Thoughts of Thursday August 4, 2016

It’s Thursday morning in Ottawa. Another hot day shaping up in the city once more.

Sitting in the office this morning, I’m contemplating the chat I had with the doctor yesterday at the Diabetes Clinic. My a1C was marginally up by 0.3 points, so we’ve made one change, upping my dose of Invokana to 300 mg/day. He also gave me a new prescription for the Gabapentin, upping the dose to 300 mg 3 times per day. Hopefully, that will actually help with the leg pain, and not have too many side effects.

Today, I’ll be going to the Footcare Clinic for my usual 5 to 6 weeks footcare appointment, and I’m dreading that because of my foot swelling and the pain in my legs. After that, I have another appointment at the hospital for some tests that I’m not going to talk about until later.

As a result of all this, most of my early to mid-afternoon will be otherwise occupied with stuff, so I’m not sure whether I’ll be active here or not for the rest of the day.

In the meantime, doing what I can here at the office this morning while not thinking about other things.

Some peppermint tea is in order, methinks. 🙂

Being a diabetic can really make some parts of the life difficult :/
