Went up to vote this morning and in the same building there is a used book store. I sure lucked out, I got a copy of Gooseberry Patch"s COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS cook book for only $1. I love these cookbooks.

trying to keep myself calm since getting the news this morning my angiogram is in jan and the followup is in march. i really don't want this test because of memories of my mom's "1 in 10,000" experience (she did survive but they had to use paddles). i know it is unlikely to happen to me and as TB said, i don't want to give myself a heart attack worrying about it. they are just being cautious because of an anomilie at the bottom of my heart and family history.

think positive, think positive, think.....

What am I doing? I am sitting here with a patch over my left eye. The surgery went very well. they had a hell of a time finding a vein for the IV. Took three nurses and finally the anesthesiologist came in and put it in my ankle. I took a short nap until my phone woke me up. Son #2 called. I forgot to tell him about the surgery. Not a happy person right now.

All is well. If my typing is a little off, please forgive me. I do touch typing, but even that is hard right now.

I'm so glad you're ok! Thanks for letting us all know Next time you need to find a vain just start singing, it works for me. My vains vanish when I panick
My Dr used to think I'm nuts, now he reminds me to sing!

I am not afraid of needles. But my veins are shot to hell. They have lost all their collegen and as a result are very small and delicate. Everytime they think they have a working one, it blows. I have even had to have one IV done in my neck. That was the best one I ever had. It is a last resort to go there. I amgoingto lie down again. I am very tired right now. I have to put drops in my eyes tonight. And change the eye patch. So much fun. Now I have to look forward to the right eye.

The doctor gave me a lens whereby I will still be wearing glasses, but the lens will be a lot thinner that what I have been wearing the past years. If I traded the right lens in, I could get a nickel refund.

Thanks, Addie, for keeping us posted. I'm glad you were finally able to get the procedure done. I hope it all turns out well, and am looking forwarding to hearing about it.
