Been a while.

I can't remember the last time I blogged. Its been a while. Getting used to the glipizide and avoiding all starches for the most part. Will have occasional bread as sandwich or with a dinner out, but do limit it greatly. Just not worth it. ... Read more

So, I wasn't too happy with my morning glucose numbers. I guess I had gotten a bit lax in carb counting, and my doc took me off Januvia due to the risks associated with it. My numbers increased a bit (carb creep?) so I talked to her about add... Read more

Just keeping one foot in front of another and keeping on. Diabetes isn't something that gives one a break...EVER. Its a constant awareness of diet and monitoring blood glucose that will keep the hounds (high sugars) away.. Even with the m... Read more

...but I'm still at it. Been so busy since Mom passed away that I haven't gotten on here. Still following the program and making progress, slowly. Beginning to see my weight go down a bit again. Have been taking a *careful* break so this is ... Read more

My poor jaw/face is so swollen its painful. Really didn't expect so much swelling with a single extraction. Ah well. Still on pain meds and eating what I can. BG is doing well despite the pain levels, so that is good. I'm not eating a whole... Read more

Molar extraction...

Friday, March 08, 2013      1 comments

My jaw is so, so sore/tender. The doctor used a light glucose drip. He was SURE it wouldn't raise my bs levels...wrong. I didn't get to a danger zone, but got just under 140 so wasn't too happy. I had expressed that I wasn't thrilled about it... Read more

Oral surgeon on the horizon............

Wednesday, March 06, 2013      1 comments

The pain in my jaw/ear is from a molar/crown that got a cavity underneath. For some reason it wasn't being picked up by my regular dentist. Went back to put a new crown on it and the endodontist found it. Now to an oral surgeon for extraction... Read more

I hate pain~~

Sunday, March 03, 2013      2 comments

Tooth ache or ear ache. Not sure which, but it kept me awake most of the night--even with prescription pain killer. Blood sugars are a bit elevated and I wondered why, but now think whatever it is, is causing it. I've been enjoying a bit of r... Read more

Lost a dear friend today to that nasty disease Cancer. He had been ill with pneumonia and was rushed to ICU today. His wife called me to let me know he was failing about an hour ago and just found out now that he died. So fast. I'm devastate... Read more

No apparent changes....but........

Thursday, February 14, 2013      3 comments

With no *apparent* changes in eating practices, I've put on a couple of pounds that seems to be sticking around. Sigh. Its been a crazy couple of months emotionally so perhaps its just a stress response. Needless to say, its time to bump up ... Read more

On my mind today....

Thursday, January 31, 2013      2 comments

Just what is the goal of all our *dieting* efforts? Are we just looking to lose a few pounds? A lot of pounds? Improve our health? Is it a long term goal or a short term goal? What is motivating us to lose weight? I've often cringed ... Read more

Getting through it.....

Monday, January 28, 2013      1 comments

Managed to get through the last 2 weeks and managed my blood sugar pretty well. Got sick twice through this, once with a flu type bug and now with a cold. I'm guessing the stress has reduced my immune function somewhat. First time in my life ... Read more

Mom's journey ended this morning. I don't know if one is ever ready to lose their mom, I know its been a difficult day even though I knew it was coming. Blood sugars were elevated yesterday since eating was haphazard at best. Ate good food, ... Read more

Mom's journey nearing an end...:-(

Wednesday, January 16, 2013      5 comments

Haven't been hungry and have been very busy with mom stuff. Mom is now comatose or near it and soon will be headed home (heaven). Though a very emotional time, it is a time of happiness that her suffering in this body is near an end. Tears ... Read more
