Hey Judy? Thus sayeth the famous gastronome and cookery writer Jean Anthelme Brillat Savarin, "A meal without some cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye.” An interesting description indeed!

124 (6.9) this morning, coming back down to normal. Although still registering in the 220s after teaching, hit 233 after this morning's class. The NP at the endo's office said not to worry about it, but it is something I'll ask the Dr. about during my March visit. Also it was another brutally cold morning here in paradise, -10 deg F when I woke up this morning. Hard to keep my feet warm driving a diesel when it's this cold . . . plus we're getting lake effect snow just about every night. brrrrrr.

I feel like Flower in Bambi: "Is it spring yet?"

Well, the bit I got with lunch certainly was. Rich and creamy - almost buttery in taste. I think it's a bit mild but Judy 'agrees to differ'. She thinks it too strong for her taste. That's fine by me 'cause if she don't eat it, it won't go to waste, and NO - Alys does not get to share it!
Edit: Just had to add that it's a low fat item. Only 89% fat

A 102 for me this afternoon.

Tamagno, my BH has quit watching the Weather Channel, they seem more interested in sensationalizing the forecast much more than just saying its going to snow, rain, or whatever it is expected to do. I guess scare mongering draws a bigger audience, and viewer numbers influence advertising dollars.

Judy, shame on you, that makes my cheddar seem so, so, uh, plain.

Wally, I know what you mean about this lingering cold, I'm up sneezing and need a bib for the runny nose. But if it keeps my body from looking for something worse I guess its OK.

I went to the eye doctor today, and he said I need cataract surgery sooner rather than later. He said Glaucoma is starting, and the surgery will take care of both. I know you told me before that it was "no big deal" and the d. was no problem. What I am scared of really is having an insulin reaction during the procedure. I know that's crazy, but fear often is. Tell me again, please!

Don't worry, the anesthesiologist will be maintaining your equilibrium, and aware of your diabetes.

You will be able to see like a twelve-year-old, if you get the same outcome I did.

You aren't put 'under', so you'll be slightly sedated, but still awake enough to even talk with the docs - at least I was. And it isn't a long surgery - mine took about 30 minutes, but others here have said even shorter than that. I think you should trust the anesthesiologist to keep you stable - even if he feels you should run a little higher than you're accustomed to - it's only for a few minutes.

And it's so worth it, Kathryn! It's incredible how much better you'll see. I had known I couldn't see well, but I had no idea how blind I really was until after the surgeries. I also realized I prob'ly shouldn't have been driving before. 'Course driving is a little different out here in the hinterlands - 25mph on our gravel roads! If I'd been navigating a large metropolitan area, I prob'ly WOULD'VE stopped driving.

Again did not test today. Had lunch at 3 PM and then did not eat the whole day (I know I should be more responsible!). Something funny is happening. I am so hungry every morning that as much as I eat, its not enough. And after my lunch at noon, I just feel I cant eat a bite. Weird pregnancy workings.

Kathryn MC- good luck for your surgery. I will be praying for you.

How do I convince my son that I cant pick him up from school in a tractor or a truck? He is bored of the 'same old car' !!!
