((((((((((( Ken ))))))))))))))
The appointment will be there before you know it. Think positive.
No biggie with mine, bandage and stitches will be gone today and I will be able to take a proper and very long shower when the time rolls around. Love that thought.
I am managing, but thanks for your concern and wishes.
Now going to try for some sleep, getting a cold, coughing, sneezing, you know the routine, that is making sleep impossible.
Talk another time....
THE WAIT IS ARRRGGHHH

Appointment is over. The toe that had the surgery is black, LOL scared me at first, BUT that is normal. The growth was so large it stretched the skin so thin, so blah blah blah.
Looks good, so the doctor says, wrapped once again but only until Sunday. I then can take that off myself and take the longest shower in history, LOL. Will stay in that shower until the water is cold, you can bet on that.
Now I am truly hoping that your appointment went as well as mine. Please let me know, asap.
Oh yeah, next Thursday is when I have the finally go around with the foot. The removal of a large toenail that has gone astray. Axe dropped on it when I was very young, grew back crocked and toenail grows to side of toe and out. With the diabetes I can not continue trying to keep it cut, so this is the best way to go. LOL, aren't I the weird one. Anyways that is just something that can be done in office and healed in about a month, so I am going with it.
Thanks Ken, just for everything....waiting to hear from you.
glad your ok xxx

First off, I do understand the shock you are feeling. But please please listen to me on this. I have a family doctor that is working hard with me to adjust meds. Not doing insulin shots now, taking 2 different meds, pill form, twice a day and keeping a handle on it.
Yes you will have to watch what you eat, but it isn't that bad, honest. Lots of material out there to help you make those adjustments. All in all it will make you healthier with eating properly. The finger sticks, daily, you will get use to. Part of your life, like brushing the teeth.
You will know, by how you feel when the sugar level is out of whack, you body works that way. You can deal with it and live with it.
Know what made me accept it? Seeing young children with diabetes and knowing what they go through BUT they enjoy life to the fullest. Now I was thinking, if a child came do this, then why can't I? I am a adult, I make the decisions, I can and will get it into control.
It doesn't change your feelings, your love, you remain the you with your values of life, family and friends. It only changes a small part of your life, making you do adjustments. So I eat a little differently than I was, so I talk 4 extra pills a day. It works, I am alive and feeling human. There are millions of people that deal with it, so much worse off than I. I just step back, look about, and tend to be more thankful for so much. It is an eye opener, for I know it could be worse than what it is.
Read all you can (very important to do this) , make your charts, menu's, pay attention to your body (especially your feet, LOL). You can and will do this, YOU are not a quitter, not what I see. All I know, life can remain in our 'normal zone' with a few tweats here and there.
(((((((((( Ken ))))))))))))) tell that 'visitor' he hasn't won yet, and you aren't going to allow him to do that!!!!! Stay strong!
P. S. The young 'Warmie child' thought she would help "Dad" with his work, need I say more? Yes I am getting there, getting issues taken care of and back to some 'normal' life for me. Especially being able to work in my garden.

With all you have gone through in your life, this will be easy. It can be controlled, just remember that. It is a lot to deal with all at once.
Hope you get a good night of sleep, was out and about today doing errands, etc. Sorry for being so late in answering.
Goodnight to you and Fran, take care, make tomorrow a good day please.
THANKS FOR YOU (((((WARMSOUL))))

Sorry to say, this is one thing your body won't allow you to turn your back on and ignore. Remember it is changing your eye-site as it is, so getting a handle on it is a must. Not being negative, just saying this is something you MUST deal with and do the meds, change the eating habits.
Guess what I am saying it does exist and can be controlled.
Weather is suppose to be much, much nicer starting today, with no more rain until Wednesday. Yeah!! I love the rain, but not the harsh storms we have been having.
Have people working on my home, getting siding put on and my home is a large old home, almost a hundred years old. The front porch, which I love, has to be taken down and a new one put up. Oh it is going to be a huge porch again, just better now. Really excited about it all.
And, the large rock out front will stay!!
((((((((( Fran )))))))))))) no matter little improvement or a huge improvement, you keep going and keep that faith. Baby steps are always good. Best to you..
SOORY FOR BEING NEGATIVE
