… a little more action!
That’s right. In the past 3 months, this blog has seen very little attention from me. In the case that I have been silent on this blog, one of two fundamentally opposed things are taking place. Option 1: I have fallen off the wagon into an abyss. In this abyss, there is lots of cake. And with my mouth so full of cake, I just can’t find my diabetic voice. Option 2: I am grabbing that feisty diabetic bull by the horns and can’t be bothered to write about it.
Headed into the “holiday months,” I must confess, I was extremely nervous. Last year, I was doing well up until those pesky pilgrims came out to share their cornucopias and pie, I fell into more of a rut. That followed through Christmas and into January. In February, I was bitterly assaulted by a sinus infection that left me on the couch for weeks. (The plus side of this: watching the entire first season of Once Upon a Time.) In March, I had my blood work done, and it was horrible. I was very discouraged, because I knew that my heart had changed so much regarding diabetes, but it was not showing up in the labs.
THIS YEAR MUST BE DIFFERENT.
I must stop Post-Christmas Blood work from coming! …But how?
Knowing the tendency to “relax” around the holidays, I determined to make the same choices over Christmas as I had been implementing already.
The bloodwork: in.
The results: Fantastic!
My a1c is finally, for the first time in my whole diabetic existence, in a “normal” range. For those familiar with the test, my number is 6.7. I had not even dared to hope that it would be below the 7’s, but God’s gracious gift to me was much better than I anticipated.
Thank you, Jesus!
