I am tired...

An interesting day, to be sure.
Last night I had to take an uncle to the VA hospital; he has some problems with internal bleeding. Spent time there until 1:30 AM, when I was able to go home to rest, but was thirsty as hell, since I was not allowed any water after midnight.
7:00 AM saw me up, still thirsty and wishing for a cup of coffee. Got to go to the hospital, got a tube run up my femoral artery, and portraits of my wayward heart. From what they can tell, it looks like my stent is ok, and they can't see anything to get excited about at this time. I have a couple of pictures which I may post sometime in the near future. Not real exciting, however, since basically they look like gnarled branches in a fog. I think my biggest problem right now is getting rid of some of the excess lard I am packing around; that will do my heart more good than anything.
I appreciate all of the good wishes from visitors; when you are concerned about your health, you can use all the moral support available.

Eeeps... what a day for sure! I hope your uncle is ok as well.
Well, I'm relieved to hear that things went relatively ok with you and as far as losing weight... ah, that'll come easy once winter is over... a little bit of walking and no problem!!
I'm just happy there's nothing seriously wrong.
Thanks for the update and now get some rest and have an extra cup of java!

Bob - I am so glad things turned out ok. And, as far as losing weight - I know I could certainly stand to lose some as well. Love you collection - I am a huge fan of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap....
