Before I got sick I would have guessed my A1C was right around 6.3 which I would have loved to see. A month of roller coaster blood sugars is going to make that number a bit higher, possibly close to 7. I know why it will be higher than normal but it is still tough to accept a number near 7. I pride myself on keeping my A1C below 7, for whatever reason 7 is the magic number. A reading of below 7 makes me feel good like I have accomplished something.
Right now I'm doing my best to get back to my normal routine and normal blood sugars. I'm getting closer but it has been tougher than I thought. Tomorrow will be a great visit with my endocrinologist, I need a little pick me up and I need to hear that he approves of my pursuit of becoming an ultra runner. I still don't know if pursuing that dream will be possible, I'm not prepared to hear that I can't or shouldn't be running fifty miles a week with what has happened over the last month. What I do know is that I will have my health, my family and my friends no matter what the doctor says tomorrow. At the end of the day that is all that matters, I'm looking forward to my appointment in the morning and will be sure to share the results sometime tomorrow morning.
