Another New Normal

Thursday, December 02, 2010
It seems like we now have a NEW new normal to learn to deal with and accept. I think the "normal" for us is that nothing is ever normal.  Today was pre-op and surgery is tomorrow morning. It is out patient, so hopefully we'll be home sooner than later.

DH can't eat or drink anything after midnight tonight. He's flipping out because he's bad about having his blood sugar drop when he hasn't eaten for awhile. There's a little country grocery store close to our house that makes great sandwiches. We decided we would stop there and pick up lunch. While I was waiting for my turn, I was talking with a cousin who happens to live around the corner from us.  All of a sudden this overwhelming warmth came up from my toes and I felt like I was going to black out at any moment. I stopped mid sentence and said, "I've got to sit down. I don't feel so well."  I made it out to my car and just sat there. The cold air made me feel a lot better. My cousin followed me out and offered to drive me home, but since I lived so close and was already feeling better, I drove myself home. The only thing I can figure is MY blood sugar dropped. I hadn't eaten much of anything in the last couple days, I had exercised really hard last night and I had taken migraine medication earlier this morning. (Yes, I had my first migraine in probably a year this morning, but that's another post.)

Anyway, I'm fine now. Needless to say it scared me to death. The poor lady at the grocery store came running out offering something to drink, eat. It scared DH too. He had stayed home. Thankfully, I'm not sick. There's been a nasty virus going around and I do know someone who actually fainted from it. We would have had to cancel DH's surgery if I had because he can't get sick.

In other news (good news), we received our letter from the adoption agency today about our adoption classes. They start mid-January and run for three Saturdays. There's also a book list, more or less our homework list. We have lots of reading to do between now and then.
