Russ will see a heart specialist Monday. He should have done that lomg ago. His PCP is internist some cardiology but I think Russ needed to see one who isjust that. I have therapy ay 10:30.I am going to ask him when can I get out of thr WC. Hope you had a good night. My best to Ed. Hugs, Reed
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
Good Morning, Marie. It is good to be doing the Welcomes again. BG108. It was terrible in Rehab as they did things on a sliding scale and I never got my true numbers. Therapist coming today. I missed a day so this is a makeip. I then have only 4 more. I can do almost everything now. Russ has to see a heart specialst. Waiting for appointment. I told him that months ago. Tom in Las Vegas for a conference. He gives a presentation this morning. How is Ed? Give him my best. Tom said it is soooo hot in Vegas. 90;s here and a shower in the afternoon. Take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed
Marie,I got the letter from Emily on the Care Team going under some really good changes. I still like doing welcomes and Happy Birthdays so want to still do that-But can't sign on for certain times to do it.Never know from day to day when I will be online. So I am out of the Care Team but I still care :) Take care sweet Marie :)
Hi Marie. I usually keep Udi's white sandwich bread (available in most big grocery store freezers) in my freezer. It is both gluten- and lactose-free, and it toasts well and tastes pretty good.
Yesterday I tried a box mix, King Arthur Four's glutenfree bread & pizza crust mix. It makes one loaf; you add 4 Tbl butter or oil, 1 3/4 cup milk, and 3 large eggs. Glutenfree flours pick up taste very well, so I thought this tasted very good (like eggs), had good texture, and toasts well. If lactose is not a problem, I would recommend it.
My husband is my (good) critic as well, is NOT gf and likes wheat, and thought this King Arthur loaf was pretty good--he doesn't care much for Udi's white sandwich bread. However, Ginger Viera wrote that she likes the Udi's very much!
Back when I was using my bread machine, I made Pamela's bread and like it pretty well--it's been too long to remember much about it, but I remember liking it. Might haul that bread machine out again one of these days!
Marie, thanks for the kind well wishes. I do feel better today. One good thing about an RA flare is that they do subside eventually. Well at least they always have in the past and hopefully it will always will.....rick
Hi Marie. We had an 82 degree summer day, but for some reason I decided to bake. How on earth do you do all your bred baking in the summer?!!! I wasn't baking from scratch, but I tried out King Arthur's box of GF bread mix, and I thought it was pretty good. Also made some brownies. Having sampled all my wares, I've been shooting up ever since! Hope you're having a good summer.
Hi Marie, Thanks for the nice greeting! Yes that's my Joslin Medal which I received a few months ago...I'll complete 59 years on 9/3 so in reality I believe I'll be getting the 60 year version in 2015..assuming I'm still alive and kicking and being the same ole DIA-BAD-ASS I've always been ;-)
And how lovely to get such a great update from you. Good Goddess, do I remember shopping with my Mom. While I feel like you do about the acquisition of new clothes or "stuff" (it's always very practical for me---I find a pair of knit pants that is comfortable and buy 4 pairs in different colors that last for years, for instance---though I have never forgotten one style lesson from her---if looking good is suddenly important & you can only afford 1 new thing, buy a stylish jacket!---it can make all your clothes look "new").
As her health failed, I would always bring my computer when I went to care for her and we would shop online for birthday and holiday gifts! I think there is a certain kind of "engagement" with the lively colors and interesting strangers and the sounds of Life in general that makes these things meaningful as shared experiences!
Love the delightful irony of your bread-baking endeavors. I am sure it is Deeelish! And so very glad that your exquisite quilting continues to be a thread in your life! I have never forgotten how honored I was to have a panel in the TuD quilt.....
With the help of my good-hearted PCP, this spring has been about figuring out how to deal with newly dx liver and thyroid problems, on top of everything else. Next appointment to go over test results is June 30th. So it goes....Blessings and love, old friend...Judith
Hello Marie .Glad you got to see yoir MOM. Was she in a good frame of mind? I had a male therapist today and he was good. He had me walk using the walker the entire length of the house and back. I did this 5 times. Then he has me stand in the kitchen leaning on the sink and doing all kinds of exercises. We each get our own breakfast and lunch BUT I get the dinner.I do almost everything now. I even can get in and out of the car. I was disappointed about prostate cancer. I thought that was a dead issue. But my PSA went from 6 to 16. So he has given me a cancer pi;; once a day for 3 months. I hope Ed is doing ok. Glad you are still making bread. I miss TOPS. I do not know when I will get back there. Take good care. A big hug. POPS
