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

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?

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!

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

Hi Doris D, thanks so much for the welcome and instructions they were needed. Have an awesome day.

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
