RE: Plumeria and stuff

Andrea, I'm so glad you are taking care of yourself now.  Like everyone
says, Diabetes is a manageable problem, if somewhat of a nuisance if you
have to test frequently.  It is well worth making the effort and you will
feel so much better.  Mother has had type II Diabetes for about 30 years
now.  She didn't let it slow her down (until recently because she forgets
she has the problem and forgets she's already eaten and craves everything
she should have.  Alzheimer's is a cruel disease.)

I'm also glad you are enjoying your new garden and your successful cuttings.
That is fabulous!  (It's good to know you can enjoy a brand new garden,

Theresa, I wondered how well you were following the restrictions following
your surgery when you showed us that wonderful gate re-do.  I'm glad it
didn't cost you more down time!!!  

I sure hope both of you take good care of yourselves!

Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)

Glad to hear your plumerias are doing well and that you now can improve your
health and well-being since you know what is going on with your body.  I
must say I am a bit surprised by your doc's diet
recommendation- never heard of that for diabetes before.  And congrats on
learning (even if it is the hard way) not to move ridiculously heavy things
by yourself.
I had my post-op follow-up today and I can officially lean over and pick
things up again (which is good, since as you all know, I rehab'ed a gate
last monday and did lots of leaning and lifting) : )
