Hey all! OK...so I've got some stuff lined up. I have my pain management appointment Wedsneday. I'm going to try to get that doc to notate that my weight is causing the pain...we'll see how that goes. Also, I'm supposed to go in for an Hemoglobin A1C test tomorrow as well. They're hoping my levels will be high enough to make a case for diabetes. Hoping to be diabetic? Weird. OK...so anyone know how to "fudge" this kind of test? Can I drink a milkshake or something before I go in to raise the levels? My sleep study is scheduled for July 3rd but there's a possibility that will get moved up. I told them if anyone cancels, let me know even if it's during the week. Feels good to be taking some proactive steps and my surgeon's office really does want to get me approved. They're working very hard at it. I have a strong family history of diabetes and heart disease so we're hoping that will help as well. That's all the news for now. Any advice on that hemoglobin test will be greatly appreciated. I mean...it's a blood test so not sure if there's much I can do about that. Again, thank you all for your amazing support and well wishes. I really I hope I'll be able to join you Bandland soon.
