Reason to celebrate..................

because I had a stress-echo test this morning and Dr Ford says my heart is very healthy. Not a thing wrong. Whoo hooo! I have a spastic esophagus and when that thing goes to being spastic I feel like I am having a heart attack. The pain shoots from the sides of my neck straight up to both ears. I'll never forget the first time it happened. I was working at Trees N Trends in the shipping and receiving office. It was during the time that Mom was getting worse and I was very worried about what was going to happen. I literally got under my desk (I guess I thought I could hide from the world) and did Lamaze breathing until it stopped.

Anyway, since I have met my total out of pocket on my medical insurance it is time for any and all tests to be completed. When the doctor gave me the news that I was heart healthy I was so grateful. My father had a stroke in his 50's which caused him to have to give up his dental career. I am very mindful of this and am sure to have tests ran regularly to make sure things are doing OK. Tomorrow I am having testing for diabetes. Just to be sure.

I wasn't able to ride my bike last night due to severe storms that hit just about 6pm. They were not over until after dark so perhaps tonight I will have better luck. This weekend we are supposed to have temps in the 70's and low 80's! Oh my. I don't know what we did to deserve this great July weather but we'll take it! Abby is coming to the country this weekend so with my precious here and the wonderful weather it should be a great weekend. We are thinking of going to the horse auction Saturday night. We haven't been since last summer. Abby loves to see all of the horses, especially when they come into the ring. Of course, my camera will be my new appendage so I will be sure to have plenty of pictures.

I took this picture the other night on mine and the girl's evening walk to see the garden.


I hope everyone has a fantastic evening.

I'm glad that you are well heart wise. Nice flowers growing. I remember that those do really well in the garden. Have a great day.

Wow, I wish our weather was like yours! We've got mega drought here and haven't gone under 100+ degrees in I don't know how long! Have a great weekend.

Got to take care of that heart!
Glad to hear the good news.

I'm catching up on your blog. I was away from blogland, exhausted from work, and not spending much time online.
BUT...I got a week of vacation, and feel rejuvenated.
I'm glad your tests prove that you're healthy as a horse, honey!

I'm glad the tests went well and you're smart to check everything out. It's easy for us to deny things until they get much worse.

Enjoy your weekend.
