Saturday I attended a fun birthday party for a special 4 year old neighbor. My daughter and 3 of my grandchildren were there also. It was a fun day and I even had a small slice of birthday cake. I am so glad that I found out that I do not have to completely give up everything I enjoy!

I had a wonderful visit with a Endocrinologist last week. I am so glad that I made that appointment. They gave me so much more information on diabetes and my diet than my primary Dr. I now know that I do not have to give up all the foods I like, just have to have them in moderation. I even had a little cheese grits last night with my oysters and fish ! We have been in the high 90's and some triple digits so I am spending most days inside with the air-conditioning, rereading "Gladys Tabers" stillmeadows sampler, watching movies and shopping on-line for the Grandchildren some new school clothes. I am enjoying the summer and looking forward to fall ! Life is good !

It has been almost 4 months since I was diagnosed with diabetes. It has been the most difficult time of my life. I had never really been sick before and I was so sick! The combination of the meds, strict diet, fear and depression really hit me hard but the past few days I have turned the corner. I have my energy back, I am eating more, for so long I was afraid to eat and lost too much weight too fast, for the first time I cooked a big meal for my family, even made a banana pudding! I also went out to a new restaurant and was able to eat like everyone else and enjoy it! Also I felt well enough to go for a new hair cut and pedicure this weekend. I now know that everything will be alright! Thanks to everyone for the prayers, encouragement, emails,messages and cards!
