Got my new glucose monitor and have it set up. Just need to set up the strip prescription. Odd how all my at home testing is in normal ranges since my surgery...very odd.

Maybe the cause of the surgery was at the root of all my health problems.

I got my new meter today also!

The new Obamacare insurance plan, that I selected, provides my testing supplies with a $15.00 copay, huge savings over the old plan!

When my Mother was in assisted living I noticed that when some of her pals developed dementia the blood sugar readings tended to normalize also, very strange!

I think we have just scratched the surface when it comes to understanding how the human body works.

I'm at the end of a week of taking half of my diabetes meds, my blood sugars have been between 87 - 115. Blood Pressures 97-116/67-72. I've never been this NORMAL...kinda scary!

That is amazing!

I hope you can keep it going!

About the NORMAL thing, I wouldn't spread it around, it might be bad for your reputation!

I am continuing to work on finding a place for a weekend long family re union for my family this summer. It has had it's challenges. Trying to find a place, in July, to sleep 40 people that is affordable. The whole thing is giving me a headache.

I have to wait to watch Blacklist - TB gave up on it after the second episode because it was too gross....and now it is worse? I can take it!

I saw the surgeon and the gallbladder is definitely coming out. I have to phone in the morning for my surgery date. In the meantime I have to really watch my diet. I ate a bit of wrong stuff and the pain got worse. He said that it is bad enough, he doesn't want the stones (yes there are stones, not just sludge as the ER doc told me) moving out.

The surgeon is nice enough, but kind of ticked me off because he focused on the fact I am overweight and he wants me to be careful after not to rip his stitches out. I said I don't move fast at the best of times and he told me he could prescribe a surgical girdle for afterwords. No thanks, I know how to be careful and I am not THAT overweight in my belly area.
