This number 99 is the jersey of Wayne Gretsky. He is called "The Great One." Today is a 99 day.

Before work we had an appointment to meet our likely pediatrician. He is VERY positive about LynnMarie's current and future health.

I went to work. It was pretty much dead. Photo was a wasteland, but we had some vendor deliveries and stock issues to address.

After work I went straight to the gym. I spent 35 minutes on the eliptical (down from my regular 55) and burned just over 400 calories. I then moved to a number of the weight machines, all the time listening to music on my mp3 player. I was particularly motivate and moved when I heard songs by Burlap to Cashmere, DC Talk and tobymac. The last thing I heard was tobymac singing "Whatever I gotta be, I be for you."

That lyric struck me in two ways, as I want that to be my motivation regarding my God and my family.

As for 99. Let me say aome more. This morning I took my oral meds and after the meeting with the doctor I had a chicken breakfast burrito from Chick-fil-a. At work I had some natural almonds through my shift and lunch was a baked chicken breast and some corn. I had taken no insulin since last night and when I got home I checked my blood sugar level to find it at a very awesome 99!
