Weird night last night,but BigBoy and I survived the New Years onslaught of noise. I’m guessing he hid out under my bed, since I couldn’t find him in his usual haunts.
My morning finger-stick was 126, higher than I’d like.
I’ve been drinking an 8-ounce glass of water pretty much every hour today, and writing down the times. I have four more to go before evening in order to reach my “2 quarts a day” requirement. Some suggested drinking with a straw, or sipping from a bottle. I just slam it down and get it over with. And I have my coffee along the way. I don’t know about kidney function or effect on glucose numbers, but OMG it has an effect on my bowels. Hooo-boy does it have an effect!!!
Which is strange, since I already increased my water intake, but apparently not enough. I wonder if it will make truly enough of a difference by Friday when I go back for another blood draw. We shall see. And, of course, I presume I will have to continue drinking 2 quarts a day until after the CT scan next week.
Anyway, today is the first day of 2020, which I mentioned in the previous post. No mail going out or coming in. I decided to stay in my jammies all day and just chill out with my knitting and Harry Potter movies. I’m not knitting a lot — I get 2 or 3 rounds done on the socks and have to put them aside a while. I just can’t sit and knit for hours at a time.
