Week 6 day 4 Diabetes Challenge Low Carb style!

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Yesterday was like no other day. Our group home gal MA came home.

She almost didn't. Her family hates us so much they threatened us. I was going to let MA go away just to get them off my back. Tom told her she was not coming to her home of 26 years, she was going to a re-hab. She cried. Then he explained her sisters didn't like us- and she said "Then I don't like my sisters!" We gave in, we brought her home. 10 minutes later a sister and her husband were on our porch ready to fight. Just what I did not want my kids to see. Thank goodness God took over after my weeks of prayers and sleepless nights. He gave me the words to calm them. And one out of 7 (more siblings) was won!!

This afternoon I decided to go a step further- call and invite a different sister who hates us to visit. She was taken off guard and very happy! She's coming soon. OY!! Am I a glutton for punishment! LOL!! Anyhow they know NOTHING about us after 26 years! And they think we are taking MA from them. Gee maybe if you visit her more than 3X a year?

So yesterday there were nurses, OT, PT and rehab specialists here ALL day. By 4:30 p.m I was going to literally die from exhaustion. I fell asleep. The only thing I had eaten was a small bowl of hamburger with mustard. I was too tired to be hungry! But it may have been the reason for my headache!

If I had not been doing LC I would have never made it to 4:30 even! (I had been up since 2 the night before) I have so much more energy- I feel 50 again! LOL!! (I'm 56)

My blood sugars aren't rising and falling- I'm super woman!

    OYA! That's tough. You're dealing with it SO calmly and so well though; I'm the girl who lets people antagonise me and then I never back down LOL I should learn a lesson here.
    I'm so so glad to hear MA is back home now! Been really keeping you all in my thoughts. Keep us posted with her progress xxx

    Best of luck! Hopefully you can win them over one by one and be able to do what's best for MA. What is her prognosis now?
