the day after Christmas... 2021
Even though we had a quiet Christmas, there was much to do with cooking, baking, putting gifts together, etc. Spoke and texted back and forth with kids, family, friends, etc. during the day and had coffee and rum cake with youngest son and his family in the evening... and exchanged a few presents. All in all, a good day!
We did get both our AGA fixed and the Breville toaster oven fryer delivered before Christmas... so we were in good shape. I have tried the new toaster oven for toast, begals, and pizza... works fine. Haven't tried to actually cook in it (made our roast in the AGA Christmas day). But curious to see how it air frys... not something I'm familiar with as we never fry foods here. If anyone has any comments concerning air frying, I'm happy to hear them.
And I'm going to add a few of our granddaughter's 9 year old pics.... (which were taken recently and just sent to us)
I find it so hard to believe she's growing up so fast...
Since I haven't posted this yet... and it's already Monday afternoon, I will report that I had the CT Scan of my heart done this morning. Haven't gotten the results yet... but it all went well. I did feel a bit shaky after the procedure, but think it was due to the nitroglycerin they give you during the test.
I've had the iodine contrast before in other CT's and outside of the flush of heat after administering, that has never bothered me. The nitroglycerin that is put under your tongue gave me a slight headache... and possibly the shaky feeling after... Hopefully I will get the results in the next few days.
Tuesday morning: Got the basic results this morning, both on my health portal and by phone from the Cardiologist's office. My CT apparently was all good... no blockages, etc. The doctor will go over it all and explain at my next appointment in 2 weeks. He is sending the results to my family physician. All sounds good to me... guessing the episodes of heart pounding and high bp I have sometimes in the early morning are due to the valve leakage and the pvc's - and are all a part of 'old age'...
Closing this now as it's turned into a 3 day post. Want to mention that with the numbers of cases due to omicron rising, our son made us promise that when we went to the hospital for testing, that we wear all our personal protection equipment (mask, gloves, face shield) which we did... and although it seemed a bit of an overkill, the hospital personnel told us it was a very good idea.
Really closing now: Happy New Year 2022 to all of you! Hopefully it will be better than the last 2... but I'm honestly not too optimistic about that. Still... best wishes for a happy healthy 2022!
