MakeDiabetesVisible, day 9

Not much of an update today. I spent most of the day grumbling about a sore wrist and high BGs from the steroid.

I didn't particularly feel like giving my meter the satisfaction of taking pictures of it when it gave me such unpleasant #s, so here's a pic of the offending wrist instead:

De Quervain's pain AND cortisone injection pain!

MakeDiabetesVisible, day 8

Today was an exciting day for me! I visited the hand surgeon, who confirmed that the trigger thumb on my right hand has responded very well to the steroid injection I had in June. So well, in fact, that she's no longer recommending surgery :-D.

I also was lucky enough to talk to her about my left wrist. My GP dx'd my wrist with De Quervain's syndrome in September, and recommended ice and rest. No improvement there, so today's photo is the prep for the steroid injection I had in my left wrist:
