    I think it was 9, which was our goal, a point or so every 3 months. It was 12 when we moved to Oregon and had our first visit with the new endo a year ago :eek: Makes me glad we got out of TX and their old ways!

    Daniel's was greater than 14 at Dx - then the next one was 6.6,7.5,7.8,6.9 and 6.6 again - we go again next month. Ours came down after starting the pump.

    6.6, up a little from our last one of 6.4.

    My goal is under 7, but if we ever don't make that, I don't plan to beat myself up. I just use it as one of many indicators that we're doing okay. Some things are just beyond your control.

    Charlies last was 8.1 two weeks after he started pumping. I am expecting it to be the same next month, too. We still haven't gotten everything tweaked right because of illness and growth spurts...

    Alden's was 6.8% at his Endo appt today, down from his 11.7% at diagnosis back in Dec.08. We were told this was great. :D

    OT, but we'll see when he'll actually get another test, as his Endo didn't want to see us again for 4 months... but when we tried to make an appt at check-out from the clinic, we were told he had no appts available for over 5 months. I know doctors are busy, but wow??? :confused: As it was, this is the first we've seen him since our son was dx... up until now we've only talked to CDE's on the phone and seen a nurse practitioner; didn't realize that Endos were so overbooked.

    Zac was at 5.4 at his endo app't today, I know it a sad thing when we have to try to gets our A1C up. He is very insulin sensitive, he was at 4.4 when we started at childrens 2 years ago. Dr did a major lab work-up today to rule out any other posibilities.

    Ok, this is pretty sad, but I had to go look up old posts because I could not remember his last A1C. Ugh, brain overload. We go back on 4/27 so hopefully we see some improvement over these numbers

    10/08 (diagnosis) - 10.6
    12/08 - 8.9
    1/09 - 8.2

    I am hoping for something in the low 7's, but am prepare for something higher just in case since we have battled some nasty highs at times!
