Hi Claudia
We're very sorry to hear you've been having such a terrible time. Hope your CT scan brings good news for you and you get on top of your other health problems. We also hope Lacylulu's haematoma will be fixed up easily and quickly.
Don't worry about visiting Hammer's blog. You need to sort out all your problems and get well. We'll keep checking on you to make certain you are okay.
We'll pop over and say a few words to Chris for Fritz too.
Also, we just love the Candle Fur Hope you have on your blog side bar. I'm going to have to stop blogging a little because I want to finish updating Beau's website and adding the Missing Pets web page to include Haggis, Blue and Boogie. Most of my website visitors are from the USA so you just never know. It can't hurt anyway.
Love from Susan and Hammer and the rest of the gang

Hey guys. Hope you are feeling better. Know how you feel about the diabetes. There are many sites on the internet with information and newsletters dealing with diabetes and diet. It's hard at first but it's important. My mom didn't eat properly cause she had the flu and chemo and ended up in the hospital. Her BG fell to 37. I'm just thankful she survived it all cause my dad isn't the best, timewise, for my feedings. The kitties faired even worse.

C-K-C (worrying about you and lacylulu)

Hi Claudia,

I am sorry that I did not come to visit your blog for the whole week. I read about Lacy passing on Boy and Baby's blog and I saw your update on your health condition.

Respiratory problem cannot be taken ligthly. You should have gone to the doctor sooner.Especially now that you are diagnosed with Diabetes.

My mum has diabetes too. Its not too hard to cope but it will depends on how high the sugar value in your blood. The food pyramid should help on deciding what you should or shouldn't eat. http://health.discovery.com/centers/diabetes/newdiabetes/diettips.html
You can also google for more detailed information.

There are a few things that is very important things that you should always remember. I am sure your doctor must have told you but any way, here is my list:

1. Always carry a few sweets in handbag. Take one when you feel giddy. (get those suitable for diabetic patients) because the medication for diabetes bring the glucose level in your blood down so you might feel giddy at time (e.g: when you miss your meal or exercise etc). The low in glucose level might cause one to faint too so please sit down immediately if you are feeling giddy.

2. NEVER walk outside with bare feet.If you get any wounds on your feet that do not heal please see a doctor. Dun wait too long even when the wounds doesn't hurt. Its better to be safe than sorry.

3. Try to get shoes that cover your toes.

There are others but nothing comes to my mind at the moment. I am sure you already know all about them. The sudden change in living habit might be difficult but you will get used to it.

Take care and good luck. I hope your CT Scan result will be a good one.

One more thing. If you ever feel your hands and legs being numb all the time, go consult your doctor. This show that the blood is not circulating well.

Most important of all, never take things for granted. Go to the doctor for advice or at least call up the clinic and dun try test your endurance level when you are not feeling well.
