To celebrate my three week anniversary, my father-in-law drove me to the School Board meeting. It was very nice to be back, and everyone was very kind and solicitous. The superintendent congratulated me on my progress during the meeting, and said that I was looking better than before the surgery, but that, unfortunately, I still wasn’t good looking. This is the kind of joking that I have missed.
I worked half a day, and came home and took a nap. Okay, I feel better, but the reserves are not yet what they should be. I think part of my problem is that I have gotten used to taking naps, which is not altogether a bad thing. However, as I go in more and more - part days only for a period of time - I think it will come back better than ever.
It has been an absolutely amazing three weeks, absolutely amazing.
I had labs again, and everything remains good except for the blood sugars. They finally gave up on balancing with the limited 70/30 insulin and went directly to NPH and R, so that they can balance between the two more effectively. I start with the new regimen tonight, and, hopefully, this will help. I won’t see any real change until tomorrow, of course.
