I have really enjoyed my day off yesterday even though it was a busy one! I got up and got all my medications ready for the following week and worked some around the house. I then started planning my schedule for the day. I did not get everything accomplished, but I did get some of it!
I visited my doctor yesterday and said my good byes as he will be leaving November the 1st to go back to his hometown and open a practice there. His father is failing health wise and he needs to be closer to him! I can understand this!
He changed my medication and I do hope I will be able to take this new medication he is prescribing for me. The name of it is" Byetta" and it is a shot so I will have to learn how to give it to myself! He will be taking me off of my Januvia, but keeping me on Metformin! He says most patients lose weight with this shot! I hope I will also! The side affect of it are nausea though and I hope this is not the way it will make me feel! I called Mrs. Lisa and she
is setting up a time for the nurse at the diabetic clinic to show me how to use it! She is so
Here are some more pictures of the trip! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
Let's see where was I? Oh yeah!
Entering Nantahala National Forest, NC home of some beautiful waterfalls:
The first pictures are of "Whitewater Falls" the highest falls east of the Rocky Mountains. The drop to this falls is 411 feet! So here we go on our journey....
This is a picture of the higher part. This was a wonderful hike! It was
a great trail that was not that hard! If I can do it anybody else can, except
mom! I left her sitting on a bench when the trail started going upward! It
got to tough for her, but she begged me to go ahead and get her more pictures
so I did!
These next pictures are of the lower part. The trail went upward for about 1.5
miles then there was steps going downward to the lower parts. Only about
10 different sets and it felt good going down after climbing up hill for so long!
Mom posing beside her rock! She wanted to take it home with us!
Pictures of "Dry Falls," but they were wet! What's up with that!
They also had a little hike that I took and enjoyed with mom
looking down at me!
We felt that it was just a little
to wet for her to try! I don't know why they called it dry falls as they
were sort of slippery wet!
Many of the falls we went to see were just not there this year as the
rain did not come, it has been hot and it is really dry in NC this fall!
We spent the night in a town called Highlands and in the motel we stayed
in I met this friend...
Ain't he cute?
Well , I think I will let there be a Part lll as I am getting
Stay tuned to "God's Country" ~Part lll as we leave Nantahala National Forest
and enter Pisgah National Forest. Have a beautiful fall day!
