Late night

Last night we worked on programming a router for DSL. I made a mistake that made us have to stay several hours longer than we really needed to. I hate when I do that! I was in a fog though, from being tired and on dex. It’s not really conducive to doing good work. We left about 3:30 am, and I was able to sleep almost immediately when I got home. I slept until after 2:00 this afternoon! I could go back to bed now, but I hate wasting so much sleeping.

I start my 4 days off of dex tomorrow. Thank goodness. I like the days off. After a few more months, I’ll go to taking dex for just 4 days a month (40 mg each day). That will be a relief. One thing dex does do though, is help with aches and pains. I’ll notice that, for sure. I have some arthritis which will ache more.

My blood sugar has been good this time around. Still high for me, but better than in the past. For example, when I woke up this morning, it was 102 mg/dL. There have been times in the past when it was near 200. Usually, I can expect it to be somewhere between 75 and 90. After a meal, it can go to 130 or so. When on dex though, look out! It can go as high as 230. I keep on walking and avoid simple carbs and sugars to keep it as low as I can.
