A1c update

I forgot to post this earlier.  I did go to my scheduled doctor visit on Wednesday after having a blood draw on Tuesday in the doctor's office (miscommunication; no order at the hospital, but I didn't get called in to sub).  To my shock and delight, but A1c went from 6.4 to 6.3!  WOOHOO!  I'm loving it!  (cue McD's jingle)  My doctor is thrilled!  His goal is to keep me under 6.5, though he understands my desire to shoot for non-diabetic numbers.  Since I'm only 40 years old, the tighter control I have now means the easier it will be for me as I get older.  Getting older is the goal, right?  My fasting was at 120.  Good, but could be better.

I'm proud of what I've done but I still strive for better.  I'm not perfect, nor do I try to be.  (Ok, I try to appear as a perfectly organized mom of five, but in all honesty I'm not.)  Here's rooting for all of us striving to do better, and here's praying for a cure.
