Thanks so much for your wishes. I plan on having a great day and I'm going to go out to a seafood restaurant tonight. We hardly ever eat out.

Hi Marie! Yes, I heard the news! Lots is changing here... I regret that I did not remain more active on TuD. I stay active in the OhBaby group. So I try to check in there once a week.

Lots has changed here too!! Our daughter was born on December 27. So we are now a family of four. :) We are all doing well and she is just a delight!

How are you??? Send an update when you have time!!!

Hey…just a quick update…I had a work weekend, so my time was limited. I have a draft of the email to be sent about the lobbying…I amm not quit done with the content before I start wordsmithing it withthe correct language…but I hope to have it ready soon.

With that being said , I am meeting with the MAG lobbyist (Medical Assoc of Ga) today for an inforaml discussion before I start meeting formally with groups that hopefully can get this in a committee to get it on the floor for the a vote.

I just wanteed to keep you in the loop.

Hello Marie, Been busy. Missed church. I finally got Russ to the ER they are keeping him..pneumonia plus other things. I am glad as I could not handle him. Tom is with him.
A lot on my mind. Hope all is well with you. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie, thank you for your warm welcome! It has been great and helpful to stay connected with people here since no one around me ever has T1D and knows much about it.

Hi Marie, Your dinner party sounds like it is going to be wonderful. I need your grape leaf recipe. I want to make some for my son. I wish I was invited to your house for a meal! I found this on FB and thought you would like it. How is your quilting and bread making coming along? Is it cold and snowy for you? Here it looks like it will be a nice day.
