Unfortunately, heartburn is still in full effect, but not so unfortunate - I can start on Prilosec again to control it. Makes me a little nervous to take more medication, but everything I've researched says it's safe as well as the NP so I'm putting my faith in that. Also unfortunate is the fact that my blood sugars are not controlled. My fasting blood sugars are hovering in the low 100s and my postprandial (aka after meals) blood sugars are averaging in the 140 - 150s. Not great. Not super high either, but elevated enough I'll probably be put on yet another medication - Glyburide. Fun fun.
I also found out that I've actually lost almost three pounds in the last two weeks. I try to eat. I do, but it's difficult lately. I'm not hungry most of the time and when I am, I'm full before I've eaten maybe half of what's on my plate. Anyone else have experience with this? What did you do to maximize your calorie intake with the least amount of food while still maintaining some sense of healthy eating? Or could you?
And last but not least, we decided to move forward with buying a house before PB&J get here, so Momma B and I went to some open houses on Sunday and met a great real estate agent that we hired that day. We found a great little house that we both loved and found out my credit and income put us right in place to buy now. SO EXCITING! My very first offer on a house was submitted this morning. I think I'm holding it together pretty well, considering. Not too nervous, not too excited. Even if this house doesn't come through, we at least got the ball rolling and are on the official search. How awesome is that?! Hopefully we'll hear soon. According to our agent there are multiple offers (yes! even in this market.), but he's pretty confident ours will be the best one after feeling out the seller's agent. Keeping our fingers crossed for good news. Can I just say though ... WOW do they need a lot of paperwork! Who knew!
