Good Morning,Joanne. I woke up at 2 and said to myself OH NO NOT ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS I turned over and the next thing I knew it was g:45 PTL. My BG 118 unusual for me but I will take it. At 7 it was 73 and humid. How are things with you. You still doing fairly well? You tire easily? I hope things continue to improve for you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Tom must have fish..Lenten Fridays. I hate Florida fish. I will go to the Seafood shoppe to see what they have. He is giving up so much stuff for Lent I should save money. Yiou have a wonderful day. I care. HUGS.Reed

Joanne-That is terrific news about your newly expected grand (daughter). I take it from the graphic that it is a girl. Samantha will have a cousin close to her age. I hope the pregnancy continues to go well for your dil. I am OK taking one day at a time and enjoying our "spring" weather. Hope work isn't too difficult for you this week. Cat

Hi Joanne- Just wanted to see how your first day of work went. Hope you weren't too tired and you were able to eat without any distress. Rainy here today. Took one of our cats to the vet, she has been throwing up the past few days. Vet thinks it could be a plant she chews on. We put the plant outside. I hope that solves the problem. Cat

This week HAS to be better than last week was likeI told Kathy!!!!! If u want to read my whole tyrade go to Reed's page (and that wasn't the 1./2 of it. My husband heard it all was it yesterday or last night???????? I can't remember........Yes it does take time to get over surgery of ANY kind!!! I think he tought it wouldn't take him out like it did...I speak from pasted experance back when I was transplanted it took a whole week just to be able to roll over (and I was cut from the breast bone all the way down front not in the back) Infact they would put me in a hamic like thingy to change the bed close for a week Yep that even hurt to be picked up in that. I REALLY tried to understand but men and pain,,,,,,,It's ALWAYS worse for them right????????? HA!

HI HO HI HO it is off to work you go. I hope they do not load you down. I suppose they never heard of light duty. Just do the best you can. For lunch take something you know agrees with you. Still hounding Russ to see the cardio man. I am not making much progress. So glad your BG readings have been good. I was BG 96 this morning. BRRRR it was 27 here this morning. Glad I covered all my plants. You have a good restful day and I will be thinking about you tomorrow. HUGS,Reed
