Or something like that. Got to bed around 10:40-ish. It’s just after 4:30 now. I only had one trip to the bathroom in the night. That’s a lot better than my typical 4-5 times to the bathroom. That means (if I’ve done my homework right) that my kidneys aren’t working overtime to eliminate excess sugar from my blood.
Let’s see if my understanding is somewhat accurate. Finger-stick – 126. Hmmm… not as low as I’d like, but still a lot better than when I started checking the numbers. And still I have to remind myself it is just a number, a single data point along the path, so I can’t get too excited about a single number.
BigBoy slept on the bed with me again, as he’s done several times recently. He’s still sleeping. Once I wake up for real, it is hard for me to continue lying there pretending to sleep. I will nap later. I’ll probably come back here and add to this later as well.
Later…. So, I finally got some much-needed bowel relief last night, as I mentioned. And I was able to go this morning. And yet I continue to have pains around my abdomen that I can’t explain. While washing the dishes just now, I had several pains that made no particular sense but ensured I would not be standing up for very long. It felt very much like the day Devyn was working with me and I had to stop. I hate this because I don’t have a name for these pains. There’s obviously something wrong in my intestines, but what is it and what am I supposed to do about it? I hope the colonoscopy will provide some answers.
