Happy New Year!!

To all my friends at tudiabetes.com, I want to wish you a safe and prosperous new year. May 2009 be more that you hoped for!



Kids are coming over this evening, so we'll be snacking and watching other folks out on the town! I don't think I've been out on NYE for 3 or 4 years now. Guess I should get a girlfriend so I'd have someone to go with. LOL, I haven't been out with a woman that wasn't a member of my immediate family for I don't know how long. Maybe I should make that a… Continue

I always forget the post title...

Well, I hope everyone survived the holiday season relatively intact. I use the word "relatively" because we can't choose our relatives and, honestly, are all these body parts really needed?



We managed to get thru the season here. Had a white Christmas, little freezing rain, a thunderstorm that had hellacious straight line winds and 60 degrees the day after Christmas.



My sugars ran high most of the weekend, but I know I was being conservative on carb counting and mealtimes… Continue

Holy Snikees!

Wow, my new CDE just called me, out of the blue, to follow up with me on our appointment from a couple of days ago! Very pleasant surprise, never had that type of interest from the other one before. There may be hope for my needy self after all!



The change from Humalog to Novalog seems to have been the key to all this actually starting to work. I am getting much more consistent delivery now I think. My A1c in October was 7.7, Tuesday's was 6.7. And that was with almost the entire… Continue

It's a cold, snowy day in KC... 15 degrees F, slick roads and it's Tuesday. I never really liked Tuesdays, they are always worse than Mondays to me, but oh well I had my first appointment with my ne…

I had my first appointment with my new CDE today. I liked her, she took the time to sit and discuss with me what was going on. My A1c was 6.7, down from 7.7 in October, so that was good. Maybe the pump has actually been doing some good! I'm glad I stuck with it, I was about to have a re-boxing party and be done with… Continue

la~la~ la~la~

Well, after speaking to a 2nd CDE at my endo's office on Thursday and Friday, my 1st CDE game me a call on Monday afternoon (this was after not returning a call from the previous Tuesday). I had spoken to the office manager on Thursday, expressed my frustration, and was told she'd talk to the 1st one. The manager hadn't spoken to her by the time I was called, so I told her that I was frustrated because she hadn't returned my call on Tuesday and no one else had picked up her… Continue

And it really wasn't one of my snarkier comments, but the check's in the mail kids, check's in the mail.. lol. Also thanks to Sue at… Continue
