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.

Hi Marie- I am so glad that you and Ed will be able to attend the meet-up. I am really looking forward to it, I hope the weather isn't rainy or too hot. This past weekend, we had no computer. Not being tech savvy, we couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. Yesterday, our tech geek finally called, and he figured out, by going inside our computer with a special program, that the mouse was kaput. We had a wireless mouse and apparently they don't last too long. Anyway, we are back using the wired mouse. We got so behind in our email and me on TuD, that's why I haven't been welcoming anybody yet this week. I will try to get back on track by the weekend. I am anxious to hear Gary Scheiner on Friday. I saw him in person at a local D expo a couple of weeks after I was Dx, that was back in 1999. I will look for you at the webchat. Cat
