doris, that is some wild ride you had there. funny, I've never had a glucagon kit. guess I;m lucky. I think they're coming out with premixed micro-dosing glucagan. I may ask my endo about it, I'm going in a couple of weeks.

Good Morning,Doris. Did you and Ken survive the PT? I hope so. PRAISE THE LORD. There is nothing wrong with Russ's hip. Why not walking? He has STENOSIS in the leg it will get better. He put him on PREDISONE for 15 days. Remember the growth on his adrenal gland? We forgot. The surgeon did not. He sees Russ May 22. If an operation needed they do not cut they go in with a rod or something. I am doing ok.My BG 109. I will be 85 on the 15th so Tom is coming for 5 days and tomorrow I am ging to celebrate early by going to Bette's A1A Cafe for New England Seafood platter with clams. Hope you are not too sore. My best to Ken. HAPPY MOTHERS DAY> HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Doris. I know today is pt day for both of you. I hope they do not kill you. Russ goes to the hip guy at 2:30. I hope he does not beed a hip replacement. You know the adrenal gland growth? We had forgotten it. The surgeon did not. He called Russ yesterday and wants to see him May 22. What next? My BG 104. I am feeling pretty good. NO RAIN everything drying up. Hope your readings were good and that pt not too dtrenuous. My best to Ken. HUGS,Reed

Hello Doris. My computer freezes.It gets me so aggravated. Strange Russ cannot walk without the walker..this all happened Friday. But he can drive. He says driving you are not standing on youyr feet. I wanted to gain 2 or 3 pounds at TOPS but I only gained 12 I am way below goal. BG 109. Russ sees Dr. Grimes tomorrow a knee and hip doctor. That will be all I need if he has to have a hip replacement. Hope you and Ken both doing well. NO RAIN they keep promising it but we never get it. Hope your readings are pretty good. Take good care. I am under STRESS. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Doris. Off to TOPS I will write when I get home read what I wrote to Kathy. I hope Russ can really drive..I am kind of nervous. HUGS,Reed

Hey Doris, typically you don't get a Windows manual with the new computers. our latest computer here did not come with any book. you can get a book at the library, when we had our XP computers, we bought a book for about $25, if you have a place that sells used books, you might be able to pick one up for pennies, since that operating system is not being used any more on new computers. also, I can probably find you an online version. you need to know things like the minimize/maximize boxes, we'll get you learning one or two new things a week.

Hi Doris, well it's time to start. I wanted to wait until my fistula matured but that is not going to happen. I am having a really rough time here at work concentrating on my job. I have decided to take a little down time and write D&D #6. So many feelings. How can a person feel hope and fear at the same time? Well I am. I just need to grab on to that hope and let it carry me through.

How are things with Doris?

Doris, I replied to your pm. you mean the window is small right?

How's the Doris doing...are you getting the new computer before this one bites the dust? It's been very sticky here today. Not good for the ole asthma! Rather disappointed that yesterday's apogee moon was not as impressive as I had hoped! It was overcast in the eastern sky here last night. By the time I could actually see the moon, it had risen in the sky and wasn't as large as what it might have been earlier! Spent quite a while on report cards today, so I rewarded myself with a visit to my friends on Tu. Hope all is will with you! Have a great upcoming week,

Hi Doris- I did miss you. I have been doing lots of welcomes to make up for you. Computers are great when they work !!! Hope you are recovering from your shoulder surgery, and hubby is recovering from his surgery. It is starting to clear up outside after a rainy few days. Think I'll take a walk. Cat

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!
