Updates & Thoughts

Had my reg checkup with my Diabetes dr.  I take abt 2 wks worth of blood sugar tests when I go & it's part of the visit.  I knew my pre lunch tests were quite good & the before supper ones were reasonably good.  However I knew he'd not be a happy camper abt the before bed & before breakfast tests.   They were all over the map.  Of course it made him wonder what is happening throughout the night so he wanted me to start taking a blood test say abt 2 or 3 a.m. to see if there was a pattern of some kind.  I'm just not always waking up at that those times so am not following thru on this every night.  He did however give me some pointers for my insulin doses, a main one being to increase my before bed insulin by 2 units which I've done.  It does seem to be helping to stabilize things a bit.  So this part of me is a work in progress for a bit longer.
Yippee doodle!!!!  I gained abt 3 lbs!
I've advised most of my friends that hubby's regular checkup appt at the cancer clinic has been postponed till the 21st.  You know I'm really not sure how I shd be feeling right now.  Part of me wants to always bring the on edge half of me to the front & get weighed down in this thinking & then there's the other half of me that wants to remember to keep it tuned in to our Lord & rely on his guidance.  Talk abt being torn in two.  Hubby's really trying so hard to keep himself together right now.  Am I crazy to keep imagining us being overjoyed
Our city has had one heck (to put it mildly) of a winter & as a result the frost level in the ground has gone way deeper then normal (I heard it's abt 7 ft down).  Well, is it reeking havoc with the city's water lines boy oh boy.  There is quite a very large number of homes where the water lines have frozen & people have no water.  The city has some machines that thaw these out but the backlog is just too out of control.  The city is constantly updating the list of areas that are at risk of this & notices are sent to those homes & they are being advised to keep a trickle of water running 24hrs a day.  We were considering ourselves so blessed to be OK so far.  Saturday evening we got our notice that we're in a risk area so we've got our water running.  When you start having to run your water the city takes a meter reading so people will not have to overpay water bills.  OK what really got me is when the city has said this problem could be here for several months yet.  Mother nature is just really getting a wee bit nasty don't you think.
Just got off the ph with vet re Angels test results.  Her kidney creatinin levels were actually low so her kidneys are doing fine.  Her platelets were a bit off but when he takes into consideration several other factors he feels it's not an issue to worry abt at this time.  Her liver count was 1 point below so that was good news.  The issue appears to be centered in her pancreas as the level shd be abt 3.5 & hers is 5.3.  There is a steroid based oral med that she could go on however he feels because all her other levels are good, her eating is good, her weight is good, her energy level is good that we shd just leave it be for now, watch if anything changes, otherwise he wants to recheck her in abt 6 months.  So I can tell you all at least this weight is lifted off my one shoulder.  Just have to find a way to carry thru till next wk & hubby.
Anywho I think I've babbled enough for now so I do so appreciate all you best friends in the world for taking time to check in here.

I\'m glad to hear the good news about Angel! That is one less thing on your shoulders. I do oh so know what you mean about hubby having to keep himself together. That is just how I felt. I pray that you have peace during this awful waiting time. Keep leaning on God. He has many blessings in store for you while waiting, I just know it.

We are getting some more wintry weather tonight. deep sigh! lol. ugh. I just want to go into denial. haha. We\'ve had to run out water too off and on, and keep our kitchen cabinet doors open to help keep the pipe area warmer. So far so good.

Hang in there. the 21st will be here soon. I\'m believing in good news for you. hugs, xoxo, m

It was 5 degrees here today, so we are back in the same old COLD boat haha.

I found that if I prayed/studied 3 times a day, I was well covered in God and it was sooooooo much better, actually it was pretty amazing.

Here\'s a scripture that I found very endearing: I probably already shared it, but here it is in case I didn\'t:
Malachi 4:2
But for you, who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

That is for US. Today. Isn\'t it great?!

Cast your care: heave/hoist/pitch that care of yours onto a beast of burden donkey) (Jesus) sorry for the bad analogy, but that\'s what the Greek bible says about it and you can walk beside your care, look at it, but not have to carry the weight of it. Beautiful!

This winter has been especially harsh, but alas Spring is coming!
I\'m glad your Kitty is doing well and will be praying your husband is as well. The waiting is always the worse I think.
Much love to you my friend
