I start the day with a little regimen:
- deep breathing with my incentive spirometer to help clear my lungs of fluids from the surgery; they recommend ten breaths followed by a single breath that I hold and then try to cough
Then, it’s blood glucose monitoring; this morning it was showing signs of reducing since yesterday from 300 to 268 this morning.
We made a brief journey so I could remain the car while Marvin attended to errands. It was nice to be out but still taking it easy. My blood glucose readings remain high but are coming down with the lowest today at 208. Yesterday I ate salmon, today a quiche on a bed of greens. It all agreed with my rehabilitation. I must say I exercised a great deal of restraint in resisting a favorite dessert that we both enjoy. Marvin was the sole participant in this little scavenging exercise.
