Happy New Year's

It's New Year's eve here.  Hubby caught a cold and is in bed, sick.  Tomorrow is our anniversary.  He said, "pick yourself up a really nice anniversary card."  I laughed!  Poor guy - at least he's thinking about it!  I hope he's better in the morning.  Obviously we're not staying up to watch the ball drop.

Tomorrow, I am starting a healthy eating plan.  It will be interesting.  He will either have to eat what I do, or fix for himself.  What do you think?  I'm also going to ask him to get on the treadmill every single day.  I'm hoping that if I do it, he will....even if it's out of guilt.

Here is wishing each of you a year where your spouse follows the "rules" and does whatever it takes to keep his/her diabetes in control.  Let's hope the roller coaster is a flat ride in 2012!

Last night, he literally blew me out of the room.  I woke up nearly vomiting in my sleep from the smell.  Beyond anything I have ever had to smell.  Fell asleep on the sofa and my back has hurt all day long.

My sister and brother-in-law surprised us with a visit today. It always helps when she comes to town.  She is my best friend and really understands everything I'm going through.  She's also an incredible artist, so there's no end to the fun we can have together.

Hubby stayed up with us til 9 pm and then went to bed.  No idea what I'll do if he "blows" me out of the room tonight.  He really needs to go see his doctor(s), but I don't think he's going to.  He was supposed to get labs done this week and didn't do that either.

He went to see his eye doctor today and he has cataracts.  Now, that wouldn't be any big deal, except he has had his corneas replaced, so removing the cataracts will be a bit more complex than normal surgery.

The doctor said he can put it off til summer.  I think the guy just doesn't want to have any more surgery of any type.

So, until then, I will be doing all the driving.

What next?
