Hi Bobby. Sorry for the way late reply on your bike inquiry. Work's been crazy busy, and I haven't been on this site in a couple of months. Anyway, I have a Puch road bike (an old off brand made by Bianci) and a Canondale mountain bike. I actually don't get out much anymore, but it has more to do with having 3 young kids than it does my diabetes. I've actually got my BGs pretty well dialed when I do ride. Yes, you've got to watch out for those truckers. Not many of them like cyclists. I've had more close calls with anti-bike vehicles than I care to recall.
Anyway, thanks for the contact. Don't sell the bike. I know when my kids get a little older, I hope to start getting more miles in.
Bobby, I was thinking of stopping by to see what you were doing today, and I saw you were online, so I just knew you were okay. The video was good, we all loved to see you "live" and it had good tone, on key, and of course a song I know and love. It was the real deal! Just what I needed to hear. A keeper, just like you, my friend.....
Thanks for visiting my page. The photos are of my Granddaughter's high school basketball team (they are District Champs and Holiday tournament Champs as well) and the others are of the Ice Storm of '09. We were without power for a week---some areas three, almost four weeks!
Hey Bobby, a great page you have! Godspeed to you in your treatment of T2. My husband is a T1, which is why I joined this site. I am an RN and help manage his diabetes. Of course T1 is different from T2. He has to have Insulin and has been on it for over 40 years! So thankful to the Lord for His watchcare over us. God bless and keep you in the palm of His hand. I joined the Scripture Group a few minutes ago. PSALM 91; 103; PHILIPPIANS 3:14; 4:13.
Bobby, this is a place to come when you are falling down. I always tell people here, no blame, no shame. I'm probably around the 7 mark myself, maybe more. Here we love you no matter what. Isn't that what Jesus does?
Bobby, how are doing? I loved what you wrote about Sandy. She made such a difference in my life too. She has been a real inspiration to think that maybe I could help someone here the way she helped me. Last night at the chat with Manny (when we weren't teasing him), the thing he said that really hit him was how many people with d are lonely and crying in despair. This is what Sandy was all about, and to honor her, I'm going to try to continue her work.
hi Bobby, I was leaving a comment for Dave and noticed your Sure-T question. I LOVE the Sure-T sets, and thought i'd give you some advice. I usually put some IV3000 over the insertion site, and for the connecter part I rub on some Skin Tac before taping it down. That pretty much keeps it set for me. The skin tac is SUPER sticky and works really well. here's a link to some samples: http://www.torbot.com/view/1017/16571/
I know what you mean about the God issue. My biggest challenge these days is accepting my mortality, seems I decided at age five I was going to beat D. Only problem is it cannot be beat, woke up one day a few years ago and realized I needed to realign my goals.
The weather is great out here now it was 77 yesterday. So all those years ago were you going to Juarez? Do you see the news about Juarez? It has become a battle ground of the drug cartels, actually a dangerous place these days.
I am in El Paso is the Hobbs you mention NM? I liked your music, bluegrass is a favorite of mine.
Sorry to see your Kidney challenges keep working on the A1C and work your protein intake.
I am interested to see you post about the pity issue. I have been at this D thing a bunch of years. I always see folks getting into a pity party about their diabetes. The Buddists work so hard to live in the moment and it is a great way to handle diabetes. I just finished a book called From Science to God By Peter Russell it is a great read and has helped me a lot with the challenge of staying focused and motivated to keep fighting D after 51 years. Your presence here is important and the people will find strength from you.
Yeah Borger is still the same ole same,,still a little oil industry..but the refinerys have grown some what now! It's Chevron/Phillips now! The best of luck to you on the resivoir and will be praying for you!
Hi Bobby I was reading a post and noticed that you were from Amarillo! I live in Borger. If ya ever need any up dates on the ole home town just give me a holler! And please use everyones ADVICE,,,,get to the closest pahrmacy now! or home,,,,God Bless
Hi bobbie I thought I would invite you to a group I just started. I did not know if it would be ok to share this in Lean on me or not and I cannot find where to email you in private so I thought I would invite you on here. I hope it is ok to if not just delete. You are very encouraging so I thought you would be a positive influence. Thank you
Very nice to meet you. My family is also full of diabetics :) on my mothers side + her and on my dads side too! It actually works well. We all band together.
Also great to hear you're an NFL fan. Me too. I'm not exactly a Cowboys fan. Grew up 45 min outside of Pittsburgh. They are great fans and taught me a lot about the game. This is already a surprising year. Only a couple of weeks left.
Hope you had a great new year. I am definitely ready for 2009!
