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

I was actually trained by Tanya Parlock. She's great.

Thanks for the comment!

My CDE's thoughts pretty much match yours. She asked my doctor to order the c-peptide test to see if I'm T1 and thinks I might possibly be T1.5.

Here is the data I sent my pump trainer and CDE this morning. Keep in mind I'm on a .9u/hr basal rate.

9:44 am 99
12:02 pm pre-meal 105
2:00 pm post-meal 110
4:56 pm 97
6:23 pm pre-meal 85
8:47 post-meal/bedtime 99

This morning I woke up at 123.

RED TAPE. If Medicare loans you a wheelchair the y will not loan you a walker. Don't they realize you work from a wheelchair to a walker. Someone donated a walker to my PT group. Got it home. The legs were different. I tried itand the thing collapsed. I will buy my own. Not having one is hindering mt getting to walk. BG 110.I am doing better as long as I stay ypright. Never thought I would have to learn to walk again. Hope things are well with you. Give my best to Ed. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Hello Marie. I have written to several people and not a word back. So unlike Pauly. I fell. Learned a valuable lesson always check to see if brakes are on. Going from red couch to wheelchair I must have donw something as I was on the floor. Thabk God Tom was here to get me up. NO HARM done. I saw my PCP. He said blood vitals all fine and I look good. He ordered a new aluminum walker and a 3 in one commode for the shower. Tom will pick them up after work. Russ not much yjey can do if pain in neck bad try ice bag. I do not think he will be with us too long. Tough shape. BG104. How are you? I hope things are ok. My best to Ed. I am really trying to get back to normal. A BIG HUG. Reed

Good Morning,Marie. I am getting stronger each day. The PT has heavy exercises for me to do. She does not like my old aluminum walker too shAky and leans to one side. I see my PCP tomorrow and he will give me a orescription for a bew one. I can stand long enough to use the microwave. My only thin I cannot do is put my stocking and shoe on the left foot. I keep trying. I see Russ going before my eyes. He hears voices and the latest is to join the circys. BG104. Sleeping great. Happy your bread sales good. Beautiful day. I will open slider. I cannot go out as 3 steps. Take good care of youtself. Tom comes tonight. Give my best to Ed. I look like a skeleton I have lost so much weight. A BIG HUG,Reed

I just watched the video. It was extremely helpful, as I have never seen a pump or pod actually being inserted. I have a head start for next week. Thanks for the link. Is the best place for assistance with omnipod questions the omnipod group?

Thank you Marie. I'm still trying to get the hang of getting my DM under control. My daughter disgorged this year and I was last year. Look forward to meeting new friends who understand

Hi Marie - hope things are going well for you.

Hi Marie - and thanks for the welcome aboard message.

I'm somewhat lost with my diabetic control at this time and looking to re-establish that - hence the decision to join tudiabetes.

Hi Marie :)
Thanks for your warm welcome. I'm not actually sure what I'm looking for yet - I'm still in quite a stunned state of disbelief about my diagnosis. I have a healthy BMI, and in the space of three weeks I went from a type 2 diagnosis taking no medications at all to taking two types of tablets, insulin, and cholesterol drugs. And it's forever - disbelief! I'm just reading lots on your community. Knowledge is power, right?

Thanks, Marie! Right now I am looking for experienced adult Omnipod users. I start on the pump June 11th.

Hi - Thanks for the welcome. I have been on the pump for just over and year and haven't really had any issues. Though, the first night I was running a temporary basal (didn't know this at the time) and when it ended in the middle of the night, it kept beeping and I couldn't figure out why. At some point I turned it off and it kept telling me that I needed to turn it back on. oops!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I just joined but I have been active in other forums for nearly twenty years. My diabetes is very well controlled with an A1c of 4.8 for more than 2.5 years. My last A1c earlier this year (January) slipped a bit to 4.9 due to holiday season excesses but I have been back on track ever since. I joined primarily to help others but have been too busy with other priorities.
