Lots, I asked around and SEAGATOR said he had had a message from you. So sorry to hear about the tumor. I hope it is not malignant. Nice to know however that you are not dead or something. Please keep me posted when you can.

Dear Ellen,

I got worried and so came to your page. From what I can gather you are not well. I don't live far so if you need help just let me know. I will pray for you.

Hi Lots,Dog Fight story...a few weeks back my dogs got into a terrible fight.I have never seen such goings on.I think they were going to fight till one killed the other.It was awful and hard to break up.I have always had one dog that could be nice to the others but would always be mean at times to the others..so I guess enough was enough and this dog took a stand. I love both dogs but never can they be together again.So for now-weeks now,I have this one inside.Her ears are big and when she gets excited.looks like she may take to flight any minute :)
I read where you posted on Gator's page.I am thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers.You know we all care and come looking for you when you don't post.Can't shake us with a stick cause we <3 our friend :)

Hi Ellen-So sorry to hear from Reed's page that you are not feeling well. I know you were really trying to make the most of each day by being active. I have been mostly tired these days,since the move. The boxes are almost gone and it is starting to feel like home. Zorro has adapted quite well. He has 2 windows to look out of and sometimes we are able to open them. The weather has gotten cooler, which I am happy about. Our furniture fits quite well in the new place. My giraffe collection is spread around in all of the rooms. I certainly hope you feel better soon. Take good care of yourself.
Regards to Chris, Ammi and Zen. Susan

Hi Ellen-It looks like you haven't been on too much lately. I hope all is well with you. I think you were supposed to see some new docs.
I am just starting to feel at home here. The boxes are disappearing and things are going into place. Zorro has adjusted quite well, but disappears under my bed when he hears any voices. I like having no steps, everything on one floor. Hope to hear from you soon. Susan

Thinking of you this morning, Lots. Hope all is well. Love your new quote.

It's been awhile since I've heard from you. I do hope you are alright. These crazy bodies of ours really have us going don't they? So far every things been OK with me. A little indigestion but not much. Blood sugars still go up and down 64 - 325. Par for the course. There doesn't seem to be any way I can stop it. I have a running argument for more Novolog from the doctor. She's convinced I'm taking too much and perhaps I am . I go into see her next week with my two meters a food list blood sugar tables and Dexcom readouts. She should be able to find something from those.
Please drop me a line and let me know how your doing.

Hi Ellen, Thanks for the kind words on my latest blog. I don't post asking for support often but when I do I can count on friends like you.

Hi Ellen, glad to see on Reed's page you are getting some answers. really glad you saw the endo. the fair starts tomorrow. I have to make my chili today and also my new bread, which is a very large onion rye that I've been working on, tweaking the recipe a bit. ryes can be so finicky. our herbs and beans are finally taking off. I've made the beans grow into what I call my "green bean house" - up a trellis and then over ropes to make a "roof" over to the fence. it's fun to get in there. like a secret hideaway.

Ellen-Hope you are feeling better. I saw on Cathy's page that you weren't feeling too good. Today is such a beautiful day, cool and sunny almost like Sept. It makes me feel better. I wanted to ask you if you use syringes ? I don't anymore and have them from when I did. I would be happy to send them to you if you could use them. I currently use pens for both insulins that I take. We are down to the wire for the packing. Have to keep some things for the day of the move and, of course, all my meds. I hope to set up the kitchen over the weekend, if I can find the things that go in there. Enjoy your day. Susan
