After Surgery

I got out out of the Hospital on Thursday. This is a summary of what happened while I was there.

1. My first metatarsal was ressected and the open wound was closed.

2. The infection appears to be under control now.

3. There has been an abatement of insulin resistance and my requirements for insulin have decreased and my blood sugars have continued to improve.

Thanks to the staff at the Phoenix VA for helping me show blood sugar normalization doesn’t have to be dangerous if done correctly, and that diabetics can administer their own medications and monitor their blood sugars while hospitalized.

Thanks also to everyone who prayed for me and liked or commented on my posts while I was in the hospital. Your support was very encouraging and greatly appreciated.

About roguediabetic

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed in August of 93 while serving in the United States Marine Corps. After over eighteen years of poor blood sugar control and early complications including a left big toe amputation I finally figured out how to control my blood sugar. What I finally learned about blood sugar control ultimately had little to do with what I was told.
