Queen Elizabeth is in the Bonus Round

You know, that's the new paradigm for life. You go and you go, do as much as you can. And then, at the end, nice and quick.

That was my doctor today.

Tests were good. A1c down to 6.3. That's good! You were up to 9. Cholesterol normal.

But the kidneys.

This combo you're on, he said, one of the three meds. I call it a poisonette. To the kidneys. Like chemo. In fact, it's just like chemo. The next wave of therapies are going to emphasize empowering the immune system.

Nothing to worry about just yet. Are you hydrating?

I tell him how I make my own sugarfree lemonade with truvia.

Come back in a month and let's look again.

He's talking about changing combos. I hate changing combos. He can tell.

It's nothing to worry about.

You go and you go in life, do as  much as you can. And then, at the end, take a bow wearing a fabulous hat.

Great A1c level. Mine was 6.1 but glucose tolerance test came back o.k.

You're doing something right. Keep it up.

You've got twice as many kidneys as I do.

I still want to be Ruth Gordon when I grow up...
