HI!

TODAY IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY..............SUNNY, BRIGHT.............COOL AND CRISP!

THE HOUSE IS QUIET.....AND ALL IS IN ORDER..........

JIMMY IS AT WORK, AND HE CALLED ME A LITTLE WHILE AGO, TO SEE HOW THINGS WERE............

HE IS UP AT 6AM...............THE ALARM CLOCK GOES OFF....HE SHOWERS, TAKES PRINCE FOR A WALK, AND FEEDS THE CATS...................THEN, BEFORE HE LEAVES, HE SITS IN A CHAIR NEXT TO ME, AND RUBS MY LEGS AND BACK...........I AM PRETTY MUCH ASLEEP THROIGH ALL OF THIS!

EVERYNIGHT WHEN WE SLEEP, JIMMY IS ON HIS SIDE, HOLDING ME IN HIS ARMS..............IT IS THE SPOON POSITION.............HE HOLDS  ME VERY TIGHTLY, AND KISSES ME THROUGHTOUT THE NIGHT, RUBBING MY BACK AND LEGS, AND THINGS LIKE THAT..............HE ALWAYS TELLS ME THAT WHILE HE WAS IN PRISON FOR 3.6 YEARS, THAT HE ONLY THOUGHT ABOUT LAYING IN BED WITH ME......

MISTY. OUR CAT, LAYS BETWEEN US...........MAINLY IN JIMMY'S ARMS...................JIMMY ALWAYS BRINGS JIMBO INTO THE BED, SO HE WILL NOT FEEL LEFT OUT...............AND PRINCE SLEEPS UNDER JIMMY'S SIDE OF THE BED.......................EVERYONE IS COMFORTABLE AND CONTENT!

YESTERDAY WAS AN INTERESTING DAY!

THE DOG WASHER CAME HERE IN THE AFTERNOON, WITH HIS VAN, AND PRINCE GOT HIS BATH AND NAILS CLIPPED, AND EARS CLEANED....................HE SMELLS SO GOOD, AND LOOKS SO NICE!......................PRINCE ENJOYED IT, AND HAD FUN WITH THE MALE DOG WASHER.......................AFTER ALL, IT HAS BEEN AROUND 4 YEARS SINCE THE DOG GOT A COMPLETE BATH.......................WE HAD THE CATS GROOMED A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, AND WE WILL HAVE THEM DONE AGAIN,SOON.

YESTERDAY I HAD A STRESS TEST....IT WAS AN ADENOSINE STRESS TEST.....I DID NOT HAVE TO WALK ON THE TREADMILL............................I WAS UP AT 6AM, AND TO THE CARDIAC CENTER BY 7AM...................THE TEST LASTED FROM 7AM, UNTIL 11AM.................JIMMY WAS WITH ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

THE TEST I HAD WAS CALLED AN "ADENOSINE STRESS TEST."...............I WAS FIRST INJECTED WITH  RADIO-ISOTOPES.............THEN, AS I LAY ON THE TABLE, THE DOCTOR INJECTED ME WITH"ADENOSINE,"  WHICH IS A DRUG WHICH WILL INCREASE YOUR HEART RATE AS IF YOU ARE EXERCISING....I THINK MY HEART RATE WAS BROUGHT TO 200/MINUTE....................IT WAS A LITTLE SCARY...............WHEN THE DOCTOR SAID, YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS MORE.......I FELT EXHAUSTED...........THEN HE SAID 15 SECONDS MORE...............I FELT TO ALMOST FAINT.................IT IS A VERY FUNNY FEELING TO BE BROUGHT TO THE POINT AS IF YOU ARE EXERCISING..............JIMMY WAS IN THE ROOM AT THE TIME...THE CARDIOLOGIST, THE NURSE , AND THE RADIOLOGIST WERE THERE MONITORING ME............X--RAYS OF MY HEART WERE TAKEN...............EKG'S DONE................

THE REASON I HAD THIS TEST IS THAT PREVIOUS CARDIAC TESTING HAD SHOWN I HAVE A COMPLETE RIGHT BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCK IN MY HEART..............THIS KIND OF BLOCKAGE HAS TO DO WITH THE ELECTICAL ACTIVITY IN THE HEART................I TAKE LASIX EVERYDAY, AS I TEND TOWARD CHF, IF I'M NOT CAREFUL............

THE BEST PART IS THAT MY DOCTOR (CARDIOLOGIST), WHO IS THE BEST IN NEW JERSEY, SAID THAT MY HEART IS STRONG, AND THAT THE BUNDLE BRANCH BLOCKAGE IS STABLE........

AND SO, THAT WAS MY DAY!

AND THEN IN THE EVENING, WE WENT TO A RESTAURANT CALLED "THE JAVA MOON CAFE."  WE  HAVE BEEN THERE SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE................WE RELAXED AND HAD DELICIOUS SALAD, SOUP,TUNA WRAPS, AND CAPPOCHINO.

THERE WAS AN "ANGEL CARD " READER THERE..............A PSYCHIC.................SHE READ OUR ANGELS CARDS, AND WAS VERY INTERESTING...............EVEN MORE INTERESTING WAS THAT THAT THE "CRYSTAL CARD" SHOWED UP TWICE FOR  ME..............SHE SAID THAT CARD INDICATES I AM PSYCHIC!...............WELL, THAT WAS NOT SOMETHING I HAD TO BE TOLD!...................I EXPLAINED TO HER THAT I HAD TAKEN ON THE NAME "CRYSTAL MOON"  OVER 10 YEARS AGO...............AND THAT AMONGST OTHER THINGS, I ALWAYS WEAR A CRYSTAL............

BYE FOR NOW!

MAY YOU ALL BE AT PEACE IN THIS WORLD......................

...........................................................................FRAN

I had that same stress test last January and it thew me into atrial fib, so had to go to Hospital for three days . They tried to convert me with meds, but couldn't so they stopped my heart and then shocked it into a normal rhythm. It was scarey!!  I also have to take lasix daily! We have a lot in common--both nurses too!
