Hi Cat! Thank you so much for being so warm and friendly. Right now Im still freakin' out about this..just been over a month and I get anxiety during the night...which might be from a slightly low BS..my body was used to high sugars for a while before this was figured out. Went from 6.1->9.1 in 6 months..so the low Bs sensation for me is at 85... tnx again for the sweet message.. hugs, meryl
I felt good yesterday and skipped the pain pill. That was a big mistake. I think maybe it builds up in the system because this morning I felt bad. Tomorrow is the colonoscopy. I can't eat anything but clear liquids today. At five I start drinking that stuff, a gallon, and then four a.m, another one.
Today is warmer and overcast, more blue than grey. I picked up three big clay pots yesterday and got out the stuff to paint them with. I am making a plant stand. When I do art it really calms me down, very relaxing. I never see any doctors, just do tests. Tomorrow a liver specialist will look them all over and then I finally know what's up.
I watched the Oscars' too. I love the fashion, design and the jewels. Everyone looks so pretty. I ended up on another channel before it ended. I am checking out the news today. I think they will have the highlights on E. If you want to see a good movie, I thought the best was "Les Miserables." I cried manny times seeing that. I would like to see all of them. There were many good movies made this year.
I bet you are glad that you have no doctors this week. Are you feel ing better now? How is Jim? I was silly asking you about the Old Testament. Heh, you can tell I am an ex-catholic! I know it is called the Talmud.
Thank you for telling me of your holiday. Did you enjoy the celebration? I love studying about philosophy and all the different religions. I am reading the Bible and Al-QAl-Qur'an, the Upanishads and the Tao. Is your Holy book the Old Testament? Are there other books as well?
I hope you are having a good morning. I am going soon to the store for art supplies. My tremor is completely gone and to me that is a miracle. I am excited about starting my art again. I have so many ideas. Maybe I will paint a giraffe for you. Painting animals is one of my favorites. Lots
Hi Cat, Sorry you weren't feeling well yesterday. Are you feeling any better today? This morning has flown by and that is how it is for me lately. I am on pain medication and it is strong, so I have a tendency to fall asleep during the day. I don't like losing time. Today is very dull and grey. It is deciding whether it wants to rain or to snow or to not do anything. Chris is going to his friend's home later today to paint his bathroom for him. He has to patch up some damage from a water leak, and then put on two coats of paint, so I don't expect him to be home until late. I wish I could go with him because I like talking to his friend. He is interested in politics and I am too, but I don't feel like being up that much. I am trying to get motivated to do some house cleaning. I need to do some laundry, clean the bathroom and clean up my room. I also have to get my closet organized. I hope that I get some energy going to do that. So what is going on with you and with your health now? How is Jim doing? You are going out for a holiday? Can you tell me a little bit about the celebration? I love to learn new things. Thanks for your prayers, they are deeply appreciated. Have a nice time at the synagogue. Lots
Good Morning Cat. Opened the garafe door a bit to get the papers. Who do you think darted in and went right to the place where I have his treats. Boy it is cold where Pauly and Kathy live...below zero. Russ went to Neurlogist could hardly walk by time he got to office he was so exhausted he had to sit down. The nurse gave him water. Doctor...you look great see me in 6 months...new Senior Health Care???? My Bg 102. Off to Tops. Hope bth you and Jim doing well. Hope no more snow. Take good care. HUGS,Reed Chico says hello. His full name CHICO SANTOS.
