It is so nice to have the weather changing into Spring. The drive into my doctor is so much more pleasant without ice, snow, and rain. The wind, as we do have that during Spring, can be managed. But, there are times when driving the wind is so hard that it plasters the tumbleweeds against the car. On occasion, we have had to stop the car and pull off the tumbleweeds.
Arrived for the MRI test, and find that I need another IV. It has been a while since my last MRI, and I forgot that this was the machine with the long tube you are enclosed in. On top of that, I am not good at holding my breath... and the entire test is "breathe in" and "hold." When I quickly breathe in, my asthma kicks in and I want to cough. Try holding a cough in, and keep your abdoman extended. Really it is not bad if you are not claustrophobic or have asthma. If you do have these issues, the short test can appear long!
Afterwards wanted to go eat! Had to fast before the MRI. Gloria and I went to a new Italian place in Kennewick. Since I have been having an issue with tomato burning my mouth, we ordered pizza with olive oil and pesto sauce as the base. Wow, never would have believed it... better than with tomato sauce base. Only ordered a small pizza as I was going to my doctor in two hours
Then, went to primary doctor about my diabetic issues. He said that as long as I have chemo/steroids, inhaler/steroids, and other issues that my glucose levels would be up. I have to test several times a day, and now insulin shots twice a day. The amount goes up daily until my glucose reaches an acceptable number at twelve hour intervals.
I am doing more in-depth research into N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine and Alpha Lipoic Sustain. This promotes Glutathione and is a precursor to Glutathoine. My sister says that since she has been on this her blood pressure is better. I have also read that it may help my glucose levels. So... read, read, read and hope I find something that will help.
Today (Friday, 03/18) I would like to send prayers for a cancer surgery that is taking place in Seattle right now. Once of my son's co-workers (Washington State Patrol) is having a serious cancer surgery. I am proud of the local Tri-Cities police/justice community and how they have come together to help this young man and his family. This is going to be a long recovery. I believe with God's influence, a blessed recovery is possible.
