2 good days of dr.'s visits

Samantha had an ENT appointment yesterday and an endocrinology appointment today. Both went very well, neither wants to see her for 6 months, unless she gets sick and needs their services.
Samantha's A1C and glucose were taken today. Her A1C was 5.1 which is excellent and way down from her previous of 7.0 and 6.5 when she was sick in the hospital. The idea of insulin only when she is sick is still in the air and a decision will be made at each occurrence depending on her sugar levels.

Can you say a GOOD DAY at the Drs.

Samantha went to GI and Nutrition today and we have finally (at least for now) overcome her weight issue.She weighed in at 41 pounds which puts her at 49%, her height was 40.1 inches which is 4% and her BMI is an outstanding 92%!!!
She is doing so well weight wise that for now nutrition is stopping all Duocal during the day and cutting her down from 250 ml for the day feed to 180 ml.

I am so thrilled, it has taken us 5 years to get here, but she is finally on track. They are so happy with the way that she rebounded weight wise after being sick and losing 8 pounds.
