To quote Professor Hubert Farnsworth, “Good news, everyone!”
I had my fasting blood drawn this morning and after several stabs…
(That’s four, four painful sticks of a needle. I’m a nightmare draw.)
…my blood was drawn. And this afternoon I got the result of my A1C (and of my chem 14, but I wasn’t nearly as anxious about that result).
At the end of December, my A1C was 10.2. That was the A1C that got my surgery cancelled. The A1C that legit scared me.
I’m pleased to report that as of this morning, my A1C is down.
It’s not 9.5.
It’s not 8.5.
Wait for it…
You have no idea how excited I was to see that number. Especially since I know I didn’t apply myself nearly as much to the getting healthy process as I should’ve. But, as much as I blame the flu for me falling off the wagon of eating right and logging of food & blood sugar numbers, I’m thinking the flu actually deserves my thanks. See, I spent almost all of February sleeping, and when I ate, it wasn’t tons.
Now, I just have to try even harder to be good.
The only bad news? I’ve lost no weight. Zero. So, I’m sure that’s not going to thrill my doctor, but she should be happy about that 2.4 point (really hoping my mental math is right) drop of my A1C, right? Hopefully, this’ll keep me from having to go on insulin. Plus, since I’m below 8.0 my ob-gyn is going to be willing to consider doing my surgery again!!!!
