I saw my cardiologist yesterday afternoon for clearance from him for my surgery. No signing off from him until I pass another stress test and have an ultrasound of the carotid arteries. So frustrating. I have the ultrasound Monday morning and the stress test on Wednesday morning. This doctor is a stress test freak. I have had so many stress tests since I have been seeing him for the last 3 years. Too many to count on one hand. Just a little bump in the road. I am tough though and I am going to make it. I am wearing my t-shirt this morning that says “Never Underestimate the Power of this Woman.”
Things got better last evening though. My nephew Mike and his wife Celeste stopped by on their way to sightsee in Springfield to see me. What a very nice treat!! My daughter and son in law came over too and we all went to Kouri’s http://www.kourispub.com/ for supper. I had catfish, coleslaw, corn on the cob and a baked potato. We all had a nice visit and then Mike and Celeste went back to Springfield to spend the night and do some more sightseeing today
Thursday night I had the opportunity to speak with an old blogging friend from the Boston area. It was great! I have spoken to quite a few of my blogging friends throughout my blogging years (2005 till the present) but I have only met 2 of them. One of them Patsy, from West Virginia and the other one was Stephen from East Peoria which is right down the road from me. Quite a few of my blogging friends have been with me from the beginning.
My sis in WV Rae scanned me 18 photos a couple of nights ago. These were old photos that my mom had in a picture frame. One of the photos is of all of my sisters including me. I love those old pictures Rae. I hope you find some more.
From left to right. Sisters, Ebby, Chris, Corrie, Rae and Beth. Not really sure of the date of this picture although it must have been taken right before I met Jim as I have on an old boyfriend’s class ring. And I see I had my hair blonde on the top and sides.
I hope you all have a peaceful weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
