Well I am alive and well. That is not me above in that contraption but I was in the same thing yesterday. It takes a 360 degree picture of your heart and also gives a reading as to how your blood is flowing through your heart. Here’s a link. Stress Test
It was a good part of the day going back and forth to the hospital. I got the results last night and my heart is healthy! What a blessing that is. I am pretty sure my nausea was caused by my taking a medication called Metoprolol Tartrate. I was supposed to take 1/2 a pill in the morning and another 12 hours later. I was taking it all in the morning…about 3 to 4 hours apart. I didn’t know. It lowers your heart rate and it’s no wonder I was so nauseas and tired.
More good news. My feet are finally feeling better. I still have some pain but nothing like it was. The plantar fasciitis seems to be lessening…thank God. It is a very painful thing. My new orthotics are working and I am not allergic. I lost about 5 pounds this last week! It looks like things are looking up. I just have to be vigilant and start slowly exercising so I don’t aggravate that foot. It’s been a long summer trying to get through this foot problem and figure out why I seem to be allergic to the universe this year. I am getting closer.
Boy do I have many lessons with my garden this year. I got greedy and planted way too much in too small of an area. I thought I had late blight but I don’t thank God! I did, however, get the giant tomato hornworms!! Those alien worms are baaaaaaaaaaack! Here’s what they look like… My girlfriend Chandra came by to help me with my garden when I was sick. She just about jumped out of her skin when she saw this!! They are disgusting!! And this is what it turns into!!!
I hate those bugs!! So all is well here on the plains. Things are getting back to normal. We still hate the heat and cannot wait until fall. My garden is in fall stage right now. It’s been an odd summer. We are one month ahead in the garden……it is like we are in September right now. Corn is tasseling, squash and pumpkin are turning, gourds are done growing, cukes are finishing up and tomatoes are slow to turn red. What can I say? It’s a very weird year for the garden and for me!!
