first thing this morning I had a physical with my new doctor… I still go to CancerCare regularly so the process was quite simple…

he is very nice and down-to-earth… discovered that there is lots of diabetes in his family… bad for him, but good for me…

the great news is that I don’t have to poke myself unless I am not feeling well… he was pleased with my blood sugar numbers and very impressed with the printed summary I brought from my UltraMini, lol… he hadn’t seen one before… he was also very impressed with the fact that I had brought my A1C number down from 8.7 in November to 6.2 in March through diet and exercise… hoping today’s blood tests will show it even lower…

he’s into technology and we talked about how great the MyFitnessPal app is… he uses it as well…

  
the not-so-good news is that he wants me to lose more weight… going to start with fifteen pounds, although he would like twenty-five…

talked about taking drugs, but we will discuss it again when I see him in 3 months…

took myself out for breakfast once I was done… had an egg Benedict at Perkins

  
didn’t even feel that uncomfortable being there on my own…

once home, spent some time in the garden before the rain started…


must have been fifty sparrows in the garden at once… think they were filling up on food and water before the weather changed…

identified a wood frog as the guest in the bathtub pond…  put a board in to act as a bridge in case it wanted to get out… previously we’d only had Leopard frogs…

happily there were four morning glory blooms today…
