What am I doing? Relaxing. It's a little after 9PM now and I'm recuperating from a day spent with 3 of the grandkids - summer vacation and all - I love them all to pieces and I so enjoy seeing the granddaughters that I only get to see a couple of times a year. They're 11 and 15, and such nice girls - we had a great day but I'm ready to kick back and chill.

I've been going through a hundred or so pics of my trip up to NoCal and organizing them into folders. Whew.

Thanks, Cheryl! Girls seem to be easier than boys, don't they?

Enjoy your relaxing!

Getting ready to go with hubby for his heart MRI today.
He's stressed that he might not be able to do it. He's claustrophobic.

I'd be to if someone wanted to shove me in a tube for an hour and not be able to move.

If it can't be done an alternative will have to be taken. That one doesn't sound like much fun either. After his last test, in all honesty I don't trust anyone. The could have killed him. So My poker face is going to be on until it's all over with. I'll be watching them like a Hawk.

On the bright side, were getting closer to finding out what's going on.

Munky, if the MRI is an issue, ask about an open MRI. It's less claustrophobic. Open MRI and a valium did the trick for me.

That will probably be his first question. He's had an open before. It went ok.
Not great, just ok. I suggested he take a Valium before he goes in. Not sure if they will let him. For the patients comfort why would they say no?

We shall see. If not were going to turn and burn. Take door #2.

An open MRI and some drug worked for Himself, too. Sending good thoughts your way.

**************

I've been watching the Cleveland Cavaliers Championship parade online for almost three hours. The lead vehicle is just now reached the stage. The cars/trucks carrying the players has been stopping all along the way because of the crush of humanity. When it stops, the players are high-fiving the people and taking selfies with the fans! How cool is that! Even from 600 miles away, I feel like I'm part of the party thanks to the powers of the internet. ♡

Sorry you couldn't be there to enjoy it first hand.

Thanks, Andy! I'd still be watching it on TV though- no way I would want to deal with standing for endless hours in a ginormous crowd. It would be a lot of fun if the TV was in a Cleveland bar, though. 😉 ~~ If you want to see some of the coverage, I've been watching live coverage on Newsnet5.com

Munky, the first time I ever had an MRI, the doctor asked me if I was claustrophobic. One look at my face, and he got the answer before I could open my mouth.

"Don't worry, we will put you to sleep." And they did. I slept through the whole thing. The last thing anyone wants is a patient screaming inside an MRI tube trying to escape.

Grrrrr! My micro just kicked the bucket. Who needs lightning? I have had this one for more than eight years. It is a big one. And my daughter bought it for me when I moved in here. The next one will be smaller. I don't think she realized how my counter space is so limited. This is my second Sharp Carousel. That brand has served me well. So I will stick with it. Time for a trip to Home Depot. Spike gets a big discount as a contractor. "Oh Spike, I need you!"
