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 Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5791826 Hubby said he did not have a very good night last night so will find out more when I get up to the hospital, his blood sugar levels at the moment are good but still don't know about the kidneys. Fri, 3 Oct 2014 15:53:08 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5791464 Been at the hospital today not as a worker but to be with hubby he went in last night at 9:30 pm and they have had him on a glucose drip with insulin all day. This afternoon his blood sugar level was down to 10.7 so I am hoping that it has stabilized then we just have to get those kidneys working properly here's hoping. Fri, 3 Oct 2014 03:02:26 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5790600 Hubby has to go back to the Dr at 12 NOON had a shocking night trying to get his sugar levels down as they are affecting his kidneys, had the Lab Dr ring at 9:00 pm as he was concerned about his blood test that he had after visiting the Dr and wanted him admitted to hospital. Finally got his blood sugar levels down but the Dr wants to have a word with him so will see what happens. Wed, 1 Oct 2014 18:11:34 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5789910 Both hubby and I are going to the Dr. this afternoon hubby has got no energy so I took his blood sugar levels and they were sky high so that was not good, took them this morning before breakfast and it 21.2 and that is still high so will see what the Dr. says. Tue, 30 Sep 2014 18:16:41 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5789163 I am not going to work today as I am still not well as well as being kept awake most of the night with hubby coughing and getting up and down the whole night, he went to work this morning but his boss has sent him home until Monday to help him get better. Mon, 29 Sep 2014 15:11:01 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5788558 Still not well I am aching all over and every time I cough it really hurts, not sure whether I will be going to work tomorrow but will see how I am tomorrow. Hubby went to the Dr on Saturday and he put him on a nebulizer and he did feel a bit better after he is still home from work but he hopes to go to work tomorrow. Sun, 28 Sep 2014 17:54:40 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5788043 Really sick today I went for a short walk so that was better tan not I feel like I have no energy, just yuck. Sat, 27 Sep 2014 20:01:23 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5787611 Guess what I am now sick I have a very sore throat and a sore chest, hubby went to the Dr and because we have moved house we have also changed Dr and he is not happy with the medication he has so he wants us to bring in all his medications and he is going to sort them out as he said he does not need some of them. Fri, 26 Sep 2014 22:28:06 EST Yah! Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5786854 Hubby is back home sick today had a shocking night so will take him back to the Dr. as he has been on the antibiotics now for a week and they don't seem to have cleared up his chest so will make an appointment for early tomorrow as I have to work today. Thu, 25 Sep 2014 14:41:46 EST THURSDAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5786195 Another great morning and another early walk now back to getting some work done we have a busy day today can't wait for tomorrow when I am back at my own place of work.

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 14:30:26 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5784118 Made hubby stay home from work today as it is a really wet and wild day out there, I spoke to his boss and she said that was wise as it is bitterly cold out at the airport, he is a bit better not 100% but the medication has helped him a bit. Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:43:51 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5783718 Not a nice day today it started off great and was warm when I went for my walk and I was home only 10 minutes and the heavens opened and it just poured down. hubby is still not well at the moment he is asleep, and yesterday he slept nearly all day which is not like him.

Hubby is home sick today not sure what is going on with him as he is not saying much and I won't push it he will tell me me when he is ready because when I ask he just says he does not want to burden me with his problems.
