Today was my last appointment with my primary care physician who is Dr. Nordell Brown. He had decided to just be a pediatrician now and focus on the little ones. He is Gracie's doctor and such a wonderful man. He has saved my life countless numbers of times and I just hope I can find a replacement as wonderful as he has been. Of course at the lab today they had the same problem they always do...couldn't find a vein so I am a human pin cushion. Got home and was really thirsty and that usually means one thing...I have high blood sugar. I tested my blood sugar and it was 465! I couldn't believe it! I had been fasting for the blood work, but before I left for the doctor I was 110, so I don't know what happened. I gave me a bolus of 18 units knowing it would very slowly come down, I checked it again an hour later and...It was 498! I knew something was wrong so I called Dr. Brown himself and he had me rip the IV out, give me a regular shot of humalog and put a new IV in. It has been so many years since I have had to give me a shot in my stomach that it actually scared me and didn't feel real great either, but it did the trick. I am now sitting pretty at 118 thank goodness! And thanks to Dr. Brown too!
Luke had a long drive contest tonight at Birch Creek, so Gracie and I went and watched and my cute parents showed up too! It was lots of fun and a beautiful day to get out and enjoy the weather! I have been telling Luke he never gives me flowers ever so today he brought me home a rose. SO sweet, even if it is because I have been hounding him for one lol. Men just need to appreciate women more. I hate getting flowers on only valentines or an anniversary. My favorite time for flowers is the just because ones. That is when I feel so loved and needed.
I should have brought the camera to the golf course to take a pic of Luke, but with my blood sugars on my mind, grabbing the camera was the last thing I was thinking of. But I will post pics soon. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
