First of all, for those of you who are aware of my marital history, no, I’m not getting a new husband.
Second, about the shoulder. Went to the shoulder doc today. Everything is as it should be. They’ve added some strength building exercises to the ones I’m already [supposed] to be doing. I go back in 2.5 months (late August). As long as I continue to progress with my home exercises, they’re not going to send me to “real” physical therapy, which is a good thing. The last thing I need in my schedule is another doctor’s visit. I do need to start being better about actually doing my exercises, though.
Next about the husband. Jack has had some issues being out of breath when walking briskly or otherwise exerting. A nuclear scan showed some potential narrowing or blockage of one of his coronary arteries. We go in Wednesday for an angiogram with the possibility of having a balloon procedure or a stent inserted. (Well, actually, Jack goes in. I’m just the chauffer.) If all they do is look, Jack will be home Wednesday afternoon. If they actually do something, he’ll have to stay overnight at the hospital and come home Thursday. Probably be back to work on Friday or Saturday. Right now no one is getting too excited about this. It doesn’t sound life-threatening or even appear to be significant enough for the doctor to rush him in for the angiogram. However it is something that we need to check into and I give Jack a lot of credit for stepping up and getting it seen about. I’ll post more Wednesday night after the procedure to keep everyone informed.
Now about the car. (Picture below) The car (we’ll call him George to protect the innocent), has blended in quite well with the family. He’s almost the same size as the white CTS Cadillac that he shares his room (the garage) with. Jack thinks he’s wonderful and is now considering getting a twin — or at least a cousin — when his lease on the CTS runs out later this year. I think it’s a wonderful car. It’s plush and powerful and safe. But I can’t help but miss my Smart Car. It was cute and fun to drive and it made me smile every day. Now I’m just another Lexus-driving, middle-aged, Dallas workaholic. Everyone should have my problems. Thanks for checking in. I’ll update on Jack’s condition after the procedure on Wednesday.
