Long trip to the Dr.

I went to the doctor yesterday. Since last Tuesday I have been giving myself shots of insulin at night before I go to bed. Hopefully to decrease my fasting readings in the morning. Most of the other readings have been ok. She started me out taking 5 units, which didn't look like much. The reading have been a little high, so yesterday she told me to start taking 10 units. Well, last night I fell asleep and didn't do a shot at all. But this morning the reading wasn't bad, about the same as it has been since I started the insulin.

I had an ultrasound to get points, not sure what that means, but she was moving and already practicing breathing, so it didn't even take 2 minutes before she got all the points they were looking for. Then I had a NST, which I now know means a Non stress test. My mom said it was to measure her heart rate when she moved. Everything was fine with all the test. I have to go back in 2 weeks to do it all again. It took about 3 hours total, thank goodness my mom was able to go and help keep me company. Andrew had to work and my wonderful Dad kept the boys. Bless his heart! He said they had fun and it looked like it when we got back. My Dad and Noah drew a "town map" on a big piece of cardboard and they couldn't wait to show it to us.
