Endo appointment

As a D-Mom, there is nothing better than being told you're doing a good job!

The truth isn't always in the numbers, I mean you can have a descent A1C, but that doesn't tell you how much time or effort you put into managing this complicated, ever changing disease.

Today we attended our clinic day at the provincial children's hospital.  We saw a medical student, the Endo, a CDE and a dietician.  They all had the same message......

Keep up the Good Work!

Amy is growing normally in both weight and height, her numbers are good, we have a minor basal adjustment to make to help with the breakfast spike, her eating and diet choices are good as well as physical activity.  They were pleased with everything, gave us a pat on the back and said see you in February.

I must say, although the A1C isn't a report card, I'm anxious to see how much the pump has made a difference.  Although we started in February, we haven't had an A1C done except the one a few weeks later.

We head back home tomorrow after being in the city since Saturday.  We travelled early to attend the JDRF halloween party.  Amy had a great time, and it was nice to finally be able to attend an event.  I hope we are able to attend more in the future.

  1. Glad to see the pump is a helpful tool! There are many things like this, that many people simply aren't aware of. I have a diabetes related question and would appreciate your input. Please email me when you have a moment. Thanks!
