The weekend has passed (in more ways than one), and while it was somewhat kind to me, it also presented me with the start of the adaptation to the new drug dosage. And had a few pleasant surprises as well.
I'm having a terrible time with the Metformin increased dosage, but I expected that and have spent way too much time either in or near a bathroom for the weekend. Just never know where I'm going to be when I have to go to the loo at the moment, so it's a really annoying process. The only good news is that the blood glucose readings are already showing some marked improvement.
Had Friday night off from gaming, since it's Father's Day, and the Sunday group is off today as well (although I'm not worried about that since spross
is currently running Hollow Earth Expedition
, giving me a break from running on Sundays, which is good), so that simplified the weekend as well for me.
I've been a fan of Sass Jordan
, one of the best Canadian female rock 'n roll-ers, for a long time. Every time Canadian Idol
(our far superior version of American Idol
) airs, I am just amazed and pleased at Sass's musical knowledge, and the sheer lack of Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul. So I caved in on Saturday, and went to CD Warehouse with spross
and picked up Sass's CDs again. I say "again", because I had them at one point, and for some reason I sold them off. I've got all seven CDs again (Tell Somebody
, Hot Gossip
, and the two that I keep forgetting the titles of), and have remembered all over again what it was about her stuff that I really liked.
Took mom grocery shopping late Saturday afternoon, and then came home and had a nice stir fry of beef and vegetables. Then got a surprise... Kathy, Steve and the kids (Ellie and Jessica) came over to keep me company, as Steve and Kathy felt that I was a bit down and all after the Diabetes Clinic appointment. Nick and his girlfriend, Angie, showed up a bit later...and they brought two six-packs of Tim Horton donuts with them, on Kathy's orders.
Had a pleasant evening for sure, playing some A Faery's Tale
rpg for a while, and the playing some Ticket to Ride: Europe
and just hanging and talking for a while. I had *one* donut, a Boston Cream, that was absolutely delish, and then had a pleasant sleep except for getting up to go to the bathroom twice in the middle of the night. *sigh*
Sunday was pretty quiet, and SteveR came over during the early afternoon. He needed to pick up a Father's Day card, and I had to pick up some birthday cards, so we took care of that.
Made a tuna casserole for supper last night, and that seems to have helped calm my bowels down somewhat, but not completely. Spent the evening reading Jack McDevitt's Eternity Road
, a nice little post-apocalyptic world story, watched a bit of the first season of Babylon 5
again, in between bouts of diarrhea. Couldn't have it perfect, now could I?
Back at work this morning, drinking herbal tea and a bit of decaf diet Coke (not together, silly people!) in the hopes of it calming my stomach. So far, so good, even if I am feeling somewhat nauseous. ::crossing fingers::
