I will be thinking of you all day. I know exactly how you feel. It is ok to feel excited and scared all at the same time. Let us know how you are doing and good luck! :)

Surgery is complete but having complications so they are keeping me overnight. Best part is this... Not only do they put me on the sliding scale as you all warned (thank you) but I am on clear liquis diet... hmmm GRAPE JUICE (who knows how many carbs, Italian ice 20 carbs... and Hot Tea Which they only brought Sugar for and oh almost forgot Regular Jello. Hmmmm I HA Diabetes!!! So my wonderful wife went and got me sugar free Jello. I Love that Woman! and I wont be eating till AM.... Shouls I also mention I brought my test kit and I was 246 pre meal.

Current pain is a 9
No pain in Left leg all in the back

UNREAL that they brought all the incorrect foods.

afterall, youre only IN A HOSPITAL

it really is unreal sometimes.

Your wife is wonderful, major karma points to her for being a good person

and we as diabetics wonder why those that love us and have no clue, believe EVERYTHING that the medical "professionals" say ::smh::

Well, I am truly sorry that you have to spend the night at a hospital, but if you need to be there, just remember that fruit juice seems to have no carb value while you are in the hospital! Seeing that you are at 9 pain level, it is best you that they decided to keep you overnight. I hope you didn't plan on sleeping...lol! Just when you close your eyes the shift change will come around and you will be yet introduced to another new person! I hope things look better for you in the morning!

Great news that the surgery went well . . . shaking head at ever more evidence that docs/hospitals have no clue about diabetes management. Looking forward to more progress reports.

. . . and now I'm going back to bed. Sleep study last night, so of course I haven't had much sleep . . . just got home.

Hmmmm More Proof

Breakfast
1 small pancake
half pint of skim Milk
Coffee
only thing they got right was sugar free syrup

I refused to eat and since I did not have food I could not take my pills
