The Best Christmas Gift Ever

Last week I had an appointment for my foot.  In the fall, he switched me to 3 weeks and when I saw him in November, he said 4 weeks.  Last Thursday it had been a month since I saw him.  That was the longest I have gone without seeing a doctor in almost 3 years.

Although my foot did not look closed to me, he said it was.  My sister had told me that but as I said, it didn’t look closed.  She said the skin is dark in that area most likely because of the stuff we were putting on it, but it really is closed.  I guess it was 2 against 1 so officially, it is closed!


It has been a very long, long road – if you aren’t familiar with my story, this mess started in April, 2011 so almost 3 years ago.

My Favorite Things

Today’s topic is:

Click for the My Favorite Things – Sunday 5/18 Link List. As we wrap up another Diabetes Blog Week, let’s share a few of our favorite things from the week. This can be anything from a #DBlogWeek post you loved, a fantastic new-to-you blog you found, a picture someone included in a post that spoke to you, or comment left on your blog that made you smile. Anything you liked is worth sharing!


I had a few things that I really liked this week but will limit it to two. 

At the top of the list was Laddie at Test, Guess and Go wrote,  A Diabetes Poem by Abby the Black Lab.  I am just a big softy for pups, so really enjoyed that one.  My dog Alex couldn’t tell me I was low, but I know he knew something wasn’t right.  A couple times I would wake up after passing out and he would be sitting there shaking.  It really broke my heart to see him so scared because of me.  We think about what this disease does to the people in our lives, but we don’t always stop and think about how it impacts our furkids.  So Abby’s poem really hit home for me.

Saturday Snapshops: Some Days

I am a day late and yesterday’s topic was:

Click for the Saturday Snapshots – Saturday 5/17 Link List. Back for another year, let’s show everyone what life with diabetes looks like! With a nod to the Diabetes 365 project, let’s grab our cameras again and share some more d-related pictures. Post as many or as few as you’d like. Feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures, or leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.

Maybe I should change the title to Sunday snapshots!
