Numbers are down....

Monday, August 25, 2014

Had a doctor's appointment last week and found out that all my labs were great, even lost 5 lbs. He reduced my blood pressure medication... emoticon
But on the bad side , my blood sugar is too low and he encouraged me to eat more. emoticon But the right things. That is going to be very hard , because most days at work, I work right thru lunch or don't have time to eat. But now I pack a healthy snack and eat in between patients.
I also changed my diet plan to the diabetic plan , which seems to help, but at the end of the day I still have a lot of calories left.

    WOW, it's great that the meds are starting to decrease. emoticon
Can't wait til mine do. and I understand the lows of your glucose. Bananas with peanut/cashew or almond butter would really, really be a great snack and maintain blood sugar levels. emoticon And as far as eating more, try to at least reach the lowest level amount of your calories allotted. emoticon

    Sounds like you're doing great. Eating small amounts a little more often may be just what the doctor ordered for you.

STARTING OVER....

Thursday, July 10, 2014

I am just disgusted with myself. I gained a lot of weight back,I could blame it on stress. But I know I have been slacking with my exercise and late night snacking.
I have 50 lbs before and I will do it again.
My husband is helping me again and he is looking to loose about 30 lbs. So we will be exercising more and getting rid of all the junk food in the house. emoticon emoticon

    I figure on this healthy lifestyle journey we all hit bumps in the road (heck, I've wandered off the road ENTIRELY before!). The IMPORTANT thing is that we pick ourselves back up and continue to head in the right direction. It sounds like that is EXACTLY what you're doing. Know there are lots of us right alongside you, cheering you on!

time to take it easy......

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

The doctor put me on the pasture for a couple days. I got a pinched sciatic nerve in my back. The pain is bad , going all the way down to my toes.
So I am sitting at home, staying off my feet and get bored out of my mind.
Going back to the doctor on Friday and hopefully he releases me to go back to work on Sunday.
Also got my new T-shirt today , at least something good happened.

    Getting past the nauseating backdrop of your page (Squealers...) to be impressed you can spell sciatic. Feel better soon!

2014....

Thursday, January 09, 2014

So far this new year has not been so great. My father-in-law, whom I love dearly was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and the doctor gives him about 2 months. He is taking it pretty good, but the rest of the family is freaking out. I am trying to be the calm one and they are upset about that. But they don't realize that I see and deal with this every single day in my job as Hospice Nurse. I am being realistic and want him to have the best time for the last couple weeks.
So I am trying to stay strong for my family and still keep on sparking. I am so grateful for my friends that are standing with me through all the good and bad times.

    I am every impressed that you can perform in such an emotional profession with such fortitude. Good for you; I would be unable to. Very sorry to hear of your F-I-L too; that never is easy even when one is not connected to the person. Good luck that that, sincerely.

And now I close my note to you as I close all of them:

    This is difficult - I would think even though you deal with end-of-life issues every day, it brings a whole new dynamic when it is someone you're close to. You have a better idea than most what to expect. Just remember to reach out if YOU need support!
