The days are going by and each day I feel a little better mostly. My husband and I are going to get signed up for diabetes classes so I can figure this mess out and my husband can know what the heck is going on with me if I do something wrong medicinewise.
We have been getting plants tidied up in their pots from the overwintering time in the greenhouse. I hadn't been able to fuss with anything in a while and didn't know why I felt so weak.
Hubby has been so good in caring for me. We are both learning the carb count on most all of our food, but it is limited. One of the finest things I'd forgotten about is Cream of Wheat and adding some frozen fruit in it, and they have made oatmeal so good I can't believe it! I made some pecan encrusted "fried chicken" the other day for dinner and enough for lunches and snacks for me. Sugar is way over rated anyway. The substitutes are tasty and fill the void when it comes to needing sweet stuff. I love the sugar free stuff you put in a bottle of cold water for a change.
There is a lot of learning going on around here regarding the steroid induced diabetes that I'm living with right now. When they are able to reduce the steroids the diabetes will, hopefully, go away. So far it hasn't been too bad, but it is getting more complicated.
Take care all you kind friends who have dropped by and left messages on my blog or emailed me. It really means a lot to me to hear from you and what is going on in your part of the world.
It is supposed to start raining here and hopefully it won't be as dreadful as it has been in Oklahoma for them, but there will be a LOT of rain in store. Our daughter is coming up to Ft. Worth this weekend to attend an annual party. This year will be particularly difficult since we have lost two others from our "gang". Life goes on, thank Goodness. I found while I was so sick that I really did not like the idea of dying at all. There is way too much to see, read, learn, and experience. However, right now it is sort of scary to think of going very far from home. That will get better as my body heals....I hope!
