    Have to agree with @ianpspurs post fully

    A lot of juggling going on there

    No easy task keeping anything in balance.

    Best wishes for tomorrow.
    You say 'fasting' I presume only water

    I know some say don't fast, but I am of the school that says I want as blank a slate as possible for any line of tests .

    HBA1c particularly

    I never realised his much those other blood numbers revealed.

    And the only way I think I could get as level a playing field as possible each time was to fast from 8pm...and then only water after

    No way I could remember to have one coffee or a snack next time around to match previous tests conditions

    As said hope all goes well and reflects some light on conditions, progress & the best ways forward...x

    Hospital was busy, indeed
    A little respite would be most welcome, I think

    I finally got transport at 6;50

    Been home a while,
    A 5 guys burger to celebrate
    A wallet buster, but oh so nice

    In bed now, cream crackered.
    Sleep not too far away

    A little transition back to real food, then onwards with full recovery

    Thanks you NHS.

    Surgeons, doctors , nurses, HCA, porters, radiologist, catering, everybody from top to bottom.

    One team.
    One goal
    Our best interests .

    Why can't govt be like that .?

    Love to you all.
    Pass it on & tell
    Your loved ones

    Life can change in a moment.
    Time to do it later, isn't guaranteed.

    Stay safe x

    Glad you got home safely @jjraak
    I am guessing you have not been able to sleep yet, but just relieved you are back home again.
    Take it easy. Sleep will come soon.
    Your mind needs to wind down from the busyness of the hospital.
    Take care x

    Morning all.

    Did half of my leafleting before catching the Bozo Beat-Up Fest. I can't comment on that until I have been told more by Sue Gray. ;);)
    While visiting front doors I found more than one instance of "fake grass". Yes really. Some people have green plastic polymer instead of real grass. Hello? COP26. Climate change? Que pasa?

    Put the real test kit to work at 0630 and got an FBG result of 8.6 mmo/lt. which is better than yesterday.

    Have a great day.

    All the best for today and hope that tests and CT results gel into some long term plan.

    Be careful of that Sue Gray and don’t swear at any police by your side gate or you will get the chop.

    Good morning everyone under what looks to be a cloudless sky here in the dark and dangerous north. What a fun packed day yesterday, most of it entirely unsupervised. How long does it take two blokes to fit a set of gates? Well three hours it seems. Very pleased with the result and the speed of processing; the guy only measured up and quoted mid December. Making gates is not as busy an occupation as being a plumber it seems. Mrs Miggins and her three sisters survived their trip to the theatre - Hairspray - not my cup of tea but they said that they enjoyed it. Bin day today so I am hoping for a good view of the cavalcade as it clatters down the street. Glad you finally got home @jjraak, nothing so good as sleeping in your own bed. Visit to the kitchen suppliers today to check design on their CAD machine and do some coatings - what fun! Have to be back by 1330 for my telephone consult with the spine clinic folk - lay it on thick according to my GP.

    Hope that your today is better than your yesterday. Best make some koffy.

    I must admit that we had fake grass in our last house - difficult to roll and tasted dreadful.

    Morning all. @SlimLizzy hugs and posting here is irrelevant just now. IDK my fbg which is good for my peace of mind and probably for my D control. Everything i eat and do has been tested to distraction anyhow. I did change my main meal yesterday. Not Mackerel salad but Scomber scombrus salad:angelic: @dunelm thanks for the art, good luck with the kitchen designer and spine clinic. I have a face to face in Feb. :D for the rif on artificial grass. @jjraak :woot: for being home again. @dogslife hope all goes well and hug for the cold. Roast chicken for me today - green veggies are fine I but can't deal with that without gravy. LC gravy has so far been a nonsense for me and I won't put butter on veggies. Two granddaughters all day, school pickup for Grandson and family meal. None of the food, school pickup or family meal are "safe" -meh. @True Blue Sue Gray? Game plan seems to be wait, deny any damaging findings, make her resign then style it out. The Blue Team urgently need our Spine experts @dunelm. Largely pointless asking y'all to take care that's now considered virtual treason in Ingerland.

    5.5 this morning. Really surprised that it wasn't much higher. Was so hungry when I got back from classes last night so had a few cashews and some kefir. Still really hungry so more cashews and Montezuma 100%. Still really hungry so had some protein powder. Although still hungry I did manage to stop there.

    This morning, unsurprisingly, was not hungry at all so didn't have my normal breakfast.
