Rick has taken his 3rd dose of Insulin now ... still not seeing a good drop in his blood sugars. Still over 200. He is only taking 5 units once a day. Dr. Greenwell said to do this for a week, then to call him with the numbers. Lisa (Rick's nurse) said that sometimes it takes a little while for the Insulin to "catch up" to his body. And that after a few days, to watch him closely - for that first "drop".
I talked with the doctor's office about me ... My A1c is higher than normal ... Cholesterol is too high ... and a Urinary Tract Infection. Sigh. I will be getting a copy of all the numbers this week.
Taking antibiotics for the UTI ... learning about high cholesterol and how to treat it. Facing the reality of having to watch my blood sugars as well.
This week? PT is to start back (had to wait on Dr. Devinney to sign papers for an extension of the therapy ... and wait for worker's comp to approve) - IF Rick can do it with having fallen yesterday.
Next week - I have an oncology appointment in Houston @ MDA.
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
