First off, prayers for Beth and her dad. Hope he's improving. Second, It's still a steamer in our neck of the woods !! Almost downright oppressive but not complaining !!!! This is what summer is all about. Went to the doctor Fri and if my A1C doesn't come down ( it was 7.3 ) in 3 mos he's going to put me on metformin. Not happy about it but it's for my own good. Got to cut out more carbs and portion size . That is my problem . I like mashed potatoes and noodles too much
He said I can eat them but not as much. I don't eat much bread and not a cookie or ice cream fan so that's the only thing I can think of. Anyway, earlier this summer my A1C was in the 6 pt. range and now it's steadily climbing into the middle 7's. Maybe I inherited it from my mom
I told him I wouldn't want to get as bad as she is and he told me he didn't think I would since I'm much more active than she ever was he just doesn't want my kidney's damaged. I will try to get things under control but I've accepted what I might be in for my future. I also told him I was full of aches and pains anymore. While getting ready for the 4th party I ended up with major muscle spasms in my back. It was so bad last Sunday I almost told Tom to take me to the hospital for relief. But, I got out my Ben Gay cold ice and started rotating Tylenol , buffered aspirin, and Aleve and heat and now a week in it's feeling better. He told me to take 1 Aleve in the morning and another with my evening meal. It's much better but yesterday I aggervated it when I had to give mom her bath and clean her house and wash 3 loads of clothes for her .
Ok, enough about my aches and pains and woes, lol. A lot more people have worse than I do and I know that. It just SUCKS getting old !
