George very kindly wakes me, drives me to the clinic, brings coffee and a slice of bread with us, and makes totally inoffensive remarks all the way through the experience. While he is being kind, I am making every effort not to repeat the mantra, “I hate this, I hate this…”
It’s blood letting time again. I have to admit that I put off checking the “Patient Portal.” That’s where all the news from the doctor’s office resides these days. For years I couldn’t access it. For some reason, I couldn’t get in. Now they have a new program, I can get in, and I have no excuse to avoid it. At all, darn it.
And there it was. All sorts of things she wants to know, a long list. The only one I am worried about is the blood sugar. I’ve been fudging on my diet and exercise program. Little exercise because of the hole in my leg. And I sneak carbs…those wonderful things usually eaten with butter. My fate is sealed if it’s up again. I’ll have to stop fudging and start behaving. I’m not good at behaving.
