Owning my Actions

Friday, February 05, 2016      4 comments

Well. After a very positive doctor's appointment and bloodwork earlier in the week, I was feeling pretty confident. I had dropped my A1C from 11.7 to 8.9 in just 6 weeks. We ate out last night (it's a recurring theme at our house) and we spli... Read more

Doctor Visit

I had my next follow-up with my physician today from my December hospitalization. Overall, it was a really good one. My BP was 113/71. My weight is holding at about 20 lbs down from December. We did labwork (CBC, CMP, A1C) which I should hav... Read more

A New Month

Monday, February 01, 2016      1 comments

How can it be February already? How can it be almost 60 degrees? I am still muddling along with my CPAP. The machine/mask isn't bothering me, but I am still taking 1-2 hours each and every night to fall asleep. That has gotten REALLY old... Read more

CPAP Thoughts after a week

Wednesday, January 27, 2016      2 comments

Overall, I can tell it is helping my sleep. I am no longer dry-nosed, and my mask doesn't phase me. I slept in the recliner for the first five nights. The next two I was in the bed, and didn't sleep as well, but I think it has nothing to do w... Read more

Day 2 of the CPAP

Thursday, January 21, 2016      5 comments

I was tired yesterday, so I actually went up to lay down about 6:45 pm. I tried a few times with no luck falling asleep - I simply couldn't get comfortable. I decided to move the machine back down to the recliner. I still had some issues, inc... Read more

My night as a jet pilot

Well, that's what one of my friend's says she looks like with her CPAP mask. I picked mine up yesterday afternoon. I had one probably 15 years ago, and all I can say is WOW, technology has improved. I have control over the humidity, the tempe... Read more

And I mean that LITERALLY. I've put on about 5 lbs since Saturday. One of my discharge instructions was to check my weight daily, and report sudden or significant weight gain to my doctor. So i did yesterday. When I spoke to him about ... Read more

I've written this blog entry a couple of times in my head so far. I returned to work on Monday, but have been much more tired than I anticipated. I had a sleep study done Sunday night, with surprising results. I had one 17 years ago, wher... Read more

Too Tough

Friday, December 18, 2015      3 comments

Well, I have decided I am too tough for my own good. I haven't felt good lately, but after chaperoning my son's rifle meet on the 12th, I discovered I was short of breath, so I went to the doctor Monday morning. An EKG, bloodwork, and a chest... Read more

Monday, July 20, 2015      1 comments

1. 95% compliance with my medication. I have a hard time remembering. I should set it at 100% but I want these goals to be r-e-a-l-I-s-t-I-c. I am still not at goal, but it is improving. I'll take it! 2. Wear my fitbit everyday. Kn... Read more
