- Her A1C was still over 11.
- She had mono.
- She was kicking, screaming and running away from us for all blood tests and shots.
- She would demand we wake her up at 2 AM when we came in to test her and she would sit up and cry and yell during it.
- She was making it to school about 1 day a week.
- She was pale and complained often of joint pains and fatigue.
|Diagnosis Day: 12-20-11|
- A1C coming down, down, down...
- She has good skin color and tone again thanks too from all her outdoor activity and swimming.
- She has gained back all the weight (18 pounds) she lost at diagnosis (and then some).
- She does all of her own blood glucose testing except the 2 AM check.
- At the 2 AM check, she never even opens an eye or gives any indication she is remotely awake. I NEVER thought I'd see the day!
- She draws some of her shots and never fights us when it is shot time.
- She is eagerly awaiting her insulin pump start (set for June 26th) and smiled and laughed after having the infusion set inserted during her pre-pump class.
- She completed the school year with straight As (except for spelling - I'm just not counting that one!) and an easy promotion to 4th grade despite missing an excessive amount of school between January - March.
- Her foot pain is completely gone (hopefully to stay) and she actually gave karate a try this week without pain after the class!
