    went to the doctor for my ct scan, it was so long. when I got there they drew blood, then I had to drink a big mug on nasty lemonaide looking stuff and wait an hour and a half. then went and had iv put in my arm and injected with a clear dye. they said I should have my results back tomorrow but it's on how fast my doctor gets back with me. I was told not to take my metformin till friday just checked my blood sugar over two hundred. not scared though I was told it was normal b/c I had taken predisone and it causes high blood sugar. but it did cause me to do a double take cause I never seen it that high. hoping for the best.

    Please don't hesitate to call your doctor to discuss your sugars and your metformin.

    Waiting on results is no fun Please come back and let us know how it's going!
