“…things happen when you least expect them. Things that can change your whole life.”
Time to walk…gotta keep those pounds off! Today was a shortie… just an hour as we have the doctor to see! Come visit the Christmas Walking site to see what I saw!
So we are off to my doc bring and early taking a short detour to pickup some paper along the way. I should have known something was amiss when we had to park in the basement…first time in 20 years!
The results show I have a totally blocked internal left carotid artery meaning the other two arteries are picking up the slack. We got sent to a neurosurgeon immediately and are expecting to do a CT-Scan later this week to see what the plan of attack it. Damn, just when things are looking up!
Tomorrow morning I head for a blood test to make sure the stuff they put in the arteries to take the CT-Scan will be OK. Then, we are off to the hospital for the CT-Scan which will be electronically sent to the surgeon to see what the plan it…cold be surgery before Christmas…who knows?
We went to Mama’s for a late lunch (3:00 PM after hours waiting in doctors offices) and had a great lunch. I did biscuts and gravy with two frieds boneless chickens on top while Sue enjoyed a veggie sandwich which was apparently pretty good!
So that was the bad news…here is the good news! Our two great grand babies in New Hampshire!
After returning home, I paid some bills online and then Echo’ed Lisa and we decided it was time to get everybody hooked up. So I called Robin and she fired up her Echo Show and voila, we be connected!
So, we now have Amy/Joe, Lisa/Pete, and Robin/Bob… My goal it to get Zachary, Jonathan, and Colleen on-board so we have our kids and older grandkids! Love the family.
We watched a Christmas movie and then crashed about 11:00 PM. We attempted to watch two other Christmas movies but they were either childish or too-slow…
