His bloodsugar is still in the 240s, and hes on the max dose of metformin. Hes actually going to the doctor some time next week. I think they are going to put him on more meds.

Thanks so much Marie, I could not figure it out and when the comment took on your page I was thankful ! I think I am starting to like some of the new changes being made to Tud. It may take me a bit to catch on but with time I will get the hang of it :)

Hi Marie, You can send the snow to us. We have had none and I like snow. The day before yesterday it was 60! It was like spring but now freezing and gray. I was so sad about Reed being gone that I thought about him all the time. I am so glad he is keeping abreast of what is going on. I hope he gets better. We just have to keep praying. I am glad he trusts our support. Take care.

Hey Marie :)

Sorry about the other day when I popped into chat, said hi and then left again super suddenly. I did see your request for an update, and so I'm honoring that request through this wall post.

Basically, I'm now in the second semester of my freshman year of college! I decided on Emroy University, and I'm on a pre-med track. My intended major is Neuroscience and behavioral biology with a minor in Japanese (which is nowhere near as hard as it might sound lol).

All in all, everything is going pretty well. BG's have been higher than normal, but that's to be expected, right? High school to college is a HUGE transition. Lots of stress.

Anyways, how have you been? Your turn to update me :33

Hi Marie,
I hope all is well and this winter is treating u ok.
We had snow last night but it all melted by lunch time lol, Nura was so excited even though she couldn't play in it with having a cold and
I am now 34 weeks and all is well baby is growing well she's not a large baby as these ppl keep going on about diabetics and big babies, I wish u could have seen one of the scanners faces when she saw that my baby was on point after going on about diabetic ladies having large babies, I had a cheeky little giggle to myself. I just love it when they make judgement and it back

Just wanted to update u dear friend. Xxx

Hi Marie, How is your shoveling going? We haven't had much snow at all this year but it is cold. We have sun today so I am going to try to get out with the dog today. Have you heard from Reed? I am worried about him. I have a new cat. He looks just like Zen only huskier. He is cute. I am cleaning my carpet, got a new steam cleaner so it should be more fun than usual. I love the smell of clean carpet. Ammi is getting a bit chubby. He is on a diet. I am sorry but I haven't walked him much in the cold. He plays in the backyard but needs some walking just like me to stay healthy.

Thanks so much for your wishes. I plan on having a great day and I'm going to go out to a seafood restaurant tonight. We hardly ever eat out.

Hi Marie! Yes, I heard the news! Lots is changing here... I regret that I did not remain more active on TuD. I stay active in the OhBaby group. So I try to check in there once a week.

Lots has changed here too!! Our daughter was born on December 27. So we are now a family of four. :) We are all doing well and she is just a delight!

How are you??? Send an update when you have time!!!

Hey…just a quick update…I had a work weekend, so my time was limited. I have a draft of the email to be sent about the lobbying…I amm not quit done with the content before I start wordsmithing it withthe correct language…but I hope to have it ready soon.

With that being said , I am meeting with the MAG lobbyist (Medical Assoc of Ga) today for an inforaml discussion before I start meeting formally with groups that hopefully can get this in a committee to get it on the floor for the a vote.

Hi Marie, thank you for your warm welcome! It has been great and helpful to stay connected with people here since no one around me ever has T1D and knows much about it.
