Hi Reed - The forsythia are in full bloom. We are getting a bit more rain - much needed.
Did Russ get the problem with his hearing aides fixed?
I still have not finished my taxes, but I'm telling myself I must work on them for a full hour tomorrow as soon as I get up.
The mail order pharmacy goofed up my sleeping meds so now I have to go to the clinic and get a 3 day supply. I have a lot of pills to keep track of but must remember they are needed to keep me well.

Have a good time at TOPS tomorrow.

Hi Reed glad Russ is doing ok but what a shame he can't hear at the moment! I hope they can fix it for him. You sound like you are run ragged and in need of a good rest and I hope that soon you will be able to take it easy. I am not too bad thanks. The pain comes and goes so can't caomplain too much lol. Bg's also up and down but the steroids will do this to me! The joys!!! Take care Reed. Tricia x

HI Reed- You are still busy with Russ it seems. Make sure you don't forget yourself. Cloudy here but warm. Will be 80 on Friday. Today it is officially Spring. I am also seeing a PT for a balance problem I have. I hope it helps. BG this AM was 51. Take care. Cat

Hi Reed - Lady Lots must be looking very glamorous with her hair colored. And she is right about maybe Russ needs new batteries in his aides. One thing after the other. Are the PTs easy going or are they drill sergeants? The ones I had during my recovery were sort of mean.
Well we finally got a big gush of intense rain for about 30 minutes. I was just about to leave the Y and as I opened the door all this rain blew in and soaked me. Then the sirens went off so I went back in. They had the tv on at the reception desk and the sirens were just a high wind warning. I waited a bit and visited with some people.
On the machines, you enter your weight and then it tells you how many calorie you burn. My total for the day was 400, which is very good for me, but then I stopped at the store and those freaky big strawberries were on sale again so I got some and a tub of Cool Whip and now have probably eaten 400 calorie worth so negated my exercise. Sheesh! You can tell that story at TOPS and use it as an example of what NOT to do.
I got my new pedometer and it ha 4 buttons on it and I can't figure out how to even set the time. Guess I'll be up late cuz I wanna use it tomorrow...

I will mention Russ again in my prayers to the Blessed Mother in my morning prayers.Good BG. My eyes are fine as I had my eye check today.

My BG on wakeup was 91 so not too bad.

Thanks Reed for the kind greeting!! Hope all is well.

Well at least Russ will go to the dr. My g-mother who turned 87 (i think it was in Feb if not it's 86) won't even talk to u about going to the dr. She drives me sooooo crazy!!!!!

Yep I go this week for the preop stuff. Joy joy... Can u tell I'm starting to back out????? LOL! The dr shouldn't have gave me so much time. I hate anticipating it drives me up a wall. When I had my right shoulder done (about 5 or 6 years ago) I shocked both my husband & the dr b/c I wouldn't wait for 6 weeks to do it. I ask the dr how fast he could do it and this was on a Friday he told me on Tuesday so I told him to set it up on Tuesday I wanted to get it over with.not good on waiting b/c I know me I'll start backing out if I have to wait too long. LOL!

Hi Reed - so glad you had a nice dinner and that Russ is feeling better and that Tom did well with the reading. All of those things add up to a good day!
Still warm here - my neighbor across the street was putting in his window unit. He may have quite an electrical bill.
I did well at the Y today but then came home and my pedometer fell into the toilet. I fished it out with a pair of chopsticks but it appears to be wrecked by the water.
Remember how I said starting March 1 I was going to work 1/2 hour per day on my taxes? Well, silly me, I seem to have forgotten all about it so tomorrow morning I really have to get moving. I hope I'm not missing any documents.......

Hi Reed. Lots of drunk people on the streets this evening. Some people had green hair. One boy had a necklace with hot glasses hanging off it. Too much commotion for me. The buses were packed, which meant people weren't driving. Good thing.
It is 9 pm and still 75 degrees out. We are officially in a drought and will be in big trouble if we don't get significant rain in the next few weeks.
Hope you had a nice dinner. Enjoy your Sunday.

I am praying for all in the Gator House MR Gator. Hang in there. Thanks again for the card too.. Busy next week with my eye exam on Monday,

Thank you Reed for the St Patty's day Card. My week was rough to say the least.
Saw the Dr and team Wed nite at a support mtg & he says if it doesn't pass they will do some tests. Today actually not too bad. Was in the low 70's here and did some yard work and trimmed a tree. Hope you, Russ & Tom enjoy a wonderful weekend.
Take care <3 <3 Joanne

glad to hear continued good news Reed. Glad you two are able to go out to dinner. we got a little spring fever here too. ed wants to get the deck garden started early this year. bg 144 I guess that's ok for me.

Hi Reed- Glad Russ is feeling a little better. If he wants to eat out, he must be better. I said a special prayer at my services last night for my friends in St. Augustine ( that would be you and Russ). It is getting very spring-like here. Flowers are blooming in all colors. Lawn mowers are whirring in the mornings. I hope we don't suffer with bugs b/c of our warm winter. After the mess with my test strips my BG is back being low. It was 52 this AM. Take care of yourself. Cat

Ok Now I'm up & around. LOL! I'm gonna hit my computer if it keeps acting up. ERRRRRRRRRR!!!! We're paying for that trip is all I can say right now. Poor Kenneth he came in after that trip (was hurting from it) and decided he was superman and went and got the lawn mower out. It's a riding mower. Got it stuck in the mud (apperantly we got some good rain whlie we were gone) tryed to pull it out with our it stuck in the mud too. Anyway wound up calling our daughter (who was here in Jackson shopping at Walmart) to come and pull his car & lawn mower out of the mud pit!!! That happened yesterday so today he's really hurting in his back.

I forget what day is Russ's b-day????? Glad he's getting (what sounds like) much better. I know those low bp can cause u to really be soooo weak and drug out. My dr put me on some high bp meds to protect my kidney (only born with 1 soooo) anyway I wound up going to the ER with a reading like Russ's was and they told me to throw away the meds so I did. So far so good now.
