and if I'm not too tired when I am done here, I will post it. Otherwise I will wait until tomorrow to introduce Cayden to the blog world!
I don't know how I get so busy, but sometimes it seems that I have no time. I don't know how in the world I ever worked full time, cared for children, and kept a house clean and laundry done! I no longer work outside the home and my children are all grown and out on their own but it seems like I am always hauling some child around in my car or carrying one on my hip. Don't get me wrong.....I wouldn't change a thing. I love being with my grandkids. I think they help keep me young.....or make me older faster. I can't decide which!
Today Hubby had an appointment at the cardiologists office for a Myocardial Perfusion Scan. Sounds impressive, doesn't it. Basically it is a stress test on a treadmill walking at increasingly faster speeds and higher inclines. So it feels equivalent to running up a mountain side! This is followed by a scan of your heart after radio active isotopes have been injected into your body via an IV. Mind you, they must transport this substance in a steel container from one area to the next so as not to contaminate the environment, but then it is injected into the human body. Sounds bizarre to me, but I have been going through this same test every year for the past 10 years at least.
Hubby did very well. He made it quite a while into stage 4, which is much better than I have ever done. The farthest I have ever made it was just into stage 3, and I didn't last very long there. Of course, I have failed every stress test that I have ever taken and because of the failures had to have a heart cath done within a few weeks of taking the stupid test. But I'm sure that hubby passed. I kind of feel like a big wimp for never making it as far as he did. After all, the heart attack he had was a massive one and he is lucky to be alive. The heart attacks I had were never as severe as his.....and I just wimpped out on those darn tests. He says it's because (and I quote) "I am younger than you!" So much for making me feel better about it!
Maybe I will just decide to never take that stupid test again! Can't fail it if I don't take it......sounds like a plan to me!
