Hello Doris. I am late. Busy Morning. Tom and Russ went to Ace Hardware for 2 items. They were handed a brown bad that said everything you put in the gad 20% off so they bought more than the 2 items. Last night,we have ON DEMAND,we get all the new movies. We were watching J. Edgar Hoover when the heavens opened up and it poured rain. My garden sang with joy. The swordfish dinner was excellent. It should be for $12.95 a pound. I had scallops. My Bg good as I hope yours is. So glad Ken is doing so well. PT will hurt at first but tell him to stick with it. Have a good rest of the day. HUGS,Reed

Hi Doris Ann - thanks for sharing my joy over the good news. I think I've finally come back down from the clouds and am looking at things calmly.
And now that the doc said I should lose 10 pounds I'll have to get some tips from the champion Reed.
Glad to hear that the mister is coming along.
Have a good weekend.

Hello Doris. You having the same kind of weather? At 7 this morning it was 73 and humid. I bought a funny card for the both of you it is big but I cannot find the envelope. STYPID me. My BG 118. I usually am better than that but I will take it. Tom wants fish tonight so I have to go to the fish market. He wants no this no that no desserts. I shoild save money. It is so good not to hear coughing we both are sleeping. I know Russ will say NO to an operation but I think he will have no choice with a blocked artery. I hope there is Peace in The Va;;ey and you have a good day. My best to Ken. HUGS,Reed

Hello Doris. What a Winter. As I type sunny and 76 degrees. A gal at TOPS had PAD in her left leg. I can tell you right now Russ will not go through the surgery she had. The most important thing it is the sane surgeon Russ is going to and she says he is OUTSTANDING.That afternoon his office called and Russ sees him 3.22. I hope Tom is able to with him as Tom speaks up to get answers. Not going to do a thing today. Russ is polishing copper. I hate HOUSEWORK. I cook shop pay bills doing laundry but do not know how to use a broom. HAHA. I hope Ken continues to progress and I hope your shoulder is not too painful. Have a great day and take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed

Hello Doris, Hope your hubby is feeling better and you have survived thru all of this. Work has been a little hard. Having some GI issues making it harder. I come home pretty tired and have been going to bed earlier than usual.Hope you are feeling well and enjoying the weather. But I have GOOD news here. We are blessed to be Grandparents again. My oldest son & wife, Brian & Toni are having their 1st baby in July. She had a rough start and didn't tell anyone just in case but all is well now and we are thrilled.

Good Morning,Doris. Miserable day bones are aching. Ken is driving? That is a quick recovery. Good for him. Next it will be your turn. Ken can wait on you. Lent starts Wed. Tom has told me what he is NOT going to eat. I will save money. Right now he is fertilizing the citrus trees. Russ went to bed at 11 and slept until 8 and NO COUGHING. Thank God. So very pleased at how well Ken is doing. Take good care of yourself. I hope your readings are good. I was BG112. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed
