This is a good description of me this past week!
I wanted to thank you for stopping by or emailing....for all your good thoughts and prayers. I had an appointment or something else scheduled each day and really have not been on the computer except for a couple minutes. I had 1,971 emails this morning! Took awhile to delete those that were not important and I still have not responded to those I want to. Please bear with me, ok? :-)
I met with the cardiologist on Thursday for the results of the tests I had the previous Friday. I am extremely grateful ~ he said the heart is strong and there are no blockages. There is, however, an underlying "something" that is causing the EKG's to be abnormal. One thing he said that is a possibility is if I have old fillings and/or crowns...they could be leaking and that goes into your blood stream. So now, I go to the dentist to see about that. Also, have to work on my cholesterol & triglycerides.
My mammogram appt was early Wed morning. Long story short, the girls at the reception desk were severely lacking in customer service skills and I waited forever. Once they finally took me to the back to change clothes, etc., that room was also packed. I asked about the wait there and it was going to be close to another hour. Nope, not for me! The girl said I was 'welcome' to return later as they started again at 1:00 p.m. The technicians were all at lunch between 12-1p so she said I should be back at 12:30. I asked her why I should be back then when they were all at lunch...she responded that I could be seen at 1:00 that way. I told her no, I could understand returning 5-10 min prior but the additional 30 min wait was unacceptable. I left and joined friends for breakfast. I tried calling the facility manager in the afternoon but they said she was in a conference. I waited until 5:15 and no call back so got online and contacted the corporate office. Within 10 min of sending my email, a lady called from that office. I explained the rude behavior, the waiting, etc. She apologized and got the manager on the phone also...the one I had been waiting on to return my call. One comment made was this was their busiest time of the year. I told her that was not my problem...it was theirs for the way they were scheduling ladies and that I had made my appt over a month ago. We had a lengthy chat and I am to return early Mon so we shall see if things are improved!
My daughter put up 3 Christmas trees Monday evening and did a lot of decorating. :-) I took one of her dogs and mine to be groomed on Tuesday and it was fun to see what she had done. She and a couple of her friends did more decorating today ~ that girl LOVES Christmas!
We had our first frost yesterday morning. I turned on the heat the night before just to make sure it was ok....nope, cool air and would not shut off. Finally got it turned off and called the office yesterday morning. Then it was like a swinging door here while they did the inspection and then repaired it.
I honestly don't know where the week went. I'm looking forward to catching up with all of you and see what exciting things you've been doing ~ cooking, painting, sewing, decorating, etc. IF you got this far, I appreciate your reading! I'm always excited to have you stop by and leave a comment. It's like I've been missing good friends all week. Hope everyone is warm and cozy and enjoying the weekend!
