Sparkplug - Sorry about the snafu. You know, the techs are sometimes in such a big hurry that they get apathetic and sloppy. Like the time blood was spurting all over my shirt and nobody seemed to give a damn. Here is a pic of my arm one time when there was an infiltration. I told them immediately that it felt like something was wrong, but they poo pooed it.
I am so sorry that you are in pain. I hope you do get a picture up of your arm. Thanks so much for keeping us up on what is going on with your health so we can pray for you and send you positive vibes. Yesterday I had a 380 and then a 58, so I can relate to your low. I know what it feels like, waiting and waiting for the glucose to kick in. I usually have too much glucose and make things worse by ending up high. Are you still working as well? You are really a strong person. I hope you feel better. Where will they put your needle? Do you take any pain medicaton? I take Tramadol and it works for pain. I don't feel tired with it and I seem to have no side effects at all for once. Usually I do with any medication. I sure hope you heal fast. Take care. Lots
Hey BP - just wanted t stop by and say "hi". We may get a foot of snow over the next two days. I'll believe it when I see it! Just remembered, "BP" means I have to go take my blood pressure. I do it several times a week and put the numbers on a spreadsheet. My docs love it. I began doing this because I have "white coat syndrome" where my bp is high at the doc's office from being nervous. So there was always the tendency to increase my meds, and then I'd bottom out at home This way they get a more accurate pic.
Hope you have a good week ahead, my friend, and please greet SB for me.
Thanks for the welcome note. I've already got a target A1C from the medical office and I'll be no-solo. Biggest thing for me is to be assured that I can work without significant risk of a hypo. I seem to be pretty sensitive so far.
Thank you Brokenpole.It's a warm welcome. I am glad to learn from you and ask questions. I hope I will understand you all and you understand me. English is not my mother's language..........and eh.... I never use English, only on a holiday. But it's a good exercise.
Hello, my dear friend. Just wanted to see how you are doing. And wish you and the clan a good weekend! I can smell spring in the air. We've had a string of days above freezing, but I guess in for a temporary cold snap shortly. That, I can deal with
