Thu, 4 Dec 2014 12:44:34 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5826993 Back to work today and we are going to be busy. Hubby's sugar levels this morning were 6.6 which is good I have increased his insulin to 18 units so I am hoping it stays goog fingers crossed. Wed, 3 Dec 2014 12:49:12 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5826466 I am sitting here this morning as I am on leave today as our list was cancelled and I am frozen for Summer it is so cold I can't believe it. Tue, 2 Dec 2014 14:58:12 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5825803 We are now into Summer but you would not think so as it was quite cold this morning and yesterday it was warm but the wind was cold, I hope it warms up soon as so far I have not been able to go around without a sweat shirt on. Mon, 1 Dec 2014 12:44:12 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5825175 The nurse rang last night and she said that they will have to change his insulin for him as it is not doing what it is suppose to be doing, she has already refereed him to a Diabetic Dr. so he has towait until he sees him as she herself cannot change it. Sun, 30 Nov 2014 12:33:45 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5824855 Still can't sort these blood sugars out tried to contact the diabetic nurse yesterday, but hopefully she will contact me tomorrow.

Nearly the end of another month and not even 1 month now to Christmas and I have done no shopping oh well that would be the story of my life as I am always busy doing other things. Thu, 27 Nov 2014 12:38:41 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5823350 Another busy day today, I am so tired as when I finish work at 5:00 pm catch the shuttle back here takes 20 min. then get home do the lunches for the next day and cook tea it is after 7:00 pm by the time I sit down to relax it is 7:30. Wed, 26 Nov 2014 12:45:20 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5822809 It is the week of the Gastro conference so because most of the Dr's are going we have closed down out here so I have to go to the other hospital. My manager wanted me to go to the conference this year because it is held here in Auckland, but because hubby has been sick I did not bother to put my name down, so that is why I have to work over there. Tue, 25 Nov 2014 12:32:40 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5822275 Had my appointment for my hand yesterday and the Dr. is going to do steroid injections again to see how that goes before he tries any thing else he used a lot of big names that I don't know what they are but he is the surgeon so see how they go. I am hoping the injections will get rid of the pain as at night time it just throbs. Mon, 24 Nov 2014 12:44:56 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5821666 My day off today I am very tired went down to the farm yesterday and hubby did not eat or drink all the time we were there even though he was asked if he wanted anything so when we got home checked his blood sugar and they were over 16 which was not good. Sun, 23 Nov 2014 14:10:08 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5821144 Just watching the rugby game between the All Blacks and Wales and the All Blacks are in the lead 34 to 16, have been for my walk and our youngest son is going to pick us up and we are going down to our other sons farm. Sat, 22 Nov 2014 14:21:49 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5820811 Today has turned out to be a lovely day it was suppose to rain because I went for my walk early for that reason but you cannot predict the weather. Fri, 21 Nov 2014 19:43:46 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5820112 My son from Hamilton had to go up to Albany yesterday and today so instead of going all the way home he came and stayed with us it was great to catch up. I have just found out that we are going to keep our place out here instead of going over to the other hospital great news as it would have been a lot harder for me to go there every day, as I only live 5 min. away from here so lets hope they start doing more cases here. Thu, 20 Nov 2014 12:43:11 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5819534 What a day yesterday was, we were really busy, in the afternoon the Dr, did 3 procedures that I had never seen before they were very interesting to watch its amazing what new technics they can do now. Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:02:37 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5818930 I am at the other hospital today as we don't have a list and just been told the person that I am suppose to be working with is not in today and the list is big so I hope they give me someone who knows what they are doing. Tue, 18 Nov 2014 12:34:19 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5818340 We spent most of yesterday afternoon at a meeting which I'm not complaining about, but the meeting was about doing away with this theatre where we work and I enjoy it here and taking it to the main hospital which is going to take thousands of dollars to refurbish the old theatres over there then they have to tak over all this equipment from here and setting it up over there and even then they cannot guarantee that they will not pull down the old theatres in due course so my way of thinking is... Mon, 17 Nov 2014 12:52:14 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5817741 Gee we are already past half way through this month then December it does not seem that long ago from last Xmas, the year has just flown by with all the things that have happed this year will be behind us next year.

Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5816184 Hubby has an appointment today with the diabetic nurse so I will pop up there to see what she has to say It is quite good with being here as the clinics are just up the stairs so it only takes me a couple of minutes to get there and he is the first one on the list so there should be no waiting time. Thu, 13 Nov 2014 12:34:12 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5815541 I am over at the other hospital today I hate it over there as it is so unorganized its not funny you never know where you are there is no communication with us to let us know what is happening and that is why I hate it out here every thing is so organized right down to even if I have problems with the machine because you guessed it we communicate. Wed, 12 Nov 2014 12:40:11 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5814901 Another busy day today in total we have 16 patients we have a slow Dr. this morning and a fast one this afternoon.

Sat, 8 Nov 2014 19:31:29 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5812758 A lovely day today went out shopping early before it got to hot went looking for a cook book for diabetes thought it would help so I knew what hubby could eat as yesterday morning his blood sugar was 14.1 and that was the early morning one so the diabetes nurse said to increase his insulin to 18 units.
