Brag on Dustin...

I took my 3 hour glucose test on Wednesday and failed. I had an appointment with a dietician on Friday, and currently I have to test my blood sugar 4 times a day, and then report back on Wednesday. There is a really good chance when I send my readings on Wednesday I will be put on insulin, because 1/2 of my numbers are still too high even on the diet [and no I am not cheating :o)] The monitor came with enough test strips to get me through last night. The test strips are crazy expensive (like on sale for $1 a piece), so thankfully he wrote me a Rx for them and it was $25 for 200. We were not by the CVS all weekend, and finally stopped after church last night (almost 8 pm) to pick them up. They have no record of the Rx and it is late on a Sunday night and I have to have one to do a fasting test 1st thing in the morning. So I call the doctor and he resends it.

By now it is late, the kids are in bed and we both go to sleep completely without thinking. I wake up this morning to go to the bathroom and sitting on the cabinet is my test strips. My wonderful hubby got up at 6 am and drove to CVS and waited for them to fill it (they hadn't seen the Rx) and then came home to finish getting ready for work. He then made me breakfast and took Brandt to school, it was wonderful! Note Brandt has to be at school by 8 and the other boys not until 9. The younger boys are usually a sleep when I need to leave with Brandt, so I have to wake them and get them ready quickly then take Brandt then kill an hour before they can go. So anytime Dustin can take him for me makes my whole day go smoother. Problem is Brandt can't be dropped off until 7:30 and most days Dustin is at work by 7.

I hadn't even asked Dustin to go get the Rx, but he did anyway and I was extremely impressed and happy. lol I was planning on not eating breakfast, then taking Brandt and on the way to take the other boys stopping and getting it. However, they want the reading 1st thing in the AM, because movement can effect the number and not give a true reading. Dustin heard me say this and decided he would take care of it for me. One of the many reasons I love him!

Oh, wait! I forgot to say that I'm sorry you didn't pass your test. That's a huge bummer! I'm so hoping I don't wind up with GD since I'm pregnant with twins! I've heard the risk is higher.

Hang in there and keep us updated on your progress!!
