Oh Reed I think I am losing it. I was walking by the pastry counter at the store that thought "why don't I take a cake decorating class?" Now what would I do that or - I don't even know how to bake a cake. Plus, I'd for sure end up buy a big bunch of supplies and then relegate them to the closet with all my other half pursued hobbies. LOL. Sweatshirt weather here today - sunny bright and cool. Perfect. Did some more deep cleaning. I am on a roll.
Hi Reed Hope you eye appointment went well and things are improving. Nick is doing ok with his shoulder. I think it will be a few weeks before he knows if it was successful. I had my bloods done again and see the doc for the results on Thusday morn but not sure if I will be able to reduce the steroid or not as I have had quite a few flare ups these past few weeks. Still, I'll see what the doc says. Take care Reed. Tricia x
wow Reed, I'm surprised they don't want to check up with your eyes sooner. she makes me come every 3 months, no matter how good my pressure is. I take Xalatan drops. have you been missing any times with the drops? that's important. I'm going to quilts of valor tomorrow, I need it.
Thanks for your daily greetings! I have not been on TuDiabetes recently, as things are quite busy. I am teaching and doing some proofreading work in addition to my research and need to use the hours when A is sleeping productively (which is hard sometimes).
We are doing fine. We fought a cold this weekend, but are back to health now. A stood for the first time (just for about 10 seconds before toppling over). He still likes to walk around holding our hands, which is cute, but a good source of a backache!
My numbers have not been good, but this week was a fresh start and so far so good!
Glad that your numbers returned to normal and hope that the weather cooperates too!
I had a terrible night, and today I was sure my bp would reflect it, but it was ok, 140/80. a1c 6.3. so I will continue on. sorry to hear about Russ, I thought he was progressing, hope it's just a small setback. no leads, no nothing. glad cat enjoyed her birthday dinner. ed used to go to Bonefish all the time when he was on the road. I really need to get back to the sewing room.
HI Reed- We loved the Bonefish Grille. I had grouper and Jim had orange roughey. Our friends had swordfish and something called wolf fish. (I tasted it and it was good.) I even splurged on some wine and dessert. I prepared in advance with my insulin, took a little more than usual and my BG didn't surge into the stratusphere. It was 97 this AM. Hope you are doing well today as is Russ. It went up to 93 yesterday, too hot for me especially April. Today it is 78, much better. Cat
I had kinda of a blue morning thinking about Donna. You know how it goes some days are better than others. I decided to go to daily mass which I had not been too. Holy Smokes there were 50 people in the little chapel. We have some pretty devout Catholics in our parish. There were hardly any seats. Both Priests celebrated mass.
The priest remembered my name which impressed me.
What a great gift the church offers to get recharged again. I was glad I went and will take it in again from time to time.
Hello Reed. Hope you are well. Been really busy. Pete home this weekend for a wedding in Lancaster about 1.5 hrs away. He got home early Friday cuz his boss called him in to talk first thing in the morning. He was given a promotion and a 10% increase to match the new job title.He's pretty happy with that.Spent Friday with him. Joe was golfing.He is still having some emotional issues.Being in Lancaster was hard. Becca told me he had a few tough moments at the wedding. Not only being in Lancaster which is where his friend Ricky had that accident last fall but being at the wedding with thoughts that Ricky who would have been his best man when the time comes ..... is no longer here. He still is struggling especially right after the death of his boss. But we had some good times Friday.
I am doing ok. Work is ok too, some days are bad, just short-staffed. Now my free time is taken up with physical therapy 3X/week. MRI had shown a thickening of the Achilles tendon and a large amt of inflammation. Post surgery I can no longer take NSAIDS so that is a problem. But doing exercises and ultrasound therapy to reduce the inflammation. Still getting shooting pains there when I walk. Weather here has been crazy too. From the high 40's to 89 yesterday. Today so far at 65. Went on a shopping trip Saturday and bought about 6 new outfits for summer. Hope Russ gets his BP straightened out and glad you are well. Hope your eye appt. goes well. Always things of everyone here .... just busy with work, PT and getting things for my events coming up. Samantha turns 3 end of April and my D-I-L baby shower in early May. take care <3 <3 Joanne
Reed - you did good at KFC, my friend. I had forgotten about the mac cheese. Yum................... Some areas in northern Minn had a foot of snow last night. Some schools were closed. What next. I once again had to wear my full length coat and the Y was packed because it was too cold to run outside. I did a full workout and it felt great. So very glad to be feeling so much better.
Guess what I found when decluttering - a wall outlet I'd forgotten about! It was behind a little table. Trevor took the table to the basement and now I have a convenient place to plug in the vacuum cleaner. Hah.
I must go over to Cat's and wsih her a happy birthday. She is such a nice. lady.
Hi Reed- Thanks so much for the happy birthday wishes. I really appreciate all the wishes from my TuD friends. Jim is taking me out to a new restaurant in our area called "Bonefish Grille." I love fish and am anxious to try it. BG this AM was 83, I'll take it !!! Have a nice day today !!! CAT
We're doing well today at 3 I go back to the dr who done my surgery on my shoulder I already know he's going to say I'm healing well. Will find out then about the pt I've got to take. K is doing good too. I had seen that advertisement on TV about KFC giving that cake to ppl. Nice!!! I don't eat cake but I'm sure K would love it! LOL!
hi Reed, wow, I would have been much higher than 153. let's see if you gain any weight. that's good about Russ, yea! so did they get someone else to do the reading at church? did you hear Minneapolis got snow this morning? I'm sitting here in shorts and t shirt, it's going to be really hot today. thanks for the prayers. it helps. tonight we are going to a charity event. it's about the biggest thing all year here in Sussex county it's a big food tasting thing - I never can get my insulin right for it, and I don't even touch the desserts.
Thank you for the welcome message - looking forward to expand my relationship with other that are dealing with Diabetes. My daughter will be 4 years old this friday and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 8 months ago.
