As was my original reason for seeking information about the vsg surgery, my motivation was based on the ever increasing blood sugar I was reporting. I had my A1C done a week before surgery and it was an all time high of 10.1. To explain it more clearly, someone who is in this range is averaging a blood sugar glucose level of 243 every day. Since I have been home from the hospital, I have been monitoring my blood sugar 3 times a day and supplementing as needed with insulin. I am very excited that I see numbers like 144 or 153. Yes, these are still higher than I want them to be, but I have not had a result like this in easily 2 years. I feel optimism for the first time in a very long time.
Today I received flowers from my work.. They are so pretty. The 2nd picture is the remainder of the flowers from Jim and also from Brandon's family. Some of them were wilting so I kept the ones that were still pretty and put them together in the same vase. Fresh flowers are so special. I feel badly that they are just going to die, but honestly, they grow to die...so why not sitting on my counter?
