Re: [IP] Re: DKA is what it was

My hat is certainly off to you!  You have to lot on your plate and still
manage to do the best for your husband.

Feel free to put a sign in the house that hubby can read once a day.

"I am so lucky to have this woman as my wife.  She loves me and cares for me
like no other could."

I would consider myself very lucky to have some one half as good as you!

Best wishes!


Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in
finishing an activity but in doing it.
