Hope you managed to sort out the soup Gr3tta. I went to see Christopher Robin and I did enjoy it. It seems like it is taking forever for my hernia operation to arrive. Put some washing on the line today. Ouch. Off to see my T today.

Thank you!
I'm glad Christopher Robin was good!
Here's hoping your operation will come and go quickly.

My wife had an endocrinology appointment today. They changed some settings on her insulin pump, i hope it will be helpful. It seems to require constant tweaking. But i still think it's better than shots. Does anyone else have a pump? She has an Omnipod. Its "cordless" which is nice. She also has a Libre continuous glucometer.
She felt too sick to go to dialysis today, which is upsetting. They were to call if they got an opening for tomorrow, but she slept all day while i went to work so now she may go without until Sat.

Don't have a pump here. I hope that their tweaking has positive results this time. Does your wife feel better after sleeping? Sounds exhausting for the both of you.

Thank you, possom.
They did fit her in on Fri, as well as her usual time Sat. She was very exhausted to go back to back, but feels less nauseous.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Less nausea is always a bonus. I trust that things will continue to improve for her. The weekend was a mixture of breaking an iron by dropping it on the floor and catching up with a friend. So all round okay. Today Tuesday was DBT grad group.



How are you guys all going with the exercise and eating well side of things?

My wife's change in pump settings are a fail. Made everything worse. Left a message for triage nurse who did not call me back. My wife had a panic attack at dialysis and i left work an hour early to pick her up. She did complete almost the full treatment. I'll have to call the nurse again tomorrow.

@possum- oh I'm sorry you broke the iron! I hope you will be able to replace it soon. Glad you were able to catch up with your friend.

@ Marylin- that is quite ambitious! I hope it's not too much? But you know your capabilities. Success will surely yield results. Go for it, best of luck to you!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend! 😊

My wife is having trouble with her fistula, so will have a vascular appointment scheduled. I bought us tickets to a show next week for a surprise to look forward to. She's been very depressed.
