So my hubby and I decide to take afew days away right??? The 1st night my pump becomes detached from me. I wake up at 3 in the morning with a 511 bs. So I think I got it together and the next night I fall to a 21 and my hubby was gone so it was all up to me to do this right??? My vision was so blured and well I was sweating beyond beleive and life just wasn't going my way ok???? I slowly make it over to the frige in our room and get the gluagon kit (now that was an adventure in itself)…


Thank You For All the B-day Greetings!!!!!

Tell Amber I said that I am sorry for what she had to go through.

Hi Doris, I am so sorry that this happened to your family. I am glad that your grandchild is getting past this and your daughter too. How are you doing? How is your health? Are you enjoying your summer or are you too hot? It has been super hot here and I do not do well in the heat. Luckily, we had a bunch of storms here and it cooled off considerably. I will be happy when the leaves turn and fall gets here.
I have been having all kinds of problems with my health. I think a lot of people here are struggling with medical conditions other than diabetes. I pray for them every day. I am glad that Reed is getting better from his broken hip. I see that he has been writing to you and sometimes he feels better and has better days. I hope you and Ken are doing well with your health issues? Ellen

Doris, I am so sorry for the loss due to suicide. I am glad that your daughter is okay. How are the kids doing with this? I don't need a dog. I have one that is enough!

Hi Doris, How are you? I see that you have a new puppy on your Avatar. It is so little and cute. How are you? How is your husband and all of the kids. I hope you are having a good summer. It has been super hot here and I can't wait for fall as usual. Take care. Ellen
