As Ted and I start our day. I had to clean the snow away. it was like slush. So thankful it was not more. It warmed up to 40 degrees....but with wind and dampness, it was miserably cold.
Getting to the heart clinic. The semi truck in front of this line was waiting for another semi to get into it's spot before he could make his left hand turn. Lots of trucks on this road . we are within yards of our entrance.
Here we are turning into the parking lot.
Once we are parked ,it's a pretty view.
Inside the heart clinic. Two patients had just been called to the interior rooms.
Ted brought his meds in the tote bag next to him. He was given an electronic sign in devise.
Here he is being called into one of the examination room. The heart doctor told Ted all his tests, the treadmill, and the chest x-ray came back good. But as he went over Ted symptoms and heart history, he changed some things . Took away the adult dose aspirin daily and put him on a children's dose. Then change his blood pressure medicine. Also put him on an angina medicine. Ted has never had any angina that we know . Ted's blood pressure has been 120 / 64.....almost every time I have taken it. It was 140/ 65 while in the exam room. That makes me think his meds were working.
This coming week, Ted will have a heart catheterization. They will be checking the stent he had put in 18 years ago. This is for good measure. So please keep Ted in your good thoughts and prayers. We deeply appreciate all of you and your loving kindnesses.
We did breathe a little easier after we left the clinic. Now we will prepare for this coming week.
On a cute note. Lynzie sent me this picture of Max bringing Luke to the patio doors, so he can see the snow. Ever faithful Madison by their sides. Love that dog. All the while, Max is telling Luke, "Look , Lukie, it's Christmas time." :) You may be able to see a touch of snow in the grass.
