I am now a fully wired individual

As per my doctor's direction, I visited a cardiologist this morning. Note that I did not see the cardiologist. Nope, a technician gave me an echocardiogram (sonogram of my heart) and another technician wired me up with a Holter monitor, a 24-hour EKG recorder. Seven leads, major adhesive. Every time I take a breath I feel my chest hair pulling out even more. Luckily, the chest discomfort has been almost completely absent for the last 10 or 11 days, so no worries...I just want it checked out so that I know that there is nothing to panic about. This will really hurt to take off.

As for my busy day, I have some professional development to do, and I'd like to finish cleaning my office and do some prep work to replace the linoleum in the foyer. I don't know if I can get that done today (there's lots of higher priorities) but it'd be nice to collect all the tools I need to make it happen. There's also painting to do, but that's going to have to wait until I get the monitor off. Can't risk getting paint on something I don't own. There's also tomorrow, but before the weekend, there's cleaning to be done and groceries to acquire. I'm sure there's other chores to do as well, but I can't think of them off the top of my head right now.

If I get done with the important stuff, I plan to try to sort out some stuff with websites and photos and other fun leisure things. Maybe even play a game or something. We'll just have to see.

Re: I'll Trade!
I've had to swallow a camera before. It's not fun, but it's not painful. This is gonna hurt. Hope your tests go well too. Over do things? Moi? Surely you jest. :)

Congrats on finishing the brief! Hope it goes well.
