I guess it takes a lot to get me to blog these days! Life has been very full and busy. :)
But I have some wonderful news that I just had to share with the DOC. Adam had his quarterly endo appointment today, and I was STUNNED to hear that Adam's A1C was 6.9.
That is the lowest he has ever been, and I've had a perma-grin on my face ever since. It's funny how such things can make you so happy. I believe his last A1C was 7.6 or so.
I'm sure that at our next appointment, the number will be up again with the holidays rolling around, but for now, I'm going to bask in the glow of Adam's first A1C under 7.0. :)
We do have two other issues we are looking into (it's always something, isn't it?) The first thing is that Adam has had some wicked B.O. the last few weeks. Is that TMI? I'm sure he'll kill me when he's older. But...from what I understand, 5 year olds should not have that kind of stench. Even active little boys like mine. He doesn't have any other symptoms of precocious puberty, but his endo is doing a bone x-ray anyway just to check it out. I fully expect it to be fine, but I figure since he sees an endo regularly anyway, I thought I should mention it.
The other thing is from his labs - it turns out he has a very low IgA level and could be IgA deficient. Does anyone know anything about this? I read that kids born with low IgA levels are more prone to autoimmune diseases (um, duh...already got that one covered!)
I know that a low IgA level could point to Celiac, but he did test negative, even after looking at the IgG levels. So, at this point there is no Celiac. His endo said that having a low IgA level could just mean that he is going to be more susceptible to illnesses, but luckily (knock on wood) so far he's been healthy. Anyway, just curious if any of your kiddos have tested low for this.
Other than that, things are chugging along around here. Can you believe it is almost NOVEMBER? Yikes.
We are loving our little kitty - she is so much fun! The kids adore her and she's been a nice addition to our family.
