Well, things are crazy all over Seattle. Many places are still without power and could be for several days. Luckily we're in a narrow strip that didn't have an outage.
So I've had a cold for the past couple days, and since my husband and J. both had it before that, I knew it was a bad one. I've been eating Dayquil and prescription cold medication, but it was still pretty bad. I didn't get sick for six months, pretty much the whole time I've been on insulin. I used to get sick all the time, so it was really nice not to for awhile.
I started running high yesterday - 30 points, but for me that's significant. Then today I couldn't hear out of my left ear, so I went to a clinic. They said I had some fluid in my ear but it wasn't clear yet if it was an infection. But since I'm a diabetic, they said I could have antibiotics anyway. I actually think it probably is an infection. It's the first time my blood sugar's run higher while being sick. On the way home from the clinic, I started feeling sicker and nauseated. Another first: positive ketones. Since it's never been positive before, I was really surprised by that. I'm not really worried about it. But I'll force myself to eat something and drink some fluids, I suppose.
