Hi Reed- The high bs # is from the cortisone injections. I had the same reaction with cortisone a few years ago. I read what Marie wrote, but don't let it go too long with the high BS. When you take insulin for dinner, if the # is still very high, take an extra unit or 2 of the Novolog. I have taken Novolog, it works just like Humalog and Apidra. Hope you had a great time at your TOPS Christmas party.
hello Reed, wow, that is a high number. I'm with Doris, take it easy and since you are not used to correcting highs, AND you are new to Novolog, I'd call the doctor and ask him about it. you might want to do some extra testing today, and be very careful about the carbs. I know you're at a holiday party right now. let me know what you had to eat. also, try to drink lots of water when you have those high numbers. it really dehydrate you. I hope you can rest this afternoon. I know how it really wears you out. bg 145 here.
Good Morning Mr Gator. Kathy gave you our weather report. Kinda dreary but I will take it over snow and it will make our winter now a little shorter. Went to my brothers last night for supper. I dont talk to much to him but he called me out of the blue. I started praying the Rosary and the Chaplet so maybe God is helping to heal that relationship. Anyways I have my class tonight at the Parish so I am studying my lesson now for that. Bye for now
Hi Reed. Nearly 40 degrees here today, but the air was very damp. Several of the outlying schools ran their buses 2 hours late because of dense fog. I had a lovely dinner at the Indian restaurant - we split a sampler plate that did have some goat meat on it. It was very savory. Then they brought rice pudding for dessert, but I only had a spoonful.
Now I'm watching some Christmas choirs on public television.
I've had a long day and hopefully can catch a few winks tonight. Hope you do too!
I would just wait for a little while and see what happens with ur bs. I wouldn't take any more right now. I can't use humalog so I use novalog all the time. I'm thinking that ur bs's went up b/c of those cortazone shots and I would be very afraid to tell u to take a shot right now, it might cause u to go too low. It just takes awhile for it to get back down after a steroid shot. Yes coratzone is a steroid. I hope I helped in someway there.
hi Reed, yes, I am no longer president. I am now a trustee, and about to co-chair Service Projercts. I want to get members more fired up about Service Projects. We do the quilts of valor and other charity quilt. today we gave the county social services 32 quilts for kids, along with a bunch of other goodies. our members are so generous. they gave me a big gift certificate to a fabric store, this is unprecedented. I got a standing ovation from all 98 who came, and received many many wonderful comments on how I run things. of course I cried. the food was good, so I guess that's why my bg now is 176. will be walking that off.
Hello Gator, I love your Christmas tree. It is so pretty. I love leaving the lights shining at night in a dark room. It is so pretty, almost mesmerizes me, ha, I am easily entertained. I did get my Christmas tree done and it is pretty this year. We are getting colder weather here now. There is frost all over the grass this morning, but lots of bright sunshine. It is busy in my neck of the woods. Today I get to go to a training on "Ten ways to be Happy" and I am looking forward to this and taking a break from the work day. Tomorrow two days of training, start of a new electronic health record. Everything in the clinic will be on a new Web based system by February. I hope that you have fun at your Christmas party tomorrow. I think that angel you bought sounds so lovely. I like things like that too. She is lucky that you drew her name. I wonder what you are going to get for a present? Have a great day, my friend.

I sent you a Christmas card Mr Gator. Thank you for your address. You should have mine now. We may get some snow on Wednesday now. Weather is kinda dreary but I will take it over last year when we had over 16 inches of fresh snow. This will make our winter seem shorter. Last year was a long haul until spring. I have started reading Bishop Sheen books now and really enjoy them. I bet you remember him.
