I'm linking up with Stacy to get random!
I see that Blogger has changed formats again. They did this previously but let us go back to the regular view, but this time I think it's permanent. In the new format, before, trying to post was S-L-O-W! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all the bugs were worked out.
Later today I am having a nuclear stress test. I'm nervous. I've had a regular stress test before, but not the nuclear kind. From the Mayo Clinic:
A nuclear stress test uses radioactive dye and an imaging machine to create pictures showing the blood flow to your heart. The test measures blood flow while you are at rest and are exerting yourself, showing areas with poor blood flow or damage in your heart.
It's that radioactive dye injection I'm nervous about, especially if it's through an IV. There's just something about needles! I've got two other heart tests scheduled later this week and next as they are trying to confirm or re-diagnose a heart defect I was born with. It hasn't given me trouble for many years, but lately, it has reared its ugly head. Prayers are welcome!
Changing the subject... if you have read my blog for a while, you know how I hate porta-potties. It's my goal to NEVER have to use one, but inevitably, I will likely need to some time in the future. The reason I mention it is there are architects in Tokyo who have created transparent public potties. What? Yes, transparent. They say that two concerns people have with portables are cleanliness and whether or not someone is in there. This solves both problems. But it is also discreet. They use a film (the same kind my husband had installed in the mission control room at NASA) that turns the glass walls opaque when you enter so you have some privacy. Interesting!
