I am sorry for your fathers failing health. I took care of both of my parents too and was a caretaker for them in the last years. They took care of you and now you take care of them. Thats how it works. Thinking of you in these tough times

Hi Marie- I just had time to check in at the site for a minute. I have been at the hospital because my mother had a stroke on Tues. afternoon. She is now on hospice care and it is just a matter of not too much time until she passes. If you can relay the info to the usual people, Doris, Wendy,Robyn, I would appreciate it. I may not be on for a while. Thanks. I hope things are OK with your Dad and you. Cat

How are things Marie? Are you having a good summer so far? I live in Minnesota and we have had some nice weather but some bad storms too.

I see you have been very busy on the web site as always. Hope the D is treating you well. Finally got my numbers under control with Victoza and am having good results and good A1-c's. Take care. Just thought I would say hello

Of course I want to get the blonde in mine before the gray comes out! LOL! My main problem (I noticed it in my 30's) was my eyebrows trun gray the fastest so I just have very little eyebrow now! LOL!

Oh honey. I know what it's like when you get to this point in life! You almost (notice I said ALMOST) feel like giving up. I did yesterday thanks to my dumb self! I know that the stress your living through right now is the main factor in all of this. It's really nice that your dad approved of his ob before he passed that will help you knowing that he liked it and you done something and he approved of it when it does happen. I wish these folks around here approved of SOMETHING I do but there's no making any of them happy right now! Sorry but feeling sorry for myself again. Now on to better things......................... How's Ed doing? I know you will feel better talking about him today.

Hi! You asked about my home craft business. I make bandanas for pets ( I don't have any inventory in my online store right now, but the link gives you an idea of what I do.

Oh I'm dragging tail today but now I'm down to 250! It will just take sometime. Good idea your dad has there about donating to that cause! I'm glad they are trying for a cure! Bless you honey I know how much you got going on and how hard it is. Funny excited about 250 bs! Feel so much better than I did when I first got up! Your so right about your dad giving you Type 1. It's NOT his fault but right now all you can do is let him say he's going to ask God when he gets to him. If that's his thoughts right now then I hate to say it but you will just have to let him ask Him. All the talking you do won't get through to him. BLESS YOU!

I always thought that about Calf too but I just can't wrap my head around wool suits in August! LOL! Down here you can't get folks to ware wool in January! LOL!
