Hello my sweet friend, Sohair. It is your long-lost friend/sister, Lois. I miss our communications and even the early morning phone calls. I am currently battling to keep my other foot from the surgeon's knife. Because of the Charcot foot, I am prone to pressure blisters on that foot.
If you would like my new telephone numbers, drop me a personal note. Hope all is well with you and your family.
hi Sohair, just checking in with you, hope you are well. I just had a visit with my mother, she lives 6 hours from me, she just turned 90, and is not doing well right now. I enjoyed seeing you post some pictures. Manny has been travelling like crazy lately. next Friday he will be on the live chat, it's probably not a good time for you, but it would be lovely to see you in the chat room.
I'm so glad to see that you're still here! How are you?
I'm back, after being told I'm diabetic again! My diagnosis is just as confusing as it was the first time around. I don't think I'm going to escape from diabetes, although my doctors are happy with my numbers.
"Stuff"!! How's the weather at your end...hot and muggy here...was going to weed after the brief rain shower we had here yesterday....but the air was very thick....and my back still recuperating from having washed the kitchen floor 3x over on all fours (the old fashion way) the day before, when our middle grandson Riley (2) decided to spit out his juice all over the place. I would have been arrested for what I toyed doing to him! The room that our daughter was in before moving into her own place is now taken up as a storage room for Timothy and Steph (son and d-i-l). (Our son and daughter and theirs were here since mid January since the house they shared burned to the ground. No one was hurt, except for 3 pets that perished. Our daughter has moved into a new apartment, and our son has purchased a house and they are moving out of our place mid July!) The storage unit they have rented is all full!!! They're moving into their own house starting the 19th of this month! The repeat empty nest syndrome lol. It sure will feel odd to have the whole house to ourselves again! Steph (d-i-l) has a bad ear/sinus infection. She went to a walk in clinic yesterday, and was put on meds, including ear drops. Early evening, her ear was bleeding, which is not uncommon with ear infections...but I nevertheless offered to take her to ER, knowing that we'd be there for at least 6 hours...no no no...she didn't want to go. Midnight, as I'm coming out of the washroom to go to bed, she and Timothy are at the kitchen table...seems that now she feels she should take me up on that earlier offer. I said to her, "you realize that we'll be there all night 'till mid morning anyway!" She had gone to the internet, and of course got frightened by the comments and suggested diagnoses of her bleeding ear! (sigh....who listens to me!!) So I said..."call telehealth" (a telephone access here, that helps to give you a heads up about your symptoms). They basically paraphrased my comment to her..."you have been seen, you DO have an ear infection which may bleed, you are on medication for it, you do NOT have cancer nor have you suffered trauma to the head. Call your doctor in the morning if it is still bleeding" Who listens to me!!! So this morning, she called her doctor who will see her at....3pm, and the appointment was later changed to 7pm! Guess the doc doesn't share her concern!! So...life goes on in the Miller household! Sounds SO much like a soap that I should ask you to stay tuned tomorrow...same time same station! How's life at YOUR end?? hugs and best wishes....linda
It's a stress reduced weekend. Big celebration at church tomorrow! Son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandchildren away till tomorrow (Easter) after dinner....and daughter will be away tomorrow, while 3rd grandchild/son is visiting with his dad for Easter day. There will be left overs available for them to have tomorrow evening from my end....but the stress of prepping the meal will be absent! Will be having turkey and the works....plus a dessert of sorts. The grandchildren are getting books from us as an Easter gift! Today...it's left over fish from yesterday!
Sohair, so nice to hear from you. did you see the no-sugar poetry contest is happening again? We are enjoying spring here in the eastern US, many flowering trees, we were lucky not to have a difficult winter. how are your patients doing? hugs, my dear friend.
hi sohair, I was just thinking about Saundra, and missing her. it was three years ago today we lost her. she was an amazing woman. I hope you are doing well, my husband and I are in a rough patch right now with him out of work, it's going to get even harder I'm afraid, I am comforted by so many here.
A New Year....already 2012!!! I have made SO many friends here at tu., some I meet daily, some I meet frequently.
Some...occasionally. No matter, I have been supported and have felt loved.
I don't know how I managed before "coming home"...but here is where I belong :)
Tu.diabetes is my second family...here, I need not explain nor defend myself. Here,
I am free to be me ♥ Thank you for your friendship...for you poetic imaginary.
Dearest---Would so love to see you in person. For some reason, I have faith that this will happen. Dear Sister Kathy and I made it happen after years of trying! Keep me posted if you come to this continent, and I will let you know when I might be able to meet you in between somewhere if not all the way there, which I would love!......Love, as ever.....Judith
Hi Sohair. Thanks for the new bird on my page; at first I thought you meant another version of the IDF Hummingbird! Christmas is in full swing in my life. I've been to two parties, but have yet to get our all the cards and gifts. Happy Holidays to you as well!
