Hey Marie - that eczema on your hand sounds right nasty. My husband has a problem with ONE hand, that flares up from time to time. They've never been able to figure out what causes it, they've opened up his hand to find out what is lodged in there, but it's never really solved anything. It's not as bad as it was 10 years ago, but still has it's days. One thing, when we go away to a warm, moist climate (e.g. when we go to the Caribbean for a few weeks) - all his probs clear up! I wish I like hot/humid weather, because we'd live there then (he likes that weather, I like the northern weather - total opposites - give me a warm wooley knit sweater anyday ). Take care (psst - we're almost twins in our diagnosis dates - I was diagnosed in September 1968 - isn't that wild!).

Marie, I talked to Debb last night after I got back on the computer and she told me that it was an 80 something old man that had hit them in the snow storm that had totaled out his car last week and had just gotten another car back and it looked like this one was totaled too. I read Debb's comit on my page and atomatically called her! She said her grandson had gotten out of the ER and was OK as far as they could tell, Steph is keeping him oout sclool today and make sure!

So your hubby gets back today? I know how I get when my husband's gone for a day or 2 , I can't wait for him to get back. But let me say this he drives me crazy if I'm with him day in and day out! Just been married too long huh?

Thanks for the comments, Marie! I was surprised to learn how many T1s are working in medicine. I never noticed until I started to pump and then I met them all over the place. Physicians and other practitioners see the pump and then they pull their pump out!

I'm planning on working as a PA in cardiothoracic surgery, although I do have an interest in endocrinology as well. I am a member of the American Society of Endocrinology PAs, but there aren't may great jobs in the Chicago area in this field.

Have a great holiday!

Thanks for those tips Marie! My inbox is filling up pretty quickly. I'm spending so much time on here I've become a slacker in my "school" duties. Trying to write my last essay before Xmas break. Have a great day!

Am so happy for your great news! I'm in awe of your talent. I'll not wear something if it's missing a button because I can barely thread a needle. Elizabeth Rosenberg has a new web site, in case you haven't seen it. She's doing some interesting new work.

Thanks for your kind words. Means a lot.

Hope you're doing well, Madame Prez.

Oh my gosh Marie I thought I told you that I went by Doris, But i will answer to Doris Ann too! Sorry I saw where you were calling me that but decided that I would let you call me that anyway! So you get to keep down on the carpal tullel surgery? NO FAIR I've had to have i like 2 years ago on both hands! Then I had a Trigger Thumb that had to be done too! My hands were just there to look pretty they served no function for about a year. I still can'y open a childproff medicen bottle so I just get the flip top kind! HA

You guys get all the blessed winter weather don't you? The low tonight is suppost to be like 17 so of course with us ppl used to the warm weather we have to winterwise aroound here. One thing even the news was telling us this morning was to leave our water on a slow trickle to keeop from freezing up tonight. The weather also said that it was really unuasually cold for this time of year in the Mid South! Guess I get to freeze again tonight! HA!

Hi Marie, I joined the Seniors Group but there is very little going on there. Lots of joiners but not much talk between them I wish I had more time to interact. I spend very little time on Tudiabetes bou I love the site and its friendly members.

Thanks for the suggestion that I join this group.

I'm sooo proud for (and of) youou Marie!!! Good!! The Linda I was talking about was Lina Gauvin-Miller. I sent a note to her page to ask her if she cared and she said no. Well you can read it on my page but it made me so happy anyway!

I have 2 daughters Amber and Brittany and I have 2 granddaughters Amarie and Savannah and a grandson on the way in January (on the 24th) Amber is the mom and the Type 1 too. just to get you updated here. Don't mean to sound like a smtie but thought you might have forgotten the cronological order of things at this crazy house.

Anyway I just wanted to let you know what's up here! Glad you had no trouble getting to where you were going. I'm really sorry about that DR but sometimes we just have to grin and bear it as bad as we hate too! HA!! I hope this note finds you well anyway!

Hi Marie. Thanks for the welcome. Not used to this type of socializing. Don't Twitter, not on Facebook. Just got into TuDiabetes for an informational resource. I'm sure you're all a fine group of folks but I'm not one to write notes to the world regarding what I may be doing at that moment. I guess it's a generational thing, I'm a couple ahead of you!

Hi Marie!

I know what you mean. This community has done a lot for me, and I felt like I needed to give back somehow. I know it may not be much, but I like to think that I can make a community better for my being here.

I teach Organizational Leadership at a state university. My primary job is teaching classes virtually to international students in China at out partner institutions. I've actually been able to travel over there a couple of times to the campuses we work with. It's been fun.

I know I'm just too protective when it comes to Type 1 but I know what I went threw and what her mom went threw so well I just wanted to know! Everybody here was making fun of me but well...

See told you, that you guys would get more snow! HA!! It's colder than a witches tit down here now! I think the high was going to be like 29 today! That's just plain COLD to a Southerner who is used to 90 degree highs (or higher). HA!

THank you I really didn't want to upset anyone here but I'm getting tired of just saying Welcome so and so I didn't know if she would get upset or not. Now I've got to e-mail her too and let her know what's up.

In our family its been told more than once we've inharted the "D" I'm really sorry your the only one in your family with it. It's really hard to ge folks that don't have it to understand what it is. Like my youngest here and my husband! They really can hit my buttons sometimes but we all have our crosses to bear huh?

Thank you for the welcome. I am currently deployed and today is the 15th anniversary for our oldest, the one with adhesive reaction all of a sudden.

Well Marie the Dr put my fears to rest about Amarie today! I was getting worried she might have Type 1,. She was pooping, urinating, and always thrusty. Maybe I'm a little too protective but.well my thought's weren't the best here after my daughter, me, and her grandfather on her dad's side (he died at 35) all being Type 1 it just well stayed in my mind. Exp after I got a 174 reading one morning here on her. The Dr told me that she wasn't dehidrated and her bs was 84 all that was wrong with her was she more or less had a bad infection (stomach bug) that made it look like that now I can get back to where I was at here!
