Default excited about lab results this morning!

I had a quickie appointment with my nurse practitioner this am before I start pump classes next week (finally!!) She checked some labs and my fructosamine was normal limits! woot! She said from the result that would equal an A1c in the low 7's....now I cant wait until time for my next A1c. I know its still not optimal, but oh so much better than the 12.6 I had 2 months ago

*pats herself on the back*

Hey lady! Turn around here so I can pat you on the back too! Nice going, Pam.

(if you find mistakes, it's just cuz I'm reading/writing with a large rigid shield over my operated eye . . . NOT the better to see you with, my dears! )

How are you feeling? Does it hurt much? Has the stress totally thrown you out whack? Or has the hospital's idea of an appropriate diet for a diabetic thrown you off? Glad you are ok *hug*

No pain & what threw me outta whack was the fasting. Being unable to eat a little protein when I wakened at 121 this morning, I had a prophecy for the nurse who came in to check my BG about 11am: Told her my waking number was 121 and added "bet I've had a nice liver dump since then" . . . and yep! 142! Grrrr

But I came with a sackful of avocados, cheese & pepperoni crisps, etc., so all is well. I feel fine - the eye feels like it has a lash in it, but doesn't hurt. Gotta wear a large rigid shield over it at least until I see the doc tomorrow morning, so my glasses don't fit well over the shield, but at least I won't be able to rub it in my sleep & wreck all the doc's good work! Haven't checked to see if my CPAP mask will fit with it - that could be a problem.

But it's been fine . . . wish they were doing the other eye right away! We'll see how soon I can get 'em to schedule it!

Way to go Pam! Congrats! Your A1C really dropped down, you must be relieved! Keep up the good work girlfriend!

I would like to have a camera to see you with the CPAP mask and the eye patch!

Pam, you are doing a great job with your control. Old Richard is proud of you!

Shanny, I did not realize you had surgery. Was it cataracts? I hope it was not something more serious. Take care!

Richard

Yep, it was one of my cataracts. I tried to persuade 'em to do both at once, but they're way too cautious for that! So now one eye sees 20/80 and bright & shiny . . . the other sees through a thick old lens all yellowish-brown. Ick! It'll be another month before they'll do the other eye. And if you think you want a picture of my CPAP & shield, you oughta see me going around now with a lens in one side of my specs and the other side plumb empty! It was the only way my eyes can focus in sync . . . to get rid of the no-longer-needed lens for the operated eye. So weird!
