A busy day today for my dad and I as well. He had his bi-yearly heart check up today. The day started with his bath aide arriving at 8 a.m. waking us all up. Then he had his appointment at 11 a.m. His heart rate is normal. His blood pressure was slightly elevated. His cholesterol was normal helped with his meds. The stress test was all right as well. His breathing is labored but this is due to his lack of physical activity so it is actually all right according to the Dr. Over all the Dr. said he is doing great this time around. No medication changes or additions required either. Whew! Another 6 months we do it all over once again. That's it for me today. Have a great day/evening all. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That is wonderful news to hear. I am so glad that all went well for your dad. Only thing I would not have liked about the day was being woken up like that. hahaha Hopefully the next appointment in six months will go as well if not better.

I'm very glad to hear your dad is doing so well! Can he walk around? Maybe when spring comes you can get him out of the house and moving around more.

Hi Grandpa Bob, I'm glad all your Dad's tests worked out so well today. I, too have good news on the medical front. I finally found a pain management group that was willing to take me as a patient. They did a thorough exam and ordered MRIs so they can see just exactly where the problem lies. The good thing is the doctors here treat pain seriously. When I told this doctor some of the treatments I had been through and the things that had been said to me they were appalled.

Just going to the dr. could have elevated his pressure a bit. It's outside most peoples comfort zone. Sounds good overall. Glad things went well.
