Poppin' My Balloon

I had my quarterly check-up with my family physician today. I'd been sort of dreading it because my A1C level was pretty high last time. I've been watching my glucose levels a lot closer recently and guessed that it would probably be lower than my last check-up, but wasn't certain how low. Target for A1C is 7. Imagine my pride when the doctor popped into the exam room and announced my A1C was 6.8. 

Then he asked "how much blood did they give you during your kidney surgery?"

"I don't know," I answered, "I have a followup with the surgeon tomorrow and can find out."

"Do that," he replied, "this is probably the blood of somebody else."
