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.

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

Marie-I am glad that Reed decided to come back to TuD. It seems that every 6 months or so he gets overwhelmed by his problems and thinks leaving our fold will solve them. I guess it is his age that affects his
decision making. I hope you resolved your insurance woes. My ins. company can be annoying sometimes too. I hate to have to call them for anything. This year they said that your PCP has to be in their network. The one I currently use isn't. I have been using him for 12 years. I hate to have to change. I may try to use him as a specialist (he is board certified in Internal Medicine too.) He also handles my D for me and writes all my scripts and gives me insulin pen samples. I hope you enjoyed your quilting guild today. Have a great Sunday. Cat
