Happy First Day of August,Doris. I hope it is a little cooler month. Although they say today will be 96 or better. I am feeling much better >Tom has gone home and Russ is Russ if you get my drift. My BG 113. I have no appointments today so I can stay home. I hope you continue to do well. Your numbers continue to be good. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Good Sunday Morning,Doris. Just back fro m church. All my patients doing well. I do not what got to my leg but bed rest did the trick. I think Florida knows no other than 90..it is 93 and it isn't even noon. Glad you went out to eat always a nice change of pace. Once Russ gets rid of the purple eye we will go out. BG 127. Hope your numbers re still good. Keep cool. I imagine TN is as hot as we are. HUGS,Reed
I know what that's like. just tell yourself to spend 10 or 15 minutes cleaning, and that's it! you may want to keep going after the ten min.
hey, we were setting up at the fair yesterday, and I was looking at my pump to see when I took my most recent bolus. another guy on the Home&Hobby committee, said "hey! another pumper!" and pulled out his Minimed pump. turns out he's had it for 40 years, almost as long as me. of course I gave him a TuDiabetes card. I'll be back there again today, my job is to accept the entries to our competitions, not just quilts, but all the handicrafts. some of this stuff is really cute, and imaginative. then there's the recycled art category. one girl made this great totebag crocheted from plastic bags, and another kid made a spaceship from an old hubcap and upside down bowl. then there's the giant 350 lb ball of tinfoil! I must take a picture of it, it will put a smile on your face. wearing my TuDiabetes tshirt today, maybe I will see another #pumpsighting
Thank-you Doris, As a newby, I look forward to meeting everybody and finding out that I'm really not alone and that there are many other approaches to controlling diabetes other than just mine.
I have been a type 1 diabetic for about 33 years and on the pump for about 6 years. While I'm in relatively good control, I'm getting older and that alone slows the healing processes and life in general. While as a Chaplain, I stay busy; nevertheless, my wife and I do get away some. Our kids and grandkids live abroad and we get to visit them regularly. Enough about me, I hope all is well with you. Thanks again for writing me.
I cannot believe you are having Pump problems like that. How many ways can there be to test A1C!? Wasn't CMS already paying for your pump? Why in the world would they need you to qualify for it again. Have you made any headway on the replacement?
bgnow 108, up early here, gotta be at the fair by 830 and I got stuff to do. Reed busted his achilles tendon, I guess Tom will be doing all the care today. oops, running out of time here, and I haven;t had enough coffee yet.
Oh I am sorry Doris I hope you didn't fall into it can be very hard at times.
Lol wait till the 13th thank you but I would rather baby came asap and by the looks of it its due around my birthday so just seeing if its gonna arrive on the day or not.lol
Oh sweet it doesn't matter really how old they are when they graduate as long as they have love and family around them as well as their health then life is full of choices.xxx
