[IP] Additions to thoughts for Holly

I need to clarify some things here.  When I said his initial A1C was 5.4,but
we had one drawn today, and he is 8, I meant he is 8 years old.  I just
called the clinic today to find out the A1C results, and he is 5.6.  I don't
know if I should jump for joy or cry?!!  Unfortunately I was hoping for high
so we had more ground to stand on.  I guess we will go from the viewpoint of
chronic hypo's affecting him.  We will see how all goes on Tuesday after we
see his new dr.
