Good Morning,Marie. Much better morning. We both slept great. Russ's BP was 121/73. My BG 102. Russ on his way to Beltone to see aout the hearing aid it could be plugged. Too,all the medicine they pumped into him in the hospital might have affected his hearing. I have the dentist this afternoon. The PT very good...the nurse useless. We need a homemaker. How are you ding? Did you have a good night? BG's up and down? I hope you are feeling good. My very best to Ed. Did you walk? How did your bread come out? Have you started your garden yet? Take good care of yourself. You know I care. HUGS, POPS
Hey Sweet Marie. I'm going to buy a mew ped in a few minute. I simply cannot be without it. I have a spreadsheet of my daily steps. I never set the stride length, but did discover that I put in a ton more steps to do mile on the treadmill than to do a mile on the street. I think because I'm walking faster.
Anyway, what you're supposed to do is mark a starting place and walk ten steps and mark a finish place. Measure the total distance and divide it by 10 and that's your stride.
At the store at my clinic you can buy one for $60 that comes with software and a cable to load result into a computer. Then you can print graph and chart etc. That is too much for me, and too expensive.
I have decided to not sew the curtains. I already have decorative rods, so an going to get some long bright scarves at our global market and drape them, bohemian style. I'll take a pic when they're done.
But I am also going to Joanne's today to get a disappearing pencil. I make tshirts with Bob Dylan graphics and sometimes they come out crooked so I've got to put in some gridlines. I just remembered that I didn't revere the one I printed last night and if I'd used it the letters would have been backwards. Duh......Beter get a new ink cartridge too.
Thanks Marie. I guess when I signed up I thought the whole page was OmniPod users and discovered it's not. I'm fine communicating with other pumpers but the majority of my posts will likely be questions for OmniPod users.
Hello Marie. It was a gorgeous day here. Sat put to get some sun. Russ's blood pressure is right on without BP medicines. I wonder if they will let him stay off it? Gorgeous day here. We all sat on the deck to get some sun. Russ has pt and nurse tomorrow, I have the dentist Tues.Then Wed I am re-installed as Leader of Tops. Russ has his cell phone so screwed up he cannot hear anyone...I hear them perfectly..do not know what is going on..so Much fun here at SEAGATE. What kind of a day did you and Ed have? Were your Teadings good? I hope so. I bet it was nice around the Lake. I think Winter is over. Have a good night. My best to Ed. HUFS.Reed
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
Oh yeah forgot to tell u on the day we left out I got up with a 411 bs. Adjusted it right , gave the bolus and all right??? An hour later I was down to 33 and that lasted (the lows) for 2 days while we were gone. SHEZ!!!!!
It soooo sucked!!! OK we ride in the car for almost 8 or 9 hours SOLID!! (gort to the point I DIDN'T like my husband after we wsent 1/2 way through AKS. FINALLY got there right??? For the next 3 days was more or less STUCK in my b-i-l's house (b/c nether my husband or I knew ANYTHING about where we we at . OMG Did I forget to say that we went to Tunica last night and I walked into the casino and won right off the bat 200 and then put it all and 200 more into the slots and came back broke??????? Yep leave it to me to do something stupid like that (+ the alachol I drank (tequluia) disdn't help my judgement ONE BIT!!! LOL! Fun though!!!!!!
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

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"!
