We drove to the house mid morning, but no one was there. We walked around a bit anyway and then stopped by the grocery store for some fruit before heading back to the motorhome for lunch. Since the…[ more photos and article through here]
Yesterday Andrew accompanied me to St Vincent’s nuclear Medicine department for a Sestamibi Scan, called ” Mibi” for short, of my heart.
The process involves a baseline scan without any medium followed by a period of rest, you can read about everything through these links here.
A sestamibi (MIBI) scan is a test that measures the amount of blood being supplied to your heart.
A sestamibi (MIBI) scan measures the amount of blood being supplied to your heart. The scan is done in two parts:
What Is A Nuclear Heart Scan?
A nuclear heart scan is a type of heart disease test. It is also known as nuclear stress testing and radionuclide myocardial perfusion imaging. It is performed to assess the condition and health of the heart. During the test, a doctor will inject a radioactive material or dye called a tracer through the vein into the bloodstream. The tracer travels along the veins towards the heart and special cameras outside the body can trace its journey. Two sets of images will be taken. First, the patient will undergo an exercise stress test or chemical stress test so that their blood flow can be monitored while ‘stressed’. The second set of images will be taken several hours or a few days later when the patient is at rest. The two sets of images will be compared for signs of any blockages and areas of damaged heart muscle. [ http://www.womens-health-advice.com/heart-disease/testing.html ]
Also used to gauge the damage to the heart by things such as S.C.A.D.
All in all the scan only took 4 hours rather than the 6 mentioned and wasn’t as scary as we had thought.
Due to the radioactivity I was warned to take a taxi home and to stay away from people for 48 hours until the Technetium Tc 99m sestamibi reached safer levels.. Andrew and I took the long blue and white taxi home raight to our doorstep and went out shopping today after I came home from respite.

I feel somewhat tired and done it and have gone to bed early these past few nights but will be opening the Shed at Kooloora tomorrow.
Another wonderful story to caper through by a nutty rock – diamond, I believe.

Here’s a painting I experimented with a bit, both in format and with paper stock. Last week I was driving towards Hudson on the road that runs along the lake. It was such a brutally cold day — made worse by the frigid squalls blowing across the field — that I couldn’t have painted in my car. […]
Here are a selection of photos Andrew and I took on our recent P&O cruise up and down the NSW Coast. We sailed on the Pacific Pearl. I contracted the novo virus and was confined to our stateroom for most of the cruise. Most photod were taken on the first two days and very few on Sunday morning. Many from the window as we looked out on the world. TV was good and room service fair.
Gratitude. Passion. Advocacy.
