    3 more days
    Thursday the 29 th is the day that I am having my surgery. YAY!!! I am so excited to finally get it over with. It has been a year and half that I have waited for this and now it's finally here.

    I went for my preops last Monday the 19th and by the time I got home they had called and left me a message telling me that my blood glucose was 507 and I needed to get to my family Dr. or ER as soon as I could. It was after 5 when I got home so that left the ER but I chose to wait until the next day to go to my family Dr. She put me on insulin (Humulin R) injections. I give myself shots 4 times a day now and the dose is adjusted to my glucose reading. Surprisingly my the shots don't hurt at all, whew!!!

    Tomorrow I go for an Echo Cardiogram and that should be all of the pre surgery tests. The preop center called me Friday around noon to come up there to have one done then, but of course it's a 2 hour drive up and they hadn't made an appointment yet so I doubted if I could have made it then and said Tuesday would be better in the afternoon. Well of course no one listens so I have to be up there bright and early. I will just have to get up at the crack of dawn, not good for someone that isn't a morning person. lol


    Thought I would show you the place I would the next few days. I think it will be 10 East but then everything changes. The hospital sure has undergone the changes since my grandmother was there in late 70's with Renal failure. She had to travel up there twice a week for Dialysis for 2 and half years so I got to know the place pretty good. Now it's all different with new buildings and additions to the original hospital. Sure don't look like the same place.


    Well Friends if all goes well I should be back in no time at all and on the losers bench. So please take care and happy stitching.

      I have been wondering about you! I was about ready to send out the national guard! LOL! Sorry you had to go on insulin. I hope Jack never has too. So far so good with his and metformin or however that is spelled. Ha, I am not a morning person either unless they start around noon! I function best late at night. anyway, I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. huggles

      Good luck, hope to talk with you soon. Pretty scary with the blood sugar, you did not feel funny? My sister and Niece are diabetic. They can actually get pretty weird, when their sugars are high.

      Greg,
      I am so very sorry you are gone from us. I have enjoyed all our SALs and will miss doing more of them with you. Also will miss our chatty emails. I pray you have found peace and are stitching up a storm. Your friendship will always be in my heart. ;D
