I am back, and here is an update
Hello to all my precious friends, I have missed you all so very much. I have not written on my blog since June 29th, today is October 22nd. That is nearly four months. Wow!! My life has been crazy, to say the least. Eddie has been off of work since June 24th, his foot was broken, when the tree fell on him, and on our car. Every time he would go see his doctor, the x-ray would show that his foot was not healing. Finally, when he went to see his doctor on September 22nd, the x-ray showed that his foot had healed 90%. But, the plant where he works, said he had to be healed 100%, before he could return to work. His next appointment is October 27th, the doctor will be doing another x-ray on that day. Please be praying that it will show 100% healing. Financially, things are really rough right now, he really needs to start making paychecks again. Then, of course, there is me, and all of my health adventures!! I started going to a new doctor on October 8th, his name is Dr. Huffman. He is a endocrinologist, he is now taking care of my diabetes, and thyroid problems. I love him already, he really listens to me, and shows so much concern. His entire staff is very compassionate, I appreciate them all. Speaking of diabetes, mine is completely out of control. Dr. Huffman is trying me on different amounts of insulin. My blood sugars bounce up and down constantly, from very low, to very high. That is not good, it is dangerous. It wreaks havoc on my body. It has really damaged my feet, can barely get around. My feet are dead, and useless. Very scary. My vision has gotten worse, there is a huge cataract in my left eye, and also a ruptured blood vessel in my left eye. I have an appointment with my eye doctor on October 28th. I had another appointment with Dr. Huffman today. He went over all of the blood work they did on October 8th. All my levels came back way to elevated. My thyroid is so bad, it would not even register. The Dr. put me on more medicine for my thyroid, have to take it for the next four weeks. My thyroid is also messing up my diabetes. When I go back on December 8th, he is going to put me on a twenty-four hour monitor for my insulin, to see how it is affecting my body. After my diabetes gets a little better, the Dr. wants me to go on an insulin pump. So, please pray for me, would truly appreciate it.
