I am tired and need to get up in the morning to drive him back for tests but I wanted to thank my DC family for your support. I am so glad my health has improved so much so that now I can be there for him.
From what you have described, I am tending to go with the low sugar. Let us know how everything turns out.

sorry to hear of tb's recent illness. it's good that you are able to be with him, now that your own health has improved substantially. am sending good thoughts your way, lp. it looks like your tb might need to join you in following a more limited diet, in consideration of healthier tomorrows.

Laurie,
it's possible he had Low blood glucose. My sis has had hypo-glycemia for years and it's no fun. There were and are times I have it also so I have to watch it with insulin!! Let me know what they say but I lay money on low b/g's.

On our way back to hospital for fasting glucose and head CT. We think sugar as well but doctor not so sure because of other factors.

Woke up this morning and it was still very hot...just for something different

I have the air con on, cooling the house down now...there is a change coming through and so it will be cooler on Sunday, so we are heading out for the day...it will only be 23c, perfect!

Today I am doing some ironing, some washing and then going to go and see mum

Babe! Nice to see you!

Best of luck on the upcoming eye surgery, and hoping for better times ahead for you.
