A short update

I got a phone call last night from my endocrinologist. From her, not her nurse or some office flunky, which was very fantastic. She was calling to tell me my thyroid test was fine, but she wanted it checked again in a couple of weeks, and then she asked about my glucose test. I told her the results (117, which is good) and then told her that I'd been checking all day yesterday and gave her those numbers. She was concerned with the high readings and wants me to ask for the three hour test (oh fun) and wants me to track my numbers today, too. So I'm going to do that. I'm going to have to ask for a prescription for test strips, though, since I'm almost out of the One Touch extras I had, and I can't use O's meter since she brings it to school with her each day. But how cool that the doctor is concerned! And called me back! Amazing.

In other news, I got a new temp in here on Monday. She's MUCH better. Nice, friendly without being ooky, chatty without having diarreah of the mouth, and she doesn't require much in the way of hand-holding. I think she'll fit in just fine around here. Roll on June 14th.

"Yay" for having a Dr. who is on the ball and attentive and all that.

I'll get all prayerful for ya, too.

What luck to have an endo who actually does their own follow up.

And congrats on finding a girl to fill in for you.

You're in my thoughts. Gest. diabetes is probably pretty high on the list of things you DON'T need right now.

Glad you are in good hands! Praying for good results.

At least, you have less stress about the temp situation now :-)
