Papa’s World – five and one half years – MPI TEST

My heart attack occurred on 11-4-13 –

beginning a new life.

GOOD MORNING

My last visit to my heart doctor –

He told me it was time to have Myocardial Perfusion Imaging test.

We would schedule it before my next appointment –

Yesterday – at 7:15 am. it began.

For the next 3 to 4 hours –

I was undergoing scans – injections –

Blood pressure readings –

treadmill and more injections and scans.

MY WIFE AND ADVOCATE

The injections were a Nuclear medicine –

to go into the heart through a IV –

and then 18 minutes of scanned picture taking while being absolutely still.

SO CAN NUCLEAR TESTS

I was worried –

first – I do not like needles –

and to have something like that injected into your artery !!!

You sign a form –

some side effects may be HEART ATTACK or DEATH !

OR REMAIN POSITIVE & TRUST IN GOD

The TREAD MILL – I was all hooked up –

I had to hit a heart rate of 129 to 150 –

IT TOOK TEN MINUTES

and they increased the incline and speed every three minutes.

Had I been in a car instead of the tread mill –

I would of done just that !

I DO NOT RUN –

I DO NOT LIKE TO RUN –

I HURT MYSELF WHEN I RUN !

In the ten minutes I was on there –

I DID ONE MILE !

LORD HELP ME !!!

The last 2 .5 minutes were at a 4.2 minute mile !

I am 70 years old –

dancing is more my speed !

When I had cooled down –

she told me –

your treadmill for your age

IS VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT !!!!!

My prayers were answered –

I did not slip off –

I hung on –

And I finished it !

ME

I had to go back a second time for a scan –

and then sit and wait.

Before I started – they told me –

if anything is wrong –

you will go upstairs

If it is all right – you go home –

I WENT HOME – all clear !

MY WHY

On the way home – they called me –

They had read the scans –

they could see the OLD HEART ATTACK –

THERE WAS NO SIGN OF ANYTHING ELSE HAPPENING !!

I was clear –

my cholesterol at my last test – 118 !!!!

WHY – WHAT -and HOW ?

WHY ?

My wife Sherry and following her schedule – and JUICE PLUS !

Those are my TWO REASONS WHY –

WHAT – healthy eating

and my supplement –

ORCHARD – GARDEN – VINEYARD and OMEGA’S

Five and one half years after my WIDOW MAKER –

I am clear –

I am me –

And that my friends is HOW I beat the odds !

SHERRY & TOM

I have friends out there

who have had HEART problems –

My advice –

find a partner to motivate you –

And then find a whole food supplement

with RESEARCH !

I found mine –

Papa’s World – home is where the flowers grow

A panoramic view of our patio.

All through our years (37 ) of marriage – we have planted flowers and landscaping. In our home today – we await Spring with a eye to the beauty of FLOWER’S !

View of the back with our two Tower Gardens – bird bath and replanted Geranium’s from previous years. And to the left a portable pot of POTATO’S a first foe me.

Our first step every early Spring is preparing our two Tower Gardens for the growing season – April thru end of October. We also have one inside the garage with grow lights so we are eating fresh produce – November thru end of March – making our fresh produce growing year around.

Patio with flower ” Bicycle ” we purchase years ago at a garden show !

Yesterday – we went to Home Depot – to select different flowers and then potted them and placed in the patio. EXTRA BENEFIT unknown to us at check out – the man said – sign up for credit card today and receive $70.00 off your purchase – DEAL ! We payed $20.00 – rest was a credit and as soon as we got home – paid the credit card off !

One of two flower boxes on the walled in patio.

The flower boxes will be much bigger as the season progress’s. We try a different theme every year – Sherry picks the theme – my duty is ” It is not for me to question why – but for me to do or die ” !!

In a marriage – good motto to live by !

We found this flower pot holder in the trash years ago and reclaimed it – I painted it a couple days ago.


Always like sitting by flowers when sipping my coffee – the cushions we take in if it is going to rain.
A stand alone pot holder which I repainted a couple days ago.

85 % of our plants that are in the beds – come back each year – so mostly – only a few do we purchase to plant in them – geraniums – we pull every year and put them in a bucket and hang from the ceiling – cleaning them up in the Spring and replant them – saving 90 % of them !

One of many flowering bushes we have that come out each year.

The twin bush that was shown before – on each end of the fence.


Front step on the porch.

This year we tried one more thing – Potato’s – we planted eight – five among our strawberry patch ( every year we pulled them in the Fall from the Tower Garden – and stuck them in the ground on the side of the house – 12 to 15 quarts last year ) and three more in a portable container – this is a first for me – not sure what to expect but they already are 16 inches high !

One of the beds out front with just the two planted flowers – rest come back every year along with our deep red – pink and light pink roses.

The beds in the front have a combination of colors Spring – Summer and Fall . Reds – pinks – yellows -purples – whites and many off shades. I also have planted Crepe Myrtles ( 3 of them ) that bloom late May and continue until late Fall – a deep ruby red !

All in all – Spring plantings are my favorite time of year -one that continues until the harsh cold of Fall and Winter.

Living life to the plus includes for me sights of Spring – Summer and Fall. I do not like the cold – ice and snow !

Eating healthy from our Tower Gardens ( even edible flowers) and enjoying nature in bloom – bringing a calm – for me lower blood pressure !

I hope you liked my little tour – and remember –
