I had a PCP appt on 3/31- had blood work done and everything looked AMAZING except for my stinking blood sugar! I’ll admit that I wasn’t taking the medicine as consistently as I should have been, but to my defense it’s super hard to take and it wasn’t even that effective anymore. SO- my doctor prescribed me Glyburide to take in addition to Metformin. Now I’m taking 1 Glyburide tablet and 1 Metformin tablet twice a day and my blood sugars have been consistently getting better! I’ve seen readings of 94! Fasting levels of 135! It’s much easier to take my medicine, and it’s obviously much more effective. I have been eating so well that it even surprises me! I LOVE APPLES! I’ve always avoided them because as a kid I didn’t like the texture, or the soft spots, or when they got all gritty feeling… I had issues, anyways, now that I’m just about 30 I cannot get enough of them! Haha, they are nature’s candy in my eyes! I even had one for breakfast, and my favorite thing to do is put a little pb on it, but plain is amazing too! I could go on, but really, I’ll stop.
My A1C is going to be re-evaluated at the end of May to have it all checked again and get my referral to see Reshef. Life is going to get a lot more interesting for us soon! Not only are we pursuing treatment, but we’re getting our house ready to put on the market! An opportunity arose and it would be very foolish of us to turn it down. My mother in law’s house caught on fire and is considered a total loss. Luckily for her she was smart and even though the house has been paid off for decades she continued to insure it and had a great replacement cost on it. This house is being renovated and though it’s going to stay the same size (pretty dang small, and only two bedrooms, 1 bath) it’s going to be completely brand new inside and out. New appliances, new cabinets, floors, walls, carpet, bathroom, everything is being brought up to code… and my MIL is begging us to sell our house and live there to save money (she has another property that she lives at so we would NOT be living with her)! There are so many pros for doing this, yet surprisingly a lot of cons too, but we’re making it happen because we know that it’s going to be a temporary inconvenience for so much gain in the long run. We haven’t worked out the details too much but I know we’d maintain the property, pay the utilities like we would in our home, and I’m certain we would put monthly deposits in a savings account for her to pay the insurance/property taxes. Even with those expenses we’ll be debt free shortly after the sale of our home and on to saving to build our dream home. For now, we’re simplifying things in our home, fixing the things that need to be fixed, and getting it ready to sell. Once the renovations on the new house are complete (should be November) we’re contemplating moving into it so that we are able to stage our home for easier sale. Lots of things to figure out, but SO SO SO excited for what this means for our future!
