4th Of July & Results (The Medical Kind)
Friday, July 05, 2013
First of all, I hope that you all had a lovely holiday! I got to sleep a little bit extra, which was much appreciated. My BF is pretty sick with some sort of summer cold so I made us soup for lunch. We drove out to see his parents and his dad made fresh farm bought corn, coal fire grilled wings (not fried at all!), and his mom made this awesome strawberry/cool whip dessert. No chips, dip, burgers or hotdogs for me and I was strangely AOK with that! His dad’s coal smoked wings are really something special. His parents have been trying to eat healthy as well and we all noted how much LESS we ate than the last time we had a dinner like this. I think we were all pretty proud of ourselves! We came home and watched a ton of fireworks from our deck. All in all a nice relaxing day!
I am working from home today. We’re having some server issues today (surprise!) so pretty much everyone is logging off early. It does NOT feel like a Friday to me I am all out of whack. I may head to the pool on my “lunch break” haha. I have a nice beach scented candle lit, a big glass of ice water, in comfy clothes. Ahhhh yes. I just need to stay OUT of the pantry!
I got the first of my two heart test results today. I love modern medicine don’t get me wrong, but the PROCESS around it sometimes drives me crazy! When my doctor said they were implementing this new online record/communication system, I thought it was awesome. They upload your results, it emails you, you know faster. BUT I can’t speak doctor! So I get this test result and start googling everything and convincing myself I’m in big trouble. The summary said “Normal - Fair” so I should just stick with that right? Nope – I am fixated on the fact that they found trace regurgitations in two of my valves. What does that mean?! I know what google says… oy. I am most interested in the results of the holter test so hopefully that will come through soon. I’m sure that I am FINE or they would have had me in a hospital or something by now… right?!
We have like 9 days until we leave for Mexico. Everything is happening so quickly! I am definitely heading out to buy bug spray and sunscreen (the two things people have recommended the most!) My poor BF is pretty sick, so I have been taking my vitamins and zinc spray religiously. I think we are in for another quiet weekend at home, which might be a great idea. Is it too early to start packing?!?
Anyways – that is all I have for now. I hope you all had a great fourth and have a great weekend as well!
