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.

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.

Hi Reed. Hope you are taking things one day at a time. What else can you do?
I forgot to take my long-acting insulin last night before bed and woke up with bg of 450. Felt just awful in a million different ways. And it took all day and no eating to bring it down. Now I feel hungover from the whole episode. I just can't tolerate blood sugar swings like I could when I was a youngster of 30.
75 degrees here today, the hottest since 1910. All of my summer clothes are in storage in the basement so I had to buy a t-shirt at TarJay. At least they had lots of colors to choose from, being so early in the season.
Hope your weekend goes smooth and that Russ perks up in time for his birthday. And that you can put your nurse's uniform away...

Hi....thanks for the nice welcome! I look forward to being here! :)

Hi Reed glad things have improved for Russ with his blood pressure and mobility. My Dad had blocked arteries in his legs and they put stents in which worked instantly so hopefully it will work fine for Russ too. How are you feeling? I hope you are coping ok and getting some rest time also. Good that Tom will be back with you too. I did well today as only 2 lows. I know it's the steroids causing all the upset for me but really no way out of that for a long time yet but it will all sort!! Take good care Reed, thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers. Tricia xx

thank you so much for the birthday wish :)

Thanks for the card Mr Gator. With all you have going on in the gator house you didn't have to do that. But it was nice.


At 12:58pm on March 16, 2012, Marie B said…

that's a much better bp number. I am hoping for his continued improvement. A couple of friends of mine asked if I wanted to go to a quilt shop in PA withthem today. I had been given a big gift card to this place by the guild last year as my parting gift so naturally I said yes. I got some nice fabrics and still have over $200 left to spend there. we also stopped at the German butcher on the way. I kid you not, we were going to have fried tofu tonight and now we're having weisswurst and saurkraut. haha. I don't really know how much many more weeks of unemployment ed has. the really really bad part is the health insurance. once the COBRA runs out it will a nightmare. bg 150, thinking of taking a little walk.

I am so glad Russ is a little better. I said the Chaplet for him this morning. Best of health to all in the Gator house. I am going to Stations of the Cross now.

Hello Reed, glad to hear Russ is doing better on his BP. Your BS's are great. I have been having problems with mine....just adjusted my Levemir amount, so I am waiting it out for a few days. Yes, my eye is all the way cleared!!! So very happy. Now if it would stop raining I can get my car smoged and go for a road trip to see my daughter and granddaughters and extended family....I need to see them, missing everyone so much. I hope you have a good day and a nice weekend. Any fun plans? Take care xo
