Thanksgiving day is here and I wanted to express what I’m thankful for. Being a diabetic has many challenges, especially the various health issues. In my case that involves multiple ones
I’ve discussed many times on my blogs about my foot issues. I’ve lost toes, had to go through rehab to walk properly again. I’m grateful for all the doctors and nurses who helped me get well. I’m grateful I can walk and still have both legs and feet. I’m very fortunate.
The next big health issue has been my eyes. Diabetes has blurred my vision and required me to get multiple laser treatments and eye injections to continue to see properly. I’m grateful for my doctor for keeping my vision stable and being able to see.
My newest health concern may be a kidney problem. I’m being checked out later in December because blood levels are low and my lab work shows possible damage. So I’m grateful to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I’m grateful for all my friends who continue to support me in this fight against diabetes.
To sum this blog up I can see, walk and am able to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I’m grateful for what I have. I hope all my fellow diabetics have a happy, healthy and family and friends filled Thanksgiving!
