I went back to the doctor today and my shoulder xray showed the tendonitis and arthritis in it. It feels better and I can move it now. The best thing I have lost 49 pounds at the doctors scale and my A1C was only 5 so he discontinue my diabetes injection. I have to keep track of my blood sugar very closely but for now I am off it-yeah my health is getting better and I still have 96 pounds to go yet.My cholesterol was only 149 but my thyroid is still a little wacky.My urinary track infection is getting better also and I am going to be on low dose antibiotics to prevent another one from starting. He was very please and he feels if I keep losing weight and exercising that I may not need my oxygen anymore at some point- Oh that would be so nice to be able to breath without shortness of breath again but thats to look forward to in the future but I see a light at the end of the tunnel.To be free of injections everyday I am thrilled to death!!God has been watching over me.I am thankful to you all my friends for giving me encouragement and praying for me. you are all awesome. I still haven't heard about my back yet but I am praying it's ok and I won't need surgery.will keep you posted on that when I find out.I am so happy and doing well.
