Three Doctors in One Morning

I originally only had one doctor appointment this morning, but ended up seeing three! I had an appointment early with my diabetes doctor. My sugar levels are doing fantastic, and it looks like I'm going to be able to go without insulin at least for the immediate future. I am almost at the end of my first trimester, and to make it that far without insulin is an accomplishment for me. While there, they noticed my blood pressure was up, and sent me down two floors to my OB office. My OB did a very quick ultrasound scan (I didn't even get to see anything!) and said the baby looked good, but put me on blood pressure medication. I've been on this same medication before, and it worked very well. All in all everything is going well. I had an appointment scheduled with my thyroid doctor next Friday, but they called to say that I needed to reschedule so they fit me in this morning. He said that my thyroid looked great, and did some quick blood work. So, I am now home, and trying to get our house germ free! We're changing sheets, spraying down everything and anything with Lysol, and throwing everyone's toothbrushes away. The kids are all doing much better. Jeremy is still pretty sick, but he's trying to get as much rest as possible. Off to Lysol the door handles! Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty how has for now blessed us with one more.
