It's my first initial and a creative spelling of my last name minus a letter. When I worked at Intel my id was my first initial and last name up to 8 characters, and my buddy started calling me scarleto. :-)

You certainly deserve it. I am OK. My BG are stable most of the time. Nobody's perfect !!! Have a nice weekend. Cat

Good Morning,Doris. I hope all is well. Russ got no answers re blood pressure.Maybe it is this...maybe it is that or it could be this in other words you do not know. I called my orthopedic doctor and asked who his family uses for a doctor. When I cal this morning I hope he is taking new patients. Are you feeling pretty we;;? Any pain? I hope not. Can you lift? Just take things slow and easy. I hope Ken continues to do well. I think of you both and keep you in my prayers. Have a good name. HUGS,Reed

hi Doris, sorry I didn't call you back. getting a tons of calls and emails regarding our quilt show, I don't know why some people have to make things so difficult. you know when you see someone on your caller id and you just don't want to take the call? errrr. we got our blood taken this morning and it was another frustrating experience. at least I got Cheryl, she's good and remembers I ask for the butterfly. she had to poke ed multiple times. I couldn't stay in there and watch. my new computer is really fast. today I may see if I can load any pictures from my camera onto it.

GOOD MORNING,DORIS. WHAT'S WITH THE HEARTS? How are things with you? I hope you are feeling much better and you and Ken not in too much pain. TOPS tomorrow BORING we have to go over the ByLaws page by page. MY PCP is retiring and I have to look for a new one. Many here not taking new patients. Many are Lebanese Pakistani etc. Oh,well,what can you do. You just be sure you and Ken take good care of yourself. Take care. HUGS,Reed

Thank you so much, I am so happy to be here. Might take me a bit to learn how to navigate this forum, so much available. What does 'Tu'Diabetes mean? Today I wrote a poem I am excited to submit for the poetry contest. I cried when I wrote it, often in my journey I have been without medical insurance and could not afford to buy insulin, or pump supplies, or nutritious food, and would go a long time without, of course my bg would go very high, and I would be so sick, and scared to lose my eyes, legs, kidneys, my life. I have watched many friends lose limbs, go blind, and die of diabetes. My poem is about that.
Thank you for the warm welcome, I look forward to make some new friends, and learn more about others journeys. Blessings!!!
