I went to my nurse practitioner yesterday. Kathy is fabulous! I was sure my glucose and A1c were going to be horrible. You could have knocked me over with a feather when she said it was stable. No change.
However, my cholesterol had jumped up along with my triglycerides. What the heck! OK, the triglycerides are affected by sugar and carbs, but why didn't my glucose go up also? I don't get it.
She wanted me to go on a higher dose of Lipitor to get my cholesterol and triglycerides down, but I promised to get back to my walking. Therefore she's giving me a reprieve until November. I've got three months to walk.
She says it will help the back butt pain, too. That was a surprise. I was trying not to move it too much. She says I need to get out there and move.
The problem is I've been totally consumed with the scanning, organizing and formatting of my mother's genealogy (over 200 new photos from Japan that my grandmother had)as well as Art's mother's and father's photos and genealogy. It's been an obsession since the start of the year. I was also working on scanning our own family photos. This means I've been on my butt a whole lot and not doing much of anything else. I can't even get to my regular blogging visits lately... mostly in spurts.
So...OK then... At least I don't have to do the needle pricks again. I just need to move... sigh...
By the way... Did anybody see the Perseid Meteor Shower? Art and I actually went out to a park tonight to get away from street lamp lights and stare at the sky. Nothing.
