Came in to work today, and am glad I did so. The weather when I got up was still...night, but I realised right before I left the house to pick up my co-workers for the car pool that it was still pretty dim outside and quite cold and rainy. Glad to be indoors, even if I've got a pile of work on my desk that will take me several days of work to sort through.
Yesterday's appointment with the Diabetes specialist went better than I expected it to. My a1C has dropped from 9.2 (back in April) down to 7.9, and the doctor was very pleased with that change, though he wants it lower. My cholesterol levels have fallen nicely, but my triglycerides are still somewhat high. Even though they've dropped as well by a couple of points. My weight is up by three pounds, but my blood pressure is holding steady at mid-normal levels. So, for now, there will be no change to my medications, and I am to keep up doing whatever it is I've been doing.
The only bad thing about the appointment is that it was set for 3:20 pm, but I didn't see the doctor until after 4:10 pm or so, as he was runningk late. I did manage to get back home and grab the stuff I needed for Geology class last night, but didn't have any time to take a break and relax a bit, more's the pity.
Class last night was pretty interesting, as we're dealing with some of the history of famous geological finds and studies, as well as learning about some of the ins and outs of rock strata. Fascinating stuff, to be honest, but Goddess was I tired when I got home from class last night!
Meanwhile for now, another day and another dollar.
