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.

Hello Doris. At 5 AM I went to Tudiabetes and was shocked to find 37 new members. That is a lot all at once as I type every word not programmed. Crazy Winter rain then 81 this morning 52. I am so pleased Kn is doing so well. He just have to be careful not to overdo. Doing laundry going to the drig store my exciting day. My NG was 92. I hope yours was good. I could not believe when you said you were 18 glad Ken knew what to do. I see 3 typing errors forgive me. Have a great day and take good care. I care. HUGS. Reed

ok I saw you had a glucagon shot yesterday. what happened? what made you go so low? I was bolusing all day yesterday, I even took a shot for my dinner bolus and then it all caught up with me in the middle of the night, bg was 52. just really down in the dumps today.

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

Hey Doris, how's K doing? And you?

At 8:33am on February 17, 2012, Marie B said…

you could surprise her with a thank you for helping. just saying, "you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar" (my grandmother was always saying that)

At 8:06am on February 17, 2012, Marie B said…

I did see that. maybe I'll send them a link to the TN group. how's K doing? can he drive yet? what's happening this weekend? we have no plans.

Hey there Doris! thought that i would drop by your page and let you know that i have not fallen off the face of the earth :)

Good Morning,Doris. How are things in Peaceful Vallet? Is Jen continuing to do better? Walking is good for him as long as he does not overdo it. I hope the pain has lessened. Russ slept all night no coughing. We just now wait for the two specialists to call him with appointments. I am doing fine. Housebound as I do not drive. MY BG 94. I hope yours continue to be good. First line I meant Valley and Ken not Jen. You know I flunked typing. Blah out they say 70% chance of rain. This where I go to church check small panels at the bottom too.

You have a wonderful day. HUGS,Reed

Hello Doris. Up at 5. I just could not sleep anymore. Russ still sleeping. I feel like I have been drawn through a wringer these past two days. Thank God Tom was here. I do not drive. Cabs are $15 just to get in town and I would have had to use a lot of then. Docto told Russ if you do not want to lose your toes you better see the cardio doctor. How re things with you? Ken continuing to improve? Has he stopped his moaning? My BG was 98. How was yours. Russ loves cashews NO MORE. Have a very good day,Doris. I care. HUGS,Reed
