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.

    ReplyDelete
  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

    ReplyDelete
  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......

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
