As some of you may know, last week I had a little scare. Yesterday, I went to get a nuclear stress test and the good news is, my EKG and blood pressure are fine while running up an incline. I won't know how the pictures came out until next Wednesday, but I'm not too concerned.

I'm glad to report that the folks who performed the test thought I did very well.

In the room with the treadmill was a defibrillator. I asked, "How often do you use that thing?"
"Never been used," they said. "But we have called the stretcher guys to bring people directly to the hospital."
"You're kidding"
"Nope, once it was a nice young lady, 'bout your age. A nutritionist. Great shape. We checked her right into Cardiac Care."

So, any day you take a stress test and don't end up in the hospital is a very good one.

Fabulous news, Liz. I'll be waiting to hear the good news from the doctor, but we want you around for a good 80 more years.
