I went to the cardiologist this afternoon. I do not have a heart problem. His opinion is that the stress test was normal and since everything else was normal, the pain was not from the heart. Since I found out that fibromyalgia can imitate heart pains, I think that is what it was.

Mom got up rather late today. I let her sleep in because she was so tired. She got up a few minutes before Angela arrived. It worked out quite well. Mom got her hair washed too and the blood is now out of her hair from the fall. She seems to have recovered nicely from it. She isn't really sore in too many places and she went up and down the stairs just fine. No major problems with that! She went with me to the doctors as usual. It was a long wait for a few minute visit. I hate waiting for doctors, but what else can we do? While we were at the doctors office there was a storm, but fortunately we didn't have any damage.

Saturday is Richard's birthday. He will be 46 years old. He is 3 1/2 years older than me and 4 1/2 years older than Andrew. I wonder what he will be doing on his birthday? I plan to call him and hope I get a chance to talk a long while with him.

Mom is slightly grumpish right now. Not really grumpy, grumpy, just a little off. She got mad when I told her that her prescription was in and we would pick it up tomorrow. She actually got mad at that. Now she is fine again since I told her it was going to rain. Hard to tell with her what is going on, sometimes it is exhausting figuring her out.

Her favorite game is playing with paper so I try to make sure she has paper to play with. She loves envelopes too so when I don't need an envelope, I just pass it along. Sometimes she is amusing too. She wants to hit the road now. I asked her where she wanted to go and she doesn't know. Alzheimer's, what an interesting, crazy disease.

Not much going on tonight. We may meet up with Robin tomorrow, that will be fun. Since the physical therapist came today, she will be here on Saturday. I think her schedule is busier than mine at times.

I have a bad headache today. I can thank the humid weather for that. I hope it goes away soon. Tomorrow is supposed be a better weather type day because I really am tired of bad headaches because of the weather. I hope you are doing better.


  1. Hi Heather! This is really interesting to me, because I have been having painful heart "beats."
    I have had it checked, and was told it was nothing. Still it persists. I hope tomorrow is a better day for us both!

  2. I hope today is a better day for you and your mum ((((hugs))))
    Alzheimers is really tough to deal with, my grandmother developed it after triple bypass surgery...she's never been the same since.
    Take good care.

  3. Alzheimer's is a horrible disease. My grandpa had it and he was once very smart at math and then over time it got to be where he couldn't even balance a checkbook. My grandma sure had her hands full, as it sounds like you do, too!! Take some time out for YOU, Heather!
