Thanks! There appears to be lot to read on this site. And, it will take some time going through it all.

Hey, I read your blog, I noticed that you lost your dad. It is always tough to lose one's parents, especially if you are close to them.

I still have my mom. But just two minths ago my sisters who live in Texas had to put her in a nursing home. She fell in February and broke her hip. She came out of the operation ok but she can't walk anymore. They have diagnosed her withe early signs of alzeimers. I can't talk to her anymore like I used to. Used to talk to her for hours. You know they used to say later in life these would be your golden years the best years but without your parents how can they be.Without them to share them with. And you know we still need our moms when we don't feel well.

No D, not safe yet. The so called bonus is supposed to hit Nov 15th and I think he'll do a change then. Interviewed 2 people on Monday from what I understand. Hell, it's not even a bonus - is commission I already earned. They just defer it 6 months! There are sooooo many scenarios up the air right now that could happen that I don't know which way is up. I know I've done more than enough to stay but in this business they think they can 'upgrade' people all the time. Heck - I might not even be on the chopping block but I have no idea. Doesn't bode well for eating or blood sugars! Oh, well, going to try to get some rest now. Sleep has been hard to come by!

Hi Doris, Just found out your Dad passed away, I am sorry for your loss. I know how you feel. I lost my dad a few years ago and it was very hard for me. Still is. Your memories of him will start to be happy ones as time goes by. Again sorry for your loss and you will be in my prayers. Sincerely Mrs Apple

Hi Doris- It seems like I have been welcoming a lot of ppl from TN lately. Have you noticed that ? How are things going for you ? Well, I hope. I am going to CA to see my daughter and her family and I plan to meet up with Manny there. He is really close to where my daughter lives. Marie told me about her meeting with him last year and I am getting excited.

Hi Doris: :)

How goes it? I hear that you's had Bad winds in your area. I hope that you's are okay.

Gerri said that People on the Welcome Committee can use zombie avatars(or other Halloweeny pics) for their profile pic for Hallowe'en season, if they want to. Cool! Danny's idea again.

Are you and the GrandDaughters doing anything for Hallowwe'en?

Uau, I'm glad you discovered this. Any time you passed out outside of the hospital? Somethings seems like magic when we found it, isn´t it? I had problems with wake up in the middle of the night with low blood sugar, as 37mg/dl for example. I need to eat lots of food to pass through the night with normal sugar level. But I think this is an usual issue. However it is really crazy how a detail can make our lives much better. Have a good day! kisses

You look like a spunky 37 year old from your photo! And yes, I have heard of Type 1.5 and think I am more like this description.
