It’s another hot day so we’re not doing much, though will be going out to collect Hubby’s meds later this afternoon.
We had a trip to the garden centre first thing to buy some pots to play Hunt the Biscuit with Maya (like find the pea). Our neighbour had given us three which were a perfect size, but being plastic, Maya only had to sniff them and they fell over, so we needed something heavier like clay. They had exactly what we wanted for just over £1 each, so very reasonable, and we also found a treat dispenser.
It’s called a Wobbly Ball and hers is green. She’s one smart cookie as it took her 20 seconds to fathom out that she had to knock the ball over and roll it to get the treats out. Note to self: bigger treats, not kibble and Hubby will put some weight in the bottom so that it wobbles more and not fall over so easily! She’s fast asleep now.
Well, I finally had my phone call from the nurse just after midday.
I had already checked the internet for more details on the Ezetimibe combi she’d mentioned on our last two conversations, and the combi bit is……………………. a statin. The side effects can be horrendous, so I was ready for her should she start pushing it.
She didn’t! In fact, she was very pleased with my numbers as my sugars are now in the pre -diabetic bracket and my bad cholesterol has come down to 4 from 5.2 three blood tests ago. They would rather it was 3, so she casually asked if I’d consider taking anything else to which I replied no, and she said that was fine! Even better, because things are looking so good, I am back on annual watch rather than every 3 months as I had been for the past 8 months and I can still control it with diet.
Yay, way to go ME and I’m doing something right!
