Wishes for another successful sur- gery are sent your way, Bey. Lavonne Conner is very happy to have gotten her release from her doctor after recently having a surgical repair done. While she was amazed with the wonders of modern medicine and the ease they can perform surgery in today's world, she was even more amazed to discover that after twenty years of marriage, husband Jim has great hidden talents as a great cook and housekeeper! She is very thankful for the excellent care he gave her while she recovered these past couple of weeks. She even felt spunky enough to get her Christmas decorating completed already. Jim is also thankful as he recently received back the test results from his VA doctor and all of his testing came back looking great this time. Jim is proof positive that if you actually follow the correct diet and eat the right things for diabetes, yo u will find the key for lowering your blood sugars. Good job, Jim!

Judy made a delicious lemon meringue cheesecake to complete the wonderful meal. Tom and Judy are enjoying hour-long walks in the morning.
