Well, today was supposed to be my appointment with the cardiologist to see where things stand. I got to his office only to learn that he had had an emergency and would not be there. So they scheduled me for June 8. Very disappointing. But I asked his nurse if he could at least find out if I could start exercising a little bit -- I've gained 8 pounds and that needs to end.
He says I can do very low impact exercising. And I can do light yoga as long as I don't get my arms involved. And I have to be very careful in daily activities with my arms so that I don't over-stretch.
When I go back next week they will "interrogate" the pacemaker and see how it's doing. I am especially interested in the battery life of the pacemaker. I know I'm an old hand at this surgery now but with any luck at all, it will be at least two years before I need to do it again.
Tomorrow is my appointment with the ophthalmologist to see what's going on with my left eye. Everything is a blur with my left eye.
I've been getting out every day exploring the neighborhood and having lunch or breakfast. At first I thought it would be weird to be eating by myself but as I looked around I saw that there were quite a few people dining alone. I guess Inever paid attention before.
I went to Cracker Barrel the other day and got on the waiting list for breakfast. An announcement came over the loudspeaker: "Joe, party of 2," "Susan, party of 4," "Marilyn." It was cute that she didn't say "party of 1." Ha.
