Home Again

I'm back from California after a relatively restful weekend in Oregon. I actually could have posted something yesterday because Lisa had me connect her father's laptop computer to their home network so we could try and download a driver that would let us properly manage the touchpad on the machine. (She wants to disable "tapping" on the touchpad, and the driver software on the machine doesn't even show tapping as an option.) But we spent so much time looking for the drivers (without success) that I decided not to take the time. I didn't really go to Oregon intending to spend a bunch of time sitting behind a computer.

Monday morning, I have an appointment with my doctor for my regular diabetes checkup. For now, I'm seeing my doctor every three months. If the weight I took on the balance scale up in Oregon was correct, I've regained ten of the eighty pounds I initially shed after I was diagnosed, so I guess I need to get back on the program and start eating less and exercising more again. It has been difficult to do this while traveling, but that's only an excuse, and diabetes doesn't listen to excuses. I also need to remember to print out my blood pressure and blood sugar records for the doctor before I head out tomorrow morning. Overall the numbers are good, but I've had a couple of spikes along the way that worry me. I hope Dr. Matthews will be able to tell me how much I should worry about them.
