You're good Mona - awfully short bright side though. Laundry is always creeping up, like a virus you can't get rid of..........There's always something dirty or getting there.

You feeling any better? Hope so. Did you give it to dh?

Aw Deb - I was so hoping the steroid shot was going to be the thing that knocked that bug out of you.

Thoughts and prayers for Ken - what a burden to have hanging over him - and you - for so long too. 6 months is a long time with that on your mind all the time.

Love, love all your pictures.

i hear ya on the getting blood EEK i just tell them in the middle deep! Ken's motorcycle riding buddy?? his wife is a plebotomist (SPELLING) and she looked at my arms and said i don't see why everyone ha=s such a hard time so if i ever surrender to another blood test i am asking for her she doesn't have the bed hmm bedside mannner?/ but she is very efficient and i can handle that
hang in ther and man oh man if it helps you as much as it helped my mom you will be soo pleased!
Thanks Deb - you know - it will be interesting to see the difference, because I really don't have any big problems with seeing - other than not seeing things as well at a distance. And halos around car lights - but since I rarely drive at night anyway, didn't bother me.

I have never figured out the blood thing - I do know though - that if I drink lots of water - it's easier for them. I forgot that this morning. Although - on the morning of surgery - I can't have anything after midnight. I've found that if they don't get it on the first stick - it will take several.

Happy Birthday to Kenny - nice that he did manage to come see you - he did put forth the effort, so you hang on to that. Now - don't go looking through all those photos of when he and Steven were babies.

Ok here on the east coast - it's 5 1/5 hours till 2013. Everyone have big party plans? We are going to hunker down - just dh and myself - and the 2 granddogs............party animals? Don't think so. Will - hopefully - watch the ball in Times Square welcome in the new year, if not - we'll welcome it at breakfast. Think I'm getting old? That would be a YES.

Who's going to be here at midnight? Can we have a party on here for those of us that are staying off the roads? Ds is having to work all night - to watch out for the party goers.

What's the January thread going to be Deb? Or haven't you decided? Challenges? A new beginning? lol - another new beginning. You're lots better at that than me that's for sure.


We have a neighbor - on the way up to the highway that has blowmolds out - only got to see them lit up once - so pretty. Made me think of all of yours and how pretty they must be. Now you have to store them again till next year - that's always sad to me - putting all the ornaments and lights away. I'm with Melinda - I'm going to leave my ball ornaments hanging in the windows. I really like to look at them.

Well, 33 years of sticking people she says - and I win the ribbon. She said she only does 2 and then sends anyone down to the big lab guys. So, I hem/haw - and she agrees to a 3rd stick. Nope - then they tell me it will be at least 2 hours before they can try in the lab. So, there I sit - asking her to try one last time. 4th time was a charm. Ugh - I'm going to have pretty bruises on both arms and hands. Very stressful.

This afternioon - the nurse from eye doc called and said she had all the results from the lab. my sugar was 329, that the doc wouldn't operate if it was over 300. Told me to cut out all the carbs, pasta, etc and just maybe it would be under 300 by Tuesday - day of surgery. That I should call my doc and told me to go in friday afternoon - to my doc and get another test for sugar. I call my doc - the receptionist puts me on hold after I told her the numbers. She says - doc says come right now.

I'm sitting at the table with dh - and literally wondering what happened. Not to mention scared. I called the nurse at eye doc office to ask her how - I mean I had my blood work from 6 months ago - and sugar was fine. Can that really happen so quickly - and she says - well if your pancreas isn't working, etc. Sigh - guess my brain wasn't taking much in - and I say - technically it was a fasting blood - since all I had this morning was tea and some walnuts.

As we are walking out the door to go to my primary doc - the phone rings - just about didn't answer - but I did - it was the eye doc nurse...........something was bugging her - and she took all the paperwork from the lab out - and as she was looking at it again - here the lab had included another piece of paper from someone else. My sugar levels were just fine.

I really didn't know whether to get mad or laugh or cry. Same with dh - I feel so fortunate - but - omgoodness - what about the person with the 329 sugar level.

So, that was my day - and I'm good to go for cataract surgery on Tuesday morning. Now I need to go read the posts I've missed.

Hi everyone - sorry for such a long winded story.
Oh my goodness, Linda, what a scary and frustrating day for you! I am so glad it turned out to be a false scare. And, as you say, really sad for the person whose blood sugar was 329.

Goodness what you must have gone through! Very, very scary.

So I presume you're all ready to go for the surgery.

No, no big plans for us. John is still asleep and he will just wake up and we will eat and toast at midnight and that will be about it.

We can certainly have a party on here. However I am central time and you guys some of you are on Eastern so you will meet the new year earlier than I would.

Mine too or else it just gets wrinkled.

I'm glad. Maybe his is a much earlier version---probably 2-3 years ago is when I got it. It's probably better now.

I don't even know if I'll make it to midnight. Plus, like Eliza, I'm central time too. I saw the tv commercial for the Times square party/ball drop and I didn't even recognize most of the performers. Sad, when you get old and don't keep up.

Dh and I did get invited to a party here in town at an event center that has weddings and stuff. It's a byob and they are having some snacks to purchase and dancing. If it were next year, I would definitely consider it but I can't get into a fancy dress at my current size. I would not be comfortable plus I'm still recovering so next year.

I'm not quite as sick as I was but I still have an annoying cough and a lot of crud in my head. Yes I did give it to Dh but he has been over it for over a week now and I still have it!

Glad that your sugars weren't really that high. Good luck with your surgery.

Home from work! Speaking of laundry I have to do some. Working a 5 day week and I only own 4 pairs of work pants....so doing the complicated algebraic equations leaves me 1 pair short.

It's 32 here and very foggy. Had a ton of traumas come into the ED last night. I was working in blood bank. Kept busy all night long so the night went by fast.
