Home from the Doctor!

Girly Comments & Graphics

Thank you so much for all the prayers for Nancy!! We went to the pulmonary specialist today for her check up and to find out the results from the Pulmonary Function test she took on Monday.

The results are in: AND she is doing better then 6 months ago!! I was so happy!!

The only thing was that I didn't eat enough before we went and I ran errands with Kelly and walked more then usual and I had a insulin reaction at the Dr's office and this time it was a bad one!! The nurse gave me a cookie and Kelly got some stuff for me but I had gone to far and I was in cold sweats and very clammy and my clothes were wet! We stopped at Mc Donald's and had lunch but when I got home I was chilling and sick and sooo weak. I slept the rest of the afternoon. I am feeling much better !!!

Ok, we go back to the pulmonary specialist in Oct. Next week we go see her Dr of Rheumatology over at KU Med Center. In May she has her blood drawn because her thyroid was out of whack. She also goes to the Special Needs Dentist in May. The last of May we see her Dr. of Gastroenterology for her stomach problems. In June we go see the the Psychiatric for her other problems and our local Dr for her diabetic condition!! I am telling you all this so you can put her on your prayer list!!!! Thanks!!

So, if I don't get to your blog as often as I would like to you know why!!!! She is a lot of care!! So again I am saying a Big Thank You for your love, support, and Prayers!!!

See? That list of Dr. appointments is a NIGHTMARE!!! It makes me shudder just thinkin' about it! UGH!

When I went to pick up Luz on Tuesday, Hector was having that SAME reaction -- AND he had been outside playing with Luz! He was all sweaty and clammy and I thought "Oy! What if he PASSED OUT with her???" You diabetics HAVE GOT to TAKE CARE of yourselves!!! Especially when you are responsible for taking care of someone else! Scary scary scary! I'm sorry... lecture done! I love you... Be good.

Grams you must pack a snack in your bag I do not want that to happen to you again. My goodness you sweet thing.
Do not do like I do...:) remember to take care of you! I know it can be all consuming going here ad there for doc appointments. Is there any way to schedule it to pace it better?
Dash has his balance test coming up .Both kids are home sick today I'll take them in to make sure it is not strep throat.
Be embraced and rest well. I'll fondly pray and think of all of you.

Oh my do need to keep a snack with you. Just think what could have happened if Kelly wasn't there with you. Glad to hear Nancy's results was good, but I feel for both of you with all those appointments ahead of you. Please take care of yourself.

First off....Carolyn, dear Carolyn,-------EAT!!! I always carry water and snacks in the car for just that purpose. It's come in handy many-a-times.

Then........I'm so very happy to hear the results for Nancy. That news really made my day.

It's a blessing I tellya, a blessing!!!

Happy Friday...
I'm sneaking around blogland for a bit before I take Bud out for his birthday dinner.

Hello, I am over from Karen's blog and wanted to say Hi. It sounds like you have been one busy woman. My husband is a diabetic so I know how hard it is. Take care.

We diabetics can have a low reading at any time. Though I take the pill, the dr. has told me to always carry a candy in my pocket. I don't always do that but I should. It's a good idea. Put some candy in your purse if you carry one. That way you always have it handy.

I will pray for Nancy. What a round of drs. appointments you have coming up. That is difficult.

Be sure to take care of YOU!! I will also keep you in my prayers.


Denise said...

God is able... and He is always watching........

That is good news about Nancy's results. I'll continue to pray for her.

Don't forget to take care of yourself too- you are so kind and giving, but remember you have needs too!!
