Thank you Judith! It DOES feel less thing to worry about, but there is more than diabetes on my plate! It feels like the older I get...the more variety there is on my plate! I'd like to scrape my plate into the garbage ;)

Brava Linda!!!. I've been in this club for awhile, but now am developing problems that may take me out of it---a poster child for "don't get complacent when you are doing everything 'right!'".....I'm so very happy for you. Feels good, doesn't it?!.....Love.....
