The weather is beautiful - sunny, thirty or so, with the hillside glistening like diamonds under a clear blue sky with wispy white clouds, like streaks of wool thinly spread out. I was out five minutes before I had to take my jacket off. I took the doggies up the hill through some drifts to enjoy the morning, and also to stir things up so this machine and miles of wires I have stuffed into my sports bra will record something interesting. I have to keep it on until 2 pm, giving the cardiologist, hopefully, the answer to why my heart doesn't want to pump regularly. I'm very grateful to Nurse Tanya for making all these appointments over my vacation week so I don't have to miss school. I hate to miss work, and I love the fact that I hate to miss work. It gets me there when the going gets rough. I would really like to know why my pulse is 40 and skipping at times, then nice and strong other times. I feel great, just tired at night and sleep fine. Who knows?
