Brave Boy Brag

Last night at bedtime check and Lantus time, Bryson decides he wants to give him own shot. He has drew up the insulin before and wanted to, and tried but hasnt quite made it there. I understand completely.It has to be hard to try to give yourself a shot. His endo also said until age 10, they arent developmentally there to do it.

Well last night he proved us all. He gave himself his Lantus in his leg. And was thrilled to death with himself. As were we. He conquered something he wanted to do so badly.

At breakfast this morning, he did it again.

He is so proud of himself, and that makes me so happy for him. I dont expect him to do it, but I'm proud he pushed himself past his fear! Good Job Bryson!

Doctor's Appt.

We went back to the endo today. We just love Dr.Artz! She thought everything looked really good, and that we are still in the honeymoon phase probably. She also told us that come March, when we go back, to be ready to discuss PUMPS!

Yay! We told her we had it narrowed down pretty much. Unless insurance costs change it majorly, we will be picking the Medtronic!

We also had blood drawn and now have new A1C results. Of course, the honeymoon phase could have something to do with this...but I'll take it...we had 11.3 when they admitted Bryson in the hospital in September, but today....

7.2!!!!!  Yes, a 7.2!! That's really good! I wish I was naive enough to think it would stay there, but I'm just glad we were able to get it that good on the first try!

We also added another nighttime check, at midnight and 3 am. Just till we get a better idea of what his numbers are through the night. He is still having frequent bathroom trips during the night and we are pondering what it may be. So, I get another alarm to set for a while.  As much as I love my sleep, I really dont mind the checks. It makes me sleep a little better.
