'Super Good Job'
I guess I'm a bit, um, anal retentive. I was so worried about my A1c since I had been having some higher numbers that I failed to look at how I was doing overall. I went to my endocrinologist yesterday. They downloaded my pump and meter and analyzed my numbers while they also took a blood sample to check my A1c. We chatted a bit about the number and then he looked down to see that my A1c was 5.4. Ho. Ly. Crap.
Turns out he thought my numbers were great. I also lost 10 pounds since my last visit which is pretty close to where I want to be. He even wrote, on my evaluation sheet I get at the end that sums up the appointment, “Super Good Job.” That’s right. It’s like I got an A+ from my doctor.
Anyway, now I’m almost embarrassed for how worked up I’ve been lately about how well I’m doing. I guess I’m a perfectionist of sorts, although there are MANY things that I could careless about doing perfectly.
It was great new and hopefully I won’t get horrible news from my Otolaryngologist at today’s appointment.
