We had an endo appointment yesterday. DD wasn't too happy, her A1c jumped up to 7.4 from 7.1. Which is really not bad, but she's not happy, things are changing and then she stresses about it. Its that never ending circle. We asked about the pump, but the Dr. said that she doesn't really have luck getting ins. to pay for the pump before the patient has had diabetes for 9 mo. But she was extremely positive about DD getting the pump. we aren't going for the iPort either she gave us smaller needles. :) I think we will be ok, at the end of summer we will request a pump. :) We are also going to start messing w/the formula for breakfast - between 1.2 and 1.5 or 1.2 and 1 unit. We will see how it works. DD's numbers are high in the morning and mid mornings. WE are also finding that PE she jumps, doc said that this happens with some people, but not to correct, just to let it naturally come down? Does anyone else have this issue? She also gave us some ideas on helping our dog notice DD's lows. I think this is awesome, DD sleeps with our dog already and I think he would pick up on it if he new what to smell for.
Anyway after waiting 1 1/2 hrs to see the dr. we went to look at new mini vans!!! YEAH We test drove the VW Routan (VERY NICE!! ) and the Honda Odyssey. WE are waiting to see numbers from the Routan and then we will make our decision. We are leaning very heavily towards the odyssey mostly because the routan is a new model, 1st year model. WE are looking towards the future and are leasing. Maybe in 3 yrs we will take another look at the routan. There were pros and cons for both vehicles. Anyway hopefully by Monday we will have a new minivan.
