When they kept pushing us to the living room, Tim asked why the kitchen was unsatisfactory and that we were there by their request and at the request of Dr. Tom. If they wanted our help, why were they making us sit in an area that would not be conducive to working with the cookbooks and an easy place to write. The wife carefully explained that the two teenagers would need to fix their meal before too long, and they did not like to entertain in the kitchen.
Allen quickly explained where he was at and I said I could take over. With that Dr. Tom, Tim, Allen, and James went to look at what Allen did with his blood glucose readings. James's wife asked if all the measuring was necessary. I asked if she was interested in helping her husband manage diabetes. She said yes, and I said we would be available to answer questions and be there via email or telephone to answer questions. I asked her if she had a scale similar to Allen's and she admitted that she did not. I said I would send her some information and URLs to let them look at different electronic scales. I asked if money was going to be a problem and she said no. I continued that she would use the scale quite a bit for six months or longer and then occasionally after that.
Jill asked James how much money he would need for supplies and then they decided that they could afford that and would order them as they could over the next few weeks. Tim had pulled up the blog about digital scales and said he would send the links in an email. Jill said that would help them decide and be able to order one. Tim opened one link for her to look at and she said that one looks good and the price is reasonable.
With that, we called it an evening and we pickup up what we had brought and Tim took me home.
