Hi Reed- So glad that you are feeling better. You will be able to bring in the new year in the proper way. (banging pots and pans at midnight ) LOL Hope Russ is feeling better too. We are having a quiet new years at the house of some friends. Congrats on being a featured member. Wishing you a very Happy New year and a Healthy 2012.
I am glad you feeling a little better. You take it easy now. I said some prayers for you Tom and Russ this morning. We are going to get some rain and snow this weekend. Kathy wont like that. I am still praying for you Mr Gator.
Hello Reed, Just wanted to drop by and see how you are doing. It's a little over 3 weeks for me. It's been pretty good. Some bumpy days. Still get some diarrhea and some nausea from time to time but most days eating is good. Lost 20 lbs already so that's a plus. I still get pretty tired. Would like to start walking a little but the weather hasn't been great. So glad to hear you are better. I am hoping 2012 will be a very good year for everyone. Going to Brian's today and he is taking us to Longwood Gardens. Gonna take some pictures to post later. Tomorrow would be my Dad's 94th Birthday. Miss him a lot. He's gone since 1999. He loved his Grandsons and would be proud of the men that they are now. Well wishing you, Russ and Tom a happy New Year. Take Care <3 <3 Joanne
Morning Reed....so relieved to see that you're feeling better :) Mason (our 4 y.o. grandson) spent the night....he's as good as gold! He'll spend the day with us. Tomorrow...already New Year's Eve!!! Our youngest grandson, Stephen (18 months) will be coming for an overnight stay....while Mason and his brother Riley will be spending the night at the other grandma's! Moms and dad are planning to go out for New Year's night! Tomorrow in the morning will go to church for a Mass of Christian Burial, for our pastor's grandmother. Losing a loved one anytime is awful....but even more so during the Holidays. Well...gotta get going....want to wish the Birthday members a good one before Mason wants to go outside to make a snowman!!
oh Reed, that is good news you're feeling better. my best to Russ. I woke up at 4 with a bg of 82, couldn't go back to sleep, and when I decided I wanted to eat something, I was 166. can't win, the sneaky diabetes monster like to trip you up as much as he can. then he holds you down with his foot on your chest and laughs at you.
I made that pear chutney last night and my goodness it is good. My friend Meg developed the recipe. dried cherries soaked in rum, ginger, shallots, orange peel all went in with the pears WOW, having a small portion with some ham tonight.
Hi Reed hope you feel better soon. Yes Mum is still here, I take her home on next Wednesday the 4th Jan. I am feeling much better now thanks and have again reduced the steroids so hopefully things will be ok. The doc said the boot can come off in 2 weeks time so that is something to look forward to. It is a cold wet windy day here today and we have the fire lit so nice and cosy indoors. Wishing you a very happy New Year and good health in 2012 Tricia x
Hi Reed, good morning. It is a special TGIF morning for me. I have a whole week off from work to start off the New Year. Today is going to be busy. I will be getting everything I can done before I leave. My partner (co-worker) is the absolute best that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She is a angel. She will take care of the clients while I am gone, but I want to make it easy on her. Now how have your been feeling? Is your cough going away? I hope you and Russ are feeling better! Are you planning any wild partying on New Year's Eve? No dancing on the table with a lampshade on your head!
Do you have any New Year's resolutions? Mine are all about diabetes.Well, off to work now. Have a nice day!
Thank you for the birthday wishes, Seagator!! Sorry it took me a few days to get back to you; I've been a bit busy and got distracted with a few other things that needed to be taken care of here. I hope you and your family had a great Christmas and are looking forward to a super 2012!
Hi Reed. Sorry you're not tip top yet Me neither. Still warm here today. I did not feel well enough to go to the Y, but did do a little walking outdoors. People mobbing the Xmas aisle at Target to get deep discounts. Then, on the other side of the store, they were showing Valentine stuff!
Congrats lol....some of us "greeters" are featured :) No more sandwiches for you mister....not till you're better! Stick to soup and tea:) Hope you are feeling yourself again soon, have a relaxing "rest of the day"!
glad you figured it out, I hope my choices get it too. wow it's really cold here today. Ed just went out to get the paper and came back with some hot&sour soup. now that stuff will clear your head nicely! I waited a little too long to change my infusion set. that small piece of toast I had this morning got my bg up to 297 - so I immediately changed out. darn it, now I'm feeling not so good.
oh Reed, that's great that Russ is feeling better, and you are improving. my bg this morning was 76, so I had a piece of sourdough toast, I made it yesterday, and it was quite an improvemnet from my last loaf. Ed's teasing me saying he's going to have to go out and buy bread, that it's almost gone, and then I look in the freezer and there are 3 loaves. today I'm going to make that pear chutney recipe I sent you. I have my free ham from Shop-Rite I need to eat. also made some Swiss Chard last night, delish. anyway, we need more people to do the TuDiabetes awards. I remember your telling me you had trouble filling it out. if you don't want to fill a couple of them out, just type "none" in the name. ask Tom to help you, you have to scroll down in the window to get to the "submit" button. I did it yesterday and I can see how it might be a bit confusing. I tried to nominate new people from who won last year. let me know what problems you might have with it.
