In other news: I voted early this year for the first time ever. With each day being a crapshoot on how I will feel, I decided to get out on a good day. The lines had already formed even though I was there before the polls opened. Standing in line was a bit tough; it reminded me of how I felt at the end of the day when I was working. I guess it was about an hour's wait. I had to muster a little manliness in order not to look like I needed a chair. My decline in stamina was a little shocking considering the "athlete" I had once been. I wore my O2 in a Camelbak backpack, trimmed for it's new course of duty. Overall I felt OK afterwards; just don't ask me to do it everyday, ha ha.
In weird news: It appears I was right all along. I always knew that holding it in seemed unnatural. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/126730.php Now I have a good excuse for my wife :-).
Medically, I have my LFT & coumadin check on Friday. I still haven't heard anything new from the King as to the echo results. I did receive a letter today in the mail from my health insurance that my "prescription" for Ventavis was approved. The PH people really jumped the gun on this one. I almost don't know how to respond when I see them next. I don't want to put up too big of a stink in case I need this somewhere down the road, but I am going to have a pointed conversation and get some answers so I can get this off my chest.
Birthday and holidays coming up in the next couple of months. My wife brought to my attention a new tech gadget called Kindle. You can check it out at Amazon. It's a bit pricey at the moment but for someone who likes to read, it looks really cool. She & I do gifts a little different than most; we pick out what we want & the other person buys it. We do share one surprise gift to stay with the spirit of gift giving. I'm not sure yet if this beats out an oximeter & a wrist wrap BP/pulse reader. (Sense my sarcasm). We'll see what happens.
Other than that not much going on. I did a little off the wall writing but it wasn't finished so it didn't make this week's blog deadline, maybe next week. I was also pleased to see that Mason and Mack made it home from the hospital. I hope they get settled back in with a little more comfort.
Well, time to visit the pharmacist. See you guys next week.
