The Day I've Been DREAMING Of!!!

May 29, 2009

That's right! It is finally, finally, finally here! I have dreamed of this day for sooo long, but honestly didn't know if it would ever really come. But, it has.....Last night, for the first time, I went down to 0 units of insulin...wait, let me repeat that, in case you mised it...0, zero, zip, zilch units of insulin!!!!!!!!!! And, more importantly, this morning, my sugar was 108--lower than it's been in quite a while. My numbers have been fine, but 108 is fabulous! I will admit I am up a bit earlier than normal. Usually, I test about about 8-9am, sometimes even 10am, and today I am testing at 7:15am. But, ya know what? I don't care. I am going to enjoy this!!!!! I will enjoy every little bit of it. No more needles! I can't even believe that! No more worrying about bringing refrigerated medication in a cooler, when I go away on vacation! I just feel healthier than I did yesterday. I mentally, feel better knowing there's one less medication in my system. My body is regulating and becoming, dare I say, normalish.

As you can see, I am just plain psyched! I am off to get ready for my Good Samaritan Hospital Support Group meeting. I can't wait to tell them all my fabulous news! I love my RNY and I love myself for finally doing it!

Have a fabulous day, I know I will!
