    Another doc visit

    Today went in for pulmonary stress test and I have to wait a couple weeks because I have torn cartilage between my ribs from the motorcycle accident so still being pretty sore just have to wait a few weeks. Anyway hope everybody's doing good
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    But you're still doing the 100 sit-ups a day, right Dave?

    Keep on healing buddy...the stress test can wait a few weeks.

    Ouch, I do not envy anyone with busted ribs. Keep them stable until they're good and solid I say and skip the stress test until there's less stress

    Vaughn I get in about 250 sit up and 150 puch ups. In my mind I can do all things.

    Take care of yourself, Dave, and let everything heal properly.

    Something you might want to check with your doctor about is another form of the stress test. A cardiologist group I had in Florida had patients who couldn't do the treadmill, so they used some kind of injection to ramp up the heart activity for a few minutes with no physical activity. It still provided necessary data about heart function.

    Actually, if you went ahead right now and had the stress test I'm sure you would show more stress. That would be a better score---right???

    Get well so you can enjoy,
