Hello everyone, here I am back again, have to say yesterday was a busy day for me after taking Leo to OOSH I went to breakfast with the family then did a little bit of shopping before going to Leo's school for his Easter Hat Parade. This year he wasn't as excited as he was last year, in fact as times he looked bored/sad, after the parade we got him out early and Kelli took him back to Jess's place for a while before they came here.
Yesterday was the last day of term for school children and both Dawson and Zac were at breakfast following in the Jenkins tradition of not going to school on the last day of term, myself and my siblings often didn't go on the last day of term and my own girls often didn't go on the last day of term. Often on the last day of term not a lot of school work is done, what is done is usually done in the morning and the afternoon is spent backing up stuff ready for the holiday I know teachers usually say they do school work right up to the last bell of the day but I have been on the last day and that is not often the case.
I came home had a quick bit to eat then headed over to the Royal (hospital) for an appointment with a diabetic doctor about what to do about my high BGL's, he has started me on something called Victoza http://www.victoza.com/ I have to take this injection each night at 8pm for a month and then go back to see him if my BGL's are lower then he will start me on Byetta which is similar but cheaper and I will have to take that twice a day. If my BGL's are not lower I will have to go onto insulin instead.
I was also given a lecture about my diet, how I should be eating better not less just better but he was a nice doctor and sounded like he understood that is is not always easy to eat the right foods and he said even though I am walking every day and eating mostly good, he thinks it would be a uphill battle for me to lose weight and suggested I look into having surgery. He suggested gastric sleeve surgery but I don't know I will look into it what he was talking about didn't sound like what I thought gastric sleeve was but I will go to where he suggested and ask them about it
Anyway I have started the injections from last night it is nothing doesn't hurt or anything and in fact both the doctor and the nurse said my approach to having to give myself infections was good, I said if it needs to be done then so be it no point stressing over it, just get on with it.
What was strange was the doctor asked me if I had an Aboriginal blood in me because of how dark my skin is, ok I don't think my skin is that dark but whatever, he looked at the back of my neck and under my arms, asked about bruising and then talked to his trainee/student doctor about whether I could have Cushings http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cushing%27s_syndrome. What I do know is that he wants me to have a heap of tests done before I go back, he doesn't think I have Cushings but also said I have a number of the symptoms.
