I'm at a strange stage.
Last Thursday I had an echocardiogram of my heart, with good results.
Then we raced to the building where I was to have a PET Scan. After drawing some blood (I need a little zipper for all the blood everyone has drawn) and my blood sugar was up. The scan had to be rescheduled.
Since it was still early in the day, I scheduled an appointment with my family doctor. Luckily, after an hour's wait at the clinic, he put me on a long-term insulin to take at night. That relieved me. Unfortunately, the next morning the blood sugar only went down six points.
Friday I had an appointment with my kidney doctor. My lab results were elevated. They sucked more blood out of me, and later I had to go in a cup. (Don't need to get too graphic.) I'm waiting on those results.
This is Sunday, my blood sugar went up this morning from yesterday. I am not a happy camper. Tomorrow morning is very crucial. I need the PET scan, so the blood sugar has to be down.
I'm afraid it might not be down tomorrow...
As I was doing some work on the computer, I had the food channel on, and a woman with high blood pressure and type II diabetes was featured on a show dealing with vegan diets. Apparently, she was able to get off her oral medications for those two diseases and managed to lose sixteen pounds, as well, in a three week period.
I'm sure you know what synchronicity means and if you don't here it is: Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events which are causally unrelated occurring together in a supposedly meaningful manner.
So, this morning I ate oatmeal, no sugar, no milk. I like oatmeal so it wasn't a biggie.
While cruising the internet, I found this article on what is a vegan diet.
Right now, I'm desperate enough to try anything. Even if it's going the 'green' route. If it works the benefits would be fantastic. Lose weight, control my blood sugar and blood pressure. It's a win-win for me.
Again, thanks for all the kind wishes and prayers, you can tell that I need them!
