Matters Of The Heart

Well, it wasn’t good news from my cardiologist this afternoon. The CT scan of my ticker a few days ago has revealed that two of the three main arteries going into or from the heart have very bad blockages. Hence, the doctor ordered STAT what I think is called a catheterization which will lead to two stents likely be inserted into the affected areas.

Talk about a big shocker! I am a bit scared, not afraid to say so either. However, this procedure is common and has a great success rate so I am optimistic that this will turn out fine. Speaking with my family about this on the phone, people they know that have had this procedure always feel much better after it is done. My dad is getting a stent next month.

In the end, this is up to God and his plan for me, my faith is strong. I trust in Him! I’m not looking for sympathy by mentioning this, it’s private stuff but I simply want to share this with my online friends that I enjoy so much!

Return Of The Smoke Fog

On my way to the doctor’s appointment this morning, I notice that the air smelt a bit weird. Getting on the road I noticed that it was unfortunately the smoke fog, it hasn’t been here in a good while. Those damn fires have been burning for months it seems, how totally sad.

Here is a set of photos taken very quickly as I was heading south on the two-fifteen freeway. Basically point-and-shoot photo, no time to focus. On a different note, yours truly made a big mistake yesterday and this morning which precluded me from having this test done.

I can’t take my Metformin the day before or the morning of the test. Nor can I take it three days after the test. Metformin has a habit of reacting terribly with the Iodine the technician injects you with. Dammit! So, I’ve rescheduled the test for Thursday. Dammit! 😂😂
