With Ed's surgery on his right leg, I started thinking it was time to go to one car. We rarely go different directions ... especially since he's been ill. The only conflict I know of would be on Thursdays when I have my "Inspire Your Creativit... Read more

Every day brings ups and downs these days. His meds bring up his blood sugar; food brings up his blood sugar. He needs to eat to gain weight. He wants to do everything himself. (after all he IS a man.) He's getting about 2500 calories a day... Read more

Baking and decorating the cake was so delightful. The surprise was great..he really didn't know anything. I told him our daughter (PURPLESWIMMER) wanted to visit him. So, he thought he'd have one visitor. He had four human visitors and a dog... Read more

Today we went to see Ed's surgeon We both agreed he's one of the "good" ones. He listened, answered in language we could understand, and took as long as necessary to answer all our questions. Exercise has been a challenge this week. I'm ... Read more

My husband was moved from Intensive Care to the main hospital today. It's been a pretty rough ride. Thanks, Everyone, for your prayers. The doctor said he may be able to move back to the Rehab Facility in a few days. Let's hope. He will... Read more

The conference wasn't as helpful as I hoped, but at least we got to talk with the Social Worker and the nurse. We learned that they don't DO Diabetic diets--in fact, she said it was against their policy as each person is to have what they want.... Read more
