I saw the pic of your cherubs on fb....they are beautiful! Have a great day yourself!!

Hello Joanne. Sounds like you were having fun with Samantha. I have been trying hard to keep my mind off my troubles. Mt BG 106. I was stuck in the house today as the HOA decided this was a good day to resurface the roads in Seagate. Lucky for me I had no appointments. Very hot and humid and they say the rest of the week could be in the triple digits. I will be so happy when Friday gets here and I know what is what. Thanks for your prayers. My best to Joe. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning, Joanne. How are things with you? I hope you are feeling better. Cat scan Bone scan 22 x-rays..they should know my body in and out. I get the course of action August 16. I hope and pray the cancer has not spread to my bones. Not sleeping well at all. Too much stuff in my head. How is Joe doing? Any leads? Is the bathroom done? Big grocery list today. Take good care of yourself. My best to Joe. HUGS,Reed
Hello Joanne. I loved your photos. Your Mom looks like a lovely lady. I am doing ok but this waiting is driving me crazy. I have TOPS tomorrow so that will kill half the day. Everyone giving advice. I have it right here. Russ had PC went to 47 days of radiation and he is fine. His PSA is zero. I think my big concern is what treatment is he going to suggest. So I do not miss hear, Tom is going with me. Bg 104. Really do ok except for this old head that is stuffed with PC facts. You have a great family. Try not to overdo and get too tired. Thanks for your good thoughts and prayers. HUGS,Reed
Hi Joanne. They did not kill me. Seems strange it is taking 10 days to get the results. They tried 4 times to get that long needle in my hand to ge6 it to the intravenous thing. They have me on CIPRO killing my stomach. Tom coming tonight and he jusy went home yesterday. He reads and serves Sunday. I na m sorry you are not feeling well. I hope you get better soon. How is the bathroom coming along? Give my best to Joe and you take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed
Gosh Joanne, I am so sorry that you have been so sick. The weather this year is very bad for breathing issues. Here it is super hot and rains every day. A lot of people are sick with allergies, colds and sinus problems. I had your issue last year and had to take a whole bunch of antibiotics and steroid inhalers and finally the pills it WAS awful. I hope you get totally back to normal. I am glad to hear you are feeling better. You went on vacation and the beach? I hope the weather there was good. Just getting away makes one feel better. You take care. Thanks for coming to see me!
Hello Joanne. Another hot day. I think the doctor put the cart before the horse of he had some other reason to say I had prostate cancer before I have the biosopy...that is Tuesday. Evert one says there are so many options today and they are all doing well so I am stopping my worrying. Tropical storm Chantal has fallen apart so we will only get some rain. How are yu feeling? Better I hope. Has Joe had any luck. You both are in my prayers. Tom comes tonight. He will stay until Wed as he wants to take me Tuesday. He is a good one to get answes. Any plans for the weekend? Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hi Joanne- Thanks for all of your good wishes, prayers and cards. I am home, I hope for good. It will be a long recovery but I will do my best to take it a day at a time. Hospitals are a bad place for diabetics b/c the staff really do not understand how to regulate insulin doses. I had many arguments with them about my care. I hope you are feeling better from your most recent illness. Congrats on your new grandson. I saw the pic on your page. Take care. Cat-Susan
Hi Joanne, I think your new avatar is so sweet. Thank you for the sweet pictures. I hope you are feeling better. You sound so busy. How is your back ache? I had that and found out I have scoliosis. You can get it when young but again in middle age. It hurts right in the shoulder blades. I hope yours is just sore muscles. Does heat help. I hope you had a nice holiday. Lots.
Dear Joanne. So sorry you are not feeling well. It seems you got everything connected with a cold. Tom is in Chicago to a conferebce so I did not go to MASS yesterday as I could not do the steps and the long aisle. SundAy I did a little bit of shopping. I began to tremble was it because I knew I was alone? Outside a lady helped me put things in the trunk of the car. Did I look that pitiful? Today is trash day. Russ had to take the bags down the hill to the street. He was exhausted. Tom always does he before he leaves Sunday, I guess old age has really caught up with us. Any news on Joe? Everyone will claim age but not say so. I go to the Urologist today UGH. Going to get new wills witnessed and notarized then to the urologist. Where the skin doctor removed things 2 syill bleeding. Please get better. My best to Joe. HUGS,Reed
Hello Joanne. The bleeding has stopped but the 5 places he cut are sore. The one on left ear is awkward. I hope they all come back benign. Russ goes to py today. He surprised me..he like it goes 2x a week. He likes the heat and electric jolts to his back. I pray Joe has good luck Friday. BG 106. Tom is in Chicago for a conference he will seem funny not having him around for the weekend. I will shop. I am ok once I get the shopping cart. Glad your work is going well. Please feel better. My best to Joe. HUGS,Reed
Dear Joanne. Thanks for that nice message. I hate to admit it BUT so far that Australian Dream cream seems to work. No knee pain. I slept right through the night. Today, I go to the dermatologist. I have these bumps on my arms. I bet he tells me OLD AGE. Tom left this morning. We will not see him until July 3rd as later he leaves for a conference in Chicago. I looked at weather forecast 90's all week. How is Joe? Anything lined up? Tatum looks so cute. God Bless her. I love my floors. Hope you are doing well. My BG 108. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hello Joanne. Poor Cat is not at home she had to go back but wants to get out of there soon. Her husband writes me every night.

I am doing ok. BG 106. Knees a killer but I put up with it. Had wood floors put in 3 rooms den and 3 closets now the house is all wood floors. I love it. How is your new job coming along?
