I'm tired, cranky and mad too, though our stories differ. Got my first A1C
result since pumping -Aug0700- and it was a fantastic 7.0. wow. My A1C in
July was a super-fantastic 7.1. wow. A whole .1 percentage point for all
this insurance battling, carb counting, record keeping, trouble shooting,
infusion set changing, reservoir filling, basal rate setting, high/low BG
correcting, external device toting work I have done since August 07. Wow.
I am still reeling as I contemplate this pivotal tidbit of information that
affirms the success (or non-success in this case) of everything I have done
for my health in the past 11 weeks. Now I have to travel from Nassau to
Florida tomorrow and meet with my CDE, RD and DR (and whoever else wants a
piece of me) to give them this enlightening news.
For all of you who have shaved a percentage point or more off your A1Cs (and
apparently there are a lot of you according to this site)-GOOD FOR YOU! I
wish I could make such a claim. My 7.0 is not good enough for me to
consider pregnancy, which was ONE of the reasons I embarked on this Pumping
expedition in the first place. There was a thread a few weeks ago that
expounded a notion I'd like to revisit today- DIABETES SUCKS.
