Power has â€œglitchedâ€ a few times well enough for my desktop to reboot. Hate that. Power outages all around us from treeâ€™s taking out the power lines. Joy. After this crappy wx summer and how â€œfallâ€ is starting out Iâ€™m not looking forward to this Winter! Not a bit!
Otherwise, SSDD. Chores. Got down in my shop and started sanding that board my neighbor gave me. (Lookinâ€˜ good!) Scanning my Auntâ€™s pictures. Moving things around. Playing on my computers. Keeping SWMBO happy. (Or, not murderously unhappy. She does know where I sleep.)
Oh, saw that Cardiologist again. He said everything is working like itâ€™s supposed to. Told me I have a good heart (for an OLD guy that smoked for 40 years!). So I asked him â€œWhy can I be laying in bed and feel my left leg/foot swell up?â€ He seemed surprised and immediately blamed in on â€œvein problems.â€ Wants to send me to a â€œveinâ€ Doctor. (I did that last year. No â€œveinâ€ problems found.) So he disappeared to get me a consult for a â€œsecond opinionâ€ and I came on home.
Two things. 1) He could have told me over the phone and saved me the almost hour drive there and the almost hour drive back. 2) Iâ€™m ultimately disappointed in this Doctor, his â€œbedsideâ€ manner, and his â€œoff the cuff pretty much instantaneous diagnosisâ€ of â€œveinâ€ problems without first examining me. Honestly, each time we â€œtalkedâ€ he just seemed to want to be somewhere else. I never did get to tell him what was really bothering me and Iâ€™m pretty sure he didnâ€™t actually read the forms his office had me fill out.
So, I have a healthy heart that skips beats and I take medication to slow it down so it doesnâ€™t forget to beat. I get minor chest pains and short of breath upon exertion. And, every so often, Iâ€™ll be laying in bed and my heart will feel like itâ€™s â€œfluttering.â€ But everythingâ€™s okay.
Funeral is next week.
Date Day and SWMBO is taking me to the All-You-Can-Eat Chinese food place in Port Orchard.
