Hello Marie. Busy day. TOPS Legal work but I did the W's. Dark dreasry rain here. Russ slept through the night. No getting up to wander. As a result,I had a good night. Then he polished furniture put out some antique decorations that go with the season. PROGRESS. I hope it continues. My last BG 104. Good news Tom called his Dean is recommending him for a full professorship. He is on Cloud 9. Did you have Guild today? How is Ed? Thank God my co;d did not mature like Russ's. Have a very good night. HUGS,Reed

Hi, and thanks to everyone's warm
Welcome. And to Marie B. for kind word
On my needle art. I will post more in
The near future. I've been immersed
In my management of type1 for the last
Two weeks, And have made extensive graphs
And curves on paper, but most doctors
Won't take the time to go over it. So
I'm left to figure this out on my own.
I am getting some really good insight from
This website. Reading the forums blog and such.
Really helpful.

Hey....morning Marie!
It's all fine now. It all happened as I left the chat yesterday, or while I was away from I was on before. But I know that the video sound track was all squeaky and jittery, and the video itself would come on and off. So perhaps connected to that...I don't know. At any rate, when I came back to the chat, perhaps an hour or 2 later, the bar in green that normally reads "Members Online", only showed "Disconnected". Had I known then that all I had to do was click on the bar....I would have, but when I went over it with my mouse, the pointing arrow never silly me did not click! I refreshed, rebooted, went to settings, tried to check through other ways...Nada! Then I guess I got a moment of wisdom....maybe my IQ suddenly jumped a few points due to a sun flare or whatever....I went in and clicked on the bar that read "Disconnected".....and there was light!!! SHEESH!!!
I even thought....oh chat....I PERSONALLY suddenly felt disconnected!! There....if that's not an add for promoting the chat, I don't know what is lol!!
Thanks for checking on me again Marie...the caring person that you are ♥
Hope you are well. I'm going back to school Monday. Lord knows I dontwanna!! Think we might have Mason over for a sleep over today. Little peanut. Also need to go out today to buy little thank you cards for the children who got me something. Technically, I guess I should get a little card for ALL my students, not to make any of them feel left out,
with a message in the other cards in the line of...thank you for being such a nice student or whatever...but gets costly....I have over 85 students. Also have to get groceries today....the Christmas holiday stock is depleted, and I'm getting sick of the casserole I made with the left over turkey. Think I'll freeze the rest!!
It's a bright and sunny day here...50F. Simply glorious!! If I were the skier I used to be, I would be on the slopes right now!!
Have an AWESOME day....
luv and baskets of hugs,

Good Morning,Marie. I saw the nose. It looks great. Still has stitches out Wed and a bit swollen. It was started 12/3 and finished 1/3. Tom ran and I got him his breakfast. He and Russ untrimming the tree.A big moving truck went by the house stopped at 237 has been on the market 3 years. I am fighting hard to keep the cold away from me. The druggist gave me some sugar free cough syruo. Tom's Office at UF was remodeled. He brought his big rug out here to clean on the deck. I ate Chines chicken lollipops. I love them. BG 112. How was your night? Readings good? Give my very best to Ed. Instead of just taking the tree to the street they cut off all the branches and put in a big black bag..neat fuys. Take care, HUGS,Reed

Been up since 5. I am getting the cold. I do not know how I could escape it. Russ is still coughing his head off. When Tom comes back from Government House he will take the bandage off and clean it with Peroxide and a salve. He can keep the bandage off in the house but if he goes out a band aid. BG 104. Yoyrs are up and down. I hope you find your Mother's ebvelope. I told you what I was going to doabout the house. Opened the safe found the deed plus 2 locked boxes. Where are the keys to them. We turned the house upside down no keys. Russ was sitting got up went to an Indian basket a friend made for me and there they were. CLICK TAXES I need to pay my quarterly taxes. It is dark and dreary but warm. Give my very best to Ed. Have a good day. HUGS,Reed

Russ was there over 2 hours >They cut off the flap reconstructed the nose Tom was in the room with him and said good job. I cannot see as his face is all bandaged. Lot of stitches. Put him on CIPRO for 7 days. He goes back on Wed. Glad your Mother is out of the hospital. Why does she act like that?. Raining here. I am tired. Cough seems to be leaving. I hope it is not another 5AM morning. HUGS,Reed

Hi Marie. Got my meds today. Insulin pens, Glucose monitor, needles and more needles, ketone strips, diabetes booklets and lots of support. I am not sure about my feelings right now. Been put on 2 injections of slow acting insulin a day. One before breakfast and one before dinner (6 units).

Good Morning,Marie. Warm and raiuny here. Been up since 5. Russ sees the surgeon at 11. He is nervous. I sure do hope they finish it this morning and I hope he does not come out looking like Wallace Berry. My BG 104. I hope you had a nice night and your Readings were good/ O saw it is 8 degrees in Boston.Did the nuts go ice fishing? I really will be glad when Russ is done I hate getting up at 4 and 5. He tends to be a baby when he is not feeling well. Any news at all about your Mother? Is she still in the hospital? I need to get to the lawtyer and do the thing I told you about. Give my best to Ed. I will let you know how Russ makes out. Take care. HUGS,Reed

Thinking of you Marie! We had a great Christmas here having our grandson living with us! It was sad to see it end! Jon was sick most the time during the holidays. Today he was back to work. Alex goes back to school next week. He will be having testing done. I know he hasn't been doing good in several subjects in school,but found out they haven't been able to give him the one on one instruction that he needs. Its been great being able to relax with the holiday, and will be hard next week getting back into the routine.

Hi Marie. thank you for the very warm welcome. I have not started on insulin yet. The nurse called and said that after reading my blood test results, the reading is not enough to confirm what diabetes I have and IF I even have it. I'm going to the clinic today for further blood tests which then determine how much medication I need. I still don't know if I have type 1 or 2. it's most likely that I am a type 1. :)

Good Morning,Marie. Another one of those nights of coughing. He has Mucinex and a prescription cough syrup but still he coughs. Woke me at 4 but I stayed in bed until 5. My BG 106. How were your Readings and night? I hope good. TOPS today. I bet there will be a lot of gains. It will be a Rap session. House mostly undecorated. Just the live tree left. I hope this coughing does not make them postpone Russ's surgery tomorrow. Tom is coming back tonight to take him and will stay until late Sunday so I better do some menu planning. On the wat home from TOPS I have to stop at drugstore to get some medications. Florida plays in the SUGAR BOWL tonight so we MUST watch that. How is Ed? Give him my best. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. Russ's cold seems to be better. Tom is here and caters to him. Right now Tom is at the Gym. I have a pot roast going in my slow cooker. I have only used it 2 times before. The food comes out great so I am going to use it more. BG 110. Did you have a good night? I hope your Readings were good and not all over the place. I doubt we will wait to see the ball drop as tomorrow is a Holy Day of Obligation and we will go to the 9AM Mass. How is Ed give him my best. How much snow did you get? I bet it was pretty around the lake. Happy New year to you and ED. I hope the year 2013 will be a good year for us all. HUGS,POPS

Thanks for the spice link Marie. I am starting to make my own rubs and need a good source for bulk spices. All the various peppers are intriguing. My late wife was a New Mexican cooking aficionado and we used to special order various varieties of chilies and grow them in our garden. Have a wonderful new year!
