Good News

My doctor just called a few minutes ago to tell me that my pre-operative blood work has come back with some good news! My A1C (diabetic blood indicator) is at 6.8! For those of you that don't know - it's supposed to be at 6.0 or lower to have a healthy baby. So I'm already well on my way to getting that hurdle crossed.

My A1C in January was a 12.0 - so I've come a long way!! My doctor was really pleased with that, but now the fun begins... we'll start tapering off the medications in less than a month and see how my body reacts.

The only other news that he gave me was that my thyroid was borderline high - which he said can happen on one set of labs and be completely different the next time around. So he's going to give me some samples of a pill to take for that and we'll see what happens while I'm in the hospital or afterwards.

Overall - that is very good news - and about the first time I've gotten news from blood work like that in a long time... Have I mentioned that Dr. Weinstein is the best doctor I've ever seen in my life?!
