    I ususally go through all these emotions and thoughts everytime I wait for results

    So I'm sitting in the dr's office
    having just been ushered in
    I'm looking round the room
    ..magazines are pretty slim

    Women's Day, People, Glamour...PLLeeeaasse
    Wheres Bass world, Business World....
    What's a guy supposed to read?

    So I'm looking at the charts
    on the cold and stoic walls
    seeing all the stuff I can contract
    Unless my a1c's fall

    Neuropathy, heart disease
    Renal failute too
    Retinopathy, DKA,
    just to name a few

    Hmm...I think that in the last few months
    I've been doing pretty well
    I know I could do better
    only time will tell....

    "Wow, it's really cold in here"
    did I say that aloud?
    The nurses probably think I'm whacked
    ...here talking to myself

    C'mon baby.... let em be right
    let the numbers be in line
    I know the math really matters
    If I'm to get through life just fine

    New sounds from the hallway
    the chart slides from the door
    the doorknob twists quickly
    the moment I've waited for

    Why hello Mr Hawkinson
    how are you today?
    Why I'm fine....thank you doc
    ...WHAT DO THE NUMBERS SAY?

    "Lets take a look---"
    ....hmmmm lets see how you've been doing
    you know your fingersticks are pictures
    ...your A1c's the movie

    Hey hey good news ..A1c's look good
    even though youve gained 4 pounds
    I think you're gettin the hang of this
    after 44 years ---it sounds...

    OK I promise to do better
    and only eat what I should
    I'll exercise and lose some weight
    only lettuce and carrots for food

    Yeah right, doc says,
    You know .....I've been seeing you for years
    you have the right attitude
    and you've been blessed with health it's clear

    ...but this disease can be cummulative
    damage adds up over time
    which is why I always encourage you
    to strictly walk the line

    I know, I know ....
    I should always do my best
    but life just seems to happen
    sometimes you need a rest

    ...well take a break when you need to
    based on how you feel
    but jump back in and get it right
    NO SLEEPING AT THE WHEEL!

    Ok doc I'll take your advice
    Your direction I will heed
    Next visit my numbers will be better
    I'll be your "Noble Steed"

    Okay Mr. H well see ya later
    lets see you in 4 months
    by then I expect you'll have lost the weight
    of course...that's just a hunch

    So out I go ... into the world
    recalling what she said
    4 lbs isnt much and easily lost
    ....but hey......................Isn't it Lunchtime yet
