Thankful Thursday  
I am grateful Bob has VA healthcare because he has been in the VA for since Monday to find out why his left shoulder and arm hurt. He is having a cardiac catheterization tomorrow, the last of the heart tests, and then will have to come back for some neurological tests as an outpatient because his hand is weak.
I am grateful we can sit and laugh about all kinds of stuff and have fun together after 49 years. Still it freaks me out that less than one percent of people die from this and I'm grateful that the percentage is so low!
I am grateful for my neighbor, Alison Horvath, who has taken care of Maggie and offered to do it again, and whose husband sent over a guy to clear a tree off my drive so I could get out to see Bob today.
I'm grateful for Bob, for his sense of humor, his inventiveness, and all the rest of what I love about him...
I'm grateful for my friend Dawn, whose husband had this a year ago and who told me the nurse will have to stand there with her hand on Bob's thigh for half and hour. I said, "He'll like that."
I am grateful for all the fun we have had...
I am freaked out but grateful.

I hope it all goes well and that you end up relieved and reassured. I'll be thinking of you.

It went well. No blockages, but also no answer about what causes the pain. Neurology next...

HUGS all round.

I hope everything gets sorted out!

He has no blockages, but they have no idea what is causing the pain. He goes to neurological testing next.

Sending good thoughts towards Bob! I hope the doctors can sort it out and he can have relief and you can have peace of mind.

It did! No blockages. No answer but no heart problem at least.
