    Connor had his endo appt today (Tuesday). Boy has it been a long day. The endo is 2 hours away and we got out just in time for 5:00 traffic so we did not get home until 8:00pm.

    The appt went well. His A1C is back down to 6.1. She doesn't want it to go any lower but is fine with it in the 6 range. She was pleased with his numbers overall and said his standard deviation is pretty good. He has had a few too many lows the past 2 weeks but I knew that already. School has really messed with us but we are getting a handle on it now.

    He had his annual labs drawn a couple of weeks ago and the Celiac panel came back negative for everything. His thyroid was also fine. His good cholesterol is 52 which is great. The bad (LDL I think) is 101. She said that is ok but she does not want it to go any higher so try to cut back on his fat intake just a little.

    She really praised us for how we are handling things and was not able to suggest any changes I had not already made. She just told me to email if anything comes up I need another set of eyes to look at.

    Now for my brave move of the day:
    We left school early enough to eat lunch on the way and Connor wanted pizza buffet so we went. It was 12:15 when we got there. Here are his blood sugars for the day. I can't believe how lucky we got.

    12:15 91 (before pizza)(pre-bolused 30 carbs, then post-bolused 100 carbs on a 1.5 hour square)
    2:40 166 (2 hours post meal)
    3:30 98 (at the endo's office)
    6:15 160 (Ate Subway for dinner)
    8:15 100 (Before bed)
    10:15 113
