The Time Is Here!

All those days of counting down and it's finally here. Tomorrow Kacey goes to the Endo for her first real check up since being diagnosed 6 months ago. She will get her A1c checked this time!

Excited. Nervous. Scared. Anxious. Happy. All of these feelings are swirling around inside of me. I'm excited because I finally get to discuss getting Kacey on the pump. I'm nervous because I don't know what to expect. I'm scared because it's the D-Report Card and this will tell me how good we've managed things the last 6 months. I'm anxious because I have a list of questions to ask and I hope I have time to get them all answered. I'm happy because if Kacey is approved for the pump then we could be in pump classes as early as the first Thursday in Feb and it makes me smile to think that the "All I want for my birthday is a new pump!" is actually possible! I just hope that "Disappointed" isn't added to that list after the visit!

Until tomorrow.....

Good luck with the appointment. I'm sure it will be fine.

If the A1C is not what you hoped, don't get discouraged. There are many tricks this diabetes plays on us.

Keep us posted.

Prayers for a super duper tomorrow!!!! Keep us posted...remember that the A1c is JUST a number. Good or not so good -- it doesn't measure your mothering value :)

(You might have to remind me of that when Addy goes for her next appt on 2/12...)

Good luck for tomorrow, and if it's not 100% perfect, don't worry, the first six months are a difficult time.

Hope it all goes well :]

Hurray!!!! I sure hope the endo takes the time to answer each and every question. And remember, the numbers are not a "report card" - no pass or fail. They are just a benchmark, and will just show you where you need to go from here. :)
