Default New House!

This week my husband and I, along with our 3 kitty overlords, moved into our first house! It was a crazy week, filled with losing heat on the first day (during a blizzard), a broken septic tank leaking into the basement, and finding out that the previous owner didn't pay any village taxes for 3 years. Well, I have heat and can flush the toilet, so I'm sure the rest will work itself out!

I've also moved up to the highest dose of Metformin XR as of yesterday. My numbers in-between meals is stubbornly refusing to budge, though the Metformin has helped tremendously with my dawn phenomenon. PP is the same as always, managed by diet. So maybe I'll get some Lantus as a Christmas gift.

I decided to hunt down the phone number for Dr. Bernstein and asked how much it would cost to do a consultation. $11,000 for just his time the first 3 days which doesn't count travel, hotel, any tests done, etc. None of which is covered by insurance. Holy smokes! I sure would love to pick his brain sometime but for now I'll stick with beating my ignorant doctor over the head with a frying pan.

Happy Thanksgiving!
