Grace had her quarterly endo appointment this afternoon. Things have been chugging along here... swim team, Barton camp next week, vacation the week after that. Her 90 day blood sugar average was pretty good so I expected a decent A1c. I'm EXTREMELY happy with the 6.3 result, especially since we've been able to decrease the number of lows she's had.
But the best part of the visit was while we were waiting in the play room for our appointment to begin. Grace was sitting at the craft table working on something. Next to her was a boy who looked to be either slightly older, or very tall for his age. After downloading the numbers from her pump, the nurse returned the pump to Grace and she reconnected. A few minutes later her pump chimed, to alert her that she forgot to un-suspend it. At the sound, both Grace and the boy next to her simultaneously looked to their left hips to check if it was them making the noise. The boy looked at Grace and asked who it was, because it didn't seem to be him. Grace, beet red, acknowledged it was, in fact, her.
I couldn't help but laugh... the sight of two heads moving in unison to the alert from an insulin pump was priceless.
The administrator of the play room said it happens all the time :)
