the hospital. Yes please!

When we walked into the office, we were the only patients there. I loved the more personal service, and I am so glad that we will be taking Elise there from now on.

And the A1C? A nice, even 7.0. Which is exactly the same as last time. And the time before that. In fact, Elise's last A1Cs over the past year and a bit have been; 7.0, 7.0, 7.0, 6.6, and 7.1. I'm good with that.

For now.

    hope nursing it going better too...I had a lot of trouble with Ethan and nursing strikes, then he ended up nursing until he was 25months old, funny how that goes!

  11. Ok, Joanne, I think I saw that clinic on our way home from Rainforest Cafe last week. Happy for you, but BOY AM I JEALOUS that you don't have to deal with downtown anymore! I'm mean green, green jealousy. What a blessing for you especially with the tough go lately, huh. It's the little blessings that make a big difference. Love ya!

  13. Both the A1c and the closer office are such great news!

    We drive 200 miles each way. One of the docs in our practice, a different one than we see, is moving to a town about 75 miles away from us. I'm seriously considering making the switch!
