Congrats! Glow ON!

Hey, are you anywhere near San Juan Island? A friend of my friend from Freshops lives out there.

Both on islands in the Puget Sound. Not really close.

Great news! I wish I knew what a normal stress test was, every time I have one they end up poking around in my heart...

Of course I probably just bit off more than I can chew and my BP's not liking it, but I'm right in the middle of attempt to rehab a condo so I can move into it this weekend. Been working on it the last couple of weeks. I originally thought I would have the month of June to do this but found it I have to be out by the 7th, or else I have to pay more money. So I've been cleaning and painting and have to redo my kitchen and bathroom as well as pack my stuff in the lost and get it moved by SUnday.

So that's why I haven't been online much this week. I had to use vacation time or else I'd lose it and marybeth took it off as well, so we're cranking away.

I really wish I could have eased back into life a little slowly after surgery, but it's not looking like it is meant to be.

Revvy, you need some buddies to come over and help get that stuff done! I wish I lived closer.

Took three weeks, 6 appointments and who knows how many doctors and techs and they decided that my heart is fine and the problem is that I'm just a little bit nuts. Well, I could've saved a lot of time and money and told them the second part.

Isn't that always the case mate? Best laid plans of mice and men...

Just take it easy and listen to your body.

I've got a close friend who went the local small clinic the other day because her left arm hurt... They ran thousands of dollars worth of test against her heart to find nothing wrong. She's about a buck ten with no family history of heart problems (which she told them a hundred times) but they did it all anyhow before they decided she pulled muscle.
Oh well, peace of mind is great and they let her know that her heart is perfect still at 50!
