And I'm back. Thanks for all the good wishes on Friday! They seemed to work as I had a wonderful time. Fondue at the Melting Pot on Friday night. Museum and dinner/drinks with friends on Saturday. Brokeback Mountain on Sunday (have you seen it?! Fabulous!) and then a very early flight home yesterday. I went straight to work after arriving at the Midway airport at 8am. Needless to say I wasn't terribly productive yesterday at work. Ah well. It was well worth it.
I had my endocrinologist appointment yesterday after work. A1c of 6.0 (a little higher than my previous blood test a1c of 5.7). My doctor was very happy with the number so that's fine by me. I'm probably just slowly creeping out of the honeymoon so bit by bit it will become harder to keep my a1c as low as it is. I also got a few new (free!) toys including a back up meter and the software/cable to download my meter to my computer. Why I haven't had this before I have no idea. My doctor also informed me that Chicago is one of the 7 cities that Minimed is testing their new Guardian Continuous Glucose Monitoring System. He *whispered* to me that the next time I visit he might be able to let me test it for a week or so. I might just have to do that.
