I have an appointment with the endocrinologist on the 13th. I requested to actually see Dr. Harris. No PAs no diabetes educator, just Dr. Harris. The last time I went, the diabetes educator told me to count carbs. REALLY?? I have had diabetes for 13 years and your telling me to count carbs. Lady, I can't carbs in my sleep. Give me something that will help me. Good grief.
I have my next appointment with the surgeon on Nov. 20th. I did find out that my family doctor didn't feel comfortable with me having the surgery until we get my sugar down a little. She said I could stroke out, have a heart attack, or numerous other issues.
So, the way I see things, God knows what He's doing. He has this whole thing mapped out. Maybe He is going to use me as a walking testimony of healing, maybe not. Maybe someone that needs to attend to me during surgery wasn't going to be there today. For whatever reason, God didn't want me having surgery today. That's ok with me. I will just keep trusting in Him and plodding along with my new blue and white fashionable collar. hehe.
I kinda over did it today. I tried to do some dishes, a load of laundry, and cleaning off the kitchen table. Yeah, I paid for it. I had a severe headache and slept all afternoon. I have to try and remember that I am not a superwoman. I am not invincible. I have to take it slow and be careful.
The biggest bummer of this whole thing is not being able to craft. It's been 5 days since I last crafted and I'm going stark raving mad. I miss it. I have tons of cards to make, I am following along with Kathy at Paper Phenomenon making a 31 Days of Christmas Lapbook and that's on hold. I need to craft something..I have to figure out a way to craft while in this collar. Anyone have any good ideas?
I will keep you updated as things progress. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. I truly appreciate them. God bless you all and have a wonderful weekend.
