Here's the trick

When your born start out your life eating really healthy, then when you get older your arteries won't be clogged and you can enjoy that fried chicken, biscuits, gravy, pecan pie, etc.

But now here we are with sodium, fats and sugar are evil,  lurking everywhere. Oh don't even get me started on the calorie counting.   Keeping us healthy has always been at the top of the list.  Retirement is easy it's the rules of life that make it difficult. It isn't that one does not want to change their eating habits, it's hard to change your taste buds.  

Grilled  chicken and salads are fine but to a point.  But we all know that moderation is the key.  I will accept all recipes emailed to me as long as there is NO kale, green tea or spinach smoothies.

So here we are at this stage in our life about to celebrate our 40th anniversary and my dear Mr Doodles has been recently diagnosed with plaque.  Nope not your easy to remove dental plaque, oh no he got some sticky arterial plaque diagnosed by a cardiologist.

So now the next step is the roto rooter dude, aka cardiologist is going to remove that plaque.  Should be an easy procedure "they say". 

Here's a question if your heart and most of your arteries are positioned around your upper left hand side of your body/chest, why would the cardiologist go in thru your groin waaaaaaay down there.  Couldn't they train dentists to do  angio whatevers and go in thru your mouth, it's a lot closer.  It's just the way my mind works folks.

As always

I do love the way your mind works! And I promise not to send you the spinach smoothie recipe again. ♥

I agree with your way of thinking..... the real question does the cardiologist? I think you should tell him about your idea - who knows it may not have ever crossed his mind that the direct way is the easiest way to go.

When is Mr. Doodles having his procedure?

I like the way you think... and I bet that cardiologist does too.
As an OB Nurse Practitioner, I have a few questions of my own. :-)

another friday's favorite for sure!
