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