Hi Marie! I'm doing okay. Had my first real bad dialysis session yesterday. Had a lot of cramps then my blood clotted and it stopped the machine. I was in the chair for an extra 30 minutes. It was the most uncomfortable chair too. That might have been what caused the cramps.

Either way I survived!!!

Praying for y'all.

HI Marie- Are you getting ready for the meet-up on Sunday ? I see where Emily Coles isn't coming. There are quite a few people signed up to come, also the weather is supposed to be dry and kind of warm. I hope I feel OK on Sunday. I have been having some trouble with my walking lately. I have a doc's appt. this afternoon, will get my labs done then. It is just my PCP. Hope you are feeling OK, have your BG #'s calmed down ? Mine have been on a roller coaster of late, my A1c will probably be higher than last time. We will see ! Take care. Cat

Hi Marie. Just dropping in to say hello. My Online banking all fouled up got that fixed. Russ got the tv scewed up fixed that so this has been my morning. I slept so/so. BG 102. Russ goes to the doctor this morning. He had better have the results of the Cat Scan. He seems to be doing better if I can judge from the lack of moaning. It got up to 96 yesterday. How was your night? Your readings? You relaxing? I hope so. Give my very best to Ed. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie, thanks for the information, I've been away a long time and then some things are different - no worries, I can put up new pictures, and btw I had no business being in the welcome committee, I haven't been around much with all that's going on (too much to do, too little time)

=) I rarely put my real birthday in a database, but it's October, and thank you!

haha well I told the project manager that if needed I could try the product and tell them if it's insulin or bad water ;-) it would speed up qualification anyway. if we were going to make analog lispro it would be worth it ($$$$)! anyway once it's validated there'll be a generic for an otherwise expensive insulin on the market and I find it poetic in some way. thanks again for the note and It's great to hear from you!

Good Morning,Marie. Been busy trying to find an internist./cardiologist who is in Russ's network. The current water is useless. I went to him,too,and he is useless. My night was so/so. I had a Dairy Queen BG 112. We rode all around yesterday looking at lakes and a few other sights. Russ is doing better still uses the walker. I am trying to wean him off it. Going to be a hot the 90's. Did you have a good night? And how were your readings? Give my very best to Ed. I am very depressed about Russ. He \has all the tests than you have to find to get the results. If you take COUMADAB t prevent a stroke is it wise to be off it for 8 days?All the news from here. I just read the is going to be the hottest day of the year. Take care. I care. HUGS,Reed

Good afternoon,Marie. I have not heard from you. Are you ok? I know you said you were taking Hune off and had a few things planned. Would you prefer I stop my messages until you get back. No report on Russ's Cat Scan. His leg and foot swollen so he has been elevating it. 90 degrees here. Going to the meat market. Did my other grocery shopping this morning. BG 108. Hope your readings are gppd. My best to Ed. Huhs,Reed

Hi Marie, thanks for the note. Yes, busy, kids, everything. Especially with the youngest (6 1/2 months!!) now fighting his fourth ear infection, and me fighting to give him antibiotics, it's tough! Hope you're doing well.
