29 August 2018
Yesterday was a bad day, so this will be VERY short.
I woke up at 3 a.m., feeling fuzzy-headed. I headed to the bathroom and thought I was going to faint. Didn't dare walk without my walker.
I took my blood sugar and it was 36. For those of you fortunate enough not to know about blood sugar, the normal reading is around 90. I was diagnosed with diabetes at leas 15 years ago and my perennial problem is the numbers being too high. When I started keeping track, they were nearly 400.
If I can get it down to 150, I figure I am doing pretty good.
Once in a GREAT while it may be 70 or something, but never ever as low as 36. That's fainting and calling 911 territory. Fortunately I didn't faint,
But I tracked my sugar so often that my fingers look like they've been in a battle (see photo of the day) There was no way I could sit at the computer. In fact, I didn't even check e-mail except on the iPad.
Ned came by and he, too, was having a bad day so decided not to stay.
Walt was having minor difficulties with his catheter. He, at least was able to cook dinner. I was not.
Anyway, I spent the day in the recliner and will regale you with more health tales tomorrow (butt, nerves, etc.) but I dragged myself in here on compulsion and now am going to head to Sacramento to see the neurologist.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear
