Marie, thank you! Now joined. The endo thing...it is very low pressure. I have a recommendation fron coworkers and i'll probably get one or more from my internist. I just thought I should ask people here on general principles, so please don't make extra effort just for me if you don't already know one--you are obviously already doing a lot--I'll be asking on the Great Lakes group. --zzyzx
Yes, I am very interested in getting my 50-year Joslin medal. My diabetes doc has made no effort to get me the form I need. Where should I start? She mentioned I need an official document stating when I was first diagnosed.
Marie,thank you soooo much for helping us find my daughters account yesterday ! I can't tell you how excited I was when she sat down by me and I pointed out people and told her she could say hi and use my computer...I am going to pm you later today about it.I told her if we don't find your account and have you sign in soon,people will think I have gone bonkers,ha :)
Hi Marie B,
I feel like I have wrote to you in like for ever, how are you doing?
Nura is such a little madam now. She's walking,talking and a little drama queen we have also figured out how to use a potty so use nappies only during sleep I also take her to nursery for 3 hours a day and she loves it.
I could go on all day but I should stop, I am doing ok handling diabetes and daily life my last check all normal.
Good Morning, dear Marie. Thanks so much for the tips about walnut oil. I will go look for some today, now that I am driving.( Praise God!!) And thanks again for being so supportive and complimentary. You are an inspiring, compassionate woman who always "pays it forward"! I hope I can continue to emulate both your attitude as well as your actions. God bless You!!
Marie, Thanks for the birthday wishes. I appreciate the kind thoughts. I am enjoying having my daughter here for a few days. She is looking thru the things and pics we are getting rid of to see if she wants anything. Any word on Reed's progress ? Take care. Cat
Thank you for such a warm welcome. My son was recently diagnosis (March 25th of this year) with Type 1 and we are still learning about what all this means, really. I can tell this site is going to be very beneficial to us.
Thanks for the thought regarding helping me set up my bird feeders. I just have to try to convince a neighbor to help me. Sometimes he offers to help me with things, other times not. Anyway, eventually I will get them set back up.
Unfortunately, left out the lawn furniture over the winter, and they have fallen apart now, so... not much real use for me to put up the feeders, except that I expect the birds are just waiting, they have been fed by me for the past 10 years or so... lots and lots of bird seed, and lots of Thistle seed for the Goldfinches... they are so beautiful, especially when there are 10 or 12 of them flitting back and forth from the crab apple tree and the thistle feeder they love so much.
Marie-So sorry to hear about Reed's fall and broken hip. I hope he heals properly, considering his age. I will pray for him and keep him in my thoughts. That was very nice of Tom to keep us informed. I will, of course, send him a card. Hope you are doing OK. Have a good week. Cat
Well in my parents youth and when I was young. Few had alarm clocks. So they paid the 'Knocker Upper', might be a penny a week. He walked down all the streets (Every Knocker Upper) had their own area!! The carried a 12' pole with a small leather pad (home assembled) and tapped on folks bedroom windows between 5 and 7 am to wake them! Our house was 3 floors above the street and he could only reach 1st floor. (it was a long road with a hundred families in it!So first family up shouted to the next floor and then the next ha ha! Things were very sociable in those days. We had to learn from childhood no matter what went on we never heard the neighbours!! except for wake up calls :-)
We also had the 'Lamp Lighter' who rode a bicycle and carried a 9' pole and switched on/off the streets gas lights! The milk man pushed his milk cart until he could afford a horse. Fresh mild daily to the door. Children all got 1/2 pint milk free in school every day! No one had a garage so the street was where we made roller skate from old roller bearings and bits of wood and string. Go Carts from fruit boxex, discarded lumber, nails and baby carriage wheels and axels! The roads we our playground! Life was simpler then! WE also used our voices and hand writing to communicate hahaha! Now guess which 14 year old lad is me?
