Kinda stressful again at our house. But also have good news. Tomorrow I find out my A1C and I have been working VERY hard on this so am excitited to see what it is now. Ive lost 14 pounds so far as well. I am also approved by my insurance for my Gasrtris Sleeve…which may be end of July or August. My Mom sadly suffered another stroke. I broke 3 toes on my left foot…lenghtwise not normal! I also got told I have heel spurs in both feet along with Arthritis. My Dads not much better as both of his feet are killing him as well.

Gratz on the weight loss and good luck on your test results.
My Mom also suffered several strokes before passing away. It is very tough. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Congrats on the continued weight loss and your surgery! So sorry about all the other incidents, but be happy the toes will be healed and the spurs can be taken care of, and there are things to do about the arthritis. Dad can get his feet checked and find out what to do to help the pain. I don't know what to say about your mother, except I will keep her in my prayers and hope she gets better. HUGS
