Hello my friends, hope today, finds you all happy. This week I am very thankful for my life. Sometimes, I think we all take life for granted. We act like we will live forever, well, guess what?? That is not true. Since my stroke last year, I have really realized how precious life is, and how quickly it can go by. I am definitely taking one day at a time, that is all I can do. Recently, things have been getting harder, not easier. I feel like my progress has taken a step backward. My diabetes continues to be out of control, even though, the Doctor has me on a very high dose of insulin, four shots a day, on a diabetic diet, exercise as much as I can, still no improvement. I have pain constantly in the back of my head, both my legs, and feet, constantly swell really bad, sometimes I can barely walk. My left hand constantly goes numb, and tingles badly. Yesterday, I was not feeling well, so after Eddie got home from work, we laid down for a little nap. Praise God for watching over me, because my blood sugar dropped really quickly, and very low. Thank God that Eddie was home with me. I totally went out of it, Eddie shook me, and finally got me awake. I was drenched in a sweat, my clothes were soaked, and so were the sheets that I was laying on. He got me up, and into the living room, took great care of me. It seems like things are getting worse with my health daily. But, I refuse to give up this fight. My life is worth fighting for, and God is on my side, so how can I possibly lose?? Friends, celebrate your life, you only have one life, believe me, it is truly worth celebrating!!
