Another Busy Day

Yesterday afternoon Bob and I went out to the church and cleaned. While I cleaned he tried to fill the baptistery for the service Sunday. It held while we were there. There has been a problem with the drain leaking the water out. After this service Sunday, we will call a plumber to come fix it.

Meanwhile, Bob had a doctor's appointment this morning to get his sugar checked out again. It was up to 344 yesterday evening. Evidently he ate too many carbs yesterday. But this morning before breakfast it was 244. He tested two hours after breakfast and found it down to 196. The doctor gave him a blood pressure med to protect his kidneys. She said it was really not actually for his blood pressure. His blood pressure is 98/68.

We will go to Independence later this afternoon to visit a member in a nursing home there and then stop at the church and check out that water again. It will have to hold overnight Saturday.

This afternoon at 4:00 we have the rehearsal for the wedding we are having there tomorrow at 11:00. Afterward we are going to eat out. That will be a challenge for Bob with his diabetes. In fact, there is a basket dinner planned for after both the wedding and the baptismal service and he will have to be careful then too. I can see this is going to be real fun for both of us.

Margie, I'm so sorry about Bob's diabetes. I can imagine how difficult it must be to adjust. I know how much I love to eat--it would be so hard for me to give up certain favorite foods! Thinking of you both...

Thanks so much, Patsy. I am so happy to hear that. I always have petunias but they always got leggy and I was hesitant to cut them back.
