I'm a former lifeguard and swim teacher, this was really annoying.
Dawg, I ask my nurse about going to the local gym for their water aerobics for elderly. I got a big "No"! And they also ruled out bicycle riding. I loved my bike as a kid, and when I lived in Texas, the kids had to double up on one of their bikes. I would always take one bike to run errands and just pleasure ride. Right up to my eighth month of my pregnancy. I am told it is a matter of balance. The water class would have placed too much strain on my heart, and I do have a constant ear problem since birth. Also, as Winthrop is wont to constantly remind me, "I am not 20 years old anymore."

Addie, I'm tough as nails, in good physical shape, and relatively patient. It annoyed the heck out of me that I couldn't grab that dang Kindle! Then a sweet lady who's twice my weight and half my height was able to grab it. Oh, and probably half my age.

I am afraid my body has given up the fight. This heart of mine just does not want to cooperate with all the things I would like to do. But in my mind I can still do it. Until I try it.

Unfortunately an open MRI was out of the question/unavailable anyways for him. It has to be ordered from the Dr, prior to your appmt. For what his Dr needed to see it had to be closed because of the dye used. Opened wouldn't have been very accurate.

It took about 2 hrs. He grilled the Tech beforehand. "If I say get me out NOW!,are you going to argue with me about it? Are you going to be quick? Because if not I'm going to start breaking S...!" The Tech told him and showed him just how quick he would be. 1 min tops. Please Mr. don't break our stuff!

Hubbby's a big guy. He would have done it to.!

He went through the whole thing. Afterwards he was very tired. Exhausted is more like it. Nothing was broken in the process.
I took him out to dinner.Picked up the check.

Glad that's over with.

Munky, I'm sorry this has been such an ordeal for both of you. I know I wouldn't be a good patient if I had to have an MRI. I hope the results that come back show as small of an issue as possible. Sending good thoughts your way. Hang in there - you're one tough girl.

Geez, Munky. I would freak too if I had to be stuck in a tube! Good for your DH, he survived, without breaking anything!

I think it might be dead. I will try to ressurect it tomorrow.

:sigh: RIP, sweet Kindle. I left it in dry brown rice, and took it out today and shook it off, plugged it in. The orange recharging light is on, but the switch does nothing. It's been a good pool friend for years. I'll give it another day or two.

What are you doing?

We walked Beagle over to a dear friend's, friend just got out of the hospital after having major surgery for prostate cancer. They opened him up, and he had cancer all over. He had three robots operating on him, and is in a lot of pain. He's totally German, and tough as they make them.

We brought over half our United Way meal. His wife was very appreciative.
