And the number is......

So yesterday was Justice's first Endo appt since starting to pump. We have always been happy with our A1C results even with MDI, he always ranged between 7.0-8.0 which is perfect for his age. But I had higher hopes with the pump, less lows, less highs, you know better control! I knew I would be happy with it no matter what because he WAS feeling and doing better.

So what what is you ask?

Well.....

 The A1C is..........


6.8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


whOooHoOOO!!!!!


The endo was thrilled, as were we. She said she doesn't want to see under 6.5 for him because she fears too many lows, and losing the ability to feel them. She said there is nothing she can tell us to improve on, as we are doing amazingly well, and she believes the Ping will only make it better.


I feel so happy with our decision to pump. Even with all the sleepless nights, sites pulled, bubbles, and a little boy who took a while to stop saying "Ugh, I miss my shots", I know this was the right decision to give him a better chance at a complication free adulthood!
