Brighter Day today

Well I didn't get the rest I thought I would. A friend called and one of my best guy friends in high school, lost his dad, so got dressed out of the cupcake pjs and went to the funeral home. I have seen this parlor room so many times in the last 6 months that it's starting to feel like a second home.

Just seeing how strong their mom is helped me a great deal. I told her she had not changed since I last saw her, which was probably 40 years ago, but the guys I see more than that. I love seeing Christian faith shining in someone's eyes and it was clear that she was prepared for him to die.

Well today I should find out if I am diabetic on top of everything else. My morning blood sugar has been in the 190s and at night in the 200s. That could have bearing on why I feel so bad and shaking. I am lucky, as my drs wife is also BP, so he has been very helpful to me. It's good that you like your dr. because I will see this one for the rest of my life, unless they find a cure. I know that having the hip replaced will help, but not sure what they can do for my spine and the adhesions.

So today, even with the ugly skies, it's much brighter now and I am so thankful for the wonderful people who visit and encourage and pray for me. God Bless you all. Even with your illnesses, you take time to lift my spirit. I discovered blogland from Tia, aka, mizsmoochielips and it has been a wonderful journey getting to know you.

So as a lovely rubber stamps says "I'm putting on my big girl panties and dealing with it"---lol. Love and Hugs, Pat

Greetings! I came across your blog somehow - and when reading it I remembered the post about your dad passing, and so shortly after your mom died. I am just wondering how you are doing, along with all of your health issues! I pray all is well! I also was wanting to ask you what you mean when you said you were "bp", if you wouldn't mind me asking. My daughter has just recently been diagnosed as being bipolar, and wondered if that might be what you had meant. It is a whole new world to us.... Would love to hear from you if that is waht you mean by bp, and if you are open to talking about it with me. Please just email me at my sbcglobal address, that would be wonderful! Thanks - Diane
