Doris, hope you're getting that new computer this weekend. make sure they put AVG Free on it, I was recently reading Consumer Reports and they ranked it pretty good for security/anti-spam etc. and it's free!

Good Morning,Doris. Am I glad I insisted Russ go to the doctor. He had a huge calcium deposit on his hip that created bursitis. He would be in constant pain. They gave him a shot of cortisone and a pill for his neck. He still cannot walk without the walker. WHAT NEXT?? There is something all the time. He has to see a surgeon on the 14th to do something about that calcium. Hope you and Ken doing ok. How many more pt sessions do you have. Keep me posted when he goes see about the blockage. Hot today 90s no rain. You doing anything special? Mer just grocery shopping. Take care both of you. HUGS,Reed

Good morning,Doris/ Russ woke me up with his neck pain about 3. I tried to sleep a little more but just tossed and turned so got up at 6. I have 21 friends I write to everyday and if it is the same thing that I need to say I do the message to all. My BG 98 this morning. Russ has the heart doctor at 11 this morning. I wish Tom were here as he makes Russ tell all. When he goes alone he tends not to tell everything as he wants no more tests or put in the hospital. What can you do.I hope pt does not put the two of you in pain. Tell Ken the artery cleaning is not too bad. They say 90's the next few days no rain boy d o we need it. Brush fires and smoke. You back to baby sitting?I hop you both take good care of yourself. I have cut Russ's portions way down. He is 6 3 and is losing weight. I hope he gets some answers this morning before he drives me crazy. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Hello :) I'm type 1 diabetes. I found out a month ago. Can I ask you what are the things you do when you heard that you have diabetes ?

Such beautiful grandkids! I love the mountains too! Would rather live in the mountains than the city. Where were these mountains if I may ask?

Hi there Doris! Thank you for the greetings. I'm enjoying the amount of information I'm seeing here. I love the pictures, especially the ones of holiday (the mountains), and the children.

Hiya Doris! How have you been? Ive been pretty well. Staying indoors most of the time if I can. Its been horribly hot here. Weather temperature swings from 35.5C to 42C.. Its a very very hot and humid summer. My bg readings are not very happy since I get so stressed out when its hot. Thank the air conditioner gods. But sometimes, I also need to go out and attend to the garden...geesh...I know how a sizzling egg feels like ha!

Good Morning Doris. How are things with you? I hope the pain has lessened. That pt stuff is a killer but I guess in the long run it does some good. BG 112. Tom painted the roof above my Florida room. He did a great job. It looks great. It saved me a few bucks. Soon to be 85 I am not getting up om a lady. Hw is the car running? I hope good. Ken doing well? He does a lot of work so I hope he is careful. Keep me posted about his blockage and what they plan to do. Give him my best. You take good care. HUGS,Reed

Dear Doris. Good Morning. Sorry to hear that news about Ken. Russ had the exact same thing they cleared it out used a pig graft and he has had no truble since but he has to have it tested every so often. I was up all night with Russ throwing up. Glad Tom was here to help me. These golden years are something else. My BG was 109. Going to church at 5PM as Tom was asked to read for someone so we do not have to go tomorrow. You still in pain? I hope not. Does it hurt when you move it? Take good care of yourself. My best to Ken. Tell him not to worry. HUGS,Reed
