The day has, in a way, been fairly routine: apart from a call from my son-in-law, about some family business, and the numbers I read on the blood sugar monitor this morning. My blood sugar level was - well, it was too high, by far. And I realized that what I'd written off as an odd variation on my usual winter cold might be something else.
I'll know more, when results from lab work on a sample of my blood come back: but right now it looks like I'm okay.
"Okay" is a relative term, of course. But there doesn't seem to be anything obviously wrong with me - apart from being overweight, diabetic and on medication for depression. Also serious wax buildup in my left ear - that may be where some of the interesting sensations were coming form.
Hey, 'it could be worse,' as we say here in Minnesota.
And: unexpected good news. I'm down 10 pounds from December, 2008, when I was in last.
Now, for something really important: My wife, son and #3 daughter are at Soo Bahk Do class, I'm wrapping up the day's work a few hours early, and getting ready to kick back and relax a bit.
And pray the Chaplet. More about that, another time.
