SOOOOO tired of doctors offices and tests!!!!

And so the saga continues.  First for Rich. Tomorrow will be the last of the high dosage anti-biotics.  We've seen some improvement in the arm, however their continues to be some swelling, and the wound continues to drain.  Needless to say it's been a bad three weeks!  He also completed one of two ultra-sounds.... but the results of the carotid didn't look too good,  doctor wanted to see him right he's now scheduled for a CT Scan of that area, and then a two day check of the femoral artery!!!

Me?  Well in addition to the EKG coming back abnormal, so did my Eco-Cardiogram, AND the Nuclear Stress Test.  So the doctor says there is a possibility of needing a heart catheter, but before we do that I'm scheduled for a CT, Angiogram of the Coronary arteries - to check for blockage!  That is scheduled for the end of the month. 

Enough of that - my blood pressure is rising!!!!!!!

Since I can't do a whole lot outside....I've spent my time doing some cookin'.  We've had Tuna Noodle, Shepherds Pie, Roast Beef, and today we enjoyed Chicken Parmesan......we also made some Tagalong (Chocolate/Peanut Butter) Cookies and some Peanut Butter Cups!

And we had a very pleasant surprise on Wednesday.  On our way back home from the cardiologist, we decided to stop for dinner.  We had already decided that it would be Denny's or I-HOP..........but we ended up at Hibachi Grill......where we ran into Rick and Judy Haphey!  I used to work with Judy at Thousand Trails Peace River.  It was nice seeing them both, and we promised to let them know when we made a stop to see friends at the park.
