My endocrine doc, Dr. Doelle (pronounced like Deli), came today too and even he had a smile on his face! I don't think I've ever seen that from him...I've been a frustrating patient for quite sometime :-P (He treats my diabetes and hypothyroidism) He was happy that my numbers were better and also said my thyroid levels looked good. I asked that the diabetes nurses and dietician come in so that I can get a refresher course on all things diabetic. I'm finally at a place, mentally, where I'm receptive to the information...it only took 13 years :-D
I haven't seen Dr. Hornick yet today, so no info there. All in all, things are looking up. Now, if I could only get a good nights sleep!
So, somebody (*cough cough* STACI *cough cough* ;-P) thought I needed more pictures on here and not JUST on Facebook, so I took some pictures with my iPhone today. Maybe you can get a little better idea of what my favorite "vacation home" looks like.
This is my side of the room. I'm in a double right now because there are so many of us right now. We have to be by ourselves because we don't want to catch anybody else's bugs, so this time I get a really big room with TWO windows :) There are 13 CFers right now (8 adults, 3 peds, I think). That is a HUGE number at one time. I guess the weather isn't helping any of us this time.
What I see when I lay in my bed. That's the white board where my goals are written and the fabulous (HAHA!) TV. Peds have it so good with their flat screen TVs and DVD players and...uh...no bitterness here :-P
The other side of the room. Notice the fabulous faux wood sink cabinet and stunning bed clothes...just so stylish. The bed is mussed because Jake slept in it on Saturday. It's nice to have an extra bed he can sleep in instead of the chair or a cot that he brings with him.
My bathroom. Very oddly shaped. The mirror on the sink cabinet-thingy allows me to see the top of my head. Quite handy. Hence the hand mirror underneath it.
The view from my window. This is by far THE best view I've ever had. Usually I'm looking at a brick wall, so this is really really nice. Anybody who comes in the room comments on the view, so you know it's special :) They also comment on how cold I have the room. I love a nice cool room. It's set at about 67 right now...pretty much perfect. Really nice when the rest of the hospital is about 72 or so. The CF dietician came in today and said she'd come hang out in my nice cool room and check out the view when she gets stressed. Sounded good to me :)
That's all for now!
