Hi Manny. Sorry I missed your birthday. I have had a very rough time since April 10 when I broke my hip. I am still in the WC but I try to walk with the walker. Then Russ in intensive care COPD kidneys heart legs full of water. I think he will be home tomorrow. Nurse and physical therapist 3 times a week. I am still able to do the Welcomes. Hope all is well with you. HUGS,Reed

Hi Manny-I hope this note finds you and your family well. Before I go on, I want to wish you a belated Happy Birthday. Thing have been quite crazy for Jim and I the past few months. We are moving to a Retirement community on August 5., it is quickly approaching. I wanted to ask you,I have 6 blood glucose meters that I no longer use and since we are downsizing, I wanted to ask you if you would like them to be able to be sent to impoverished people in the Caribbean ? Another time, a few years ago I gave you several meters that I didn't need to be sent there. They are 3 Accu Chek Compact and Compact Plus and 3 Contour. I would be happy to send them to you if you would like them. Please let me know before Aug. 5 so Jim can send them. I don't have a chance to visit TuD as much as I would like, but I try to get there whenever I can. Have a great rest of the summer. Catlover

Hi Manny, A few years ago, I won this Crystal Bowersox T-Shirt from Tudiabetes in a contest. I couldn't send you a picture of me wearing it because it was too small. I lost a lot of weight because of some complications of surgery. I was very sick but now I feel great. Here I am with the T-Shirt. I can finally wear it. Note the Novolog in my pocket!Thanks. Ellen
