It's not a real rich ice cream, Cheryl, just in case you prefer that kind. Himself said he thought it was "icy". I didn't notice that. Still, it was good and flavorful, I thought it was smooth. 150 calories for a 1/2 cup serving of vanilla. I plan on trying some of the other flavors over the summer.

BTW, the kids' friend is off the hook. She actually raves about Blue BELL ice cream, from TX. She spent some of her formative years there and likes it best. No Blue Bell around here, but I'm happy with the Bunny.

I was reading some news clips and came across the following. It is a site that sends you daily emails for those who like to use their tablet or other device for reading books. These are free downloads, or some are.

bookbub.com

Take a looksee. It looks interesting.

Results are in.

We were surprised at how quick my husbands MRI results got back to his Dr.

It's not great news. The MRI showed that he's had a heart attack, lower part of his heart.

The Dr wants him in to get an Angioplasty to see what's going on. Great more tests. He's looking forward to an over night stay at the hospital.
He's fine with that as long as I'm his nurse.

It's ok for now that he carry my Nytro on him until he gets his own. Strict orders NO exercise. Walking is ok, as long as it's not too much to wind him.

That's been our morning and afternoon. Making phone calls. Get the ball rolling.

If nobody see's me here for a few days. You'll know why. I'll be with him.
Have a feeling he will be going in real soon.

Munky, I'm so sorry to hear of the not-so-great test results. It sounds like he has the best of nurses with you though, to make sure he follows Drs. orders. Sending best of healing thoughts and prayers to you both. Try to check in here when you can.

Munky, sorry about the news. Just one suggestion. Have the doctor give him a 'script for the spray Nitro. It acts so much faster. It is what the Paramedics use in the ambulance. One quick spray under the tongue is all it takes and acts almost instantly. I keep a bottle on my computer desk, nightstand and in my satchel on my scooter. I always have it within my reach.

Take good care of him, as I know you will. I have reached my quota for angioplasties. Five in all. Slept like a baby through every one of them.

Munky, I'm sorry to hear of the test results. At least they've identified the issue before something worse happened. I'll keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sure you'll take good care of him better than any nurse.
