Hi Marie, We had three days straight of snowing. It was really fun sitting by the window and watching it come down. Now it is all starting to melt. I feel bad for you. Snow here is not a problem. Summer is much worse to deal with than winter.
I hope you are feeling better after that high BG. Are you working on any new quilts? I would like to learn to knit. Now I really sound granny! Have you been getting out for walks or is it too icy? We walk almost every day. I missed a couple when it was storming. Soon it will be spring. Ellen

Thanks, Marie, for the link to Diabetic Amateur Radio Operators. (Diabetic Hams sounds like a unappetizing dish at a company holiday buffet).

Hi Marie! I've completely lost track of time, but it's probably been close to 10 years since Dr. Charles moved up to the Bay Area. He handed the practice over to Dr. Salaam but, at that point, they had completely stopped doing clinic visits and the Diabetes Research Center had become completely research oriented. I still do an occasional study for them and Dr. Charles would still come down to fill in for Dr. Salaam occasionally. I haven't seen him in years though. I agree, he was a fantastic endo and had a fantastic staff.

I think I need to add my voice to them now...
