hi Reed, no news here. I'm making some sourdough bread, I can't for the life of me figure out how I can make it so it's not so flat. I thought I'd made some changes for the better today, but it looks more like ciabatta or focaccio than a regular free-form loaf,. oh well, they taste good. nice day here, we just took our walk to the far end of the lake, that will help as my bg before was 152. hope you're having a good day, and get a good report from the foot doc.

Hi Mr Gator. Good luck at the foot Dr. I go every three months now. I have the fungus and its just easier for him to do my nails. 45 % of people over age 50 have fungal infections in their toe nails. Laser holds it off for awhile but does not cure it so I just use the anti fungal stuff.

I went to mass and the adoration chapel this morning. My bg was 99 on wake up but I think it was the dawn effect when I took it Pauly

Hi Reed. Yes, Houston, we have a problem. I think a couple of days ago it was your page. I'd leave a comment. It looked like it took and then it'd disappear.Also the entire TD site is running slowly. Somebody said it was because the chatroom was also running. I talked to Doris, Linda and Trudy in the chatroom this morning. It was fun.
There is also a problem with my computer, or, I whould say, the one my sister lent me. I was trying to install software for my printer and it keeps asking for an 11 digit serial number, but the one on the back is 12 digits.
I think I'm gonna close up shop and chill out.
Is Russ's stomach any better? He needs some chicken soup.
You must be so proud of Tom, doing the readings. Some people just have natural talent for that sort of thing. But I bet it felt funny to not go to church on Sunday morning.
We had a cold weekend - in the high 40's with drizzle. Yest was Trevor and my last weekend together. I feel very sad that he is leaving town. We went to Target, KMart, The Container Store doing various errands. He does not have a job and I don't even think he has been looking. He is the baby of the family and coddled so he can just go back up to northern Minn and crash at his folk's for awhile.
Hope you guys all have a good week ahead. My potted tulips are still looking great!

hi Reed, we walked around the lake. I think I lowered my basal a little too much for this 1 hour of walking, as I was 166 when we got back. excuse my French, but it seems to always be a crap shoot. I try to do my best.

My mother has a pacemaker. she's never had any trouble with it. I don't even remember it being a traumatic experience with her getting it. she's doing ok for 89.

finally got my Sunday paper, and have the cooking shows on PBS in the background.

HI Reed- Hope you are well today. My BG was a little high this morning b/c I had a few peanut M & M 's last night. I am BAD !!!!! Jim took me out to breakfast at a local diner. We don't go out for breakfast too often. I had a delicious omlette, it had spinach, brocoli and mozzarella cheese. It is a beautiful day here. Getting warmer during the week. Have a good week. Cat

Thank you for all the prayers Reed....I pray for you, and other members as well ♥ Prayers going up from many of us...joining into a thick wave ♥
Hope you're having a restful day, and I pray that Russ will soon see someone who can give him answers!

Hi Mr Gator. Hope Russ is better and you liked the mass last night. I went to mass at 7:30. Not too full. The other masses are more people as it was the kids fist communion today. My BG 88 on wakeup.

Hope all stays well in the Gator house.

hi Reed, how are you? what do you have planned for today. It's nice weather here, if I can pep up, maybe we'll take a nice walk. woke up with a good bg 97, then bolused for breakfast, ate, and proceeded to sink like a stone. tested was 60. still feeling shaky here, even though I'm 166. also irritated I don't have my Sunday NYTimes, the market didn't get any this morning.

Hi Mr Gator, Sorry to hear about Russ. I will keep him in my prayers. I went to the Adoration Chapel today and spent an hour. Very peaceful. Good place to read the bible which I did There were 4 people there.
You are in Mass as I write this. I will go at 730 am in the morning, my normal time. Take care My BG is good and all my medical tests are normal.

Sorry to hear about Russ. I hope he gets better. It seems like many of us here at Tu are having problems right now with the others in our lives. My shoulder really gives me problems if I think I can do more than I can. Of course that's most of the time! LOL! I get too big for my britches! LOL! The main trouble I have (right now) is trying to reach up to my head and trying to reach behind me. I can get it up to aboput cheast leavel and do good but if I try to go higher it HURTS BADLY!!! The pt ask me how I washed my back I told her I just turn my back to the shower nosel and let the water hit my back. LOL! Well it's not the cleanest but it works LOL!

oh Reed, sorry to hear about Russ, my, he is having so much trouble. I see the chat is still enabled, feel free to add to it if you want, I had a nice little conversation with Barbara (jrtpup)

hi Reed, good morning, I got up early to make some cheese bread. my friend in the rehab once mentioned how much she loved making it for her family, so I thought I'd surprise her. I'm going to quilt airing at another friend's church today, they are having an old-fashioned swiss steak sale too, they have all these unusual benefits up here that I'd never heard of in Virginia. so the church isn't too far from the rehab. sorry you missed the chat with the pharmacist yesterday, it was pretty good. I know Emily works hard putting these things together, there's a lot of technical computer stuff she's had to master to get the video & the chat going. bg was 79 this morning, one of those days when I didn't go up from 6AM to breakfast.

Hello Reed,
Sorry for being MIA. It's been a rough week. Work, PT for the ankle and yesterday my rt knee started aching at work. Stomach touchy, having trouble getting enough protein and now having some hair loss =( Have Samantha's 3rd Birthday on Saturday afternoon. Saturday morning having a garage sale. Drug n awful lot out of the attic and basement. Set up everything tonight. Sale starts at 8 AM. Just finished wrapping presents and going thru picture. They asked me for a lot of pictures of Brian as a baby /toddler. They are making collages of Brian and Toni so we can see what the baby might look like. I am exhausted, burning the candle at both ends to get everything done. Plus Kevin asked if I'd bring Taco salad to the party. Lol, do that in my spare time tomorrow (???) Glad to hear all is well at your place and you found a nice Dr.
I'm feeling frustrated with my ankle and now my knee again. Plus they are opposite legs. Cold here again and windy. Wish Spring would come back.
Please take good care of yourself. <3 <3 Joanne
