"hi sharon, thanks for the update. I was taking that diovan with the diuretic too, it was costing me $94 a month, so I asked the pharmacist about a generic. there is a way you can do it, it involved taking two pills, but it adds up to the same…"

"Unfortunatly this will probably happen again. Getting the 2 big needles into the fistula, which is deep, is apparently not easy for many nurses. The vessel walls are not hardened and scarred yet, so they can infiltrate easily. Its easy to stick the…"
"And the bruising that is going to keep coming up, is only going to get worse. Its going to take a month for all that blood in there to break down and dissolve. The fistula is still new, so people seem to have these infiltration problems at first for…"

"Hi Lots, weekend going ok. We are watching a Ravens and Indiana Colts football game. Jon and I are from Baltimore and remember when the colts left Baltimore and people there are still angry. Ravens aren't a bad team, and I eventually became one…"
"Sharon, so nice you all had a nice Christmas. Hopefully Jon is feeling better, I saw yesterday's dialysis didn't go so well. the school sounds like they will be putting together an IEP for Alex, don't let him get anxious about the…"
"Hey catlover, Jon was feeling better, but now he feels he is getting a slight cold. He was back to work a couple days this week. They had difficulty giving him dialysis with the machine clogging up big time with blood clots yesterday so it took a…"
"Sharon- I am so glad that you and the family had a wonderful Christmas. I hope Jon is feeling better. I guess his health is an on again and off again situation. It sounds like the school has a handle on Alex's problems. Hope they can resolve…"

hi sharon, thanks for the update. I was taking that diovan with the diuretic too, it was costing me $94 a month, so I asked the pharmacist about a generic. there is a way you can do it, it involved taking two pills, but it adds up to the same med.even w/ the generic, still rather expensive, but the doc says I have to. let me know if you'd like the info on the generic combo. I do think it makes my feet and ankles swell, do you have this side effect? give jon my best, we miss him.
Hi Sharon- Sorry I haven't checked in for a while. I have had some medical problems of my own. But, enough about me. I am glad that Jon is home again. I know he is too. Nothing like men in the hospital, a nightmare to say the least. I hope he stays away from there for a long while. How is Alex doing ? Has he adjusted to school? Women take the pressure of the whole family when things are amiss. Stay well and give my best to Jon. Cat

Hello Sharon. How is Jon? I am worried about him. Sorry he had to cancel D. If he does not get any better make sure he sees the doctor. I have a sinus attack affecting my right eye. It is driving me crazy. Did Alex ever meet with his friend? I hope your next appointment at school you get some answers. Tell Jon he is in my prayers as well as you and Alex. A BIG HUG. Reed
Hi Sharon. I have been up since 3AM. I wrote to Jon. It is not due to Russ's coughng. I just could not sleep. It is nice and quiet at that hour I got a lot done. BG 108. I hope Jon had a chance to snooze at D. How is Alex? You making any headway with the school? All this is new to him and to you folks. He will turn it around. I just hope the kids do not tease him. TOPS tomorrow. I have a speaker coming. Take good care and say hello to Alex for me. HUGS,Reed
Hello Sharon. Feeling a little more like a normal person. We both had a good night. The pharmacist told Russ to take MUCINEX tablets rather than the liquid and it really worked. Tom is here so Reed's Diner open for the weekend. Can you believe it is 80 degrees here in January? Bg 102. How is my buddy Alex doing? Is school any better? I hope the kids are more friendly. I have not gone out as the flu is raging, What I had was bad enough, What have you been up to? Is the weather warm there? I heard from Jon this morning. We both are early birds. Take good care of yourself. My best to lex and have a good weekend. HUGS,Reed
