You get me for another day......

8:11 am - Friday - May 17th - Ramona, CA - 54° F, 81% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the south....partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 66° F.....the view this morning.....↴

A little sun this morning!

We woke up to rain Thursday morning, and it continued raining until mid afternoon, sometimes quite hard.....well, hard for SoCal, right?  Thursday was the first day of the PGA Championship being played at Beth Page Black on Long Island, NY so you know what I was doing for the better part of the day.

My post heart attack rehabilitation calls for me to begin taking short walks of about 5 minutes, to be gradually increased in duration over time as my condition warrants.  We weren't able to take my first walk until it stopped raining just after 3 pm.  We walked down to the office and back with a brief stop at the half way point in each direction.  I had a lot of energy and TLE had to keep reminding me to slow down and take my time, which is very hard for me.

Since my new prescription requirements call for me to reduce my daily blood pressure medication to 10 mg from 20 mg I need to cut all my 20 mg pills in half.  TLE ordered a 'pill cutter' off Amazon Wednesday evening, and it arrived Thursday morning at the RORVR park office, so I spent part of the afternoon cutting the 45 remaining pills in my 90 day supply in half.....that is really a tedious task.  I also had to cut my 'Beta blocker' pills in half.

The 'pill cutter'

The interesting thing about Thursday was I never felt like I needed a nap, and I never took a nap all day.  I'm beginning to think the 2, or more naps per day I was taking in the last few months were due to my heart problem.  I'm sure I will take naps in the future, as I have always taken a nap at lunch time since I was in my 20's, but maybe the multiple daily naps may be history now that the arterial blockage has been reduced.

My first full day home after my most recent hospital visit was nice and relaxing.  I feel great, and am looking forward to getting back to work next week.  We headed off to bed to the gentle sound rain on the roof....a nice end to another day.
