yep. Lots of changes. I had one of the only home use glucose meters anyone had seen at the Joslin Clinic when I was diagnosed. My dad bought it for me and it was hundreds of dollars. Everyone else in the clinic was peeing on a stick!
i've had this for 23 days now.. well since diagnosed, and have been in the hospital twice for 5 days. first they diagnosed me with type 2, why i dont know, they sent me home with a diet but wasnt helping and had to go back and of course i have type 1.. it all happened soo fast!!!! so much info in 2 day.. carb counting what?... insulin shots!!?! :o
highs, lows.. my life changed, and well now i have to get used to it
thank you very much Doris, I am new to all this and I have to say i've never met someone with diabetes in my life, well not until now, I have, always thought of it as something that could happen to others but never me since i dont have any family history. It is great to get in touch with people that are going through the same and learn more about it! :)
Good Morning,Doris. I have not heard so I assume you are at your Grand mothers. I woke up with a splitting headache. I rarely get them. I dreamed my kidneys failed and I turned yellow. What is up with that? Russ goes this morning to have blood tested I hope itdropped as you should not be off COUMADAN too long. My BG 97, I do the TOPS program Wed so I better rattle and get something together. How are you feeling? Your readings still good? Still hot ther? It is like a broken record here high 90's and humid. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
aww thank you Doris, I dunno... when the a/c stopped she was like "out of here" so I might want ot stay in shape ;-) actually she's had the car 11 years and cried - so I am exaggerating a bit! Have to get something bigger for her anyway, 1 baby comes with 1100 pounds of gear every time you want ot go to the park! yes stay COOL today, hoping the weather breaks and there aren't any tornados. it's been brutal for the last 4-5 days. We all have a summer cold now anyway so we're staying in. darned summer cold.....
hi Doris, how are you today? don't forget to drink lots of water. hey, I'm going to try to get Joe to bring his family up to the fair this year. I think little Jimmy would get a big kick out of some of the animals, and they have tons of stuff for the little ones. I'm going to be with the quilts there almost the whole 10 days it's on. it's about the biggest thing to do around here all year, and it is the real State Fair, only 5 min from my house! hope we get all this heat out of town before Aug5th. bgnow 126, but I think I just ruined that.
hey Doris, hope you are well. let's see, Ive been back to work and then went on ANOTHER vacation (you'd think I was the president or something). James loves the beach, this time it was the jersey shore! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxUey_tE9AU we're home now. looking for another car for momma, her's is old now and the a/c just broke. I hope she doesn't dump ME as easily when I get old HA
Thank God Doris there is Peace in Seagate this morning. Russ was so happy he got to see an internist who said STOP THE COUMADAN. His own doctor was in Atlanta and the girl in the office told him to stay on it. His nose cancer all cut out so he does not have to have any more done. I am sitting hre with my chef's hat on waiting for Tom he is out running in this heat. He will want Reed's breakfast. How are you doing? It sounds like you have your readings back to normal. It is too hot to do anything but I do need to do grocery shopping. Have a great day take good car of yourself and stay cool. HUGS,Reed
Doris...tssk tssk tssk....stop beating yourself up!!!! We all need to be able to LET LOOSE and vent...Holy Moley!!! I would have done the same. I rant and rave on such a regular basis, that my family thinks there's something wrong when I DON'T!! ;P
I've been holed up in the house here...with my beloved (ac). My gosh, I don't know....I really DON'T know how I'd survive without it! Glad I wasn't born 100 years ago!
Like a fool, I was out for oh...no more than a half hour this afternoon, weeding. Thought I was low, sweat pouring off me...but no, I was at 8(144). So crawled back into my lair for air!!!
Might have been the asthma...that too causes you to break out in a sweat when you're having an attack...took a couple puffs! It rained today....5 drops!!! It's overcast though....and "they" say we should expect a thunderstorm on Sunday. However..."they" are frequently wrong! You're having a heat wave too, right? So here's a little something to cool off.......feel better now?? luv...linda
Hello Doris. You still doing ok. Yesterday was a day from hell for me. Between Russ's eye and my tiooth I was nuts. My cavity was under a crown and he dug and dug my jaw was so sore. The doctor saw Russ's eye definite too much COUMADAN what does he do? Stay on the same dose and see me in a week. My Bg ok I am ok but weary. Headline this morning HAZY HOT AND HUMID. Your readings good? I bet you are glad to be back pumping. You babysitting these days? Take good care of yourselfand keep COOL. Take care care. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Doris. Marie and I am in the same boat we are going to the dentist UGH. STRESS =BG 142. Russ's eye looks awful and now it is turning purple on the outside a sure sign of COUMADAN. He is at the doctors NOW. I think they need to lower his dose. 97 degrees here. Where is this heat coming from? I have had my central air on since May. Russ is now worried he is going to have purple blotches on his face. I hope now with the pump you can relax and have good numbers. I had 2 cousins I had not heard from in centuries for centuries and dump their woes on me. I am ready for the looney bin. Have a great day and keep cool and keep Peace in the Valley. HUGS,Reed
