Cavalier Katie

Good morning my friends! Man oh man I miss blogging. I swear my brain thinks in blog post form now. It's been a wild ride the last month but I finally feel like things are settling down a bit. I am still on antibiotics for the ear and sinus infection. Those little people have super germs I tell ya. I have not been that sick in a long time.

Speaking of, I went to the doctor when I was sick and she ran some blood tests for blood sugar, cholesterol, etc. The results were not as good as before. I had reduced my insulin and was not taking my cholesterol pill and it showed. Dr. M said I was being cavalier about my health and basically scolded me. In my desire to get off the meds, I prematurely lowered the amount of medications and it backfired. The one good note about my health was my weight. I am actually at 243 which means I lost 4 lbs. in September. That means I have lost a total of 72 lbs!! That is at least a 2nd grader.  She said that this was the lowest weight on record since I have been seeing her which has been at least 6-7 years. She did not want to discount the weight loss but for my age my numbers need adjusting. She said I was too young to have those readings.Meanwhile, I am back on the Lipitor and adjusted my insulin. I still need to do one more blood test and also get a pap smear and mammogram. I am overdue for both.

Work has been taxing but very fun. One of the teachers even commented that I have a fan club. They are just so cute and fun. I am planning on getting some ECE units (Early Childhood Education) so I can teach preschool. I prefer the 4 year olds then the 3 year olds. I am going to take the classes online.

I'll leave you with a picture of Bogey. He was playing fetch with me and then kitty flopped on the floor.

Until next time...



  1. Nice to hear from you. Please do follow your doctor's direction and take the meds you need to take for now - I'm sure she would be happy to help wean you off them as that becomes possible.

    That photo of Bogey is too cute!

  2. Please take care of yourself. Hugs.

  3. Bogey is so cute!

    I find that sometimes, taking care of myself comes last and I know that has to change.

  4. Bogey slays me - he is just the cutest cat!

    Alright missy - you need to take care of yourself. You are the only Katie J we have, and we want you around for a long time! So take your meds correctly, please.

    Oh, and considering all of the cute little germ factories you're working around, have you gotten a flu shot yet?

  5. Now you can get the Vera Bradley purse!

  6. Glad to hear you are doing better. Cute picture of the kitty! Great job on losing more weight!!

  7. Sorry to heat that you are sick but mostly about the results from your tests. As said above you are the only one who can take care of you. Follow doc rules, and things will pan out for ya. Congrats reaching your next ten of weight loss. Trying hard to catch up to ya.....hehe

  8. Glad to hear you are doing better Katie. AWWWW...Bogey! AWWWWW! Have a good weekend.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
