First, Patrick called on his way to work to say "Good luck on your test!" to which my immediate response was, "Do you have the wrong number?"
No he didn't. I just completely forgot about my glucose tolerance test this morning. Thank goodness he called or my doctor's office would be very mad at me. I quickly got ready to make the half hour drive up there (I was late) and scrambled out the door throwing things I thought I would need into my purse.
For those of you who haven't had a glucose test, you have to wait around for an hour after drinking this sugar concoction before they can prick your finger and test your blood glucose levels. I wanted to be sure I was very prepared for this hour long wait. So I checked in, sat down, and went to take out something to entertain myself. This is what I saw:
Are you kidding? My TV remote? Did I think it would work on the TVs in the waiting room? I know it's a universal remote, but... seriously, what is wrong with me?
Good news - I passed both tests (they also test for iron levels to see if I'm anemic). But just barely. My glucose reading was 138. My doctor's office considers 140 failing. Good thing, I have seen other offices that consider failing at 130. I do NOT want to have to do the 3 hour test that comes with a failing score, especially since I think I am coming down from my sugar high and I feel awful.
More recent Sharkbait related news... I had my first experience with the infamous swollen feet syndrome. On our way back home from MD Tuesday night. My wonderful husband drove the whole 7 hours, and I woke up when we got home and could not walk. My feet swelled so far past normal, I no longer had ankle joints. I'm not talking cankles, I mean I literally could not physically move my feet at the joint. I had to crawl up the stairs and into bed. Miserable.
That's all for now, folks. I'm off to take my daily nap (new necessary development since I hit the 26 week mark).
