We have good news! Claudia 's cath went well, she does have some blockage in one artery, but not enough that her cardiologist thinks any kind of procedure is necessary. He plans to give her medication for the angina, and hopefully this will take care of the angina pain, etc. I do feel these angina attacks are at least partially responsible for her feeling so weak and washed out. I am so hoping the new medication will work for her, and she can begin to feel better.
This has been another busy day for me, my plans with my friend Denise didn't work out after all, due to some things that came up on her end, and also mine. We just postponed the plans, and will follow through with them at a later date....maybe Halloween. My niece, Leslie (that's more like my daughter) called last night, and told me she wanted to take me to lunch and spend part of the day with me today, since today is my birthday. Of course, I love spending time with her; we went to this huge outlet mall near my house and did some serious shopping. I bought a "hoodie" for myself, got a birthday present for a friend, and also got one more Christmas present out of the way. I am really making progress with my Christmas shopping, I think I am about two thirds of the way finshed. Thank goodness. I like to be about done by Thanksgiving, including have the gifts wrapped. I always finish up the day after Thanksgiving, because the sales then are incredible. I just hate having to fight the crowds, but I have found if I can be at the stores by 6:00 a.m. or shortly thereafter it is well worth my time.
I have tons to do this afternoon....I don't know how in the world I ever had time to work before I retired 2 1/2 yrs ago. One of my friend's told me recently that apparently working cramped my lifestyle because I have found since I retired that I never have enough time to go and to do all the things I want to. I believe in living life to the fullest each day that God gives me, and I have enjoyed my retirement so much. I have had people tell me they get bored, and wonder how in the world they have time to be bored!
Maybe you folks won't have to put up with me too much longer, I am not as entertaining as Claudia when it comes to blogging. And, when you are around her it is the same way, she is a hoot and we always have such good times together. I sometimes wonder how we can enjoy each other so much, since we are so totally different. We have had some good times, for sure. Until she returns I will keep you informed as to her health, etc.
Everyone have a blessed day!
