Hi Marie,

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are "stuck" in Trinidad having some work done to the boat to make us more energy independent. We hope to leave here for Grenada soon, but we are currently on "island time" so who knows when we will actually move on.

Thanks for thinking of me,
Fair Winds,
Mike

I will ask tomorrow about the spare meter. I ordered the spibelt case last week and it is being sent to my son in Sacramento and he will send it on to me. I have the clip like yours and was using it today. Love your quilt, I looked at your photos and saw your beautiful quilts. I don't get much time to quilt but I love it. I will put up some photos when I can. Am not very good at it but will get help to put them up.

Sorry for taking so long to reply. One of my sons was home for the weekend and took the monitor from my computer so I was out of touch. I am really happy with my Combo and am going back to the nurse tomorrow to discuss how things are going. I only have one meter which uses bluetooth to transmit instructions to the pump, probably should get a spare in case of trouble. Will ask tomorrow. I find it so much easier then MDI. Had to sew pockets onto all my pyjamas. Might do same on some of my trousers too.

Morning Marie, What's up with you and your hubby today? Is he having a "Happy Birthday" or is he in the same place mine is "I'm getting a year older and I miss it when I was 20" I think it's funny to see a man take his B-day so hard! He made so much fun of me when I turned 40 that seeing him turn 46 is just funny! Right now til April we're both the same age then ib April I turn a year older than him! What's it called..Midlife crisses?? HA!! Done and done it!!

Your quilts are nice, too!
I'm studying Psychology.
Don't be afraid, I can't read your thoughts ;-)
My doctors always said, if I wouldn't know how to motivate myself, who else should know then? But it's a very different thing to deal with yourself... I had a lot of problems motivating myself. Now I'm better up a bit, but that's nothing I learned in my courses ;-)

I got lucky when it comes to cooking tomorrow..My oldest is taking her dad and me out to eat! One thing here we're going to a place where he gets a free meal for his birthday! Yep that works!!! HA!! Well like I said I'm trying to be low key, I've not really watched myself for the past year and now I'm reading all the posts and blogs about others here with the same deal going on. I WAS doing good but then life kinda made a visit and well my diabetes kinda took a backseat for a while, really DON'T WANT TO GO THERE! Tell your husband "Happy Birthday" tomorrow from the tudiabetes person Doris and you guys make it a real special one!!

Hi Marie - Thanks for reaching out. I spent a little time this afternoon reading through some of the posts regarding LADA and I found them truly enlightening. I was diagnosed in August 2007 while living overseas. At the time I was informed that I was type 2 based on Anti GAD 65 readings that come in positive ... however, upon returning back to the US late this, I quickly located a new endocrinologist, had a full spectrum of blood analysis performed only to learn that I am LADA due to a very negative Anti GAD 65 of -225. After considerable online research, I have quickly learned that I am in a prolonged honeymoon phase. Upon being diagnosed I under went insulin therapy for 3 months to stabilize my system but have since been using oral meds that have not changed to-date with my A1C holding around 6.5. I only use insulin when the desire to crawl out of my small culinary box arises and I want to treat myself to sushi or a nice helping of pasta.

I would would certainly enjoy connecting with your sister. Not far from her, in Wynnewood, I seek additional services from Integrated Diabetes, run by a gentleman named Gary who has been type 1 for nearly 30 years.

I'm now using the Sure-T sets by minimed b/c I had so much scar tissue from the long leedles I had to go with the shorter ones> My bs was way out of control this time last year and the MM rep kept changing my infusion sets til we found one that worked! Long try out there! I think I tried everyone they make! HA!!

I change mine too everyotherday but I really hate it when I hit a bad spot and have to change it again within 24 hours! I changed mine last night running 124 and this morning (I missed up telling you my bs it was 364) with that high! Needless to say already changed it out again now doing better (down to 234) Just give it time it WILL FALL!! Hope you get a good walk out there in the snow flurries bundle up well when you get out to walk and get that birthday card!!

Afternoon Marie. How's your little piece of heaven today?

Thank you for the welcome. Looking forward to developing friends who can share what works. Tend to put off taking action that can help me. Time for an A1C and to think about a pump seriously.

Lucky enough tobe in pretty good shape and want to keep it that way. Are you aware of any groups that meet in the Sacramento Area?

Hope you holiday was a great one.

Met Christian and he is very nice. Got connected to my pump and it is fantastic. My BGs yesterday morning and this morning were 100 and 120. My usual numbers were 220 to 300 because of dawn phenomenon. Today so far (it's 8.40pm) all have been between 70 and 150. I am delighted. You will love it when you get the combo over there. Everything is done through the meter, the pump stays in your pocket all the time and the meter bluetooths the date to the pump.
