Hey everyone - I just wanted to tell you about a new activity I'll be doing this April. The Health Activist Writer's Month Challenge hosted by WEGO Health. I will be writing a post a day for all 30 days. I hope you'll join me in writing every day about health. It's going to be a lot of fun and I'd love to see what you have to say about each of the topics, too. All you have to do to join is sign up here: http://info.wegohealth.com/
and other stuff..............
so tomorrow i am going for some lab work. some for my Endo,whom i see next Thurs, and some for a kidney specialist i am seeing at the end of March.
my last A1c was 7.0 that made me very happy and seemed to please my Endo and his nurse. it has taken about a year to bring that down from well over 9. i believe that most of the credit must go to my pump (and me i suppose for doing what i thought was impossible!).
i will admit that i am a little nervous about this next one though. i'm not sure why, but i have a feeling it may have gone up. my BG's have been a little higher, and i haven't had as many lows since my last visit. higher because of several colds(or perhaps it's the same one and it just won't go away!) and a wicked flu that thankfully didn't last very long. less lows because of some tweaking of the basals throughout the daytime hours and overnight.
oh well, i guess i will just deal with whatever it is when i find out.
the visit to the kidney specialist was a by-product of my last appointment with my cardiologist. she said that with all of my "conditions" (diabetes and heart disease) it only made sense to get a Nephrologist on board. not that there is anything wrong with my kidneys per say, but with the 3 of them (cardiologist, endo, and nephrologist) working together they can keep it that way!
in other news, well, there isn't really any other news. i am still painting, but we have not had a formal class these last 2 wednesdays. just going to one of the girls houses and re-doing paintings we have already done. practicing techniques and such. next week we are going to a wonderful art store (which was supposed to be last night but it didn't work out for all involved), and i have a list of things i want to buy! i am looking forward to that. i am hoping to do some painting over the weekend so if i like what i do i will post a picture! LOL!
oh and i have 2 of my kids looking for employment. what i need is to start a business of some kind that can employ them and pay me for managing it. any suggestions??
