I went to the doctor this morning for blood work. My doctor was very pleased with the results of my A1C. It was 5.6 and my fasting blood was 110. He said that he wished all his diabetic patients would be like that. I am watchful of what I eat. I know I can have sweets but I also know I cannot over indulge in them. I am careful with the amount of carbs I eat. Overdoing it will cause highs and lows. I will get back the results of my thyroid test next week. I am hoping it is back in normal range. I hate getting blood work for that all the time and switching meds all the time. He told me to continue eating soft foods and liquid foods and resting my jaw. If it has not improved in a few weeks I will need to go to a dentist. Like that will happen.
Pat got his blood work back from his doc and it was normal. His calcium and magnesium level were being checked. He has been getting cramps in his hands. The doctor believes it is trigger finger. I am not so sure. I think it is more like swan neck. He has worked with his hands all his life and has suffered quite a few untreated injuries. I just hope that they hold out until retirement. He plans on retiring at 62 1/2. Sure he will have to take a reduction in SS but he is afraid because of his family history of heart disease (every male on his father side died in early 70's of heart disease and everyone on his mother's side has heart disease) that he will not live to enjoy retirement if he waits until 66 for full retirement
Brook is working hard at Tae Kwon Do. She is on the Demo Team again with a whole new group. I am just amazed at the improvement in her in just 1 year. She is growing up on me. She is also getting that smart mouth that will find a bar of soap in it if she is not careful!
Scampi is finally settling back down. Pup moved out on my. He moved up to where my daughter has moved to. Scampi has been going nuts. He would run away and go up there. It was killing him that Pup and Brook were both up there. He loves Brook to death. She has been staying here a bit more this week so he is settling back down. I bought a pet bed at Goodwill for $1 and he has moved into it. I bought it for Buddy but Scampi found it and got in it. It is a good thing. He was getting on the couch all the time now he goes to the bed! A dollar well spent.
I have birds anybody want 1? I do not know what I am going to do with them all! LOL It is hard to get rid of them. I need to contact a pet shop and see if they will buy them. Maybe I will put an ad in paper soon. I don't think you can put them on Craig's List.
We got 4 inches of rain in less than 2 hours the other day. There is still water around but it is disappearing fast. The water table is so low that it is sucking it up fast. I wish it would dry up fast in from of the barn! I hate walking in muddy horse poop and pee.
Officially I have lost 1 pound this month. BLAH. I have got to do better than that.
I am out of here. Y'all have a great weekend.
