I'm not the surest on the different types of tomatoes either. I know that my family always liked the beef ones I really don't know any more about what they are called or anything like that. It's just what my family has (and friends of the family) grown for years.

I hope their vacation went better than mine. On the 1st day b/f we left out I got up with a 411 bs. So I bolus and stuff right???? The rest of the day it kept falling low. Got to my b-i-l's I kept checking it. (never got above 50) and was trying my best to be discreat about it, eating this & that to get it higher. Soooo we're all settig around in the livingroom and here the last time I checked my bs it was 46 so I started drinkingsome "real" coke to bring it up (still being quiet about the falling bs's) my b-i-l's girlfriend looks at me & ask "are u ok???" U look white and cold. (sign of going low for me. My husband starts acting like God. Dothis , do that. (Ugh I've done it all day SHUT UP!!) She's freaking out & so is my b-i-l along with my hubby. Gosh was so glad to get it up FINALLY & go to sleep!!!

HAPPY ST, PATRICK'S DAY,Marie and ed. Did yuu have a good night. Idid. BG 102. Russ much better doing his exercises. Blood pressure back to normal. A nurse is supposed to come today. I wonder if she remembers it is Saturday. Tonight we are driving to Ormond Beach for dinner at STONEWOOD. Tom is kind of nervous he has to do the Readings tomorrow at Mass at the Cathedral. He will do ok. I am glad you did some fabric shopping. Do you ever do clothes? I cannot even sew a button I am all thumbs. Have a good day. Walk around the lake. Give Ed my best. Going grocery shopping. HUGS,POPS

Not yet. More tests next week. At least I feel good about this endo office. The P.A. spent 2 hours with me, as I have both thyroid and diabetic issues, and she was very supportive. Will see the doc next week for first time. Kind of a strange way of doing things, but I'm not going to question. Thanks for asking!

See I usually give K a REAL HARD time about his gambeling and I felt soooooo bad when the tequlia started talking and there I was gambeling like crazy. WE couldn't afford it either oh well lesson learned! LOL! He told me that if he had done that I would have thrown his clothes out and told him to go live somewhere else. Well True I would have. But it was me this time sooo my clothes was going to stay in the house!!! LOL!

Have fun today! I'll probably start the CT welcomes back up sometime today.

Good Morning,Marie. Florence Nightingale on duty making syure Russ does what he is supposted to. His BP 132.78 so that is going up. Much better than 89/36. Tom made a chart of morning pills noon pills night pills. Next 2 events the growth I think that is done with a laser scope. Then on 3/22 he sees about the blocked artery. My BG 108. I hope things are better with you paddle aroud the lake singing Moonlight Bay. How did your bread come out? Fish tonight. I gave Tom a list of a few things to pick up on his way over. Does Ed qualify for that extended unemployment benefit? I got my taxes have to pay $500 more even though I pay estimated taxes. Have a good day and hope your readings stay good. BIKE WEEK here what a racket. My best to Ed. Hugs,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. All three of us slept like logs. All this very tiring. Just took Russ's BP 102/60 going up. My BG 102. This morning,Russ goes to the urologist to check on that growth on his adrenal gland. I hope he says leave it alone. Or if something has to be done it can be done with a scope. Did you have a good night? I hope so. I hope yur readings are not all over the place. Tom has to go home today as he has evaluations to write and annual reports. My very best to Ed. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed

Thank you so much for the warm welcome! I am loving this site. I live in a very isolated place, with no other diabetics, and I'm just now seeing how many different ideas and sources of information there are out there!

It's so cool that you make your own bread-- I've always wanted to try but didn't really know how to go about it. And yessssss yesyesyes i would LOVE that link, the only vegan things i know how to make are vegan cupcakes :)

Hello Marie. He had Coumadan test still high doctor will call me. He just about can walk. He has no energy. His Blood Pressure 83/51. I called doctor.

Sorry to be loading on you with all this news. I said wouldn't you like to go to Rehab to get help for a few days? NO NO. So I plod on. HUGS,Reed

Good morning - thank you for the welcome! You asked if I'd used emla cream .. I haven't, although it has been recently suggested to me. It's not so much that it "hurts" - it's just a mind game. (Ok yea it does hurt a bit .. but it's over as soon as it goes in) ;) Thanks again! Hope to "see you around"!

At 6:29am on March 14, 2012, SEAGATOR said…

Good Morning,Marie. In the hospital yesterday Russell looked great. Home no energy dragging it is his legs. I hope the physical therapists will help. His Coumadan was 3,6 should be 2.2. In the hospital they musc have been giving him too much. He goes to the PCP this morning to get re-tested. After Tom has to go home as his annual reports are due. My BG 104, How are you doing? Did you get through the night ok? I hope your readings are good,. It sounded like a very pretty ride to your Guild meeting. Give my best to Ed. You both are in my thoughts and prayers. HUGS,Reed

He actually has one. Unfortunately he sleeps through it when it goes off. I know we will get through this. It just gets very stressful at times. Every spring we start having more pproblems getting his BG in control. I'm just scared one of these times I won't be there to bring him back around. He has an appointment tomorrow with his Diabetic Educator; that should help. Thanks for listening though.

Hi Marie. Thanks for the link. I am thinking about just making buttonholes for the hooks. Trev could punch the grommets for me if I went that route.
Yes I have a rotary cutter but no idea where the mat is. Duh. I am just too freakin' bored.
But then I recalled the library has free classes on using the computer for genealogy research, but they are always held on Wed and I had dialysis. But now I can go.

Good Morning,Marie. How are things with you? I am tired and weary. If the two doctors agree Russ might come home today BY if will need pt and a respitory therapist. I hope they come to the house. Yesterday,he had a test I never heard of nuclear test of his heart. My BG high 118 as I have not been as careful as I should. Tom still here. I hope your readings are good and you feel better. Sorry I have been neglectful but a lot going on. My best to Ed. I do do the W's and B's every day. Take care. HUGS,Reed

Just saying hi and that I'm thinking about you!

We are doing fine. I went to my endo this week and my A1c came back at 6.5, which was a pleasant surprise, as I didn't think my numbers have been very good (and I haven't been measuring too much). My endo was happy about it too. A is not sleeping well -- so we are all exhausted, but he is pulling himself up to stand and is pure joy during the day. He really has more energy than either of his parents ;)

The Arcadia Lake area is really changing! You probably wouldn't recognize it now. It sounds like moving into a big house with 2 people is like the movie "Money Pit" LOL I always enjoyed visiting with Painton, he'd look at my A1C, cholestorol, blooo pressure, ask how I was feeling and then we'd talk about golf stuff, equipment, trips etc. I hated to see him go. Abducted by guys have a great sense of humor! Have a great day!
