Great Week!!!

I spent a couple of days visiting my new grand baby.. someone was a little jealous and needed lots of hugs. lol

I had my 3 month check up, it was wonderful!!!! I’m still praising God!!!!! My a1c was down to controllable numbers, my liver enzymes where normal! 2 years of off the charts to normal. biopsies  after tests and more tests….there is light after the darkness. Type 2 diabetes is hard to manage, you forever have to listen to your body. You have to care about you, this is hard sometimes. I also lost 9 lbs.

Now if you look at this picture and think, lady your still chubby, yes I know. The one thing I want you to notice is, I have eyes. Just about every picture I have you can’t see them because they were almost shut. One of the things a lot of diabetics have, blurred vision. Not now !Look at those peepers!!!! I’m so proud!!!

I had started new shots this past 3 months. . It has helped bring my sugar down but also came with some side effects, large very painful lumps. I still have the very first shot lump. So there are 10 lumps 2 will have to be removed through surgery and not sure on the others. I am starting a new one as soon as the insurance says ok. it’s very important that I keep my eating under control, along with exercise and rest. I really am praying and believing that I can get off all these meds.

So this 3 months the focus is eating and exercise . Breakfast is my hardest, so I will have to work on it. I’m going to journal on my plan as I go but remember, I’m just an ole lady trying to get her health back, I have no, no training about anything!!!! This is just what I will be doing for me.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day, and God Bless!!

Mind, Body and Soul

   For the last six weeks or so I have been graced, to help my daughter and son-in-law, with their 2 youngest children. They have a new preemie little Lydia, to worry about in the hospital. I will be very honest. There has been some times where I would catch myself thinking, man what would I give to just go to the bathroom on my own…..I would then see this little girl peek around the corner, open the door and slowly come in. I have mirrors that surround the bathtub ( Something a real woman would never put there,) any way. She looks at herself smiles great big and just starts talking her chatter. She is telling me all sorts of things. Then I think of her mommy, our first little girl. She use to do the same thing. Then when she got older, would come in sit on the edge of the tub and talk. Some might think that is a personal time, I did too at times. The more I think about it though I wouldn’t change a thing, we talked about everything under the sun over the years. So little one comes in, plays at the mirror and our life moves on. (soul)

My grandson, is full of energy. Like all 13 year olds he has a bottomless pit for a belly. I think he could wipe out my whole cupboard in just one day. Yes he is a slender young man, what I would give for that metabolism . He keeps me busy. I think that when baby is napping and he tries so hard to be quiet he is the cutest. That is when he will forget and get ice from the ice maker. Go to the bathroom and shut the door at least 2 times and walk through the kitchen flat-footed just to make his feet slap on the floor. Now his side, mamaw  did you notice how quiet I walked. I didn’t pound the floor in the kitchen. I only came out from my room (his computer is there) 2 times to go to the bathroom and to get a drink. All smiles, that boy. Well he is right, I seen one thing, he did another. (mind)

After bedtime for both I settle down, work on my computer, blog and catch up with friends. I will read or work on my crochet. Funny thing is after the long day, that sometimes I think will never end. I think man what will I do when they leave. They do keep this old mind going, give peace in my soul and keep my old body limbered up… Love all my grandchildren and children. Then what?

 

 

Lydia is here

May I introduce my newest grandchild, Lydia. She came into this world way to early. She wasn’t due until Feb 22 or so. Looks like things will be ok, but prayers are always welcome.

Mommy is doing fine also. Right now Lydia is in nciu, but things are going well. What a start to a new year……………..Everyone have a wonderful day.

Whoa little missy!!!

Big John Wayne fan, lol. How could I resist? Our little granddaughter is trying her best to get here way too early. Mom has been in the hospital for a few weeks now, and she has a few more to do. Meanwhile, papaw and I are taking care of the ones at home. We find it an honor to be trusted, for weeks with them. The youngest is 1. She keeps me running. Our grandson is 13, throw him a pizza, and he is fine. He has been a big help with little sister. Please keep them, in your prayers.
While the baby sleeps this morning, I’ll have my coffee, and check on some of the blogging buddies. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
