Hi kayaker,...wow,...I think perhaps our dialogue may be getting too wordy (voluminous) for some readers, as they are likely to just overlook such, just a note to both of us to maybe keep things somewhat condensed...I know that's challenging for us wordsmiths - just a guidleline. I may address only portions of your post, trying to keep things concise as possible. A lot to surf thru :surf:
Most definitely those kind of losses affect us! You had mentioned she was diabetic? She or you may already know this, and forgive me for saying the obvious if so: it has been found, scientifically, that dark chocolate (an ounce a day) repairs the damage done to blood vessels caused by diabetes.
I don't know if she is Type 1 or 2, but there are other methods too... if the need is to lower and/or stabilize blood sugar. Let me know if you are interested in any of these methods.
I too have been diagnosed with diabetes, which I have always claimed would resolve, and the readings taken by the doctor have been normal over the past two years.
All the best to you.
Bless you, Kayaker. I too await for His rule over the entire planet/world.
