Endo visit already?

It seems like we just had a visit and here we are our 3 month visit again. Already!

From what I have read online through the DOC (diabetes online community) some most endo offices have an A1C checker in the office that only needs a finger prick. How I would love one of these amazing machines in our endo's office. we don't have the technology and they don't plan on getting it. I think I ask every time if they are even thinking about it because blood work SUCKS!

Blood Work nightmare.....

 We have to go for blood work every 3 months and this past time it was a nightmare.  The vampire
drawing the blood was moving the needle around in his arm I believe they call that fishing. He starts crying. kicking, screaming and yelling for me to make her stop. I didn't know if I should calm him down just to get it over with, or punch this nurse and tell her I wanted someone else to do it, and  if I went that road will he even let someone else finish? All these thoughts running through my mind while holding his legs from kicking and his other arm from punching her himself. I heard the praises when she finally got it. Needless to say we didn't walk out of there happy.  And that alone makes me angry because our last blood work he did so well no tears at all.   

so we go to our visit and we hear  "they didn't pull labs on his a1c your going to have to go back and get it done again" 

We are going to have it done but waiting a week or so, hopefully the nightmare of our last labs wont be so bad and we wont have another nightmare experience.

Honestly I kind of liked the appointment because neither of us knew that "grade" what was the number what could it be. We went over his pump upload did some adjustments and off we went.  No stress of the a1c at all.. Cant all appointments be like this? Ok maybe not all but 80% of them :)
