Big doings tonight!

The shelter where Billie & I volunteer is having their annual fundraiser tonight.  Someone donated tickets, so for the first time, we get to go.  I'm really looking forward to it.  I'm going to have to take a nap sometime this afternoon.

At least the sun's out

No rain today, but it's gonna be a chilly one.

Blood sugar was 89, so we're starting the day off good.

Gray day

Went to see our friend, singer/songwriter Danny Quinn perform yesterday afternoon.  It was a great show, as always.

Blood sugar this morning was 88.  Kewl beans!  I did have to take a glucose tablet before lunch yesterday, but the low episodes are fewer than they were.

Damp day

I'm feeling really stiff due to cold damp weather, but my blood sugar was 85 this morning, so that's good.  I had a high of 160 yesterday, but I was a bit of a bad girl.

Saturday, April 21, 2012

So far so good

Blood sugar this morning was 92.  Had a reading of 63 before lunch yesterday, but I didn't feel too bad.  The new regimen seems to be working.

Day Two

Blood sugar was 81 this morning.  My high yesterday was 132, two hours after lunch.  No low sugar episodes.  I can live with that.  Blood sugar two hours after breakfast, 109.  Very nice.

Day one

First day on the new regimen.  Blood sugar this morning was 89.  So far so good.

Wednesday, April 18, 2012


The endocrinologist finally called back.  She wants to try cutting the oral meds in half and see what that does.  I'll still be taking the slow acting insulin at night.  If I'm still having low sugar episodes, we'll talk again. I'll give it a week.

Waiting is a bitch

I left a message for the doctor almost 2 hours ago, now it's just a waiting game.   Cue the Jeopardy theme music.

That's it!

Another low sugar morning.  I'm calling the doctor and telling her that I want to go back to slow acting insulin in the morning, and fast acting insulin before meals.

I'm paying for doing too much yesterday.  I feel like crap.  Woke up to low blood sugar, and a nasty headache.  Jimmy has a appointment to see if he can get new orthotics today, so I can't take a nap until we get back.

Busy day

Bestest bud Billie was off from work today, so we had a hang out together day.  After breakfast, Walmart, BJ's, back to Walmart, Wendy's, and then home again, I'm pooped.

Sunday, April 15, 2012


It's been a rough couple of days.  Jimmy's back is really bad, so he's totally miserable.  Both of us have had our blood sugar all over the place.  Add to that we've both felt like crap.  How is your weekend going?

Love this!!

Too low again

Woke up at 5:46 with a blood sugar of 57.  A glucose tablet and a Glucerna shake later, and I was okay.  Woke up again at around 8 to blood sugar of 90.  Much better.

Had two more low episodes yesterday, besides the one at 5 am.  I'm running out of glucose tablets!  UGH!

Rough night

I was up at 5 am with a low sugar episode.  I didn't need my meter to tell me it was low, I could feel it.  Took 2 glucose tablets and felt better, but sugar was still low when I woke up around 9.  Had to take another glucose tablet.

I've been having a lot of low sugar episodes since the doctor put me on the oral medication and switched the slow acting insulin from morning til night.  I think a call to the office is in order.

For the first time since my hospital stay, I will be covering my shift at PetsMart, taking care of the kitties S.T.A.R.T. II has for adoption.  We have fewer cats than usual because we had a couple of adoptions over the weekend.  I'm kind of glad that we don't have a full house.  I can take it easy my first day back.

Had to take a glucose tablet this morning due to another low reading (60).  I hate that feeling.  UGH!

Too low!

Sugar is 52 this morning, so I had to take some glucose to raise it.

Kewl Beans!

Thanks to our new wireless router, I'm posting on our TV. How neat is that?

Low this morning

Blood sugar is 72 this morning.  I should feel a bit wonky, but I don't.  Maybe I'm not awake enough yet.

Reading before bed was 142, but I had ice cream after dinner.

Friday, April 6, 2012

Dinner's ready!

Blood sugar is 82.  That's darn good!  Took my medication.  If feels strange not taking insulin before meals.  oh well.

Good morning!

Blood sugar is 87 this morning.  Last night before bed, it was 185, but we went out to dinner and I had a decadent dessert and a glass of Bailey's on the rocks, so 185 actually isn't too bad.

New reading shedule

I had to check my sugar a couple of hours after finishing breakfast today. It's 98, so that's very good.

Good reading this morning

Blood sugar is 97 this morning.  I did remember to take the slow acting insulin before bed last night.  It's strange not taking any insulin in the morning.  I have to take my oral meds this morning, and before dinner.

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Good evening

Blood sugar is 106.  Took the last dose of fast acting insulin.  I start on oral meds tomorrow.  Have to remember to take the slow acting insulin before I go to bed.

Not bad!

Blood sugar was 124 before lunch.  Pretty good considering I didn't take any Lantus this morning.

New rules!

Blood sugar is 148 this morning, but I had cookies and milk before bed last night.  

The endocrinologist is changing my meds and my routine.

Starting tonight, I'm going to be taking the slow acting insulin at night, instead of in the morning.

Starting tomorrow, instead of taking the fast acting insulin before each meal, I'll be taking an oral med before breakfast and dinner.

I'm also going to be testing my blood sugar after meals once a day, alternating meals.

We'll see how that works out.

No lunch, only dinner

We were so busy running around today that we never got lunch.  Blood sugar before dinner was 124, so it was insulin before dinner at Olive Garden.


Blood sugar is 114, so it's a double shot of insulin this morning.  Have an appointment to see the endocrinologist this afternoon.  So looking forward to that...NOT!

Monday, April 2, 2012

Wendy's for dinner

Blood sugar was 136, so I needed some insulin with my # 1 Combo (no cheese, mayo, or ketchup, with a side salad and a diet coke).  Tested my blood sugar and injected the insulin in the middle of the food court.  If anyone had a problem with it, too bad.

Lunch anyone?

Blood sugar is 106.  Good reading , but I still need insulin.

Can't wake up this morning

Sugar is 124, so it's insulin times two this morning.  Yawn...  Wish I could wake up.

Sunday, April 1, 2012


103 before dinner.  Almost, but not quite low enough to skip the insulin.  So close!!!

No lunch, just a snack

Blood sugar is 131, so I'll take some insulin before I snack down.


Blood sugar is 149 this morning, so double insulin again.  I really need to get up earlier, but it's easier said than done.
