One less thing to worry about

ImagePatience is not my strong suit… not by a long shot. I was getting really anxious about my blood work from last Thursday. I was under the impression that if things were “bad” they would call and if everything was fine they would just send me the results in the mail. Well I just couldn’t wait anymore! With some help from some encouraging people, I called. The front desk clerk sent my request back to my Dr’s nurses and I got a call back about 2 hours later… NO DIABETES!!!!! They said they consider a normal A1C to be under 120 and mine was 108 so while it is still a little on the high side (indicating probably PCOS) I am not diabetic. 

Talk about a relief! One less thing to think about, to worry about, to obsess about… 

I do have two liver enzymes that are slightly elevated and since Dr. L wants me to continue to use the Metformin for the PCOS, I need to go back in two months for another liver enzyme test. I can do that. In the meantime I am really looking forward to E’s appointment this Friday with the Urologist. I am hoping they do something for his low testosterone and schedules a repeat semen analysis soon. 

We are going on vacation in two weeks and I think it will be the perfect break we need. Relax, be by the pool, read, eat good food and just have some no-stress fun!
