A trip to the doctor

Ryann had her 5 year (get ready for Kindergarten) check up. She is looking great! She is in the 75th percentile in height and weight. The doctor said she is looking good and that her AIC looked really good for a little girl her age. She had to get 5 shots today and while she gets 4 shots everyday for her diabetes...these shots hurt a little bit more. Ryann was so brave though, she just sat in my lap and whimpered while she was getting them. She kept telling me that these ones hurt! She cheered up some though when they brought in the sugar-free suckers and some stickers for her to choose from. Ryann is actually the reason they started having sugar-free suckers at the doctor's office. Not too long after she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes we were in the doctor's office for a check up and the nurse asked if she could have a sucker. We asked them if they had sugar-free ones and the nurse didn't know...she had to go ask around and found out that they didn't. I than heard her say to some of the other nurses that they need to have sugar-free on hand now for their diabetic paitents!

So anyways, she is right on track for everything and looking good! I promised her that maybe we could go and get slurpies after lunch since she was such a brave little girl getting her shots. We have a 7-11 just down the road from us, so we like to walk over occasionally and get a treat and the good news is that they have a sugar-free slurpie (well atleast they did last time we were there!) So I hope they still have it, I might have to talk to the management about them keeping a sugar-free one.
