I had two dr appts. One at 8 am and the other around 920 in the same place. No biggie, right? It was frosty on Wednesday. My car was acting funny, was told it was ok. I got to the next town over and decided I’d better get some gas. It was on the edge of ‘E’. I had a little bit of time and the roads were clear of cars. I got to the station and was told the pumps were all down, which was ok….I also discovered I didn’t have my wallet. Not a problem, really. I always carry cash on me somewhere for emergencies. I couldn’t find it. Not ok.
I managed to get back to the house and found my wallet. It took ages to find it (OK, in a frantic rush, ages is like 5 minutes!) and I was going to be very late for my first apt. Unfortunately, the office wasn’t open yet. I got back to the next town, drove into a different gas station. Since it was almost 8 am, cars were everywhere! I was behind two and when the first one left, I moved up and opted to call the office. I knew it would take a while to get the car filled up. I was still on the phone with the office when my car was ready. I was going to go forward cuz the space in front of me went empty, but someone pulled into it head first. FACING me. I tried to back up to leave and almost ran into another rig! I managed to scrinch out of the area and park in a space to finish the call and get my apt changed. I hung up the phone and burst into tears! I rarely cry like that.
During my first visit, I learned I weighed more than I thought and I’ll need an MRI on my brain and neck (MS). During the second visit I learned I’d lost a pound walking down the stairs (yeah stairs!) and my HA1C was almost 8. They are also changing some of my meds. I also had to go back in after I left, because I forgot to give the second dr my co-pay.
On the way back home, I stopped at DQ for a much deserved reading and eating a mini blizzard break. Which was a very good idea. I spent a fun afternoon in the sunshine ripping out the hop vines and weeding. I paid for it. The next day (Thursday) my blood sugar was super high (had way too much rice for dinner on Wednesday), my body ached, and I slept til I was so low I was sweating. All day it has been up and down. I think the red tide is also expected, so that could be part of it.
The best thing? I got to talk to one of my all time favorite peoples for a very very long time. Katydid has always been one of my heroes! She is one of my rays of sunshine!!
