He’s a Rare One

AJ, AZ   High 83  Low 57

Got this update from Rod’s DIL - Thanks for the cards and prayers. Rough weekend energy wise but did a quick bloodwork check and everything looks good. Keep the prayers coming!  ❤️ Rod & Family

Had the first of many doctor appointments today. Jim’s blood work showed that his glucose was low and the doctor is having him cut back a little bit on his insulin.

The doctor told us that Jim is a rare one because he is so healthy even with his battle with diabetes. His eyes are good, his blood work is good, his A1C is low. That makes us very very happy.

Of course, I’ve always known that he is a rare one.

We’ve been busy saying goodbye to more folks. Did have time to play some cribbage and dice with Marv and Donna. Donna made the best apple pie. She also makes the best peanut butter fudge I’ve ever eaten.

We’ve also been looking at RV’s with Paula (shadowmoss). She’s trying to find a Class C that will work for her.

That’s about it from our little patch of earth here in Apache Junction.

  2. Glad to hear the reports are good. Did he go back to the same eye doctor? I had an appointment on Monday and they said I'll need to have the cataracts removed, but I'll wait until fall.

  5. I will echo everyone else in the thanks for the update on Rod, and glad to hear Jim is so healthy. Having been a solo female trying to buy an RV, I understand completely the pitfalls of the endeavor. So I'm happy to hear that you and Jim are helping her look as you can give plenty of good advice from your own experience. I wish I had known you guys when I started.

  7. No sure I would label Jim a rare one. I think it would be more like a special one. Glad he is doing so good!

  11. Great news about the diabetes. Mine has continued to get worse even with new types of insulin they are trying on me. I go for 3 month check up next week and dread it but, who knows, it may have improved and then I'll be doing the happy dance.

  13. Shoot. Lost the whole darn comment. I got back from camping to find good news about Aunt Happy and Rod. I wish them continued good recoveries. Aunt Happy is like the energizer bunny!

    Glad to hear that Jim is doing well. Insomnia has struck--5 am and not a wink. Sorry Jim, but the picture of the plane in the bushes made me laugh out loud.


    When are you guys headed for big sky country!
