Keep on keepin’ on

21 08 2008

Sorry I haven’t written in awhile, but things have been VERY busy around here.  There was DP’s wedding, then we hosted a giant birthday bash celebrating 4 of our friends birthdays.  It’s been a fun sort of busy, but still draining.

I had my “endo” appointment yesterday.  I put that in quotes because I didn’t actually see my endo, but a really nice CDE.  I had done a lot since my last visit:

  • stepped up exercise with Wii Fit
  • went off Benicar (blood pressure still looks fine, phew)
  • added a women’s multivitamin
  • added a low-dose aspirin regimen
  • got a Dexcom

I was a little worried that my A1c would go up since I had been preventing lows with Charlie (fewer lows means a higher average), but I came out with a 5.5%. Holy crap!  The CDE lady was really impressed with everything and said to just keep doing what I’m doing.  =)

I did mention that my backup supplies are just about expired, so she gave me a Levemir pen and a Humalog pen.  She also gave me a vial of Apidra to try.  That will be neat.

My goal for the rest of the year is to keep things under control, so I can get another sub-6% A1c in December.  Then, I will have had a whole year of “not having diabetes.”
