So what is your A1C results? Oh come on...you can tell me =) wink
I had been pretty busy lately, keeping my hubby company, like a chaperone, LOL. He just signed a contract with NBA Philippines as voice talent and he has been recording in Solar studios. With the strike going on...he has been doing some WNBA stuffs promotions and advertisements. Pretty boring stuffs for me...but playing over the computer or with my phone keeps me busy LOL
Other than that, things are pretty good...has been raining here with typhoons in and out the country for 3 weeks now. My scales are growing longer and my gills and fins are gearing up for floods! LOL One thing I love about the rain is that it gets very cool here to 79F. Not much but here, its a treat since it doesn't happened often.
How have you been doing? Its been pretty hot there I heard...
Open mouth, insert foot!! You just gotta know by now that you never mention anything you don't wish a DR to act on. Considering you past nursing eduction, I am surprised at you!!! LOL!
I am now going back to my pre-nursing home DR and got cornered into setting an appointment myself! It's been years since my last breast crushing, more than that for my coloscopy (polyps history), and not as bad for the GYN thingie! I dread the day when my pump is due to croak because I can't afford to replace it.
Look for my blog or discussion in the very near future.
Good Morning, Doris. How are you doing? I know you see the doctor today. I hope he is not too rough on you. Take questions you want answered. Not much news here as I did not leave the house yesterday. Russ is Russ but worse this morning. My BG was 83. We had Thunder but no rain. I have to get out today as I need things at the drug store. I hope your doctor's report is better than you think. Good luck. Take good care. I care. Hugs,Reed
Happy First Day of August,Doris. I hope it is a little cooler month. Although they say today will be 96 or better. I am feeling much better >Tom has gone home and Russ is Russ if you get my drift. My BG 113. I have no appointments today so I can stay home. I hope you continue to do well. Your numbers continue to be good. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Good Sunday Morning,Doris. Just back fro m church. All my patients doing well. I do not what got to my leg but bed rest did the trick. I think Florida knows no other than 90..it is 93 and it isn't even noon. Glad you went out to eat always a nice change of pace. Once Russ gets rid of the purple eye we will go out. BG 127. Hope your numbers re still good. Keep cool. I imagine TN is as hot as we are. HUGS,Reed
I know what that's like. just tell yourself to spend 10 or 15 minutes cleaning, and that's it! you may want to keep going after the ten min.
hey, we were setting up at the fair yesterday, and I was looking at my pump to see when I took my most recent bolus. another guy on the Home&Hobby committee, said "hey! another pumper!" and pulled out his Minimed pump. turns out he's had it for 40 years, almost as long as me. of course I gave him a TuDiabetes card. I'll be back there again today, my job is to accept the entries to our competitions, not just quilts, but all the handicrafts. some of this stuff is really cute, and imaginative. then there's the recycled art category. one girl made this great totebag crocheted from plastic bags, and another kid made a spaceship from an old hubcap and upside down bowl. then there's the giant 350 lb ball of tinfoil! I must take a picture of it, it will put a smile on your face. wearing my TuDiabetes tshirt today, maybe I will see another #pumpsighting
Thank-you Doris, As a newby, I look forward to meeting everybody and finding out that I'm really not alone and that there are many other approaches to controlling diabetes other than just mine.
I have been a type 1 diabetic for about 33 years and on the pump for about 6 years. While I'm in relatively good control, I'm getting older and that alone slows the healing processes and life in general. While as a Chaplain, I stay busy; nevertheless, my wife and I do get away some. Our kids and grandkids live abroad and we get to visit them regularly. Enough about me, I hope all is well with you. Thanks again for writing me.