Hello Reed, Hope you are well. I am getting excited for Christmas cuz I know my boys will all be home. Saddened to hear about your friend. We just lost an elderly neighbor. He was 90 and had Alzheimers. He used to be a Police LT. Sad. Always sad especially around the Holidays. I think often of Pete's friend Ricky and how hard these Holidays are for his parents. I pray for them every day. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. They must be helping. I'm feeling better. It's a week now and I get to progress from clear liquids. So tomorrow I start with cream of wheat .... after 2 weeks on liquids that sounds as good as steak, lol. The pain is subsiding to bearable with no pain meds. My BS has yet to go above 112. And I'm off all my Diabetes meds plus ones for cholesterol, GERD and for some reason even my allergies have cleared up. No complications with breathing this time thank goodness. I think I'm over the hump = ) <3 <3 Joanne
Hi Reed - a good day today. D went okay. Temp was close to 40 degrees and I walked home without my gloves on. Just finished my cards and now have 4 gifts to wrap and will have to go to Mall of America to get special doll clothes for my niece.
I was thinking about how nice it is not to be at work this time of year, because all we'd do was eat. The mutual fund companies would send us huge tins of peanut brittle, carmelcorn, cookies,chocolates, etc. Everyone would graze all day. I think it took away some of the stress we felt with year-end deadlines.
Then, the week before Christmas we'd have "foodfest" and everyone would bring potluck items so there'd be lots of cheeses, dips, chips, crackers, and, of course, sweets. We'd put away everything in the afternoon and then get it out again the next morning. The lunchroom was littered with crumbs and leftovers. I get a headache just thinking about it.
Tomorrow night a friend and I are having an early holiday celebration at an east Indian restaurant. They have both goat and yak meat, but I think I'll stick with chicken.
Oh seems like everybody's having a soggy cold day today dosen't it??? U know I never understood all that stuff that some parents let their kids do either. Sad really sad and it is so close to Christmas too. U know that the mom & dad will have a bad Christmas this year. Christmas was my mom's favorite time of year. She went all out for it. The decorations, the Christmas decorated shirts or sweaters and she bought atleast 2 presents for everybody she knew. Her Christmas Tree always had many packages under it. She also help all the organazitons with the homeless the chirlren who wouldn't have gotten anything if not for the Madison County Sherrif's office (She was a DEputy & also a cook at the Madison County Penal Farm here in Jackson) She just loved Christmas...She passed away on Jan 9th from Pancreatic Cancer (it will be 9 years this January) My dad's b-day was on Jan 1st So at her last Christmas she was in a hospital bed at home and had lost like 110 pounds due to the cancer. They had quit giving her the chemo treatments in November of that year b/c it just wasn't doing any good. She loved to cook these gigantic meals for the family and my dad's brother & sisters my g-mother, me, my kids, and kenneth were all there for this last Christmas with her (the dr had told us she probably wouldn't make it til Febuary so we all knew it was the last one we would have with her. She as I said was lying in bed and insisting that she had to get to the kitchen to cook. (she was kinda out of it from the pain meds)we all told her to lay back and let us do the cookuing anyway out of nowhere she held her arm like she was holding a big bowl and with her ther hand she was stirring up some concostion in the imaganary bowl. My aunt and I ask her what she was doing and she looked at us like we had lost our minds and said "You idiots I'm stirring up the cake to put in the oven" My aunt and I looked at each other and at the sametime said "You go ahead and fix our cake for us and we'll enjoy it when it's done" She was the happiest she had been in a month when she thought she was helping us out. Not long after that she went to sleep but that memory stands out in my mind. She just loved cooking and would come up with some really strange stuff but it was always good. Christmas is nothing like it used to be with her here with us.....I guess what I'm trying to say (in a round about way here) is that kinda made me think about Christmas and every year it's kinda a double edged sward with me. Just missing her bad today for some reason.
Hi Reed- Your tree is beautiful. Your ornaments are very nice..Are they old and have special meaning to you ? Sorry to hear about your election friend passing. Jim is the Judge of Elections for our voting district for the past three years. He likes it except the hours ( 5:30AM to 11:00PM.) It is quite chilly here, was in the 20's last night. No rain or snow predicted for the week. I had a 36 yesterday morning, I actually felt fine. I must be an alien D. Enjoy your tree. Cat
