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. Sun, 16 Nov 2014 12:28:57 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5817409 I am very tired today I could not sleep well as my hand has been throbbing all night I will be pleased when I get my appointment with the surgeon on the 24th, it just keeps sending a pain right up my arm. Sat, 15 Nov 2014 19:30:51 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5816908 Hubby's appointment went well yesterday they were very happy with the blood sugar levels as I had documented every thing and they said I had done a good job. Fri, 14 Nov 2014 19:57:23 EST Yah! 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. Tue, 11 Nov 2014 12:35:05 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5814250 Not far now to go for Xmas can't wait in the 2 week break I only have to do 2 days so I can put up with that they are both over at the other hospital. Our daughter wants us to go up to there farm up north so just might do that for a break. Mon, 10 Nov 2014 12:53:23 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5813690 Day off today went for my walk early as I have quite a lot to do even though hubby said to take things easy, got my son calling in this morning as I have got a lot of meat for there dogs they have 4 of them on the farm with hubby not feeling the best we have not been down there as we normally go down once a month and take the meat down to them. Sun, 9 Nov 2014 16:13:19 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5813245 Another lovely day it is quite warm but the pollens are making me have sinus problems, I can't stop sneezing. 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. Fri, 7 Nov 2014 19:07:12 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5811991 It was a very cold day yesterday I was on A/L and I did nothing all day I went for my walk, did my exercise and then nothing just a real relaxing day which I really think I needed hubby was at work but because he is only doing 6 hours he was home just after 12:30 pm. Thu, 6 Nov 2014 12:48:49 EST Appointment yesterday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5811385 Met up with my son at his appointment he was told if they drain the fluid off his knee it would only com back so further down the track they would probably have to operate on it so they decided to leave it at that at the moment. With mine they really don't want to do a reconstruction on it at the moment they are not sure what the swelling is and that the bone that the replacement is sitting on is starting to deteriate so will review it in a year. Wed, 5 Nov 2014 13:57:05 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5810716 I have my appointment for my knee this morning and my son rang last night to tell me he also has an appointment for his knee as they had a cancellation so his appointment is 09:30 am and mine is 10:50 am what a coincidence he only got a letter the other day to say he had to wait up to 6 months. Tue, 4 Nov 2014 12:53:22 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5810006 I have an appointment tomorrow with the orthopedic surgeon about my knee as it has quite sore since I had that procedure done early in the year, also have one for the hand surgeon on the 24 of this month as that has caused me a lot of pain as there are certain things I can't do with my hand as it is so sore. Mon, 3 Nov 2014 12:47:19 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5809337 Some one has asked me what is the All Blacks game well yesterday the All Blacks played America in Rugby and the All Blacks won 74-6 it was played in America to a packed stadium. Sun, 2 Nov 2014 12:39:47 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5808866 I don't know but hubby's sugars have gone up 17.1 he has not had any thing he should not have He did not even watch the whole game of the All blacks against America which he wanted to watch but decided to go and do the grocery shopping so he could walk around. Sat, 1 Nov 2014 19:19:25 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5808360 Had an appointment to get a cut and colour at the hairdresser this morning I needed one for awhile but with hubby not feeling well did not get round to it. Fri, 31 Oct 2014 21:25:25 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5807592 I am sleep deprived at the moment through one way or the other my hand for a long time now has been keeping me awake to because it throbs as night also last night for some unknown reason hubby woke me to tell me he wanted me to do his blood I asked him why he said don't worry I asked him again this morning and he said he doesn't know why he asked after all his blood sugar level was 11.3 last night which I thought was good. Thu, 30 Oct 2014 13:38:27 EST THURSDAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5807003 What a night we had the small window open at the top of the bed and with the howling wind it rattled and banged all night, with my sore hand I could not close it so hence not much sleep hubby seemed to sleep through it, as well as all the thunder and lightning it was not a good night. My Daughter's birthday today she turns 53 she told me last night she did not want to be reminded, her Daughter has just been promoted to 2 IC and she is really pleased. Wed, 29 Oct 2014 13:41:19 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5806355 We never got the thunder storm that we were suppose to get it must have bypassed us but I don't mind we did get the rain though. Hubby's blood sugar levels are still all over the place but the Diabetic nurse did give me the various points of between 5- 15 and it has only gone over the 15 once in the last week so I think that is not bad. Tue, 28 Oct 2014 13:29:08 EST TUESDAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5805737 WELL WE FINALLY GOT OUR RAIN IT HAS BEEN POURING DOWN ALL NIGHT, TODAY THEY ARE PREDICTING THUNDER STORMS SO I WON'T HOLD MY BREATH ON THAT ONE. Mon, 27 Oct 2014 13:49:38 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5805235 Today is our Labor day so a holiday the weather is not the best very windy and looks close to rain for a Spring day it is not to warm, so have finished all my cleaning. Sun, 26 Oct 2014 20:47:08 EST A cold Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5804676 After yesterday the weather is cold windy and overcast, for Spring it is like Winter I have 3 tops on to get warm. Sat, 25 Oct 2014 20:03:29 EST A Lovley Spring Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5804163 It has turned out a lovely day here had a fantastic walk nice and crisp as it was a bit cool, will have quite a bit to do this weekend so with 3 days should get it all done. Fri, 24 Oct 2014 19:46:38 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803442 Pleased today is Friday we have a long weekend this weekend as it is Labour day on Monday bur any way it is my day off anyway, we have a lot to do this weekend as they are coming to do a house inspection next week so have to clean up a bit. Thu, 23 Oct 2014 13:48:43 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802845 Well everything seems to be good at the moment hubby has got his new glasses as with all this with his diabetes his old glasses were useless as his vision had completely changed so now he has 1 pair for reading and another pair for driving exetera. Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:38:30 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802190 Hubby is copping at work so that is good and I think that is helping his blood sugars as well because he is not sitting around like he was at home, so am hoping every thing has settled down. Tue, 21 Oct 2014 13:49:55 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801567 Hubby went to work yesterday they have cut his hours back a bit to help him, which I think is very kind, the diabetes nurse has said it will take awhile to settle his sugar levels but she has given him a range of 5 - 15 and I only need to test his levels twice a day now so that is good. Mon, 20 Oct 2014 14:07:24 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800902 Well hubby has gone to work today not sure if he will last the 8 hours yesterday his blood sugar levels shot up to 20.6 so had to give him a fast acting insulin to bring it down it came down to 16.2 after 1 hour so was happy with that. Sun, 19 Oct 2014 13:32:57 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800525 Feeling a bit better today I had a good night sleep and I think that helped, I managed to go my walk this morning it has turned out a nice day , yesterday just after I finished my walk it just poured down so I was lucky not to get wet. Sat, 18 Oct 2014 20:21:19 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5800035 Hubby is feeling confident about going back to work on Monday so hope he is alright. I think I must be run down as I have now got a head cold. Fri, 17 Oct 2014 20:12:07 EST Yah Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5799325 It seems a long week and busy week work wise and heath issue wise but it seems to be working hubby's blood sugar level this morning was 6 so was happy with that will be doing his after breakfast test soon as I normally do it 1 hour after. I have to contact the diabetes nurse this morning so will be interesting to see if she changes anything. Thu, 16 Oct 2014 13:27:53 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5798745 A better night last night and I had a good night sleep, Hubby was very happy with all of his results yesterday and tomorrow he has his diabetes eye test which is very important for his driving test when he has to have it soon. Wed, 15 Oct 2014 13:28:21 EST Wedesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5798409 Last night about hubby woke me up to say he was having a hypo, I jumped out of bed to take his blood sugar to find it was 3.7 had to rush and give him some jelly beans took it again 10 min later it was 4.1 so waited until 10 past 11 and it was 5.5 so was happy with that but when I was talking to a nurse she said I c=should give him a cracker and a piece of cheese as that is what they do at the hospital so will remember that next time. Wed, 15 Oct 2014 02:00:51 EST TUESDAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5797468 Hubby still off work with me still trying to stabilize his sugar levels that is very hard. Mon, 13 Oct 2014 13:56:32 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5797129 Very hard job getting these sugar levels right am now having to give the fast insulin twice a day before lunch and before dinner as they seem to shoot up sometime after breakfast, which is going to be hard as I won't be able to do the lunch one. Sun, 12 Oct 2014 23:24:23 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5796491 I am having a relaxing day today, went for my walk early as I really didn't want to go but thought I would get it done now I am relaxing as I have been very busy trying to stabilize hubby's blood sugar levels. Sat, 11 Oct 2014 20:30:34 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5795993 I am feeling a bit yuk today I think I am getting my flu back But find it a bit hard to find out what hubby can have and can't have to try and keep his blood sugars down. Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:25:34 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5795294 Took hubby to the Dr and he was pleased with where he is at at the moment he said it will take time he has an appointment for his eyes, his kidneys and a dietitian which are all checks they do for diabetics so hope his eyes are alright. Thu, 9 Oct 2014 13:34:55 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5794716 Gee Hubby's blood sugar level this morning was 5.5 Which here is good that was before breakfast after breakfast it was 10.1 the range here for diabetics is between 5 and 7. Hubby was a bit concerned as he has never had it that low but I have made him a Dr. appointment for this afternoon as I am on leave this afternoon and he has to have a follow up with his GP after coming out of Hospital. Wed, 8 Oct 2014 14:03:58 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5794080 An improvement this morning blood sugar levels were 8.5 so will be interesting to see what they are when I get home. for me it is still a learning thing to find out how to keep it low and what he can eat and what he can't eat. Tue, 7 Oct 2014 13:31:19 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5793801 Late today took hubbys blood sugar as soon as I got home from work and it was 18.1 a bit disheartening as this morning as soon as he got up I took it and it 8.9 which I thought was good I think it is going to be a hard ride. Tue, 7 Oct 2014 02:45:12 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5792798 The Dr visited hubby yesterday afternoon and told him they were pleased with his progress and that he would be allowed to come home today so that was good news. Sun, 5 Oct 2014 12:55:38 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5792503 Went up to see hubby but came home early as I had quite a lot to do here as I have let the house work go to spend more time with him as I know how boring it is in hospital. I have to go to work tomorrow but will pop in and see him before I start work, he hopes to come home tomorrow but I won't hold my breath but I should know quite early as the Dr's do there rounds about 09:00 am so will ring him after that to find out. Sat, 4 Oct 2014 22:53:10 EST
