Back in the swing

I haven't been to a doctor since just before Ian was born. I went to so many doctor appointments while I was pregnant, and then we had a newborn and then I just didn't get around to making the appointment. But in a fit of organization after Gary's "well, why didn't you just do it?" crap the other week, I have an eye doctor appointment Thursday afternoon and I went back to my endocrinologist this morning. It was good to see him again. We had a nice chat, he went over my labs and told me they all look good. He asked how I knew how much nursing would lower my blood sugar and I told him "we're doing a lot of winging it these days".

And that sort of explains why my A1C was 7.2. I'm okay with that. I'm still doing healthy things and we're getting better. I expect that to go down by our next visit in March. I won't get getting those 5.7s like I had when I was pregnant, but I'm okay with that too.

As my doc said, "things are just more complicated now. But you're doing well." Indeed.
