I know when my son and I go for his 3 month check-up at the doctor’s office the numbers do not matter to him. I know he doesn’t have a full understanding what “A1C” means and why we have to wait 6 minutes for the results.
Congratulations to BOTH of you! You are a remarkable Mother. Rob is definitely in good hands. He is a little trooper too, he will continue to grow up strong, healthy and wise. A long, wonderful life awaits him. xo
That is wonderful! I’m sure it is challenging to manage diabetes in a boy so young. I find it hard enough to manage for myself as an adult. I agree with Robyn, you are a remarkable Mother and such a blessing to your son to take on such proactive diabetes care and work so hard to bring down his A1C. You are ensuring him the best quality of life! You should feel proud of this accomplishment.
It is great to hear about triumphs! Keep up the good work!
Thank you Christi & Jim!!
That is awesome!
Congratulations! I so know that feeling. I’m always very nervous on our check up days. It always feels like all the work you do each day and the small victories you’ve had - an 82 BG in the morning, or good numbers throughout the night, just fade away when you end up with an A1C that is less than great. You should be very proud of yourself, a 7.5 is great. We are still struggling to get under 8.
I know I’m excited that nicer weather is here. All that fun exercise outside sure helps the blood sugar numbers.
Keep up the good work, you love and determination are great. You are also mentoring a healthier life style for him and the rest of your family. Kudo’s mom and dad
