I haven't been on in quite awhile.
A lot has happened since I last checked in with y'all.
At the end of last year we moved home to Alaska. Then in June we were out riding 4 wheelers on the beach and I flipped mine and shattered my kneecap, resulting in having to have surgery to insert screws and wire to hold my knee cap together. During the surgery they discovered a growth in my throat. So in October I had another surgery to remove 2 growths from my throat.
My husband bless his heart took care of me thru all this. Between his frozen and fast food dinners and having my knee immobilized for almost 3 months my diabetes is not under the best control. The doctor wants me to get back in control, so I have "come home".
I learnt so much from this site when first diagnosed and received so much support. I know this site was a big part of my sucess, so I am back to get this monster back under control.

Sorry to learn of your medical challenges, from the accident to the "growths". in your throat. I pray they were non-cancerous

God's best to you and yours

Thank you, James!
No cancer, thank God. They said they were epiglottic cysts at the base of my tongue.
