I went to the doctor yesterday and he was pleased with my progress. Redness and swelling was down. I have a followup appointment in a couple of weeks when he will discuss other things, namely my bad cholesterol and blood glucose.
Suffice it to say that this cellulitis has been a wake up call of sorts for me. My daughters have also taken notice of this, as they realize that diabetes runs on both sides of the family.
Hopefully with the use of my blood glucose meter and scale, I can motivate myself enough to stay the course this time.
