A Funny Thing Happened/Dexcom

You may recall that I was tearing up the floors in my house, doing 12,000 steps per day. I was gaining an entirely new level of control over my glucose and feeling generally like Super Woman. Type 2 was going down! Until …

As you’ve seen, I have absolutely no idea how to get the images at the top of my post to be the size that shows the top of the image rather than the bottom! LOL.
