Another beautiful? day…

No_Added_SugarI sat up in bed and felt like a brick wall had hit me last night. I over did it yesterday, but it is time to get things done. The weather was perfect and I spent the day, dragging logs, fixing the fence, walking for four hours total, rebuilt a sled I borrowed, writing a couple of posts, working on the internet store and dancing a jig… 🙂 Plus a few more things… The dancing jig part maybe stretching it a little bit…

Thus, today I have already walked Boza and he is sleeping again, while I write this article. The coffee is talking to me, as the steam wafts to my nose and the nutty smell of the odor is so enticing…

First thing I did when I sat up this morning is take a sugar reading and my blood pressure. Sugar was 4.9mmo/l (88mg/dl) and BP was 100 / 55… I consider that pretty good, but I seem to have a sinus infection and that made me grouchy. But how can you stay grouchy with vital readings like that. On the same line as vitals, Svetochka has found a oxymeter that goes on the finger tip, to tell me what my oxygen readings are. My last doctor in America was concerned about that situation and he was going to run a bunch of tests. I think he may have been on to something and I will start the process of elimination to determine if I have a low oxygen issue. There is medicine to help me if I do and I will be watching that closely. As soon as she gets back to our village home…

Oh for those who wonder about sugar stuff tidbits; for a diabetic, hypoglycemia worry point is 4 or below, hence the phrase “4 is the floor”…

For a diabetic, the first time that you actually get blood sugar under control, is sometimes a scary thing. Your body has no idea what correct levels are and it takes time to allow the body and your mind to gather and assimilate the data to understand what is happening. I have seen people go into hypoglycemia at 6mmo/l, just because they have never been near that low before or at least for so many years the body forgot what it is like…

One thing that I have found is that newer doctors seem to not be inducing hypoglycemia in a patient to allow the person to feel what it is about. My doctor did this while I was in his office and could control the situation. It is important that before you start taking medicine, you know what to expect. I watch people freak out at 6mmo/l to 7mmo/l because they have never had readings that low and some think they will die or something. The body does react strange at first and the mind definitely reacts strange…

The day started out great and then Mother Nature decided that we did not deserve more sun and sent the sun away. Then she added insult to injury and start it to rain…

Oh well, you take what you can get…
