Hi all! I have so much to say that I could write a book. I definitely need to start updating more often and catching up with alerts. I just can't keep up with everything but I'm trying.
My BF saw the doctor yesterday. The dr. who did the stents is not doing the surgery. Each doctor has specialties. The surgeon is the chief of staff. He sees him Tues and will have the date scheduled. There will be one bypass....the artery is 90% blocked and couldn't be stented because of the location. I'm seeing my doctor Monday for my yearly check up and plan to have another stress test done. It's been 4 years since my last one.
I'll save the news about the "three stooges" of mine for later.
I'm walking 4,200 steps a day which is about 2 miles. It takes 30 min. According to my BF's cardiac notebook, which is extensive, that is what I should be doing for my age. I've cut back on the cheeses, etc. I'm eating steamed veggies and chicken for lunch. I've only lost 5 lbs. in a month but that's good enough. LOL...yesterday we had pizza and a cake for a guy who was retiring at work. So.....I totally blew it.
I'm off for my walk in a minute or two. Many of you commented that my place looked rural and sort of scary. Actually, (hope I'm not jinxing myself) it is very safe. We rarely lock our doors. It's like a step back in time here.
Anyway, one more thing, and this cracks me up. Compressed time has been approved for our division. So, am I starting the first of September on 10 hr days???????? I think I'll do a poll on this one because y'all know I've been fussing for two years about working five days a week so here goes..... (An explanation for those who are confused....I worked 4 10 hr days for 8 years. I had every Wed off. Two years ago, I was promoted to a new division but had to go back to the traditional 5 day work week. I have never stopped fussing about that since that time.)
I'm off for my walk. The weather is hot today so I'm going to float in my pool...whoo hoo!
