I haven't been actively participating IPer recently, but I received a lot of
mail a few weeks ago from ya'll and here's what's happened.
1. I went to my nurse and made it VERY Clear that I should have been
informed when they detected a "loss of sensation" in my feet. He was quite
swore it would never happen again.
2. I had a 24 hr pee test come back perfect!!! Yipee,yahoo. The Accupril's
3. I finally complained about my doctor. I have been increasingly bothered
by the fact he doesn't seem to know my name and he hasn't seen me since
before I decided to get a pump (my nurse really does everything). So,
another doctor in the practice (who I often deal with) is my new doctor.
Sara SP's take charge attitude seems to be rubbing off on me.
4. My A1C was 5.7!!
5. I went skiing for the first time since starting the pump this summer and
ended up dropping to 38 after the third run and I didn't feel low at all! I
later corrected the rebound and dropped down to 29 about 7 hrs later. I was
totally disoriented but apparently told Andrew (the BF) what to do and seemed
to take charge of the situation even though I don't completely remember it.
Guess skiing effects me a little different than running on a treadmill!
6. Got an appointment with a neurologist about my cold, falling asleep feet.
Anyway, I'm writing this, to thank everyone who offered me advice, support,
and encouraging me to stick up for myself! Thank you !!!
