Hello Tricia. Things go well. Things go bad that is all. I went to bed at 11 and even with a sleeping pill I did not sleep 5 minutes. I think I have classic insomnia. My BG good. Had a report on prostate cancer yesterday. The cancer is dead. YEAH. I am sorry you will have to stay on the steroids. Nick is walking that is good for him. All in all I cannot complain too much. When you see your MOM give her my best. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Hello Tricia. Both Russ and I had the flu. It was miserable. The worse part was the coughing. I am much better. Russ is coughing still and is up half the night. He has antibiotics but he still coughs. Weather here crazy. We even had freezes and lost most of my plants and bushes. How are things with you and Nick? Does he still have the GOUT. So busy with the weather here I have not been paying attention to your area. It is good to be back among the living. HUGS,Reed

Is Nick doing any better> Hope so. And you? I hope the year 2014 is a good year for all of us. HUGS,Reed
Hello Tricia. Loved the photos. A great family. Things are better here. The Hormone Shot is working. My PSA went from 24 to 5...big drop..the 2nd shot which I had might drop it to zero. How are things with you? And Nick is he still in pain? Poor guy. I am good except for knees and legs.TOPS Christmas party Wed at the Red Lobster. They have these out of this world biscuits. I must control myself. Foot doctor today at 1. The 12th I see the cancer doctor he said he did not get it all. There is always something. Broke the record here yesterday 83 degrees.

Hello Tricia. It was good to hear from you but sorry to hear you have had medical conditions. I have had P neuropathy for years..that is the trouble with my legs.It gets worse. I volunteered for a Neurologist for 9 years. He gave everyone that had it NEURONTIN 4 big dose pills a day. Avoid Lyrica. I always associated it with Diabetes byt we had people who had it that were not diabetic. Our good summer weather has gone. I had to put the heat on yesterday. I will find out 11/21 if the Hormone Shot is dong the job on my prostate cancer. I hope so as Ido not want to go through raduation. Take good care. Get better. Give Nick my best and he can be helped. HUGS, Reed
