Day 1 of Plumbing Repair

It's been estimated at just under $19,000 and 5 days.

They showed up on time.  They have huge piles of dirt in front of the house and in the back of the house and they just keep getting bigger.  The dog run is gone.  I locked the dog door a bit ago.  I've got a x-pen up.

I have been doing business with this company for a few years.  I'm always afraid a company will go bad, like AAA-Auger did, but everyone keeps telling me they are good.  

Basically they are putting two tunnels under the house, and rerouting the waste system and building a new one.  Plumbing hasn't been working right for two months.

I was going to take two dogs with me to dog agility but they had me leave the front door unlocked, the back door unlocked and the garage door open.  That freaked me out, as there were two things in the house I can't replace.  Macy and Dulce.

I took them with me.

The stress wasn't good for me.  I ate a quarter of my lunch and now my blood sugar is dropping.  I am eating gummy bears now.

Celebrex Weirdness

Friday I had a bunch of injections in my knee.  Dextrose, I believe.

It has not affected my blood sugar and my knee is not bothered me.  They asked me to not take my Celebrex as it would affect healing.

Guess what?  I don't feel any different pain wise without the Celebrex 

Weirder is that I asked my primary care physician two years ago if I should get off of it and he said no.


I can go back on it if I need it, but it is looking like I don't.

Dexcom issue solved -- sort of

I have been having trouble with the Dexcom G6 staying on me for the full ten days. 

A lot of us have been having this issue, according to Dr Google ;)

I have figured out the overlay tape doesn't last the full 10 days either.  So I have been putting the sensor on, then just about when the tape starts coming up, add overlay tape.

I have even had to trim the overlay and put a second layer on it, but that usually does the trick.  I think we can get overlay tape free from Dexcom, as they did send me one packet, but I have bee using a tape on bought on Amazon and leaving the Dexcom for emergencies.  It's in my bag in case I have an issue when I'm out and about.
