Our Monday Check in is just a way for all our members to stop in, say hello and let us all know that they are ok. Participating means we won't worry about you and also will know more about you even if you don't post on a regular basis.

So, share how you spent your weekend and your plans for the week ahead.


Super nice weekend for the most part for me. Mama still struggling with lows off and on. I am calling in to get her pumped tweaked. I was sure the infusion set recall was the issue, but it seems not to be the case.

Saturday she didn't feel up to the Botanic Gardens, so I left her with food and phone. We had a great time with my partner's mom...though we wore her out. (and only saw a small portion of the botanical gardens despite a good six hours there)

Yesterday we made a brief trip to the nursing home to see my sister who has had another set back. But then we went out to lunch and to the Art Museum. Fabulous. I hadn't been and we certainly didn't see it all but had a blast. I think Mama was glad to get out and spend a "normal" day out. She seemed far more alert and less troubled than usual, despite how bad my sister is doing.

I did catch her calf with the corner of the car door though and it bruised up fast and bad. Blood thinners rot. (ok they are mostly good.)
