holyfuck it's Friday

 So this has been a busy busy busy week.... Tuesday I had sonogram on my carotid  and it came back with a 50% tightening but no blockage so that explains the roaring in my right ear..so other than being a nuisance it's not life threatening..

Today I had my apt with cardiologist ...set me up with a litany of test all thru the month of Sept and then back to see Dr in Oct. Added another blood pressure pill and was amused that I referred to my swollen foot as Frodo foot. I really like him so maybe by Oct I'll be able to figure what the fuck is going on and we can get it fixed.. right now my blood pressure is low (so low that my body is saying 'wtf?'..) only side effect is I sleep...sleep and sleep..

the best part of the day was got to have lunch with Jennifer at Cathay House, which has great Chinese food. Their hot and sour soup will knock your dick in the dirt but damn it's good. We had a great lunch. She told me some hilarious Olivia stories. Only one can I repeat. So she's in 4th grade and between the other girls and boys she's learning stuff.. So one day she comes in(you have to remember that this child has a wicked funny since of humor and knows exactly what she is saying and doing.) so she comes in and goes in the bathroom and comes out with a wadded up washcloth under her tshirt for one boob. (she has no boobs, she's 9)...her mother is what the hell? Olivia said puberty has only half set in. When it sets in the other boob will grow out. what kid thinks this way????? The other one had to do with pubic hair and even I can't tell that one. but I laughed so hard I thought they were going to throw us out of the restaurant. We are so screwed..ok, on with the show..

I hope all the tests & doctors find out what the issue is and resolve it, YDG! And what a comedian little Olivia is -- she's a comedic handful already!

Hahahahaha, love the pie in the tub of Cool Whip!

Henry Kissinger is proof that the good die young.

The GOP Healthcare Plan, LOL! The back of the horse with covid -- right on!

I hope all the testing goes well. This week has been such a shit-show, I can't even be happy about Friday. This is the year that's cemented my vow to never vote for a R again.

Debra..me the fuck too..and who knew a pie in a tub of whipped topping was wrong??? not me.
Me too Gail...this up and down blood pressure is pissing me off.

Oh, c'mon we all want to hear the pubic hair joke. Thanks for all you do and hope you ace the tests.

Thank heavens it's a long weekend! Cool Whip with pie on top - my favorite!

This might sound weird, but my mom had some blockage in her carotids and her BP was all over the place. An ultrasound showed blockages to her kidneys, one was almost shut down because of it. Turns out kidneys help control blood pressure - who knew?

Anyway, hang in there and hopefully the docs will figure it out. Have a great weekend!

OMG! David and I laughed about your story. David said when you go back to your doctor to ask if leeches might help. I just laughed and laughed.

My cardiologist also keeps telling me I need to come in for tests - I keep telling him no thank you. His testing office is in Houston's medical center and I hate going there! You know conversations like the "puberty" one will come back and haunt Olivia when she's older! I hope someone is taking notes!
