Hello Marie. Another terrible night. Up all night. I think Russ was on my mind, He is in terrible shape. Now he cannot walk, I am so afraid he will fall. I gave him my walker,I wish his heart doctor appointment is not until Aug 11,How are things with you> Did you sleep> When does the Fair start. That will keep you busy. Give my best to Ed. Take care, Hugs,Reed

Hello Marie. This has not been one of my better days. In bed a lot. Rain dampness and heavy therapy last session cause ,y entire left side and arm to ache. I finally broke down and took a percopcet. Russ was terrible. In a fog. Talked Ragtime and could hardly wAlk. He tried a new antibiotic and I think that was the cu;[tit. Tomorrow will be better. Boy you have a lot of interesting things in the future. Chili contest bread you can do it. Hope Ed doing ok.Big auto sales here. Always good to hear from you. I suppose I will get better each day. I know I am trying. Take good care.HUGS,POPS

Hey sister. So today Joann's had a big mess of coupons for 50% off (non-sale items, of course) so I trudged over there and everything I needed was on sale - 30% off.
I got some olive cotton knit to make this
although am going to modify the lapels and bring them out more to get that ruffly cascading look. Wish me luck.

Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night PTL. I was told use walker more. If I go to church just yet I know I cannot walk down that long aisle. I will use WC so I cannot kneel. The priest will come to me to give me communion. Did you have any bread orders at the Guild? It is hot here but the humidsity is higher. You cannot move. The tree people did the palm trees in my neighbors back yard. Yep stuff came in my yard hit the butterfly bush but they came and picked the stuff up. No more of yhat until next year. Russ seems to be doing better. I keep trying to get him in to the doctor before August luck. How was your night? Give my best to Ed. I broke my Reading glasses. You know I can see just as well with the ones from CVS. Take good care of yourself. Thinking of you and Ed always. HUGS, POPS

Boy...I gave Tom a huge shopping list. We went to Hammock for the ride. Then it started to thunder and rain. Nothing like yesterday we had the effects of Arthur. I thought the roof was going to blow off. I never saw such rain. I am feeling great. Get tired easily. I can walk a little without the walker but I am not going to overdo it. I now know a broken hip takes over 3 months to get you back where you were. I had a good night. How are things with you. I hope fine. Give my bes to Ed. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Marie-I am glad you got the box. I hope it came in good condition. I may be able to send you more Fastclix in a few months. I tend to forget to change the drum. There are so many settings to use before the lancets get dull. If I didn't tell you we plan to move Aug. 5. It will be here before we know it. There are still so many things to pack. We did give away lots of stuff to a local charity thrift shop. Also a young couple that we know just bought a house and can use anything. They are taking some furniture that we won't be using. Our 2 cats will have the 2nd bedroom. We are boarding them for 2 nights when we do move. I don't want them involved with the moving company. Hope you and Ed have a nice weekend. Happy 4th !! Cat

Hello Marie. I was tired but I had one of those nights. Even with sleeping pill I was awake all night. Some time today I am going to try and get out of the WC and use my own walker. I only have 4 sessions of therapy left. Tom says it is 112 in Vegas. Russ seems to be dpoing better but his feet swoolen. The lung doctor wants him to see a heart doctor. We have a call in to Dr. George. It is too hot to do anythingl. Does Ed work today? Give him my best. How are things with you? I hope ok. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
