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

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.

no marie, your not bad. i know that if you had your choice you wouldn't have your dad go at all. trouble is things happen when they will not when we want them to. i know that no matter what you will handle it with grace and exceptance and ed will be there for you every step of the way. just relax and enjoy yourself in nyc. you'll be needed soon enough. one day, one step at a time. just like with D

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!

You sent me that pic before. Your a beatiful teen there and that quilt is so pretty! I know there all around here but oh well. I'm so sorry that it's that far in an airplane to get to your sister. I know you guys don't get along but right now is a time to pull together for your dad. Now lesson to me I can't do that so why am I giving you that advice? LOL! I just get upset sometimes and don't think about what I'm saying. Good for you w/ chas (?) You know who I'm talking about. I just couldn't think of anything real positive to say said a little then pmed Robyn. Sorry if I came off bad this morning but one of those mornings ya know.. Some how over night my pump got pulled out and was sleeping for awhile w/o it bs now#511! Already a bad day and it's soooo hot here!!!!!! I'm moving to Portland like Judith!!! LOL!

Oh Marie, I know how you feel. Finally got Becky (my dad's wife) off to herself yesterday and got some REALLY bad news. More or less be ready at anytime for something to happen to him. His cancer in his kidney duck near his liver is growing by the day and their a vein there that when it eats through that it's the end. Atleast you have brother and a sister there to help w/your dad. I feel so alone in this fight b/c we all know I'm the only one here. Did that sound selfish? But sorry to say right now that's how I feel. Did you catch the blog New here by crisate(?) she's only 19 and having trouble right now. She's had D since 3. It helps me to help other's out when I'm having my own trouble. I pm Robyn b/c I knew my feelings were to upset and had her leave a message on her blog. I knew she could do it! Robyn took alot and said it in a good way!

almost forgot to tell you. i was a a crafters show this week-end and a man had hand crafted wooden things like pens and pencils and small things like that. he makes a toothpick holder ( the kind that our dads use to carry around with them) and his wife was telling me that quilters buy them to carry their needles in. i didn't have the cash on me at the time but i will be seeing him again later this summer and i plan on buying a couple of them. one for me and one for you. so don't be surprised if you get a package later this summer from me. they are so cool an unique.

hi marie,
i saw on sohair's page that you aren't doing so well. it's always the senstive ones who hurt the most. at least on the outside. remember that even though your brother and sister seem to shut out your mom that on the inside they may be hurting as bad as you. they just don't (or can't) show it. i come from upper new england where my grandmother's legacy to me was to not show your feelings and keep that stiff upper lip. sometimes it helps but mostly it's not so good. i have learned over the years to not be so ridged but sometimes i catch myself keeping in a lot of stuff that i shouldn't. then i caught myself the other day doing something i swore i would never do. if my m-i-l wants a family gathering she will basiclly make it a command. this is what we are going to do even if we don't want to. i wanted my family together on the 4th at a local fun spot and was upset when my daghter said her husband wanted to sell at the flea market. i went ballistic and didn't realize what i was saying until after i got home and cooled down. now i have to appoligize. humble pie sucks.
i hope your mom can get a handle on things. she must be going through a very difficult time and she needs all of you. we all handle pain and grief differently and we never know in what form it will take until it actually happens. be patient with her and give her some leeway, but if you need to, then as a family, sit down with her and see what she needs from all of you to help her through this difficult time. sometimes just a small gesture like that will help her feel not so alone and scared.
listen to me giving advice when my own life sucks. lol. but sometimes it's easier to figure out something when your not so emotionally involved.
take care sweet lady and remember tht you have a lot of friends who would love to help you carry your burdens if they get too heavy for you.
