I went in for a routine physical last week and received a call from Dr. B's office this afternoon with my lab results. The voice on the other end of the line said to me, urgently, "Dr. B wants you to see an endocrinologist. You have an A1C of 5.9."
She said this as though it were a bad thing. I, on the other hand, had to swallow back my excitement before replying, "Thank you, but I'm already under the care of an endocrinologist. I have diabetes."
So funny how her grave news was my great news.
