Great appointment

Today we saw Dr Cavale. Liver, Kidney, cholesterol, and blood pressure all perfect. A1C was 6.6%!!!! seems that changing the site for the pump to his leg did wonders. So exciting!! We also talked to him about the artificial pancreas and about how a type 1 pancreas functions. He taught us that just the "tail" of Vince's pancreas is not working, the rest of it still functions in breaking down fat for the body, so it isn't just taking up room in his belly!!we also went to see Dr Antelo because the topamax is causing horrible stomach pains. We expressed that Lyrica is the only thing that helps. He suggested taking a low dose every day. We agreed that should help. Great day!
