  • I can see where he would want to get that fixed, I'm fairly certain the beating of one's heart is directly linked to one's well-being. I doubt it will help him though, I caught up on the last couple weeks worth of posts and from the hip I'd say he's a hypochondriac on some level. He seems to be revolving his life around what ails him at the moment, but then he's up for a 14 mile hike at a moment's notice. Will the procedure today heal him? Or does he want to be completely healed?
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    • He's lucky you're there for him SB..I'm fairly certain (there's always a small chance of failure) all will be well. I've had several procedures having 'wires' threaded through arteries in legs and was mostly awake during them. It's pretty amazing stuff and really makes a difference. Good luck to both of you.

      • I'm pretty sure he's got a strong psychological component in there. His mother was a nurse and a worry-wort. Everything he did was accompanied by a story. "I see you are using a pencil to do your homework. The other day a little boy came in with a pencil stuck in his eye. He'll never see again." Stuff like that.

        • Oh, that made me laugh. I wonder if there are any good Kleenex stories.

          • I think he'll be fine and happy to have had the procedure. My BIL had the same thing about a year ago, after many years of having to go to the doctor to get his heart zapped back into the proper rhythm. Now he no longer has to worry about his heart going wicky anymore. I have Premature Ventricular Contractions on both sides of my heart - and let me tell you......... when it starts doing its little dance in my chest it really takes my breath away! I hate it! If there was a procedure to fix it I think I would do it. What your BF is having is a very common procedure with very high positive outcome. I expect to hear all is well by the end of the day!

            Brownie points to you for being there for him............ and heres hoping for many many more long hikes together!

            • That is good to hear, Tomi. My boyfriend did tell me the doctor said there was a 97% success rate with the procedure. Of course, he focuses on that 3%. I'm not too worried.

              I probably should have gone to work today. All I'm doing is hanging around the house waiting. I made some more pesto. I'm thinking I would like to try olive tapenade next. Looks like the secret ingredients, other than the obvious ones, are anchovies and capers. Ooh, this sounds so delicious. Just wait until I put tapenade on salmon. The raves I will get from that!

              I'm starting to think instead of the paleo diet, I will call my diet the Mediterranean diet.

                Yes, there are keelnex stories. You should always pick up litter that you see, except for kleenex. Why a boy came into the hospital just the other day with a terrible infection from touching someone's used kleenex.

                • I KNEW there was a reason I didn't pick those up! A terrible infection. Oh my.

                  • Well the old man should be coming home soon. The doctor made it sound like the whole thing was a snap. We'll see what really happened when I go get him.

                    • I found a page of pictures of famous endomorphs. I will never have that kind of wasp waist so I can't possibly aspire to look like these women. These are all the best-looking women, in my opinion:

                      In contrast, here are the mesomorphs. I am more similar to this than the endomorphs above, but I lack the six-pack abs and so many visible muscles.

                      And here are some ectomorphs. I don't aspire to this as I know that it doesn't resemble me at all.

                      • SB, how is the boyfriend?

                        • He is fine. The procedure went well. He's taking the rest of the week off to rest. He says he feels strange that he had a heart procedure and doesn't feel like anything happened. He says he does feel sort of tired and a little sore in his heart but otherwise normal.

                          So I was trying to track the day's calories on my fitness pal. I went to put in my sardines. I scanned the barcode. Then I noticed the calories are for a drained can of sardines. Why on earth would someone pay for the olive oil and then drain it? Yeah, I drained my can...right over my salad. I find this whole calorie/macro tracking thing so worthless because of stupid stuff like that.

                          • As for the pic's of endo-meso-ecto things........... I didn't see a single picture on all 3 pages that I wouldn't LOVE to look like! In my youth...... I was the ecto - but as I aged I became more of a endo. I have curvy hips and wide shoulders - so when I'm thin I had the hour glass thing going, only with much small boobs. HOWEVER........ since menopause and a thickening waistline - I have no idea what this body will be like when I reach my goal. Its a mystery! I will be posting before and afters when the time is right....... so I'll let you tell me what my body shape best matches.

                            • The hour glass thing is always really nice. That's one thing I've never had. I can't believe men find me attractive, but somehow they do.

                                Good God--the mesomorphs!!! Well, that's what I aspire to--if I could work a little harder!!

                                Yeah, that's about right though--think of the endos as more just more curvaceous and soft. Ectos are more like a lot of the models--they're more stick thin without much muscle. Meso means muscle. I think the whole thing is talking about ones natural physical form without intervention. I have a nephew who hasn't lifted one weight, but you should see the muscles on his frame--that's a true mesomorph in my opinion. My father is similar--had a natural muscular physique when he was young and still has some now that he's 82. Someone who is stick thin and doesn't need to try to be that way is a true ectomorph in my opinion. But ectomprphs don't really have a lot of muscle either--they're not just thin, they're more like skeletal. Anyone can change their physique with enough effort, but there's a tendancy for most people to have a natural physique and I guess that's what those body types mean.

                                My fiance is pretty much a natural ectomorph (like his father), but he's working really hard to change that and that's just it--it is taking a lot of effort for him to add on muscle, where as I put muscle on fairly easily. My problem is, I just let myself go and didn't pay as much attention to my diet for a few years, which of course added a nice fat layer to my muscle.........
