Hi Reed- Your table looks beautiful for T-giving dinner. We ended up going to friends for a lovely meal. Of course I ate too much, but BG was back to normal this morning. Thanks for all of your messages of concern for Jim. He was put on Lovenox, it is an injectable anti-coagulant. The coumadin wasn't doing the trick. Maybe both together will work better. So now he knows what it is to take shots. Chico is a very cute kittie, and she looks at home on your rug. Did she get some turkey ? Hope you have a nice weekend, and stay away from the stores. Cat
Reed, thr table looks just beautiful, lovely flowers too. Glad you had a good dinner. hope your bg calms down soon. darn steroids. mine was 89 this morning. wondering if I can go another day without changing my infusion set. hope Tom can get to the gym soon, haha. I'm going to try for a walk today. I was going yesterday but then I got so fatigued. I can't shake this cough. it's been 2 weeks, just lingering on.
Oh Reed, I just love the pics. What a beautiful table with the trivets waiting for the food. and Chico checking things out - he must know something good is coming. What beautiful eyes. There are people camping in tents in front of Best Buy stores to get bargains at midnight. Some have been there for 3 days. What a bunch of phooey. I am staying home today and lounging - having tilapia, green beans with almonds, baked root vegetables drizzled in olive oil and pineapple sorbet. Won't eat until maybe 4.
My sister and niece ran this morning in the annual 5K Turkey Trot in downtown Minneapolis. It was a big turnout because of warm weather.
I give abundant thanks for TD and all of my friends. Blessings to all!!!
hi reed, your thanksgiving menu sounds great! what is in the Nova Scotia dressing? ed and I are going out by ourselves. mom is still in the hospital for a couple more days. at least she got the IV out. they want the swelling in her legs to go down. my nephew who lives there will visit her this afternoon.
that cat is really a cutie! nice picture, the colors on the rug really bring out his beauty.
Happy Thanksgiving to you, Russ and Tom, sweetie! I just woke up and found the BF in the kitchen busily working on some home cooked cranberry sauce. He has been going at the Thanksgiving dinner hot and heavy now for three days! He has a couple really great dishes that he makes, one is fresh potato salad and the other is fresh fruit salad. I am lucky because everything he makes is sugar free and still tastes great. I hope you feel okay with the high BG. Sometimes it just makes me kind of sleepy, not too bad in other ways, and I am so happy you have escaped the painful knees in time for the Holiday. I bet that was scary at the cashier when your knee locked. I can walk pretty good now, just sometimes I lose my balance and fall, but mostly that happens at home. The other day I was lucky, fell right into the pile of laundry that BF was getting ready to wash and that was super for me because it didn't hurt at all! I am so sorry about your sister. That would make a sad memory for me too. I guess we have good memories of our loved ones who passed to try to think about today. There was supposed to be four of us today, BF, his name is Chris, his friend Joe, and my son Jesse, and me of course, but I think Jesse is going to eat with his best friend's family. I guess he came home from college and that is too tempting for Jesse to miss seeing his best friend. I think that is nice that you are eating in the dining room and having everything fancy, when you worry is when everyone is eating on a TV table, each in a different room because they don't get along! Here I am going to pull out the good dishes too. Your centerpiece sounds so lovely. You have received so many beautiful things from your students. I know they appreciated all that you did to improve their lives. Lets see, I guess I will open the drapes and check out the day since I am just waking up - it ends up being lovely, blue sky and sunshine, pretty warm too. I hope you have a great day. I can't wait to see those pictures of Chico. Will Chico get a bit of turkey too? I guess I will probably give some to Zen. Ellen
Hi Reed first off I'd like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving and I hope you have a wonderful day. So sorry I haven't been in touch but I've had a few family problems taking up my time here. I am still battleing the Polymyalgia and have managed to get down to 7mg at present which I am really pleased about. Have Mum staying at present and she is enjoying her visit very much. She will go home on Monday and I'll miss her terribly. At the same time Nick and I will be visiting all the family in England this Christmas and will be staying at John and Vanessa's for the Christmas period along with Mum. Hope everything is going ok with you and they manage to sort out the treatment for your knees so you can be pain free soon. Oh and by the way Nick is having trouble with his shoulder again and is due to have another steroid injection at the hospital again of the 3rd December. Take care Reed. Tricia x
Good Morning Gator,was listening to Pauly's music on his page-and thought about you and how it is hard to get people to go to church at times-and you,if at all possible you are always there.Quite an example..Have a good day sweet Gator..
Oh Reed, I wrote a nice long comment this afternoon and now see that it didn't take. I am mad. In summary I got drops for both eyes and ears after waiting 2.5 hours for Urgent care and 1 hour for pharmacy. Got home just wiped out, laid down and now I am wide awake.
