While driving to Orlando, Jon tells me that he is thirsty all the time. On the 3 1/2 hour drive we stopped 4 times, half to get something to drink and nurse the other half to pee! I told him that when we get home that I was going to make him a doctor appointment. And that is exactly what I did. On Monday I got a same day appointment. If any of you know Jon, he was pissed. He does NOT go to doctors. But other than getting his blood drawn it was a pretty painless visit. They didn't even chide him for smoking!
Tuesday we got the results back. Jon has type 2 diabetes. Armed with a couple diabetic cookbooks, exercise, a couple of medications and a blood glucose tester we are going to get this under control. The first thing my mom asked me was "what are his numbers?" His glucose was 396, which is seriously high!
From what we have learned from the internet the diabetic diet is mainly cutting out a lot of carbs and eating more veggies. Things with carbs include alcohol, pasta, bread, fruit and soda. I could live on a diet of only carbs! But we are going this together and I too will be eating this new diet.
I love, love, love my husband and could not imagine going this life without him. <3
