Seems to be the number of the day!

As I have ‘twitted’, I have a cold/infection thing that has been going around my office for a couple of weeks now. Last night I took the last dose of my three day Z-pack (wiki says the three day dose is appropriately a Tri-Pak). Considering the entire round of anitbiotics is only three days, the doses are rather large. The first two days I had a little nausea as a side effect (as noted on the packaging). Last night, I had a little more than nausea about an hour and a half after I took my dose. 😐

It was also an hour and a half after I had eaten about 50 carbs and taken the corresponding insulin. As soon as I was able, I tested my blood sugar and was surprised to see a 351 looking back at me.

I would have thought for sure I was low. Three correction doses, two water bottles, and 5.5 hours of sleep later and I woke up at 127 this morning. Stupid diabetes!

351 is also important for a much more fun reason. Can you believe I am just two weeks away from finishing the Diabetes365 project?!

I want to post something fun and exciting for my final picture, and while I am generally a very fun and exciting person, I am coming up short on ideas for this one. What would you like to see for my final picture?

Here’s a sample of some of the shots I have included so far. You can also click the diabetes365 link at the top of this page. It is not as updated as the Flickr set because… well, because it takes so much time!
