I need to start with Tuesday morning. For some reason my alarm didn't go off? Who knows why. I awoke at 9:28am needing to be some place by 10am. I did all my morning things and managed to arrive at my destination with about two minutes to spare. I was really happy as my blood sugar was 89. At bedtime it was 119. I'm doing a happy dance. The first time I've had normal readings at both am and pm.
And then came the ghosts, the friendly kind of course. I put my computer on hibernate when I went to bed last night. At some point it decided it had been in hibernate long enough, shut itself down, did the latest microsoft updates and at 3:55am I awaken to the sound of my computer turning on. Seriously? If it hadn't been for the glow from my screen, I'd have thought I was dreaming. So, I logged in and shut it down.
Fast forward to 9am. I wake up and go to the bathroom. All of the sudden I have the shakes and feel dizzy. For those of you who know I'm dizzy this is different. I make my way back to the bedroom and grab my blood pressure cuff. Need to check it first, could possibly be too low. 106/60 with a pulse rate of 68, pretty normal for me in the morning. Next I pull out the diabetic meter, pop in the lancet, and load up the test strip. Imagine that, my blood sugar is 68. For those who don't know 70-110 is normal. For a diabetic 70-120 is what we shoot for. Below 70 is where you start getting into the low blood sugar issues and passing out.
I ate a few dried pineapple pieces I'd had for making trail mix, then began making breakfast. Now having eaten and taken my morning meds I feel much better. Just a little off, but I'm going to be okay.
Will be monitoring my blood sugars very carefully today. I do not want them dropping below 70 again. I'd like to think this was just a fluke.
Now for those of you who missed the announcement on Monday. The Heir was released as a 99 cent ebook.
