You just can't fight genetics.

Here I am Again!!

August seems like it's Flying by.....I've had soooo Much going on the last few weeks with the MR's health, then my MIL, and again with the BIL (shhh don't really care about his crap).

Lets start with the MR....he's had a few issues before we became MR & MRS with the Ticker (2009) at which time I almost lost him...he ended up with a stint being put in the Widow Maker Artery. He was very lucky he didn't die during that time. A LOT of PT, time off work meds, revamped and finally he recouped. Though there were lifestyle changes done and he did improve You just can't fight genetics.
Now again it's reared it's ugly head yet again....he had been having heartburn, acid reflux, etc.....after consulting with 'Web MD' [I hate that site] he continued to eat Tums/Rolaids like they were candy until Yep pains in his chest & arm sent him to the ER from work on Friday....

After everything was said and done at the they couldn't find anything heart related for his chest & arm pain, but suspected it was his gall bladder that was giving him problems so we went on home. He went to work the next day [Saturday] had a couple more 'mini' attacks but since he was told it wasn't heart related he continued on...But Then Sunday morning was a Whole Other Story...he felt like crap, had some discomfort in his chest and just lousy feeling. We went to his family Dr on Monday....he informed us the Gall Bladder NEVER causes pain in your arm. He did order a gall bladder & Upper GI test and also managed to get us a heart Dr appointment the very next day..Thank You Jesus!!
Well the heart Dr really hated being second he orders another stress test (the MR just had one in March)....

So within a 2wk time period (as in 14 days) here's a re-cap in a nutshell:
     3 Doc's = 1 ER, 1 family & 1 Heart
     1 ER visit
     2 Dr's appointments
     4 medical tests = 1 GallBladder, 1 Upper GI, 1 Stress Test, + Blood Work
     1 Heart Cath
     2 Stints in the Widow Maker Artery!!!

Physical Therapy and some much needed time off is the current future plan....

My Happy New Year!

Here we go with yet another New Year and I've spent it with the MR sick (as in still from Christmas) this makes 2 years in a row...and this year there's and Different Ball drop?? WTH? Yes there was a ball but it was dwarfed by the Huge Clock doing a countdown...You can check it out here ok so this is a change I wasn't expecting oh well I just gotta let it go, gave the MR some meds, tuck him in and pop the Bubbly..(being the BAD Blogger I forgot to take a Pic).....that's right it's New Years and I still celebrated even if it's just me on the couch watching a pitiful looking dwarfed ball drop, Awww MIDNIGHT!! I call all my kids, grand kids & the Papaw wish them Happy New Year. Time to move on to a New Year, New Month, New Day...I GOT THIS!!

Today was spent with my runner daughter and some friends at a Brand New Race opportunity in Historic Midway Ky. What a turn out it was...compared to the Resolution 5Mile Run yesterday this is Amazing..300+ runners & walkers attended the Frozen Rails 5K.

And of all things we had a train come through Just Before The Race...good omen?? for the New Year?? I say Yes! My new friend Laura Coombs was there and got everyone ready with some warm up exercises then it was 5K time....I videoed the race start due to---again 300+ Runners/ can find finish line photos here, here, and here.  All in all it was a Great Day the start of a New Year.
