Doctor Visit

I finally had a cardiology visit today. It went well. My doctor was glad that I'm feeling so good. He said, "Well THAT was a close call, heh heh heh" (meaning "We almost took your heart out!" which is what he said at my LAST visit) and I was like you know, it kind of freaks me out when you say that. Anyway, I need another echo to confirm that things are going well but he thinks it's going to be fine.

As I was checking out, the receptionist (CeeCee--they both know me by name. Melissa is the other one. She checked me in.) made my echo appointment which she does by calling the echo clinic. She looked up at me and said "Is September 11th all right?" At first I was like NO! That's a BAD day! Then I was like no, that WAS a bad day. Then I was like you know, it's a day. And if we stop everything, interrupting our normal lives, then the terrorists win. So I was like "Sure, the 11th would be fine." Of course, all of this took place in a fraction of a second inside my head.

Then later I thought what was I doing last Sept. 11th? Oh yeah, that's right, I was laying in the hospital watching tv and being miserable. So that made me realize how fortunate I am this year. I mean can you believe it's already September and I have spent NOT ONE day in the hospital this whole year? Amazing! I'm so glad.

Wow! good news. Will be interested in hearing about your Echo results on Sept. 11th.
Dad and I are flying to Lisbon on 9/11 - it was available (Dah). We are on the same waive length. This is a whole new year. Don't let the terrorists win - travel - enjoy - call your travel agent.
Love, Mom
