It's still too early to tell what will happen down the road with my temporary diabetes...
But today for sure I am still diabetic.
My blood sugar numbers are really very good. That's only because I'm still injecting myself with 22 units of long-lasting insulin every night! And I eat 3 (or fewer) carbohydrates per meal.
At bedtime, I'm using a Lantus "pen" to inject myself with the long-lasting insulin. The pen is easy to deal with. Surprisingly, it doesn't hurt.
My feet and ankles have been swollen since I got home. Today I talked to the neurosciences surgery resident on-call, who assured me that there was nothing about my surgery that could result in swelling. That's great news. Tonight I was lying on couch with feet straight up in air, which helped shrink feet. Oh, and we watched the Happy Gilmore movie.
