Good Morning,Marie. While in my mind...REMINDER we SPRING AHEAD Saturday night. Seems early. We both had good nights but Russ did say I wish I had more ZIP in the morning. My BG 102. I hope you had a good night and your readings are all over the place. With Ed's situation you must be stressed out. I pray the Rosary and am so mad my prayers are not being answered. I think this stress is causing your erratic numbers. I have the dentist at 10L45.I hope he finds nothing. I see they moved our photos back. Any plans for today? Tell Ed I am thinking about him and hoping. Try to have a good day. Take care. HUGS, POPS

Good Morning,Marie. I see on the birthdays they moved our photos to the middle. I did not sleep too well. Russ very concerned about wheter he will need 2 operation. They changed the order from a Cat Scan to an MRI. He has it on Friday. I hope the growth not serious. Someone just reminded me we change our clocks ahead Sat night. That seems early. Did you have a good night? I sure do hope so. Were your readings all over the place? My BG was 102. All packed up and will leave soon for Tops. My very best to Ed. I hate to see you depressed. I wish there were a Happy Magic Bullet I could send yu. Take good care. I care. HUGS,PPS

Good Morning,Marie. The Bug Man is here what a talker. It is a necessity in Florida with the dampness and humidity. I never see a bug. He comes 2x a year better be safe than sorry. Something caught up to me my BG 118. TOPS tomorrow. First meeting of the month. Because the church is so good to us they charge $50 a month for 4 rooms. We all bring something for thir food pantry. I am taking a big bottle of Ragu and pasta. Elections too. I do not want a 5th term but I bet I get it. It is a nice outlet for you to have Quilts of Valor and you enjoy it. They are on the phone with Russ now setting up the Cat Scan repeat.Insurance never heard of his request.order. What a mess. I hope they work it out. My best to Ed..does he have any leads. Have a good day.HUGS,Reed

Thank you so much Marie B for acknowledging me and for the warm welcome!! I will most certainly ask questions, after all that's the only way you learn.

Thanks, Marie. I may just join the diabetes/celiac group. I don't have any particular problem with either one. Low blood sugar is the worst thing that's happened to me over the years. Celiac disease or CD is generally genetic, but I got a bad case of infectious hepatitis in 1966 & turned yellow on the way back from the Viet-Nam conflict & had to stay in this FT Dix Army hospital for 4 months because my wife is from N.J. The airlines were on strike in July of 1966 so we managed to rent a car in Frisko & 4 of us drove it to NY & all we had to do was put in gas as they wanted the car returned.

Good Morning,Marie. It is a bit chilly here 43 degrees. Tom is off to the GYM then haircuts. I am a little down today. I do not know why. Woke up at 3. BG 106. I keep thinking we should be in a nice apartment and let the landlord take care of things get rid of taxes. But,then again,it is comfortakle here. Did you sleep through the night? Hope Your BG;s are good. I get concerned about you. Por Ed been out so long. Anything like that causes depression. I know in my heart if you believe things will turn around. Take good care. I care, My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Must be in the stars. I haven't had the best one either. I think ppl are going to get tired of me always complaining but I just want K to get better and for the 30th to get here. I soooo hate the anogy of waiting.

Good Afternoon,Marie. I am keeping my eye on the palm trees. It is chilly and blowing a gale here. Tom had to meet with A Dr, Adams,a historian,who lives in GA. He was a big shot in St.Augustine before he retired. Tom does this on his own time. He thinks it gets his name around. He will stay tonight we three will get haircuts in the morning and,then,he will go home. That Jason at Bette's I think doubled our order as we brought it home and had it for lunch. How are you feeling? I hope not down. My best to Ed. I hope Doris did not get hit from the storm they kept saying TB, Have a good rest of the day. HUGS,Reed
