I hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day...it is hard to believe we are already half way through February?! February is heart month and so G and I went and had an EBT scan done as part of our quest for a healthy life. EBT is short for Electron Beam Tomography. It takes 5 minutes and doesn't require any prep. The down side is it is not covered by insurance...the upside...it is only $99. Which is a deal to find out if you have plaque in your arteries. I am sharing this with you because G and I took a few moments out of our lives to have the scan and guess what, he has ZERO plaque in his arteries...not so good for me. It wasn't a surprise because of my family history. But, I was crossing my fingers during the scan. My score was 25 which is mild but there is plaque. I was so happy that I was already on the path to changing habits and this just reaffirmed that what I am doing is only going to help me. With the support of G, my son and DIL and the book recommended by them..."How Not To Die" (great title) I am ready to get rid of the plaque without medicine! I have so many projects that I need at least another 20 years!!! I encourage you all...because I care about you...to get an EBT scheduled!
I am taking a little break from my sewing and going to go play with my sister. I plan on working on some cross stitch!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
