Hi Mr Gator, I am praying hard for both of you. I agree with Marie, maybe he needs to get in and get checked. Went to coffee with the gang this morning. BG 91. Shoulder is better today. Sorry you guys are in a rough patch again.
hi Reed, I think you need to get Russ in to the doctor. ask him if he'd rather go to the hospital. he absolutely needs a walker. get him a nice one, my mom got hers through Medicare. glad doris got featured, it's been a while for her. my stuffed pork loin was fabulous. sunny and cold here, so I'm cleaning the oven, that warms up the kitchen good.
hope you can make the chat this afternoon, or just watch it please. Two old timers who got diabetes as children in the 1940s (yes, 1940s, not a mistake!!) are going to be talking to us. Richard and Tom, Richard was one of my first friends here.
Hi Reed! Jon's cold is better and he went to the hospital this morning for the surgery on his fistula. I pray they find whats not working with it and get it fixed! I can't be there with him because I have to go to a meeting again with a school social worker at 9am doing Alex's past history. The last meeting took 1 1/2 hers. Its very important to get this done quickly, as it is part of the evaulation and IEP there are doing for Alex at school. He is not doing very well in school at all. Its taking hrs for him to get his homework done with us helping, and its frustrating for all of us and him both. He has even gotten to the point of crying now. I do believe he is being made fun of at school and on the bus, but children can be subtle and get away with it.I did here that the school finally got the records they needed from his school in Mass. I hope the school gets started on the actual testing and evaluation for Alex soon. He is learning, but it seems that the pace is too fast for him. Thanks for asking about us. I have not been able to get Alex an appt with a pediatrician and think its because he has no insurance. Medicaid still hadn't processed the paper work this month yet, and it was applied for in Nov. A lot of stress is piling up on me.
Hi Reed- Glad you are getting some warm weather. Here it is chilly and getting colder next week. I have been OK, my BG are mostly in my normal range. But this AM it was 38. I was walking around getting my breakfast ready. Felt fine- go figure. Jim has been wearing the compression stockings & he thinks they are helping his leg. Gotta go make him some lunch. Take care.

Hi MR Gator. Thank you for the long note. I got that pain medication and it is helping. I am icing my shoulder too. I am still praying about your coughing spells. Going to a retirement party this afternoon at my old work place. bg 94 Pauly
hi Reed, we got up at 7 and went to get our blood draws. of course they all know us there. bg 104, a very SAEGATOR-like number, lol! Ed has been busy looking at jobs on the computer and also following investments. He also talks to his brother and some friends everyday. His brother is a senior officer in a huge British bank. today, we are going to try a complcated recipe for a stuffed pork loin. it's rolled up, in the stuffing. the stuffing has dried figs in it. yesterday we were looking all over Newton for figs , haha. then I sent a tweet to the Fig Growers Association and they got right back to me telling me where I could find them. Another reason I love Twitter. that's funny about the new TOPS members.
Reed, I am losing it. My glasses disappeared. I could swear I put them in the same place every night and this morning they were gone - looked everywhere, then again. I ended up wearing this dorky pair that were somewhat blurry. Maybe I have a poltergeist This afternoon the temp on the computer said 25, so I decided to take a couple trips out to the dumpster. I could hardly get the door open it was blowing so hard,, and then there were tiny ice pellets stinging on my face.like sharp little arrows. Tomorrow I do have to go for an INR but at least I"ll know what to wear. I am also going to a shoe store that emphasizes comfort over style. I remember last year asking the clerk if a particular style gripped the ice very well and he said "I have an attachéd garage so don't walk on the sidewalk too often". Must be nice. LOL
Hope you re wearing a bright tropical shirt to go with the warm weather.
Thanks Seagator. I have been reading your comment page and so think that you and someone in your family is sick. When Dick or I have a cough, we tell people that "we" have a cough, because the other, sleepwise, might as well.
Hi MR Gator, I went to Walgreens and bought the pain medication for my shoulder today. See if it helps. Went to Dentist for cleaning. Alot warmer today BG on wake up 74 I am praying that you get over your cough! and Russ too.
hi Reed, we got about 4 inches of snow last night, so Quilts of Valor was cancelled today. also am putting off the blood draw until tomorrow. so got back to the welcomes here....
I am supposed to be in charge of the raffle quilt, but I got the help of a friend who designed it. we want it to be an original piece. since 2012's was very traditional, we wanted this one to be bold and contemporary. we went to a nice quilt shop a couple hous away from here yesterday, and bought almost $300 in fabric. (since I haven't bought any fabric since you-know-when, I was shocked at how prices have risen). the people in the shop were amazed at our selections. it was great to be with my friends who are experienced quilters, and quite close friends too. we had a nice time driving to and fro and covered a lot of topics. now I need some help making up kits so lots of guild members can have a part in making the quilt. The pattern is a variation of New York Beauty, a traditional pattern. can't wait to get started.....
myu numbers have been so-so. I need to change my infusion set. also a bit stressful here lately.
Hello Reed, It was an OK day. Work was awful again. We've had some patients die due to the flu. The weather has turned nasty and we are to get snow & freezing rain thru the night. It has started already. I hate driving in this weather. Joe will take me to work if the roads are bad. Unfortunately no matter how bad the weather gets we are expected to be there. Well the news for Kevin & Jen is good. They put their house on the market on last Saturday and sold it today. I'm happy for them. Less things to worry about. Too bad you couldn't take advantage of the quiet night and sleep a bit longer. Wishing for some sunshine here. Take care. <3 <3 Joanne
Hi Reed, How is the cold going? Away, I hope. It is terrible that Russ has stopped coughing and gotten to sleep and then you were up. I hope tonight you get a good sleep and me too. It is only Tuesday and to tell you the truth I am tired already. I hope I make it to Friday! I have a meeting with the doctors in my clinic tomorrow and I don't want to go any more than you probably want to go to TOPs feeling bad with a cold, but I guess we have no choice in the matter. I think it is funny, Chico spending so much time for you. Pretty soon the owners will forget that they own a cat! Zen is doing very well. Cats are sure fun, aren't they? Well, hopefully you will get some good sleep tonight and feel chipper for your meeting. Here is a picture for you that Chico might like. Take care. Lots.
Hi Reed sorry I haven't been on here for a while but have been ill with flu (ye I had my flu jab!!!!) and then last week I had a fall and ended up in A&E due to a whiplash type injury to my neck, a sprained ankle and a wrenched knee. I am slowly on the mend thankfully and will be going to England on Monday ready to help out with the new twins as they will be born next Thursday 24th. I'm just thankful I should be fit to travel. Just had extensive blood tests done to see if anything unntoward going on that causes me to fall so often. How are things with you Reed? hope your weather is good, it is quite cold here and there is much snow in England but none so far here in Ireland. Well hope you are good. Tricia x
Mr Gator, I am having the Claeretian Missionaries of St Jude Priests pray and say masses for you at the alter of St Jude. Maybe he can help you guys. I want you and Russ to get over your colds and coughs. I am offering up prayers also.
Hi Mr Gator, My shoulder is still bothering a lot. Its always worse when its cold. I have had this a few years but this year is worse. BG on wakeup was 93. I am glad Russ is a little better. WX is still cold up here. Pauly
