Several have asked me to post the drugs hubby takes. As best I can tell, here they are.

I'd have to go back and look at my notes, but on the Novolin, he does both at 6 am, then one at 6 pm and the other one at 10 pm and I'm not sure of the doseages.

Gemfibrozil 600MG x2/day for cholesterol

Simvastatin 40MG x1/2/day for cholesterol

Clindamycin 150mg x3/day for infection

Novolin R 100U/ML

Novolin N 100U/ML

Allopurinol 100mg x4/day for gout

Furosemide 20mg x 1/day for fluid retention

Lisinopril 20mg x 1/day fro high blood pressure

Tramadol 50mg x 1 every 6 hours for pain

So in addition to diabetes, he is being treated for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and tophus gout. The Clindamycin is for the infections in his joints. He also does a lot of Tylenol arthritis and Pepcid AC. And I think that's it.

Kidney function is holding at 30%

He has postponed his March physical once again. Now it is scheduled for this Friday. He is complaining that his hips and knees hurt so bad he can barely walk or sit. I'm pretty sure it's because of the gnarls on his feet and he walks on the outside edges of his feet....that would be enough to throw off anyone's knees and hips.

Good news....he found a pair of shoes to fit his feet. Size 10 WWW at SAS. First time in 3 years that he has had "real" shoes on his feet. WWW in order to fit around all the gnarly growths on his feet. They only had one pair, so he has ordered a second pair and hopefully they will arrive this week.

Another quiet day as he went into the office. I plan to get loads done!
