First, the photos at the top and bottom of this post are the work of Jo Crebbins, a gifted photographer who lives in Englewood, Florida. Her work just blows me away and gives me a little piece of Florida.
Next….Day One at Anderson….Cardiology..EKG and Echocardiogram. Feels as if we never left here. The good news of the day is that my heart is just fine and ready for surgery. That is good news. Evidently radiation and chemo can do things to your heart…even ten or twenty years down the road. So this is good, very good. Passed the first test with flying colors. Just a couple more to go.
Flunked a couple others though…Chemobrain? Too much on my mind? Who knows. We went to our 11:00 Apple class to learn about the new Spreadsheet program (Numbers) except (oops) I had scheduled us for 10:00. Lucky us….there was someone free at 11:00 who could work with us. He lost me after the first few steps but Jerry could follow it all. Not sure he could REMEMBER it all, but he did understand it all which was a lot more than I could do.
We had planned to go to a lecture at the Integrative Medicine Center this evening….Someone speaking on the role of meditation and mindfulness on living with life limiting illness. It meant “hanging out” after meeting with the cardiologist so we picked up smoothies (packed with protein) and went up to the Overlook to relax and kill a little time. (Like we hadn’t killed enough time all day waiting for blood work, an EKG, an echocardiogram and a meeting with the doctor) We were in the car heading over to the other building when I checked and (oops) the lecture is next Monday. Obviously we headed back to our home away from home. We’ll give the lecture another try on Monday. (and yes, my husband is a saint)
So we have a quiet evening at home. I’m watching at couple old Parenthood episodes before we start watching basketball. And tomorrow we head to Flower Mound. I’m expecting to FREEZE at soccer games on Saturday. I’ll go prepared…dress in layers the way I do for yoga!
Don’t you just love these little ones?
