Good Morning,Doris. Everything back to normal after your trip. I bet Ken's bones are aching. Physical therapist just came for Russ. His exercises are the same as I do at TOPS. My BG 104. Doing laundry a usual Monday chore. This situation with Russ is wearing me down.He will not listen. Stubborn as hell. He says he is ready to give up. You soon will be having your procedure. I will be with you in spirit. My best to Ken and have a good day. HUGS,Reed

yes Doris, it was like I got a wrong number and I just freaked a little bit.

we ended up going to a garden center, Lowe's and Walmart. walmart had the best prices, (duh) but I'm not sure about some of these tomato varieties. I may get some plants from my quilting carpool buddy. she has a HUGE garden and told me she put her seeds in this past week. I think she has some kind of green house too. I can always trade for some bread. I have to feed my sourdough again this afternoon. so that means when ed's brother and s-i-l come over tomorrow to pick up their cat, it will smell like heaven in here. they went to Paris for 10 days. they're always going on vacations. bg 144

Happy St. Patrick's Day. The first thing I had to do was reset the clocks the timers microwave and reboot the cmputer. The lights must have hone off during the night. Russ doing much better. He sees about his leg 3/22 everyone says they put in a stent. His blood pressure back to normal. A nurse is sup[posed to come today. I wonder if she remembers it is Saturday. My BG 102. Tonight we are going to STONEWOOD in Ormond Beach for dinner. You both doing ok after that long drive? I hope so. My best to Ken and you take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Doris. Purple is my favorite color. As I had not seen you around,I was beginning to worry something was wrong with you or Ken. Glad it was a trip. Have to weigh Russ and record it if he gains 4 or 5 pounds call doctor. Record Blood pressure. He just took it 132/78 much better than 89/36. At 10 he has the physical therapist. Later on he might need surgery on that growth. He sees aboy the blocked artery on 3/22. How are you both feeling? Did you drive to Dallas? Hope your readings are good. Take good care. \My best to Ken. HUGS,.Reed

wow, now this is really purple!
Doris, that sounds like a wild ride you had there. I don't enjoy gambling at all myself. I sure can't afford to do any at the moment.

I'm going to spend the day with some quilting buddies. Helen is going to take us to PA to a quilt shop where I have a gift certificate (ya) I think I'll take her a loaf of bread, I'm going to need to make some tomorrow (gotta keep the sourdough starter fed).

Good Morning,Doris. Once those doctors get you in their clutches they will not let go. COUMADAN too high and Russ at the doctors now,. Just got a call from the urologist. He wants to see Russ tomorrow about the growth on his adrenal. He was good in the hospital. Today at home no zip can hardly walk his legs are the problem. I hope when the physical therapists come they can help him. He should be in REHAB but will not go. He will kill me instead. In spite of it all my BG 104. How are you doing? I hope well. Tom has to go home his annualreports are due/ He has been a godsend. How is Ken doing? Give him my best and you take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed

Hi Doris!! I am okay, been a long winter for us even if it wasn't too cold we just get a little stir crazy. Working too hard... too many jobs running around between California, Miami, Virginia, Puerto Rico, North Carolina, and Jersey. Everybody says "be thankful" and I am, but I think the bosses are taking advantage of us. Jimmy is getting big we have so much fun. Today we watched a roll-off truck dump a container at the end of our street and I thought his face would break from smiling and excitement. Lisa has been good too, we can't wait for warmer weather to get back outside. got a ton of stuff I want to do, I swear it seems like every year I get a little farther behind.

so what's up with the shoulder???? mine has been frozen for 13 years!!!! HA if the scooping works let me know I am next!!~!!! HA.. hope you are okay anyway let me know if your shoulder is bad or it's something else... sorry to hear about K I hope they are alright now. thanks for the note Doris!!!!!

Good Morning,Doris. Russ has MRI today. He does not mind that it is the waiting for the results. Please God mo operation needed. I would be stuck as I do not drive. Tom is on his way. My BG 98. It is 73 here and dreary we might get rain. Does rain affect your bones and Kens it does me. I usually can tell the weather. not doing much today. This afternoon need to go to the fish market. I hope Ken continues to do well. Glad you are not baby sitting just too too much. Taker care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Doris. How are things with you and Ken. I hope you are both doing well. Has Ken started PT yet? Tell him to be careful and not overdo. MY BG 102. I hope yours was good. I am going to the dentist at 10:45 I hate that all those tubes in your mouth. Glorious day here bright and sunny. You babysitting? I see they moved our photos back to wwhere they were. I hope you both have a very good day. Take care. I care. HUGS,Reed
