Diagnostic Thoughts

-sarcasm: I love sitting in line at the doctor’s office, dentist, etc. /sarcasm

-Guess what I am doing as I type this blog out. 🙂

-Here’s the deal, two nights ago, I woke up around 3 am with a pulsating pain in my chest, like intense heart burn. I went to work the next day anyway, but the pain didn’t go down.

-I ended up leaving work early to see the doctor, waited there, explained all the symptoms. Apparently I do have heart burn, GERD to be exact.

-I am here at the diagnostic center to get an x-ray to see if I might have a hiatal hernia, possibly aggravated by the coughing from my cold earlier in the week.

-The doctor gave me some medicine and it has made a world of difference. It’s no fun dealing with intense pain that will not stop and give you a break. Sometimes it makes you feel like you will go out of your mind.

-This past Saturday, my mom and dad celebrated their fortieth anniversary. Marcela, Kelly, Trav, their kids, and I went to my mom and dad’s place for dinner. My dad snuck my mom out of the house while Marcela and Kelly decorated. Food was catered and we put out 40 red roses that my dad purchased. Kelly and Marcela waited on the table and served each course. For dessert, we had homemade coconut and pineapple ice cream served in coconut shells to commemorate my mom and dad’s engagement dinner at the Columbia in Ybor City where it was served in the same manner. The night was great fun!

-This time next week, I will be on the gun range for annual qualifications with my 9mm, AR 15, and all the other training requals. Most people hate it, but I actually enjoy it.

-The only thing I don’t like about it anymore is that they no longer let us train on our off days. That means I will lose quite a bit of pay since our training days are about 10 hours long instead of 12.

-Marcela and I watched October Sky a couple nights ago. It’s a great family film based on a true story about some kids from West Virginia who learn about the science of rocket engineering. The town and their family at first make fun of them and give them a hard time, but their teacher inspires them to work hard at what they are doing. I highly recommend this film!
