Ouch! That Hurt!

Fact: Christmas day is the most common day of the year for heart attacks to happen.

We beat the roosters up this fine morning as Paul had to be at the cardiologists office at 8:00 AM in Los Alamitos.  He went for a “nuclear stress test”.  A nuclear stress test uses a small amount of radioactive material (tracer) and an imaging machine to create pictures showing the blood flow to your heart. The test measures blood flow while you are at rest and during activity, showing areas with poor blood flow or damage in your heart.

Monday we get the results!

We were there for three hours and departed about 11:00 AM and headed home.  I took a quick nap and so did Mary; 5:00 AM is too early for us anymore.

We did manage to go to the gym in the afternoon and then do some errands including the UPS Store and Post Office.

The chemicals they put into me made me “sick” or should I say hungry?  I told Mary that the doctor suggested a hamburger after the procedure should I feel sick.  In An Out, here we come.

It reminded me of the time Mary and I stayed at an Elvis-themed hotel. The burgers in the restaurant were for people who Love Meat Tender.

Mary also served up some of her famous bean soup that she had in the slow cooker all day; it was out of this world delicious.  I had three bowls before I stopped.

We came home and watched another Tom Selleck movie before crashing.   This was a TV movie series about him, as Jessie Stone,  being a sheriff in a small New England town.

Tom Selleck does a magnificent job!!

Our TV viewing is not set for a week!

We crashed about 9:00 PM and I was out like a light not waking until about 2:30 AM.

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
