I had quite the experiance yesterday.
it was my monthly visit to the vampires. My hands had been ice cold all morning. When the techs tired to get the vampire breakfast they couldn't get any sample. The Queen came into the lab to check what as taking so long and the tech asked if I looked normal. The Queen said not and they wheeled me into the ER. I started a siezure and was in immediately. The er doc diagnodsed a TIA. What better place to have problems. Everything came back to normal in about 10 minutes. The ER doc is going to look into what may be causing the blockage of floow. He happens to be a replacement for my regular doctor who is on vacation and i have an appointment on the 13th. Hopefully they can find an answer to my problems.

Hi Tony!

Hope you're managing okay at home, since your TIA in the ER a couple days ago. I'm on board with Shore and Alley in that a newer doctor may possibly provide you with better information, skills and results for your on-going condition. If he achieves this, you should immediately transfer over to his service!

Hope the temperature gauge, on the right-side of your blogsite, is correct in showing a current 80.1F degrees with extremely comfortable dewpoints for your area. We're beginning to climb up a bit to the mid-eighties this afternoon but with increased humidity. Tomorrow should be more oppressive (90's with near 70 dewpoint) until a cool front moves through with t'storms, later tomorrow, for a return to another supposed week of enjoyable summer weather. Compared to all those currently suffering from ongoing heatwaves and drought, Massachusetts has been darn lucky this season. I can't complain about our occasional two to three day heatwave, as they've been relatively sporadic, short-lived and usually followed by a week of decent weather. Wish we could spread this around to all our unfairly weathered friends.

Take continued care and keep in touch when able!

Hi, Tony! Maybe the docs can figure out a way to stop those seizures!

Is your webcam down? I haven't seen your driveway for a while!

I'm glad you're not down here; heat index here is supposed to get to 110F! If you you came down to visit, I'd have to put a bed in the walk in cooler of a large resturant! :)

Take care!

Good morning Tony. I fully agree with Shores that having a fresh pair of eyes looking at you while in seizure is just what was needed. Some docs are more up on the latest journals and reports and maybe finally something good will come out of this.

Overcast and hazy here, chances of storms blowing through, sounds like it will be a nice day except for the heat (90s) and humidity. Going to feel like were in the low l00s. This old lady is not venturing too far from her AC livingroom and office.

Take care dear one, hope you have a quiet day.

Well, now. That takes multi-tasking to a whole new level! Great that the docs got a first-hand look, great that the Queen knows the signs and symptoms so well, and great that the techs were paying attention!

Hope all's quiet and peaceful until your appointment, and that some guru or other finally comes up with some good answers! It's never a bad thing to have someone new looking at these things, either. That's why I always tell my customers to let me know if they find a flaw in the varnish after I've finished a job. Sometimes I can look and look, and still miss it!
