  1. A rolling walker may be dangerous on the cobblestones. It also depends on whether one always needs to hold on to the roller. A rollator has more stability than a simple walker with or with out wheels. My daughter has MS and came to visit. She used a lift one because she was afraid of losing balance with a wheeled one on cobblestone. I think if we had had a rollator it would have ben better.. We attempted to drive her to places where there was flat cement. She can walk short distances because she has an electronic device on her leg. But mostly relies on an arm cane. I think you would have to be strong and go slowly if you used a walker.. Not knowing why she uses one, I am afraid that is all I can recommend. There aren't too many options better than rollator. Look up using a rollator in the snow on google. I think they have suggestions.
  2. I am sure this question has been asked before, but sometimes the information is old . We need a good cement person. Bricks and stones from walls and back yard are loosening, it may require a bit more work so it won't look patched. Thanks!
  3. I was going to pm you but could not. I can get you a lot of material. Could you Pm me and maybe include an email address.
  4. Sose has come when we needed them. It is usually a battery problem. It does take a little maneuvering to find times to come.
  5. SOSE has called every time our alarm goes off by accident and asks for password.
  6. This is reference to out of date food at Super Lake. Dairy is a problem, I reported to whomever yogurt 5 days past. Store wrapped cheese is a problem. I wouldn't know Pancho if he stood in front of me, but the person I reported it to certainly does not sound like the man you all admire.
  7. Nails Baron on Ocampo 185 766 3836 I have gone to her for years. She can do acrylic with gel . Closed Monday
  8. Yes he carries the resound brand. My husband just got it to today. So after 6 hrs...working well. BTW...not cheap
  9. Just a note, I love Dra. Candy but she will be on maternity leave in a bit. So will Dra. Claudia ( eye doctor)
  10. Really? Come on that was hardly advertising. Showing pictures probably satisfied some curiosity.
  11. Don't you wish these scammers would put all their creativity and talent into something worthwhile.?
  12. Chapala There are quite a few stores in town. Also stores that sell artículos de papel
  13. Had lunch at Lety's and parked on the block across the street where Super Lake has its warehouse. No other car in sight. Went to leave and get into my car and the whole front end was pulled off.
  14. I did not give you the sad faces, as you can see I speak my mind.. Certain professionals ( nurses) are educated to assess factors that may contribute to an issue. It may be "I just ate a liter of ice cream " or " I have had nothing to eat for 5 hrs." There are many situations that could be easily taken care of and not require a physician visit. So yes, I agree with you that the process of taking glucose readings does not require a mental giant. But I disagree that just being able to do it means it is safe practice. This seems to be getting a little silly. Do you have a point you are trying to make?? I have made mine and do not want to continue this exchange.
  15. . The tester is told never to give advice but if a reading is very abnormal we have it double checked by another medical person.. If still abnormal recommend to see, a physician. If one does not have one, go to Ajijic clinic. Sorry but disagree on "all things any one can do." Yes, I agree there are different machines, so if you are in a position of testing, one should be familiar with the common ones. I think we are on different pages with regard to no brainer. At LCS we are all professionals and do ask those questions. It actually doesn't make it more complex but assess whether certain behaviors are contributing to the reading and may lesson anxiety I assume you know what influence blood glucose.. . It sounds like you are not in the medical field.
  16. I know we are not NOB , but some of the practices here may explain the chicken issues. First in meat/ dairy there is suppose to be below a freezer line. No product displayed above that.line because it is not the right temperature.. Second, places like Cosco only allow their chicken to stay out on display for so many hours, then they pull them.. Third, I recently had chicken from Walmart ( I didn't buy) and it was so dry, tasted like saw dust. probably from being out so long as it was bought late in the day.. As for freezing meat. Lowering the temperature at night is done here and NOB. But here the temp is way low which may account for the smell. Check ice cream at Superlake and don't be surprised if it is crystallized because it melted and refroze. I also have had to bring it to their attention that some of the dairy products are way expired. I won't buy cheese there because I find the cheese they package often just had the mildew cut off. So how frozen the chicken is when it arrives, how long it is kept "frozen" and the low freezing temp. may play a part.
  17. That is true, but there are different machines and often people have questions about the reading or what to do. The person performing the test may have questions such as when did you last eat, are you on medication, do you have a doctor, do you test yourself etc.?
  18. LCS would like to provide glucose monitoring for health day in October. If you are, were, a health care provider, please pm me ASAP Thanks
  19. I pm'd you and it said you cannot receive messages. My question was how did you get tickets?
