Saturday morning I check my blood glucose and it was almost 100 points higher than what I am accustomed to seeing. A couple hours I started choking and ended up with petechiae all over my face. (Just call me Spot) The experience left me exhausted and I spent most of the day recovering. I didn't get much done.
Sunday, my blood glucose was only 90 points higher. What is going on with my body, it something wrong with my meter. No, nothing was wrong with the meter. Put another stressor on my body was in play. Kidney stone. Thank heavens it was a short lived episode, but again another day lost.
This morning my blood glucose dropped another 50 points. Sleep has been my friend and so had the bit of ice out on the roads. I'm hoping that all will be well and things will get back to normal.
So I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself. Can a girl get a break here?
No I just need to take care of myself and make the best of it.
I am planning out the days until Christmas. Meals, errands and appointments all listed.
Christmas Eve dinner is all planned out. Christmas Day dinner is more low key for us and still needs to be planned.
But my biggest distraction... is awaiting the arrival of my new grandson. His due date is Christmas. Yet every time the phone now rings, my heart jumps. My granddaughter arrived two weeks early.

There will always be distractions, both good and bad, but I still need to stay the course and take care of me.

    Not fun! I admire how you're looking for how and what you can control as the rest of the ride just does its thing.

    Oh no! Glad that the kidney stone is in the past. Painful!

    Deep breaths. That little one will make his appearance in his own time. They don't know what OUR schedule is! LOL I guess they learn that soon enough, eh!

    Wow, glad you're feeling better today. Also happy your kidney stone passed. They are excruciating as I have two close friends who suffer from them. Take care.

    Hold on tight. My brother passes kidney stones at least one a week. It is so painful. My thoughts and prayers go with you. Please seek medical help if you are not yet.
