Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. Feels like a 50 pound weight has been lifted from my shoulders. That was a big drop in the PSA. December assignments are out. Tom has to serve on Christmas Day. I will go with him. Nice and cool here and the sun is out. BG 102. How are things with you? You still have orders to fill? Imagine you will get real busy as we head into Christmas. How is Ed? Give him my best. Big car sales here butI do not know if anyone buying. I heard from Kristin. Another name I do not see Gerry? Taking up a special collection Sunday for the Phillipines. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Oh Marie, I just LOVED The video. It was so cute. I watched the entire song on allthe channels. Thanks for thinking of me!!
I also checked out the recipe. Will have to try it. I made these weired bbq apple chips where you slice an apple and dip them in a curry type mixture. I think I let them bake too long because they were just awful. Plus, I am afraid of my mandolin. I swear I'll cut myself one day or another.
Also, thanks for the needle tip for the sewing machine. I was buying my needles at the dollar store, so I guess I won't be doing that again. I put the machine away for a bit because the dress was pretty tedious.
Getting a bit chilly here, with a chance of snow. I hate the early darkness. After being lasered 10 years ago I don't see so hot in the dark. In my own neighborhood It's fine, but new places intimidate me. I sure don't need to be stepping of a curb that I'm unaware of.
I think Jane, Esther and I are going to my hometown for Thanksgiving, to be with my aunt & uncle. They are both in rapidly declining health so I think this will be the last holiday season they're in their lake home. Both my sister and I are willing to bring large several components of the mean, but, no, they are stubborn and want to do it all on their own.
I saw your loaf on Reed's page - looked just gorgeous. You are going to make a name for yourself, sister!!

Good Morning,Marie. Dark dreary damp and I am sure it will rain. Tom off to Gym then work. He is running a half Maraton Sunday. I cannot run to the door.

Hi Marie,
thank you for the warm welcome. I am enjoying the web page, blogs and forums. With this being a new dx for my son, it is a lot to take in.

Hi Marie-I had to share my terrific D news with my TuD friends on this D
Day. I got the results back from my recent lab tests and my A1c dropped from 7.5 to 6.3. I saw my PCP doc who took care of me while I was in the hospital. He was really impressed with the new number. I told him it wasn't too hard if you watched yourself. I have been very careful, watching what I eat really closely and it paid off. I will continue to watch. I hope you are feeling well. I see where you are "baking away." I hope Ed sells more cars before too long. If I lived closer I would send him some business. Hope you have a nice weekend. Cat

Hey Marie, thanks for the information. I visited my doctor and he showed c-peptide test results and another tests results. Both results were normal, he told me that my body is producing insulin normally and it is also being used normally. So he has told me to drop my insulin dosage gradually to zero in next 15 days. So he thinks I was wrongly diagnosed of type 1. He told me keep BG below 126 in morning and 180 in evening time ( I have not crossed 120 in last 2 months). Please give your opinion.

Hello Marie. Keeping up with the W's but that is all. Tom has us working. Clipping branches .I bag. Weeded I bag. Did a4 loads of laundry getting ready for Winter putting summer stuff away. I just heard Thursday we will see a 30 degree drop in temperature Thursday. Glad you got your big bread order finished. Terrible havoc in the Phillipines. Has anyone heard from Tenna. They had a relic of Pope John Paul in the Cathedral today. There was not a seat in the house. I knew it would be mobbed so I did not go but Tom did. He had to stand. Today has been good. BG104. I am still upset they are giving the cancer 2 more weeks..If it had to be removed why the wait. I am bewildered by it all. I have been thinking of cars. Take good care of yourself. What is your next order? A BIG HUG. Reed

Hi Marie, complicated question! Thanks for asking... My shoulder is getting better in that I have a much larger range of motion than at the beginning, when I needed a sling 24/7, but my arm/shoulder are so weak. I see my ortho surgeon this week; he'll probably arrange for me to have physical therapy. I am encouraged by the progress I've made, so that I now think I'll be back to normal in a few weeks of working at it. In the meantime, I'm forced to be way too inactive!
