Grandson meritoriously promoted to Lance Corporal already

He is really dedicated and working hard towards promotions up the ranks. I am very proud of him. We all are. He is currently in Okinawa, Japan.



Glucose number 97 this afternoon

I took my sugar level at 6 AM and it was 127 and then I took it again at noon before eating and it was 97. Then I had a Jimmy Dean Breakfast bowl and for some reason it didn’t taste right, but it only had about 19 grams of carbohydrates in it. My appetite still isn’t right despite stopping the Victoza.

Today is the graduation from Boot Camp for my grandson. Probably done already and they are scrambling to get back on the road. My ex-husband flew in. He lives in Jersey too. I missed going, but not missing spending 3 days with him.
