Losing A Toe To Diabetes

Long story cut short.. mom's toe has turned gangrene due to diabetes... it has been on going, inflamed, swollen and then subside.. then inflamed again... and last night it became like this....
Admitted to hospital last night and specialist confirmed that it has turned bad... 
Need to operate the next day before it spreads...
By morning, it has turned even darker...
 The operation took half hour or so...
But we waited for more than 2 hours before she came out... 
She was on epidural instead of GA...
Maybe due to her blood pressure that rose to 188/93
Feeling kind of stress.... or fear....
Who does not....
After the operation....
Her blood pressure came down to 134/.82
Thank God she is fine now...
So from now on... 
We should watch what we eat....
Diabetics can cause this to happen.... 
I need to watch out my sweet tooth....

  4. Oh dear!!! Will have to control the diet. Watch out for all the hidden sugars in rice, noodles, everything... Moderation is the key, a little of everything - not too much.

  23. May your mother feel better soon. Yes, I agree that we should watch our sweet tooth. My late father also had one of his lower leg amputated. That's why I don't dare to eat lots of sweet things.

  24. That's so scary to know but glad that the operation went well. Yes, we all need to be careful with what we eat these days, esp as age catches up.

  25. good thing it was just there, there are some people i knew has worst condition, take care of her even more now, i wish her health to be better

  26. I am so sorry and sad to hear about her losing a toe. I hope she will recover and won't feel upset. My friend's grandma went through a more sad operation which went fatal. She was a diabetic and was in coma. Her whole left leg turned black and had to be amputated from the knee even in comatose condition!!! The next day after the operations, she passed away in her coma stage minus a leg. Scary! I must also watch out my extremely sweet tooth! LOL.

  27. I'm so sorry to hear that. When age catches up with us, all the "good friends" start paying visits too. Must really watch our diet......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
