Well, awwrighty then!
Got to bed just after 10:00 and BigBoy followed me shortly thereafter. Now, instead of hogging the center of the bed, he seems to have settled for sleeping on ‘my’ side of the bed. My bed (when it has been used as a bed and I wasn’t sleeping in the living room) has been in the same position for 13 years. I get in and out on the same side, all the time. Last night when I got up after midnight, I crawled out the other side and then got back in on that side. Somehow I managed to sleep off and on through the night except for about 15-20 minutes after midnight.
While I was fixing my coffee this morning I realized I don’t remember making much coffee yesterday, maybe one cup when I got back from clinic. Drinking loads of water, though.
I got a message last night requesting that I schedule a time to review yesterday’s test result with the doctor. UGH… that’ll be yet another visit to clinic. I’m going to call first thing this morning to see if I can schedule that visit at the same time as I go for a repeat of the blood test that I’m supposed to do this morning after drinking all this much water that they requested. They want the repeat blood test before the CT scan scheduled for Thursday, but I’d much rather make one additional trip instead of two. Every clinic visit is a 2-3 hour (or longer) time block away from what I need to be doing at home/work. Plus there is a limit to how many free trips to clinics that I am able to get with my KelseyCare Advantage plan — 20 free rides per year, or 10 clinic visits. I don’t know if that is 20 rides per calendar year or per year starting with my first free ride. So I really would prefer to consolidate visits if I can.
Oh! This morning’s finger-stick – 112. Good. I had half a Pompeii salad again for supper, and then four Triscuits with cheese for a snack later in the evening. I’ll have the other half of that salad for lunch. I really do like the combination of goodies they put into it, and it seems not to raise my sugar much.
I hate sounding like a whiney-baby all the time, but all this health-related shit is wearing me out and I get discouraged by it. Seems like it’s some new thing every day or two. If I had the money, I’d go check into a hospital, let them do all their tests, and say “fix me and release me back into the wild.” Of course, if I had the money, I’d hire nutritionists or dietitians to plan out healthy meals and snacks 24/7 and I could just follow instructions and eat what I’m given. <*sigh*> Pffft! yeah, like that’s gonna happen!
Anyway, into the day I go. At some point today I have to reskein all the BRS. I wanted to do it yesterday but standing up working wasn’t an option with the abdominal pain. I’ll do what I can today.
