Mike is now in cardiac-rehab. Yesterday was the first time, and he was bushed when we got home. They had him riding a stationary bike for 20 minutes, and walk as fast as he could for 6 minutes. We were told that the bike riding will be an every time thing, but the walking is not. Every session the second half will be different, so they can see how he is coming along. He will do this 3 times a week for an hour each time, until December 13th.

Tomorrow we will also have our official check up with the cardiologist. Hopefully he will be willing to answer my questions as well. It really ticks me off that they won't talk to me. I know Mike had the attack, and as such would be the one to talk to, but I almost lost my husband! How can I take care of him if I don't know what's going on? They have to realize that we're both in this together, not just Mike?  Hopefully this one won't look at me as if I'm just being nosy :-)

I missed the LifeBook Chat this morning, as well as making the page, so I think I'm just about where I am with Mikes book ........WAY THE HECK BEHIND!! LOL. Good news is that I'm going to pick up the power-supply for my Mac, so if Mike has energy to play on the computer, I can scrap. Who knows, I may even post a page or 2 in the next week or so.

I just realized I haven't posted my November challenge for the Studio yet... so I may just go for a 6 week challenge... I'll have to think about that. I have a couple of things that I need to do, and one of these nights I'm going to have to do them, but I've actually been sleeping the last week! Lots of nightmares, but no sleepless nights, so I guess that's an improvement. It just cuts into my productivity :-)
This friday morning at 2AM is the Ivy Heritage Chat, so maybe I can stay up after and get some things done.

Last friday night we went to "GLOW Eindhoven" for a little bit. Just to be out of the house, and we managed to have dinner with my sister in the process.  It's really neat. Not sure who exactly, but students put together a light show, with regular buildings as base. I took a bunch of pictures, but there were a lot of them that didn't turn out too great, because of the way the lighting was done, and I still haven't figured out what I flubbed-up on the settings, so there's a lag between hitting the button, and the shutter closing..... Any way, I'll have to make a page with a couple of my favorite shots :-)  I'm hoping Nicky had better luck with hers, because she promised to share!

well, it's almost midnight, and the alarm goes off at 5, so we can make therapy, and I guess I'd better call it a day :-)

  1. Well rehab´s a step up on sitting at home fretting. He´s probably too tired to fret after the bike ride to nowhere. I had the same therapy after I broke my leg. It wasn´t much fun but at least it got me out of a wheelchair and I felt I was contributing to my own recovery.
