Not House

I had grand plans for my post on Thursday. It revolved around today’s appointment with Dr. H (not House). Then my camera imploded and the footage I had captured after my bloodwork last Friday turned into a pixelated nightmare. So instead of a video, you get the transcript. Today at least.

This post is scheduled to be published at 9:30am. My appointment with Not House is at 11:30. This means that twitter will likely update everyone reading this with my latest A1c. Because it’s all about the f*$%ing A1c isn’t it?

I know I’m preaching to the choir, but now that I am in more control than I was a year ago I hate the A1c with each successive appointment. I am working my ass off, but if my doctor doesn’t see an improvement in that single number in the 15 minutes we spend together then I get another lecture about the risks and blah blah blah.

I’m not doing Not House justice. He’s good people. He was very patient with me while I was on the road and my management was less than stellar. I hope I correctly sensed some pride when I came back after my renaissance with dramatically improved control across the board at the beginning of the year. I know I only see him 2-4 times a year, but I don’t dread my appointments with him.

Six months ago when I came in with an A1c of 8.0 (from 11.3, 8 months prior) I was hoping he would ask me what had changed so I could tell him about twitter, about my blog, about all of you. Kind of like showing off something to a parent, I wanted him to be proud of me. I don’t need his approval or anything but I wanted to see if he was aware that the Internet can have a huge impact on Diabetic veterans and noobs alike. There’s so much I want to ask him about. Does he read and/or recommend any patient blogs to his patients. Does he have any online resources that I am not familiar with. Anything to improve communication between people in the know and people still looking for answers.

I know I’m not big time, but this blog has done a lot for me. You’ll have to excuse my sense of pride for the duration of this post.

Anywho. Aside from the dreadded A1c, I DO have a purpose with this appointment. I think I need to change my Lantus dosage. Details will come after I get some answers from a “medical professional.” You’ll just have to come back tomorrow for the goods.

If you are extra nice, there may be video involved too.
