It's Friday Already????

Wow.  Time seems to be flying by.  I'm glad that the weekend is upon us.  'twas a busy week.

We went into Slidell on Wednesday.  Spent hours at Northshore Hospital.  They concentrated on Dom's heart this time around.

He got an Echo Cardiogram.... similiar to an ultrasound.  Absolutely fascinating to see the chambers of his heart, his valves, etc.  Modern medicine is so amazing.

Then, onto his Stress Test.  His resting heart rate was 53.  They wanted him to get up to 133.  The doctor had him go up to 127 and said that he was pleased.

Finally, they attached a 24 hour Holter monitor on him, and we got the hell out of there.

Had a quick sandwich at Arby's, stopped by his ma's for a visit, then stopped to see the gang at the L&C on the way home.  Dom didn't get any sleep because of the monitor... has a hard time sleeping on his back.

Yesterday, Thursday, saw us going back to Slidell to return the heart monitor.  Three round-trip drives to Slidell this week @ 100 miles.....  300 miles.  

After the hospital stop, we met Al and Ada at Los Tres Amigos.  Had the top down all day.  Had gotten up to 90 degrees here.  The 2 Sangrias really hit the spot on a hot day.  The food was delicious.  I wouldn't hesitate to return to the joint.  (Went to the one on Gause for the first time).

Headed home and tried to unwind.  No "medical stuff" until Thursday's Tulane Cancer Center appointment.  *she sez hopefully*
