Hi Twiddle, I am so sorry to check your page and find out that little smudge passed away. I am so sad. I don't know what to say. I think that all animals and kids should be exempt from pain, sickness and death and that is how it would be if I was running the world. I bet you are sad. Thankfully you have the other cats to shore you up. I am sorry. I hope you are doing okay. Hope to hear from you soon. Ellen
Hey Twiddle how are you.? My computer was messed up and my cell too. I haven't been around for a while. I see that you haven't either. I hope that you are busy and that I don't have to worry about you. I think about you often, when I see the moon, flowers, and especially when I walk through the woods because you are the only person I know who believes in fairies! I was very sick from that operation with lots of complications. Now I cannot eat fat, protein or sugar and I have to keep all my BGS stable or I itch terribly inside and out. It is part of the liver problem. Nobody ever told me that liver disease was a complication of diabetes. Anyway, it got to the point where I was itching so bad and especially in my throat and I could not sleep for over a month. I was so exhausted that I was acting hysterical. I had to go into the hospital for insomnia and to stabilize my BGs and address my throat problem. I was there over Christmas. I lost a lot of weight. I used to be chubby like you but now I am eight pounds underweight. I can't tell you how good it feels to be thin. I can't say how much better I feel not being able to eat anything much but vegetables and brown grains and sour fruit. I also have to drink tons of water because my liver is not functioning normally. At first it was almost impossible but I had no choice. I bet you could lose weight this way. I think your health would improve. I am off a lot of medications now too. I have found some interesting meals to make with veggies that taste okay. I think I told you I got a dog. It is a lot of fun to have both the dog and the cat. At first they hated each other. Now they are starting to get interested in bugging each other. I hope that things are going well with you and the family and cats. Is it spring for you yet? Ellen
Hi there, twiddle. Lots mentioned you have gout and some have suggested my swollen toe might be gout. I'll friend you and if you have time maybe you can tell me if that sounds like what I have. Thanks, Zoe.
We all have rough days. The main thing is to keep going. Do not give up. I am 86 and am having cancer surgery tomorrow. Whatever will be will be. I have enjoyed your writings. I like what Mark Twain said, I HAVE HAD A LOT OF WORRIES IN MY LIFE MOST OF WHICH NEVER HAPPENED. My best to you. Reed
