@possum - I'm sorry you had such a high reading! I hope it came down and you are feeling better?

@Marylin- sounds like you are working hard and reaping the rewards! Woohoo!

@guinness- I'm sorry to see you have such big variations in readings in a day, that can make you feel awful. I hope you're having better days since.

Oh my gosh do i LOVE bread! For my wife it's bagels. 😊

My wife's been having a difficult recovery from her gastric pacemaker surgery, but still hopeful it will provide relief in the long term. She's suffered multiple retinal hemorrhages, and now needs surgery on her left eye. The good news is it should provide significant relief right away. It's been a struggle to get her insulin pump supplies with the insurance switch, but hopefully they are arriving Mon from the new company.

I hope everyone will have a great weekend!!

Thanks Gr3tta. I have never met a donut that it didn't like. Haven't had one for a hole week. Boom tish.......

The Vyvanse is not helping much. If I go up another level to 70mg it may help then again it may bring another level of aggravation to my tics/spasms and general crankiness. I might just have to invest in a broom stick and witches hat. My P'doc wants me to go inpatient to try the next level but being an inpatient and a different place brings other challenges. May this isn't a medication that I can tolerate.

I am not testing my blood sugar levels. I know what it will be. Grrr.

Hope things with your wife's physical issues will settle down in due course. It's a long road hey?

Woke up high at 171 but managed to stay around that number all day. All and all not to bad.

@guiness- sounds like much better blood sugars, yay!! And choosing pancakes may feel like a "cheat," but choosing sugar free syrup is a win! Hope you have a great great weekend!

Yesterday my wife ran the gambit from a bs of 20, to over 500.
She also had dialysis which can play a role. Today so far she's doing much better. 😊
I'm hoping she can help a little with folding laundry, not at all because i mind, but because i know she wants to contribute. I'm going to clean up the kitchen.
She has a home a home PT referral in the works, and i would be mortified if someone saw a dirty stovetop or something. *eek!*
It might have to wait until after her eye surgery now, I'm not %100 percent, but that would make sense.

Happy weekend! Be healthy, but stll keep it fun! Wishing all the best. ❤

It sounds like your wife has a lot of difficulties with complications from her diabetes,having dialysis can't be easy.I hope her eye operation goes well and is successful Gr3etta.It is wonderful that she has you to keep house and home ticking over and to do the cleaning,you sound like an excellent husband.

I am still staying off any sweet junk foods,cakes,chocolate, ice creme.If I get cravings I have sugar free syrup in my coffee and diet coke.For most part I am averaging 252 for my blood sugar readings but get the occasional 392,but that's from eating white bread rolls,I am going to have to wean myself off of hot dogs and paninnis,maybe try brown bread.For my grocery shop to be delivered on Wednesday I have ordered a lot more vegetables,fish and less carbs and oils,fats, less bread,butter ,cheese.
