HI Joanne- Nice pics from the Crayola factory. Jim and I took Jack ( our G-son) there when he was here with his mom. It is a fun place for little kids. Hope your feeling better. We have crocuses open on our lawn. Spring is here !!!! Cat

Hello,Joanne. Glad you enjoyed the weekend. Nice to have company but nice to see them go. It is hard on me as Tm and Russ love food but i have to think TOPS on Wed. New England seafood at Bette's A1A Cafe will be worth a pound. I hope you do ok at work and d not get overtired. Tom just left. We got our haircut and had lunch at the Village Inn. My BG was 106 not bad at all. Take good care of yourself and try to rest. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Joanne. How are things? I hope you are feeling better. Do you work today? I could not sleeo last night nothing on my mind finally got up at 5. A nice quiet time to do the birthdays and Welcomes. They have not called Russ about going for the cat scan. I guess the two doctors are still fighting it out. Tom comes tonight. He got notice he is to do the readings at the 9AM Mass at the Cathedral March 18th..he is nervous. BG 106. Hope yours continue to be good. Enjoy your company. I know they will cheer you up. I am doing fine. Tke good care, I care. HUGS,Reed

Hello Joanne. Dr,Oz was tired so he stayed in bed.They cancelled Russ's Cat Scan. Insurance said NO. I imagine having 4 in a month raised a red flag. The urologist has to call the insurance company doctor to tell why it is urgent. Russ does not have MEDICARE. Teachers in MA do not work under social security. I hope this finds you feeling better. I know you are having company and that will lift your spirits. My BG 98 happy with that. I hope your day goes well and I know you will enjoy the weekend. Do not forget to change the date on your watches. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

HI Joanne- Hope you enjoyed your weekend with Pete. How long does it take for him to drive from Pgh ? Looks like another beautiful day for us, going up to 60 again. Yesterday was my 13th year anniversary with D. I am just grateful that I don't have any complications. The time seemed to fly by, but the days went slowly. I celebrated by eating a piece of delicious dark choc. that Jim bought me for Valentines Day. Yummy !! Have a good week !!Cat

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.
