Good Morning,Marie. I had a good night. Even so I am going to call the doctor. I have 2 bad nights and a good one like last night. Dark and dreary. HUMID.I am debating whether to give up TOPS. Walking is so hard for me. I do not dare to get the papers anymore. He throws them to hit car when garage door closes my walker will not let me go there. Oh well. I am so tired of complaining. We are swating oit Russ's insurance. It is now $876 a month for one person.They have been going up by the 100;s. He will be 88 tomorrow. Willgo out to eat Saturday.

Hi Marie-It seems that I haven't connected with you for a while. I am sure you are just as tired of the cold and snow as I am. We may get some snow Tuesday night. Yuck ! I ended up having to get a new meter after all, b/c my ins. Won't cover the Accu-Chek compact plus anymore. I will be getting an Accu-Chek Nano meter. Have you heard anything about it ? I had a voucher from the Accu-Chek website so I will have 2 of them. One from the mail order pharmacy company and 1 from the voucher. I am waiting for the test strips to arrive. My new PCP, who seems very thorough, has OKed the change. She gave me samples of the pens I use, which I appreciated. Are you still baking breads? How is Ed doing selling cars. Hopefully the car sales business will pick up with the soon to arrive warmer weather. We still haven't heard about the apt, but we are cleaning out the house. I found things that I never used that I got for wedding presents 48 years ago. I don't think I need them. I hope you have a good week and the snow doesn't come. Take care. Cat
