What's the Point?

Posted by Tiki on August 21, 2014 at 3:06am 0 Comments

August 20th is always a difficult day to get through. This day is my dad's birthday, he would have been 75 this year. My dad's death had a hugely negative impact on me, not just because I lost my father whom I love so much, but also because he died from complications of a disease we both shared.

Had. my. surgery

Posted by Sensorium139 on August 20, 2014 at 9:39pm 1 Comment

So far, not too bad recovery wise. I thought i couldn't breathe after anesthesia, but fine now. I had to fight for lantus as my current nurse refused based on lows in the morning, despite easy correction and great numbers all day. Had to beg a doctor for 5 units, won then. They also refused to do an insulin to carb ratio, only sliding scale. Hospitals are the worst.
