Good news!

Today I went to my family doctor for a re-check of my regular lab tests (A1C and lipids). I now officially have "normal" blood work results! My A1C was 6.1 (no longer diabetic) cholesterol was 160, and lipids were 176. I have never had results like this even when I was taking medication! My doctor also said that he expects my numbers to drop even more since a more accurate reading would need to be at least 3 months post-op and because I continue to lose weight. I just can't explain how happy I am to hear these results. I had been a diabetic for 10 years! I feel so blessed!

Sorry for going MIA for a week, but it's been hectic. I will attempt another post or 2 or 3 :O) this week to make up for lost posts!
