My stepmother passed away this afternoon. I will miss her so much. I called her my "Other Mother". She loved that. She was so supportive of my weight loss and felt so bad for me when diagnosed with diabetes. She really encouraged me and supported my efforts to get as healthy as possible. She told me many times how proud she was of me.
We will be leaving early in the AM for Tennessee for the funeral and to spend time with my dad. I knew for some time that this was coming but even so it is still a shock. I'm having trouble organizing myself to get ready for this trip.
I wondered how this would affect my glucose but so far I'm doing OK. Not running as high as I usually do when so stressed. We'll see how it goes when we are on the road. I don't usually do very well when traveling. This time, I prepared ahead. I have food and drink prepared for myself that I am taking in a cooler. They can have all the restaurant food they want, I'm sticking to what is safe for me. I hope I will be able to sleep tonight.
