Yikes, I get emotionally liable when I am in a lot of pain (crazy). 

Now my gallbladder needs removing, but I spent 14 days in the hospital with no exercise. My BG was continually over 400. I was so out of it. I have severe arthritis and being in bed or sitting all the time, well, I definitely need physical therapy. Back home yesterday and it feels great. I plan to fight on. Missed all of you. I am glad I am back to the real world again! 

Missed you all. Thanks for all the notes and get well wishes on my page. I missed TuD so much. I am glad I am back!!!

I thought about this guy, Amadeus, and how I was going to walk him again, fast, in the woods thing spring. .Visualizing me running near the stream with him keeps me going. I am going to get totally better because this guy needs a healthy mom.

ZenCat looks bigger. I petted her in my mind. She is even better in 3D.

Marie, Reed has Chico waiting for him. He will get better. I am sure he is tired of all the sickness. Maybe letting someone take care of him will lower his stress. At least he talked to someone here on the phone and didn't hang up. What a way to spend Easter hey?

A thanks to Chris. without whom I would not be alive. He fell in the stream and broken his finger. He had the dog. Stress.

Of course I needed my Gaga fix.
