First A1c back since starting the pump!

I got my first a1c back since going on pump therapy yesterday and it is 5.5! i was excited because I thought that my a1c would actually rise where i am having hardly any lows anymore. But now I know that my hard work and eating is really paying off, hopefully i can continue to keep this up on the pump.
