Greetings Richard....
I read on Kathy's page that your wife was unwell following a tic she better now?? Those have a way of escalating into something serious rather quickly at times.
All the best....linda

Hi Richard. How are you doing?
No snow here in Minnesota and people are whining for want of a "white Christmas".
Temp in the high 30's. Lovely.
Was Anita's treatment for lyme disease successful? A few years ago I had a friend who went undiagnosed and ended up in the wheelchair. After she was properly treated, it took over a year of rehab for her to get back on her feet. She is fine now.
Here's wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Richard, of course you may read my blog. Thank you for the nice compliments. I don't know what I'd do without my online friends.
Kelly Booth said she knows you. I do also. She is one well-informed and knowledgeable lady.
BTW, your grandkids are adorable.

I don't know if you are on FaceBook, but Sue is. She goes by Brody Bonin on FB. I am not aware but I don't think she is a member of any Diabetes online forums or blogs.
I message her through FaceBook about upcoming meetups.