Hello Cat. I never have a camera handy. Chico jumped up on desk put some of his head on the keyboard and fell fast asleep. I could not type. He loves it here. He comes early goes home late. For the first time since I have lived in Florida I saw FROST on the ground this morning. Even though I covered my plants the buds got nipped. I was up early had to have blood drawn. BG 106. How are things with you? Yiour rips much better? Hope so. How is Jim doing? Does he find the COUMADAN tires him Russ does. Russ will be 87 in March and has really slowed down. TOPS elections coming up,. No one wants Leader so I guess I am stck for the 6th year. Take good care both of you. Has the snow gone? Hugs,Reed
I am having a hard time getting on Tu as well because I have so many tests. Just this week I have an MRI, endoscopy, and colonoscopy to go to, and the pain clinic is coming up. I wish I could say then it would be all over but I think really it is just beginning! Thank goodness they have a great gift shop at the hospital I go to. I have spent a small fortune in that place. They have great stuff and it is better than the mall and has super good prices. Today we took back the new comforter I bought because it got a hole in it the first time I washed it, and then we decided to go to the Garden Center and I bought seven pots of herbs, rosemary, thyme, parsley, sage, oregeno, mint, and basil. I am going to cook with fresh herbs from now on. How are you feeling lately Susan, and how is your husband coming along? I hope that his blood tests are still coming out well. Are you all healed up from your falls? Don, MissKitka here on Tu has been falling a lot too and passing out due to lows. He got black and blue eyes and bit his lip, a book case fell on him, awful. Zen is so funny. I have been in bed quite a bit, a great big king sized sleep number bed. Zen is always in here with me. She is so funny. I think she thinks that I am a cat, like her mom cat. I have been trying to figure out the way that a cat thinks. So far I have taught her a couple tricks. One is that I have staring contests with her and I see who is going to look away first. She would only stare me down a few minutes and now we are staring each other down for a long time, also seeing which one will blink first. Then I bump my finger on the bed and she bumps her tail every time I bump my finger, and this goes on a long time. Then I taught her to stick out her tounge. I lick my lips like a cat and then she learned how to do it every time I do it. Today I was filing my fingernails and I started to play with her tickling her with it, she likes that a lot. Right now I she is snuggling in the new comforter. I have the heating pad tonight! She is probably mad at me. It was nice out today, but cold. Tonight is supposed to go down to 16, the lowest we have had. It is super windy out there now. The clouds are white against the black sky and it is really blustery. Maybe we will get some snow. I was so surprised by that award. I didn't know we were having awards and I certainly didn't expect to get one. It made me so happy. I like the way that it goes to my page. I guess I better change the design more. Well, we have had a long day, so sleepy. Take Care, Lots
Good Afternoon Cat. What a change in the weather. It is 50 and a freeze tonight. Tom will have to cover the plants. Chico is here sound asleep in the Florida room. My eye is much,much better.The bushes are all confused. With all that warm weather they thing it is Spring and are all in full bloom. I wonder if they will bloom when Spring is here. Because so low he has to come back in a week. 2 days he took 5 mgs. How is Jim doing? I hope you are feeling much,much better. BG 102. Take good care. All the snow gone? My best to Jim. HUGS,Reed
Hello Cat. Raining here 53 and very damp. Russ went for his COUMADAN check 1,5 it should be 2.5 so I imagine the doctor will call later with a change medication. It changes from time to time. I went to my PCP everything fine. I guess I am going to live LOL. Tom comes tonight. He is doing Lent. No bread rolls potatoes pasta desserts but he will have sugar free jello. Glad Jim's Coumadab test right on target. I hope you get over the respiraty proble,s. My ladies loaded me down with sugar free candies. Happy Valentines Day to you both. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Hope your doing better Cat & your hubby too. This week is moving week for Kevin & family. The guys are there packing everyday and tomorrow they start loading the trucks. Friday morning everything gets shipped to Long Island and we also will be leaving early Friday for our first trip there. Hope the weather stays good. I'm a bit tired. After this moving week, the following Fri-Sat-Sun we go to Pittsburgh to move Pete into a house. He needs more space. Well just take care =)
Hello Cat. Can you believe it is 81 here. All my TU friends talking about cold and snow. I had Chico 9 hours yesterday. This morning at 7 he was at the doorand is still here. In the Florida room,I have cushions that belong to outside chairs. He jumps on top of them in the sun and sleeps and sleeps. My eye is getting better. The redness is gone. The soreness is gone but it still feels puffy. I am still using the drops. Poor Russ has doctor's appointments T W Th. Th is for COUMADAN. BG 104. How are your ribs? I hope healing well. Hope Jim is doing well. Give him my best. Take care both of you. HUGS,Reed
hi Cat, we actually went down to Philly Friday and stayed there at my sister's so we could avoid the snow. then we ended up only getting 4 or 5 inches. The funeral was really perfect, the music and the tributes to my uncle were fantastic. At his request, bourbon was served at the reception. "Virginia Gentleman", which he certainly was. thanks for checking in.
