AND....I'm at 6.3!!!!! Wow! I can't believe it! This was the best news I ever could have gotten in the past month (sounds lame) but so true! I was at 7.3 three months ago and I've worked my butt off (with nearly no exercise) and it's at 6.3! The hubby knew I was looking for 6.5 or lower and he was trying to give me a pep talk last night that if things didn't go as planned, that it would be okay! This is even better than what I asked for. I think this calls for a celebration!
I left work early to head to the med center to register and get blood work. Thank goodness I didn't have to give a urine sample today. Some lady in there while they were taking blood spilled her entire cup all over the toilet, sink, and floor. It gave me the jitters just thinking about it- and I had to pee (just in case) and finally found another bathroom down the hall. I met with the Nurse Practitioner today...whom I LOVE! She was absolutely fabulous- she spent over an hour with me which made me feel important and that she cared. She brainstormed ideas with me on how to make "work outs" possible for me. We're going to try cutting my bolus for dinner in half and see if that helps. I'll also track those pre/post numbers- and we have a backup plan if that doesn't work.
I asked her about the CGM and she showed me the data from the sensor readings comparative to my meter readings- actually pretty close. She told me that overall it was pretty spot on and that I am probably just a little hyper aware and to give it some time. I'm going to try and calibrate ONLY 3 times a day and see if that helps some!
We then started making some changes and compromising on some (which was awesome) and then she laughed and said "ooohh- maybe we shouldn't change these numbers- Diabetes Educator lady is needing my info tomorrow and we probably just screwed up all the baseline data we just got!" Oh well- I'll deal with the consequences and DE lady can suck it up.
So- I'm pretty much in a good mood now and looking for a great way to celebrate!
