Good morning! No, good afternoon! It is almost one o’clock in the afternoon.

I had to be at the hospital at 7:30 this morning for my stress test. It did not work out well. My blood pressure was 156/117. No stress test on the tread mill. Instead they lay me down and shot some nuclear stuff into me. The test was over in 30 seconds.

I was also given a super dooper pill to bring my blood pressure down.

I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon to see the doctor.

Drinking and smoking are gone again. More exercise needed. Probably walking. New prescriptions.

Such is life.

There is some humor in all this. I told the docrtor I had not been exercising, joined a gym to box and do the tread mill, and only made it to the gym one time. That was good, he said. Had I been on the tread mill, I could have had problems because of the blood pressure. Maybe a stroke.

Ergo, my laziness regarding the gym was a blessing in disguise.

My internet show will not be tommorow as scheduled. I still have about 2.5 hors work today to do alone and with Jenna in final preparation for the show. It is work under pressure. I am taking this week off. Last week’s show will be rerun. It was exceptionally good. If you wish to view it, the show will be available at 10 in the morning at

Enough for now. I am going to bed and put my head under the covers for the rest of the afternoon.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Lou, listen to your doc. It would be a shame to work all your life and retire to paradise only to self destruct. Healthy habits are a good thing. Maybe your "buddies" should encourage you and not enable you.

  2. Lou give all of the incredibly bad situation your children have caused for you, it is absolutely no wonder you are living under a mountain of stress. I've been watching the situation rather there in Utica closely and it seems their troubles have just begun.

    You need to point yourself away from that shipwreck before the undertow pulls you down.

    Rest easy knowing you went above and beyond for your family. Maybe too far, they have no idea how to fend for themselves. That's not a crime on your part.
