Medical Update

Did my entry yesterday & realized last night that I shd of waited till after my diabetes dr appt today & did a more thorough entry.  Oh well.
I always have to go to him with abt 2 wks worth of recorded blood tests-before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner & before bed.  This last visit he wanted me to do a blood test 2 hrs after every meal so he could better judge the insulin I take before each meal & how it's handling my diet.   There were a few highs(190's) & lows(below65) (a few more lows then highs).  He was really quite pleased though, just wants me to check my carbs around supper time cause my highs occur later in the day.
I had been concerned when he did a B12 check cause I thought OK whats up.  He reported it was perfectly normal which I was pleased with.
My Hemoglobin A1C which monitors the blood sugar level over a 3 month period was 6.9, anything under 7 is considered very good.  I'd like it be lower then that yet but I can get pretty fussy with myself sometimes.
Does anyone ever get frustrated with all the bad news you hear now a days on radio, TV, etc., etc.  I know I do & so often something comes up which will make me stop & think abt what good I could do to add to the world.
Here's something for you.  What would you complete this line with.
If I could do something to help the world...........................................
Mine is - If I could do something to help the world - I would of gone down to where the oil spill was & help clean beaches, nature areas and birds & mammals & I would volunteer for wildlife & nature conservation in general.
Hope everyone's doing really swell.

Sorry I haven\'t been on here to comment lately, but I am thrilled your numbers all seem good and that you sound content with things. Yes, I do get frustrated with the news and as Joyce Meyer says ... if we can\'t watch it w/o getting upset, turn it off, so usually I do. Last night I tried to watch the national news with my 8yo in the room and there were clips of men with machine guns firing them (coulda been target practice we don\'t know) but I watched his eyebrows go up and down and thought \"time to change the channel.\" sigh. It was commonplace for me, but literally eye opening for him. As far as your question goes.... hmmmm... I\'d like to be on a mission relief effort where you get to work directly with those in need. maybe someday, but for now I guess I\'ll do that in my hometown if I can. Hope you are doing well too!
