Oh Reed - that dang coumadin! If you ask me, it's nothing but trouble. I am so glad you got out today and got to go to lunch. It always helps to have a break. It is pitch black here at 7 pm - I am waiting for the sirens to go off, and sticking close to the tv. The bike path 1/2 block away i swarming with riders, so maybe I'm more concerned thanthe average person.
I thought I had an appointment with the shrink tomorrow, but checked my calendar and it is a week from tomorrow. I might head over anyway because the used booktore across from the clinic is starting its annual Memorial Day sale - everything an additional 30% off. I best take my backpack on wheels. Sigh.
hi Reed, please ask someone from TOPS to drive you home, I'm sure someone can do that. I think you might want to think about getting that neighborhood lady to help you with errands, do you still have her number? You don't want to get sick yourself. I wish I could tell you some good news, just know how you are cared for by so many here, and we will keep you in our prayers. bg was 201 at 5AM, bolused and got it down to 163 by breakfast.
Hello Reed, Sorry to hear about Russ. Seems when the ball starts rolling it is hard to stop. I hope he can find some help. I used Percocet post surgery without problems but he is pretty old and probably sensitive to that stuff. It's sad when things start getting difficult. My Mom will soon be 90 and her vision is her biggest problem. I have a post op Dr appt today and have to take my Mom to the heart Dr too. Hope you are able to weather the troubles and stress and stay healthy. Praying for all of you.
Hi Reed. Sorry to hear about Russ being bad again and hope he improves soon. Still on the 12mg of steroid and probs will be for another week then will lower to 11mg. Nick waiting to go for a hosp app with the Rheumy but hasn't got a date yet. Hopefully he won't have to wait too long. I am going over to visit Mum next Monday and then bring her back here for a couple of weeks. I will be home on Wednesday. The weather has warmed up a little here and the rain has finally stopped for a few days so things are good. Take care Reed. Tricia x
Hi! ty very much. I don't know anyone personally tht has diabetes. I've been searching for a site tht I can meet ppl w diabetes n vent about it. I have only had it for 5 yrs. its been quite an adjustment. I will def b asking advice on a lot of diabetic topics. ty for the warm welcome ;)
Well Reed, when I sent you the message below earlier, I was on my daughter's laptop and did not have immediate access to the ploto I had found for your birthday....so I sent a temporary substitute. The plan was to send you THE photo when I got home....but can't access them....can't find them anywhere!! I'll look further....if not, will have to start from scratch, AND have lost a WHOLE lot of family pics.
Hi Mr Gator. I will say prayers to the blessed mother for Russ and hope he can endure as he goes along. Please listen to all the wonderful women on your board and take their advice on these drugs and driving. We want all to be safe in the Gator house. Wake up this morning was 91 but I didnt sleep well last night and think I went low and took some sugar to raise me up.
I went to mass this morning which I have been doing fairly regularly on Tuesdays. Pauly
Yes Perocet is a really strong drug. Listen to what Kathy says about finding one of the members at TOPS to drive u. He really don't need to drive taking it. It does dope u up badly. His judgement will be impared while taking that drug. Just to let u know u don't need to be in a wreck from him taking his meds. K takes cumiton too and bruses really easily. When taking that drug u seem to bruse more easily. We noticed that back when he started taking it a few years ago. Tell Russ to hold on!
On a brighter side my dr told me today that I didn't have to take more pt!!!! YEAH!!!!!! I can do the exercises at home. Duh I knew that! That made my day there!! tickeled me pink!!! was so glad to hear it!!!!! Now to go off to the other dr at 2. Life huh???
Oh Reed I came over to leave a comment and got a big drop down box saying YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF TU DIABETES TO LEAVE A COMMENT. Sheesh. Reed I am so sorry about Russ, for the sake of all of you. He must NOT drive while taking percoset. I've taken it several times, most recently last summer for my ruptured spleen and it completely dopes you up. I could hardly carry on a conversation. Please get on the phone now and tart calling people to see who can give you a ride tomorrow. I know the meetings are a way for you to get out and socialize and I'm sure any number of members would be delighted to give you a ride. You need a break for a couple of hours.
Please take care. We are all praying for the best outcome, all thing considered.
Hi Reed- So sorry you have to deal with the ill Russ. He should be living at an assisted living facility where he can get 24/7 care from professionals. You should not have to take care of him. You have enough health problems of your own to deal with. I am OK, my BG are up and down. The deer are enjoying eating our newly planted flowers and our hostas. I guess they have to eat too. Rainy weather today. Hope your knees are better. Take care. Cat
Hey Reed how's things today??? I noticed that u and almost all the greeters go "backwards" from me. OK I go backwards LOL! I start with the last person who joined and go to the top. U and everyone else starts with the 1st person on the page. Like I said I'm backwards. LOL!
Morning my dear Reed!! I'm b-a-a-a-c-k!! Was not angry with you....or away, or sick, but my computer was. It was completely infected! Had to upgrade security, and re-enter everywhere....including here. This on the day before your birthday. I had looked here and there for the perfect birthday pic for you...and am sending it anyway. Better late than never!!! I read here that you're not up to snuff...and that Russ isn't doing well. I'm so sorry....I pray that things get better soon...and hope you have a good day ♥ Here is a wish for a BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY....with a special pic for our dear Reed....
