... And He is Supposed to be Taking Care of Me

This is Russ' wife, The Lovely Janis, hijacking his posting privileges at least for one night. So please be kind and patient as my typing and spelling may be a little off and Russ-- you can't saying anything about what I write as you gave me free rein here ...

You see Russ has been sick the last few weeks and being a man has thwarted my suggestions on going to the doctor . . . until today. He finally felt crappy enough to go and guess what --he's in the hospital. He has bronchitis but that is not why he is in the hospital. His blood sugar level was 700!!! 200 and below is normal. Let’s just say the symptoms have been there for at least 3-4 weeks and he is very lucky he isn't in a diabetic coma. The doctor has diagnosed diabetes, but we will see how he responds to treatment at the hospital and how well he can change his diet, activity level and such.


Nonetheless, he is responding well to treatment at the hospital-- IV with Insulin. The diabetes educator has been in and the dietician will stop by tomorrow. And he thought us having a baby was going to be a life change . . . now it’s his diet and activity level too. We will see what they send home with as far as medication—they have already given us a blood sugar monitor (ok we and the insurance will end up paying for it).

I came home to let the Bandit the Wonder Dog out and feed him and our cats - Bob and Hilton and write this post before heading back over to the hospital tonight.

Russ did have one comment for everyone: "Sure, my life of dietary excess led me to this point, but still, I BLAME THOSE DAMN SEAHORSES!!!" Laura – I think he has some obsession with those seahorses and movie quotes.

He also told me if I had time and I could figure it out, I will post pics of the Bacon Festival.

Now as far as I go -- I am doing fine – I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday and all my pre-eclampsia symptoms are in check and our target is 37 weeks. I will have a post for the CakeEaters hopefully tomorrow for a week in review type thing -- we went to Baby Care class last week so there will also be report on that too.

Russ is keeping a positive outlook on all this and hopefully realizes the wakeup call he has gotten and can make a change. That is from the concerned wife and mother of his baby that is almost here.

I will comment once I get back later tonight.
