Hi possum I think I will wait for Bohemian Rhapsody to be available to stream. Although i am curious to see it.
My wife's eyes are better, thanks for asking! She is having some follow up laser treatments to prevent more problems, i hope they will help. Her gastric pacemaker surgery is tomorrow, and it was down to the wire getting insurance approval. Good to go though, i hope this will help her. She also has a new endocrinologist that we both like much better than the last one. I hope we can have a go at transplant in the coming year.
I really hope your med change will help with the binge eating. Was your quarterly check up okay otherwise? I love to walk with my dog. By myself i would find it hard to get motivated.

Hi marylin i hope your scan will be helpful. I'm glad your doctor is following through. Do you see a dietician? They can help you meal plan for the new year, if you feel you need help. Great job drawing boundaries with negative family.

Hi Gr3tta. Yes, there are some movies that I like to see at a theatre and others I am more than happy to wait to view at home. Eyesight is so important so am pleased that your wife's eyes are better. Sounds like the doctors know what they are doing to keep on top of the issue.

That is good that the insurance approval for the gastric pacemaker went though. Must have been hard while waiting for it to be approved. Thinking good thoughts that all goes well with the surgery for the both of you.
What kind of dog do you enjoy walks with?

Today I took the last Vyvanse of 30mg. Considering that it costs $113 per month I am not wasting it. Yesterday wasnt so bad with food. It's always a good night when you can sleep in your own bed at night and not the recliner.

Thanks for your kind thoughts Gr3tta.I haven't been able to see the doctor yet,scan will probably be in the new year now.I do see the diabetic nurse on 7th January to see if the new meds available are suitable to control my blood sugars.I have to try see my doctor as well but there are no prebookable appointments so I have to ring up in the mornings for that day's available appointments.I wish you and your wife a Happy christmas and New Year 2019.Your wife has a lot of health issues I hope she continues to make progress with her health in the new year.Blessings to you both!

I'm not sure if anyone's posted about this yet (so I will)

but the more a dog kisses you the higher your sugar levels

so if you have a dog.... well, beware of the kisses

I think this is gross, but if it helps people..

Really I didn't know that. I will "try" and make sure my dog doesn't kiss me as much.

I think she meant, its not that its bad for the dog. The problem is that it might mean your sugar is too high, thats what is making you more tasty to your dog!

So its like your dog is trying to alert you that there is a potential problem.

This gave me a good laugh. I am glad because I don't have a dog. I wonder how that could raise a person's blood sugar level?
