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
Good Morning.Joanne. Tom is here. I think he settles Russ down he can help more than I can as he drives, Can lift him if need be. I was right Barbara brought 2 big photo albums. I took them to Red Toad. I am still pleased with the place as the food is excellent. She had honey pecam chicken and said it was excellent. Her husband had coconut shrimp. My BG 112. We are still coughing. Get this. Trying to get a new PCP. I called one new to area from Boston. I called. The doctor does not take phone messages. He will not last long. How are you feeling? I hope you can rest before Tuesday. Take good care and enjoy the weekend. HUGS,Reed

Joanne thank you ever so much for the excellent and informative information you sent me. I appreciate it so much. Back from my injections #5 all done. See him in 6 weeks for a follow up. Thanks again. HUGS,Reed
Hi Joanne. Can you believe what I had was WHOOPING COUGH? I thought only kids giot that. Feeling better cough some at night. Russ;s doctor called yesterday and he has a blocked artery in his left leg. He wants him to see a cardio vascular surgeon. What do they do for that? Russ is stubborn. I will have to hound him to go. Are you feeling better each day? I hope so . You are in my daily prayers. I have company coming tomorrow Please God do not let her bring photo albums. I will take them out to lunch. I get my final iunjections in my knees this afternoon #5. They do help. Take good care of yourself and do not get overtired. HUGS,Reed
