Marie-Yes, we lost power yesterday for at least 14 hours. From the time we woke up until 9:00 PM. It was really cold so we took a ride in the car with the heat on and charged the cell phone. I haven't heard anything from Ellen and all of her messages on my page are gone. That is really strange. I hope she is OK. Check your page for her messages. About 500,000 people in our 5 county area lost power and many, about 300,000 still have none. More snow is forecast for the weekend, too. Gotta run to PT. Take care. Cat

Good Morning,Marie. I am sleeping annd doing much better. Poor Russ is up half the night. The minute he puts his head on the pillow he coughs. I do not know about Lots.She said another emergency. I have her address and I will try to track down her phone number. You told me some had died. Who was that?I looked doan at Cat;s message Barbars did she have a screen name? Are you sick of snow? How is the bread business? I just was not myself for a few days there, Give my best to Ed. Hope he sells a car, Take good care, A BIG HUG,Reed

Hi Marie. I'm concerned about Ellen also. If you find out anything, please let me know. Trudy

Marie-Hard to believe it is a week since Barbara's passing. It was terribly sad, she was such vibrant person. I am glad I got to meet her in June 2012 in Philly, when I met you and Ed. She will certainly be missed around TuD. I was not aware she was so ill. I guess that was her way, not to complain.
This Winter is already too long. We got 8" yesterday, and expect an ice storm tonight. Jim and I are emptying our house of so much "stuff". I can't believe all the things we have kept thru the years.
BTW I was able to connect with Rob Muller from Roche. He said the drum test strips are NOT being discontinued, my pharmacy made a mistake telling me that they were. It is the Advantage meter's strips that are being discontinued. I promptly called the pharmacy and told them about their mistake. I can keep using the Compact-Plus.
I hope selling picks up for Ed. Perhaps when the weather improves. Take care of yourself. Cat

Hello Marie. Feeling better every day. Still cough and my sinuses. Russ was coughing so much and with his bad heart he went to the doctor all kinds of antibiotics. I feel like a caged abimal.

Good Morning,Marie. I did not have a good night. I picked up something yesterday that gave me a sore throat and head cold. I stayed in bed bid not sleep. Russ not good. Breathing heavy. He is in bed. Cold here 32 degrees and they say tonight will be about 25. This is the coldest it has been since I lived in Florida. Tom comes tonight. How are things with you? Your readings good? I was 106. Not much getting done today I am just not up to it. Take good care and give my best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

HI Marie- I don't think I told you that Jim and I are moving to a retirement community. We decided that our 8 room house was too big and took too much work to deal with, so we decided to down size to a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom apt. We are just starting the process of getting rid of "stuff" we have accumulated in the 44 years we have lived in our house. It is a big job, we do a little each day. I am still recovering from my terrible year and don't think I will ever be the same as I was before. A smaller place will be better for me.
We will, of course, take our 2 cats, as pets are permitted.
I am sitting here watching the snow come down. We are supposed to get up to 16" by tonight. Then the temp will drop to single #'s. I guess you are getting the snow and cold too. I hope you are feeling OK. My BG have been really good. Some days I don't even reach 100. My insulin needs are less too. Guess I'll go start dinner. Take care . Cat

Thank you for your words of welcome. I'm so happy to have found an online community support place for my new diagnoses. For a while there I was just lost. Already, though I have felt so welcome here on It's been a big help.

Big goings on yesterday for MMMLK he was arrested here at an old 5 and 10. How was your night? Readings? I hope you get some irders. TOPS tomorrow. The gal is finishing up on the South Pole. Take good care. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Hello Marie. I do not know what happened to me. I was up all night throwing and going. I finally dropped off after 4. Today,I still do not feel right. Bg 106. We were going out to lunch but I said NO. I would not enjoy it. I feel terrible. Chico's folks,the wife her Mother died this morning. She was 95. They kept Chicp in. Sunny and 68.

Hi Marie. Yes we are excited about a new Grandbaby. Maybe it will be another boy & we'll even the score, lol. I spent about 15 minutes writing a message in that discussion & clicked send. God knows where it went but didn't show up anywhere I can see. I'll try again when I have more time. Busy week with work & a Dr appt for my knees on Tuesday & Gyn physical & exam on Wed. Pap, Mamo & all that stuff. Hope you are well & surviving this cold winter. I am hating it. The electric bill is so high & my knees just hate the cold. Stay warm & happy.<3 <3
