Check-up

Type 2 Diabetes Blog

I must start off by saying my heart goes out to family and friends of all those impacted by the Colorado cinema tragedy.

As I mentioned in my previous blog I have been struggling with no energy.  I had a quarterly check-up with my PCP last Friday and I was telling him what had been going on (nothing…because I just want to sleep) all my blood work was good even my A1c was good.   Then he looked at my blood pressure reading the nurse took…102/62. 

Happy July 4th

I hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th Holiday.  We had about 20 people over…well mainly extended family.   We had a great time although we had to take the party inside with the passing storms.

No Service

Type 2 Diabetes Blog

It’s been nuts since I last blogged.   Lost internet, cable and phone service for about a week.  It was horrible.    I think we have all been there but I did learn few helpful things to remember for future reference.   If your provider is to send a tech out always ask for an invoice/job number.   The first day they send an “outdoor” tech because after conducting tests on the phone they thought it was an outside issue.   Nope…while he was here the tech called Dispatch to get an “indoor” tech because he thought the modem that they sent to us via overnight the previous day was bad. 

Graduation

Whew…I can finally take a rest.    It’s was a full impact week for me.   We had my niece’s graduation party Wednesday night.   It was a great evening…weather was great and I even saw a couple of people I knew back in high school.   I got a framed piece of canvas for all guests to sign and give her words of wisdom as she leaves the nest….it was fun reading them…some were funny while some were serious.

Count Down

Busy week as the Planning Committee is making the final preparations for this weekend’s conference and awareness walk. For those attending the conference please find me to introduce yourself. For those unable to attend please sign-up to be a virtual walker. You can even join Paula Deen’s team…something to brag about to your friends. Every penny counts in continuing the services offered by DiabetesSisters.  

I hope all mothers (even those with a four-legged child) had a WONDERFUL Mother’s Day. 

May Day

Type 2 Diabetes Blog

It was a difficult week for me. Very emotional…May 2nd was my mom’s birthday. That day I went to lunch with a co-worker/friend who lost her father 2 years ago. We ended-up crying over Chick-fil-nuggets while sharing our experiences of being with them when they passed away.   

To Eat or Not To Eat

Type 2 Diabetes Blog

Last night my husband and I went over to my brother’s, so we could see my niece before leaving for her senior prom. My husband is very protective of our niece and had to make sure her dress was appropriate (haha). We all rode over in my brother’s van to a local park where all the couples and their parents were meeting for pictures.  I have to say my niece was beautiful…the best in the group (I might be a little bias).  I had to choke back tears as I wished my mom was there to see her.
