Nervous? Yes. Excited? Yes. Everything in between? Yes and Yes.
Last time I spoke with my provider she said after one of my high blood pressure bottles gets empty, I will be able to drop down to only one of the two. I pray pray pray pray after today, when I am completed with my Metformin, I will not have to refill that either. I’m still on my cholesterol one but I was taken off my triglycerides one right after my surgery last June 2012. After all that I take, I am left with just vitamins and supplements.
Once upon a time back when I was first diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in February of 2008 … I was on 14 pills. And shooting myself up with a syringe full of insulin and essentially poisoning myself because that particular Quack didn’t know what he was doing. Then …. along came Dr. Bonnie Nowak….. and then Lori Ranek, PA-C … two life saving providers that stepped in to my life and …. look at me now.
I realize I should have gone last winter to get this fifth fill but things got in the way. After this current summer happened, I realized my lap band had quit working for me and if I want to continue on the road of being healthy, I need to get back on track and helping my shedfest along.
We’re heading out at 12:30pm to see the super hero team in Mitchell (SD) … then hitting up Shopko …. then home sweet home. Think good thoughts!
