1- He's conquering his school & work- both FULL time- like a champion! He works all day, goes to school all night, & is still the fun loving, light hearted, playful man I've always known! He's not just handling all the extra stress well, he's excelling- he got straight A's last semester & is on the same track this semester & he's one of the best employees at work (he wins every competition they have)... I guess OCD does come in handy sometimes ;)! But seriously, to me, that's a really big accomplishment !
2- He had his quarterly diabetes check up today & his A1C (a test that shows what his average blood sugar levels are over an extended time period) was the lowest it's been since he was diagnosed- it was 7.3, the lowest it's been in 14 YEARS (it's usually been around a 9 or 10)!!! & his endocrinologist is now trying to get him approved for an insulin pump... if all goes well, he could be shot FREE in the next week or 2!!! This is a MAJOR step for him, & I'm SO proud!!
3- He remembers what's most important in life and prioritizes accordingly. He's busier than he's ever been in all the years we've been together (with work, school, church callings, helping coach wrestling, and taking the time to take care of himself) yet I don't really feel like Roman & I are deprived of quality time with him. He always takes time to play with Roman, to help me around the house, to show up at Dr. appointments for me & Roman, or just to do little things like hug us & tell us he loves us. I don't know how he balances everything so perfectly, but I'm grateful he does!
Anthon, I love you!! Congrats on all you're accomplishing, babe!
