My grandson woke up this morning with a temperature. No school for him today.

Another quiet day at work. Hoping this quiet lull is short lived. Relaxing after work with my feet up in the recliner.

I tried to take a short nap earlier in the afternoon. Forget it. The phone kept ringing. Why don't I unplug it or not answer? Because I have a son that has had eight heart attacks. So I had a small dish of potato salad. It always taste better the next day. Now I am waiting for Jeopardy to come on on seven.

Fifty-five y.o. He's pretty good about not pushing himself or not getting stressed. His wife's brother owns a jewelry store. He had a small bottle with a screw cap made up to wear around is neck. It is 14K gold and he keeps his nitro pills in it. He is faithful about wearing it every day. But I still worry.

Heart attacks are no fun! I keep a bottle of nitro on my desk at work and everyone knows where it is.

I have had three heart attacks. I have a bottle of spray nitro at the computer, one at my bedside and one in the pocket on my scooter. The spray nitro works faster than the pills. Recommended by the medics who are always taking me to the hospital and my son. When I go somewhere with just my purse and not the scooter, I take that one with me.

One at home Shrek can get his hands on and one in my purse, too! I'm not to worried about work...there's a bottle of nitro in every med cart in the hallways and the facility pharmacy is right there, too. Think I should give some folks some fun tomorrow??
