Hi Marie, Thanks so much for your kind words of welcome. I have been frantic for the past week as I've begun realizing the probability that I have LADA. I am 67, not obese (though I've been plump at times), and had Graves Disease (thyroid autoimmune) that resulted in a complete removal of my thyroid at age 40. I'm also definitely not insulin resistance according to a very complete set of tests that were done a couple of months ago. I've been VERY low carbing it for 3 months, and before that was moderate carbs, but had never given myself a "glucose tolerance" challenge until last week. I read Dr. Bernstein's book and picked up a free kit at the drugstore, and was I shocked to see that even with almost ZERO carbs my glucose shot up over 200 (at one hour) when I ate a blueberry muffin, and only sank back to 140 at 2 hours. That has really shaken me up. Any insights would be appreciated, but I do have that appointment later this week, and will let you know what happens.
Good Morning,Marie. Russ looked much better. Still having brething respiration. He is on oxygen. Get this...they are giving him insulin...is is diabetic?? We will visit after Mass.I did the Welcomes will try to do Birthdays. Did you SPRING AHEAD? Hope you have a good night and good readings. My BG 104. My best to Ed. Hygs,Reed
Good Morning,Marie. I was sleeping and Tom came down and tapped me. I am taking Russ to the ER. He cannot breathe. It must be bad for Russ to be willing to go to ER. I am just about awake. Really shook up. I will get back to you. He has been looking terrible, Hope all is well with you. HUGS,Reed
Hi Marie. That was a great link. Of course, here in the core city we can see no constellations, so that's why the one brilliant planet really stood out. Last night were were supposed to have a chance to see the northern lights, but it was too cloudy.
I went to the fabric store today and Simplicity patterns were all $1.99 and I found one I sort of like (for curtains) but then could find no fabric. They had lots of glitzy chiffon and tulle and satin for making prom dresses. And also bolts and bolts of fleece for making those two layer blankets that you tie on the edges.
Then I thought I should make a colorful shower curtain, to use with a plain liner from the dollar store, but, of course, had no measurements and didn't want to guess, nor to walk 4 blocks to Target to get the dimensions off a package.
I guess I might be itching to sew something, but I think the cutting will be really hard on my wrists
Have a good weekend, Marie.
Marie. Very well written concise and informative. There were things I did not know. You know me ever vigilant. I do report things. I even send a birthday if the last time here was 2009. Tom just called. He is on his way. Lent fish on Friday so he will have to take me to the fish market later. 73 here but dreary. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed
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
