It didn't work...

Crossing my fingers that is... The doctor told me first that I don't have any infection - just some fluid behind my eardrum. I should take my Zyrtec (and Sudafed as needed) and it should go away as it appears to be the allergy issue I originally thought. Then she went on to inform me that I have the 4th highest case of uncontrolled diabetes she's ever seen. :( My sugar count had jumped from 175 to 275 in 18 months, and my hemoglobin ac1 which should be 6-6.5 is at 12.9.

She's also pretty unhappy with me right now. When I informed her that I am unable to swallow pills unless they are fairly small she got really annoyed because all of the medicines that would effectively treat it are large. She ended up putting me on a medicine she didn't want to because it is small enough I should be able to swallow it, and is getting me a referral to the endochronoligist in town. She wasn't happy because this medicine isn't really the proper one to treat me, and isn't sure how long it will take to get me into the specialist. Hopefully the specialist will have some alteratives to help.

I have 2 LOs from Sunday/Monday, but I need to go shower & get out the door to work so I guess tomorrow...
