Brief update

Typing this on my phone, so it's going to be short. Mom had her
surgery, and it was successful. She is still in the intensive care
unit, but they will likely be getting her to a regular floor later
today.

I'm doing okay; on track with food, pretty much, and blood glucose
levels are in range. Not quite getting as much exercise as I would
like, although I did get in a fantastic run this morning. (I'm staying
in Santa Barbara near the hospital, and it's a beautiful area for
running. Hilly, too, which was a nice challenge. More cars than I am
used to, but not too bad.)

Will hopefully be back to normal posting next week. Thanks for all the
nice comments and good thoughts for me and my family--we appreciate it!

I'm glad you're both okay. I was starting to worry about your absence. I have my fingers crossed for her transfer.

Congrats on getting a run in.

Sounds like you are doing great. Keep up the good work. You are awesome that you did that on your phone. It would take me at least two days to type that on my phone.
