    Morning Wake-Up Readings 2017

    157 Got up at 5:15 and showered and just didn't feel right so I laid back down. Didn't get back up until 7:30. Today is my youngest daughters 15th birthday. She's a little mini-me. Poor kid. They start school back tomorrow.

    87 this morning. Surprised because I ate a lot yesterday evening. Happy Monday. After almost two decades living without a car, I am car shopping this week. My user name will no longer be accurate! My parents are elderly and I start a new job so have to cave in and buy a car.

    Morning Wake-Up Readings 2017

    We broke down the stage sets for Finian's Rainbow and painted the walls back to black. We then went to an outstanding cast party. Good food and good liquor. They had filet mignon that was cooked to perfect medium and seasoned with only salt and pepper. No other seasonings needed. There were also these wonderful prawns. If that wasn't enough, they also had delicious meatballs and Italian sausages. The idea was to eat them with the pasta provided but I didn't waste plate space on pasta. Copious amounts of wine and beer were available as well. They also had the $100 chocolate torte. Paired off with some champagne for a wonderful dessert. With all of the good food the only surprise is that I was under 100 (98). I went to bed testing at 99 which was about 3 hours after feasting.

    Woke up at 3, feeling like I needed to so I tested, saw my huge puffy eyes almost closed shut and then napped on the couch for 3 hours. 128 this morning. Yeah, I really am allergic to carbs, between the 2 hot dog rolls, small amount of Fritos and the chunk of blackberry cobbler hahahahaha Crapola, I am NOT doing that again for a very long time! Good news is that hubby had 2 hamburger patties with no buns. No cobbler either. LOL

    126 this morning immediately followed by 125. There may have been an Oatmeal Scotchie incident last night. (Followed by am incredible stomach ache incident.) Definitely one of those things I can't have around unless it's absolutely positive there are other folks around to eat them. I clearly won't stop at one. Evil cookies. Evil I say!

    140 Surprising considering what I ate and drank yesterday. It was a long day...left home at 9, drove 2 hours, hit the park till 8 pm and drove the 2 hours home. It rained and they shut everything down for about an hour and a half but the clouds kept the temps under 90 all day so that was good. Here's a couple of pics... The bird cage is the parks best kept secret. It's off the beaten path and you get these cups of food and the birds just land all over you. On your arm, head, shoulders....it's fun. I only rode 2 rides one of which was a wooden roller coaster and the last wooden roller coaster I'll ever ride in my life. I've ridden it before but this time it was just SO rough. It's a fun ride but I felt like I had a concussion when I got off (not really). Even my daughter and nephew said they wouldn't ride it anymore.

    To date, I have had 18.5 pounds of fluid removed from my system via dialysis, and am feeling a lot better! I am voiding more frequently and this shows my kidneys returning to their natural state. Look forward to a positive lab report on Friday. Thanks group for so many well wishes, it is much appreciated!

    A 106 (5.88) for me today. I'm beginning to think that my insulin is bad, since I've increased it by 9 units the past few days and my wake up readings are increasing, not decreasing. Today I start with a new pen from a new batch of pens, so I'll have to lower my nightly dose those 9 units to start over. If the old insulin pen was bad, and I increased my dose by those 9 units, then using a new pen from a new batch of pens, and staying at the my present dose with those 9 units added, that would be too much insulin, so I need to go back to the dose I was taking before my BG levels started to rise.

    Wish I could say yes... but in the middle of last week while walking the dog I stepped into a divot, turned my ankle and did a face plant. I only hurt my ankle and my pride because I know I really looked like a clutz... at least my dog thought so... gave me a funny head turned sideways look. Anyway, no swelling of the ankle and the pain let up in two days. However, the pain hasn't gotten any less. I can stand and walk on it as long as I don't overdo it with the end result damaging any exercise besides weight lifting etc.. Oh well, just a part of aging and becoming a clutz.

    A 64 (3.55) for me today. I decided that my Novolog insulin pen was bad, so I threw it out and started using a new pen, and it appears that I was right, hence the 64 reading today.

    I wanted something salty to eat last night, and the only thing that I had was microwave popcorn, so I ate that. I rarely eat that, so I wasn't sure of the correct insulin dose that I needed, so I apparently took too little Novolog. I woke up to a 110, which is way too high for me. Next time, if there is a next time, I'll increase my Novolog dose.( I miss my pork skins, since they have zero carbs, but the sodium content is so high, that I had to stop eating them. I believe the sodium content in a 5 ounce bag of pork skins is 2500mg or 2.5 grams.)
