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
