HEY Catlove! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! That meant a lot to me :) I had a nice birthday, my husband took me to dinner and bought me a nook book reader! We have been doing good, we started a new hobby ... we have a saltwater tank now. It's so much fun having this to do together. Our animals are so funny, they love this fall weather. It's so much fun to watch my dog and cat chase each other around the backyard :) How have you been doing? Anything new going on? Have a wonderful week hun!!!

Good Morning,Cat. I am pooped today. Yesterday was a long day up at 4AM to bed at 121PM. Tom finished the Marathon. The route was in the middle of a major highway no trees or shade right in the boiling sun. He lost 7 pounds. My legs and ankles like rubber today. This too will past >How are you doing? Your readings good. A big hello to Jim. HUGS,Reed

Hello Cat. I am late. Running around like a chicken with its head cut off getting ready for Reed's Diner to open on Thanksgiving. I just need to pick up the fresh turkey on Wed. No TOPS meeting Wed just weigh in and go. I put some photos up. Tired today. The old gray mare not As young as he used to be. I hope you are doing well not too low and hello to Jim. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Cat. The wind was blowing a gale woke me up at 5 so I got up. Tested BG 112. I am sorry you keep running so low. I wonder what the cause is? North Carolina was great but good to be home. Sunday St. Augustine holds its first Marathon. They want to make it an annual event. Tom is running. It starts at 6:15. He has told Reed's Diner he wants pasta Saturday night. Thanksgiving right here at home for Russ.Tom and me. A far cry from the 38 years i did all the family holiday dinners. My best to Jim. Hope you both are doing well. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed

Thank you for the welcome. Did they diagnose you as Type 1 (Did they diagnose you as LADA, did they have that classification in 1999?) Do you have any of the diabetic complications, please excuse me in advance if I am too nosey. Diabetes being a chronic condition leaves me thirsty for knowledge.

Hi Catlover! The picture I put up is of Kahlia, the first cat my husband and I adopted. She died of feline cancer a year and a half ago and I miss her daily. We have 3 other furry children, and given the smallest encourgement I could on and on about our cats.

hi cat, he'll be back before we know it. I think it's a good idea to take little breaks from time to time. I'm feeling somewhat accomplished today. A quilt I've been working on since 2003 is now all put together in the top except for a couple of flowers. I should be able to get that done by the weekend. then it's off to the quilter. I have a marvelous gal who does the most unbelievable work with her longarm machine. I'm sorry about the other thing. I'm glad you're able to hang out here with all of us and spread a little cheer.

wow cat thanks for reminding me about the election tomorrow. I always vote, even though there is a one party stranglehold on politics in this county. Glad to hear you're active in that arena.

Hi Catlover, Thank you very much for welcoming me to this site. It was very kind and it made me feel less alone, since I don't know anyone else with diabetes. I hope to spend more time on the site in the near future. Thanks again.

Hi Cat, Thank you for the message. I updated on the forum. I do have to have the Vitrectomy. Very soon. I am okay with it all, as I would love to see again without looking through a Webb of blood. :) Love to you xo

hi Cat, boy am I pooped. I took a mile walk at noon myself and did the big blue test. bg was a little high, but I'd just eaten some cole slaw. so it went down. now we just got back from a strenuous mile around the block, and I'm very surprised to see it is 11 points higher than when I started! oh brother, this disease is evil.
