well, its been a different kind of day...

thought I might have a UTI...
got up this morning and headed for the doctor's office...
they have a weekend clinic...
my doctor wasn't in today and I saw a NP...
tested my urine...
bacteria 0...
sugar 1000...
so they did a couple blood tests and were going to send me home...
but I asked for a glucose test before I left and they dug up a meter...
425...
that got me a trip to the ER and a shot fast acting insulin...
I came home with 2 pill insulins and a test meter...
my doctor is out on Mondays, so I have to see him on Tuesday...
no sugars and no carbs for 4 days until I see him to get this down...

it could be Type 2 diabeties...
or...
it could be the infection...
so have more antibiotics...

so we have been there all day...
I had breakfast before I could go...
and supper when we got home...
they gave me water and crackers in the ER for my IBS...
but I ate light and tested...
277...
so it's coming down already...

I only had about 3 hours of sleep last night, so I am heading for bed...
it wore me out...
I will try to get on later, but it may be tomorrow...
hope you are all ok...

I hope you are resting, Tete.
Did they give you Metformin, and a meter?
Infections really mess up your sugar.
I'm glad you went in to the ER. Your count was waaaay up there!!!! So glad it's coming down.
Smooches.

Hugs to you, you've sure had it rough lately.
Rest and hopefully your sugar will straighten out. Some meds make it go whacky.

TETE! I am worried about you! A high blood sugar is nothing to fool with. I hope it is temporary. I am praying for you my dear friend

Well that was frightening. I know blood sugar is best when under 100 so that is good you got quick treatment. How sweet you are to report in to us. Now you go and rest up, dear blog friend.
