Shall I groan and moan? My legs ached all night. Is it the heat? the humidity? What? I see the orthopedic surgeon today at one. I bet he says OLD AGE Lol. Good to have you back Doris. We missed you. How are things? Did you readings spike or stay good. Someone is punishing us 24th day of high 90's and a high heat index. I hope you are keeping cool and taking it slow and easy. Take good care. HUGS,Reed

Thanks for the birthday wishes. People here on TuD are so kind. Hugs to your daughter, too. I'm 55 today, so she'll have to run fast to catch up with me. Better yet, tell her to enjoy every moment. No hurry. ;0)

Hi Doris-Your g-daughters' earrings are very nice. My daughter dragged me to get hers and mine done when she was 5. I have been busy taking care of my husband since Monday. He had cataract surgery on 1 eye and will have the other one done next week. Hope you are doing well and it has cooled off for you.

Ha ha...too funny!!! It's weird how we get hooked isn't it?? I'm the same way....I'm on this for hours on a daily basis....I'll have to wean myself off before I go back to school....or I'll have to wear a patch lol No worries about the new members, but I think we'll have to be diligent about keeping an eye open for those who are out of sink. Some are as far down as 2 rows as the rest of their "pack" well, we've had some odd balls coming on, with no info other than their "name". How are ya anyway....the break away was good?
Take care kiddo,
luv ya....linda

Hello Doris. What can I tell you. We still have the heat. I do not know where Emily went she did not come here. I just got home from church. We had a visting priest from Ireland had to strain to hear him. I know there is nothing that can be done but my legs are killing me...OLD AGE. My readings are good as I hope yours are. Keep cool. HUGS.Reed

Hello Doris. You living? Isn't this weather awful? They say 97 today with a heat index of 105. Where is it coming from. I heard Texas has had 34 straight days over 100. It makes you not to want to do anything. I must get to the meat market today as Tom comes tonight and he EATS LOL. I finally got the laundry done. My leg ok today. I see the orthopedic doctor Thursday so will ask him about it. It seems so funny not to have Marie around. I hope she does not get too depressed about the home situation. You still baby sit now and then. And your Grandmother lives in this heat without A/C? My Grandmother used to say SHUT THAT DANG THING OFF.they were funny. Have a great day. HUGS,Reed

Hi Doris. Still hot here. Tropical storm hanging around...EMILY...we might get some action Saturday. I hope it does not turn into a hurricane, I gained 1./4 pound at TOPS. I needed to. I found out these ladies do not believe in doggy bags THEY EAT IT ALL> Still hot and humid. I am weary. My left leg and ankle acting up again..Thursday it was TRhursday last week. I hope it is not going to be a weekly event. Take good care of yourself and KEEP COOL. Hugs,Reed

Good Morning,Doris. I want FALL too. I cannot see out the windows so much moisture on the outside now that is humid. Did you see a doctor or a vampire 18 vials of blood? My BG this morning 93. Another day in the 90's. TOPS today. RAP SESSION each member has to talk two minutes on DINING OUT. Should be interesting. I am lazy got a lot to do but it is too hot. I hope your readings are good. Take good care of yourself and have a good day. I care. HUGS,Reed

So what is your A1C results? Oh come can tell me =) wink
I had been pretty busy lately, keeping my hubby company, like a chaperone, LOL. He just signed a contract with NBA Philippines as voice talent and he has been recording in Solar studios. With the strike going on...he has been doing some WNBA stuffs promotions and advertisements. Pretty boring stuffs for me...but playing over the computer or with my phone keeps me busy LOL
Other than that, things are pretty good...has been raining here with typhoons in and out the country for 3 weeks now. My scales are growing longer and my gills and fins are gearing up for floods! LOL One thing I love about the rain is that it gets very cool here to 79F. Not much but here, its a treat since it doesn't happened often.
How have you been doing? Its been pretty hot there I heard...

Doris Dahrlin':

Open mouth, insert foot!! You just gotta know by now that you never mention anything you don't wish a DR to act on. Considering you past nursing eduction, I am surprised at you!!! LOL!

I am now going back to my pre-nursing home DR and got cornered into setting an appointment myself! It's been years since my last breast crushing, more than that for my coloscopy (polyps history), and not as bad for the GYN thingie! I dread the day when my pump is due to croak because I can't afford to replace it.

Look for my blog or discussion in the very near future.

Love Ya Lots,
