and the beat goes on... (we hope)


video


DH and I attended another of our grandsons' high school football games Friday night. Their team didn't win, but it was fun non-the-less. We go to watch one grandson play his baritone sax in the marching band and the other play offensive tackle on the football team. Nothing else really matters (to me anyway). We only see our boys out on the field (a form of tunnel-vision I guess). 

And we have a confession to make. We sat on the opposing team's side for the first quarter. It was hot and that side was shady. The sun was beating down on our team's side. I guess if we were younger, we would have 'sucked it up', but being the age we are, we chose to play it safe and sit in the shade (off by ourselves) until the sun went down... then we switched over.

And today I spent the whole day (9 - 4) at the pottery studio throwing *goblets*.  Don't know where I'm going with this, but I'm enjoying the experience of trying something new. 

Oh, I also made a batch of home-made nutty granola for DH and I to healthy snack on.  It's really good and a favorite with my daughter and her work buddies in San Antonio (and DH apparently). She tried to convince her dad to part with some of it, but he refused... acting like the Soup Nazi on the old Seinfield show with "no soup for you!".... saying "no granola for you!". So I guess I'll have to make another batch soon and mail it off.







Quick Update on my Cardiologist appt Thurs: All went well. Nurse collected info and did another EKG (they hadn't received the one my primary physician's office was supposed to have sent). It showed the same abnormality apparently as the first one... and the computer had printed "possible myocardial infarction" on the top. However, the Cardiologist said that this was not always accurate, but it, my age,  and chest pains warranted further tests which are scheduled for Monday. I did have another episode Thursday night... almost exactly the same as the first. Reported it Friday morning and was told to take a baby aspirin each night before bed until my tests on Monday (and of course call 911 or go to emergency room if warranted).

It's been a most interesting week...

    1. I think moving to the shade was a good move. If the heat didn't get me, the glare from the sun would have...

  2. That tunnel vision thing is a normal side effect of being a grandparent.
    Will be thinking of you as you go through further tests. Hope all turns out well.

    1. As for the tunnel vision, I figured as much, Olga.

  3. We hope the beat goes on for a long, long, long time yet! Fingers/paws crossed for Monday's tests, we hope they show nothing untoward.

    The granola looks yummy! Next time make a double batch to start. LOL.

    1. Thanks, Kim. The problem with making a double batch is that I only have one pan that fits it perfectly. But I will do another batch soon.

  4. Glad you're okay and probably didn't have a heart attack. That granola looks scrumptious! :-)

    1. It is really good. It's full of toasted oats, pecans, cashews, almonds, macadamia nuts, and maple syrup.

  5. I would have sat in the shade, too! I'm sure your cardiologist will get to the bottom of your mystery.

    1. Yes, I think it was the smart thing to do... although it felt a bit strange as I was wearing our team's colors (but we did sit off to the side).

  6. I hope the Monday tests show that nothing is seriously wrong. Remember not to worry until there is something proven to be "worry-worth"

    1. Oh, I agree, vic. I'm not sure that there's ever an advantage to worrying. The philosophy that has served me well has been "what is... is... and I can handle it".
