Perfect Heart

I had my "annual" heart check-up on Thursday and Friday.
Kira and Hazel were my travel companions.

Thursday was full of lab work, echo, xrays, dex-a-scan plus my clinic visit.
On Friday,
I had my biopsy, right heart catherization, and heart pressure tests.
It was so cool to watch the ink flow through the perfect arteries and viens of my heart.
The picture here doesn't do it justice.
(The 8 shaped wires are the wires that were placed on the sturnum when I had my heart transplant)
Thursday after all the appointments we went to the LDS Church History Museum.
While looking at the many office items of Brigham Young, Miss H was sure that the retangle picture had to be a computer. She "typed" away while Kira and I were looking around.
 We all enjoyed the part that has all the different things from the Latter-day Prophets.

The theme of the compition is “Make Known His Wonderful Works”
There were so many amazing pieces of art.
 Love to See the Temple Chest

Mary Jane Smith, b. 1952, Utah

You can see all the exibits here

We went and walked through the children's section.

 at that point of the visit Hazel decided it was nap time.
It might have been a good thing she went to sleep, because we might not have been able to get her to leave all of the hands on things for children to do in this part of the museum

The temple grounds were beautiful as always.
The roses smelled heavenly.

All of my lab results were wonderful!
The doctors were very excited to see my results, almost as excited as I was.

Kira, Hazel and I decided we needed to celebrate with a very yummy dinner.
I had ordered Crab Legs.
Miss H was sure she wanted to try them.

 I thought for sure one taste and she would give it back...
 Nope, SHE LOVED IT!!!
I broke her off a piece and she ate every bit of it!
 Thankgoodness, we NOW know she does not have a shell fish allergy.

Friday, after the Cath Lab the doctors came in and visited and said how happy they were with all of my results and said I could leave to go home and they would call with the biopsy results.
I was really excited that they said I could "GO HOME", usually they tell me I have to stay in the area until the biopsy results come back.
When they called with the results they told me it was the BEST results I have ever had!!!!
Love this heart!
