    I just got a call from Dr. Patel (surgeon)'s nurse. In my pre-surgery tests yesterday the EKG had some abnormality. So now I have to see my primary care doctor who is to decide whether I am fit for surgery now or need to have more tests.

    I called Dr. Shore (primary care doctor)'s office, have an appointment to see her Thursday.

    So the surgery may be postponed regardless of what's going on with the apartment!

    Then again, maybe all my anxiety and distress over the apartment and cats stuff affected the EKG. My blood pressure reading was really high yesterday, and it's been excellent forever.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

Then, when they are done with the bedroom move all the living room stuff into the bedroom, including the bedroom room floor stuff you had put in the living room. When they are completely finished, move everythig back to its appropriate room and enjoy your new carpet!
    Hi katladyd, just what kind of "floor stuff" did you have to move? I have a number of packing crates set up on their sides on the floor, some on top of others, with things in them. And stacking containers that hold things like socks. Did you have to move things like that?

    Did you have to move stuff like books in bookcases? Things on top of tables? ..Things that aren't on the floor as such but might fall off or out when they have to more the tables and bookcases.

    I have a coat-rack with several coats hanging from it. How about that, do you think?

    I'm reluctant to call the office. First of all, this Cathy is brand-new, and I doubt she knows all the answers to things like that. And they are VERY busy this week with eleven move-outs in the next few days and who knows how many new occupants coming.

    And I don't want someone from the staff coming over to see what I'm talking about and an excess cat possibly not hiding quickly enough!

    Thanks very much! I'm working hard at getting stuff together and am hoping for the best with it all.

    They wanted everything but my heavy furniture out of the room. This meant bean bag chairs, floor lamps, any chair but the sofa, coffee tables, and they wanted all the books off of my bookshelves. In the bedroom there wasn't as much. Just a clothes hamper, nightstands, and an atique trunk I had in there. I also had to move all of my son's things, like his computer and computer desk, wrestlig ring (toy, with action figures, and some decorative crates (but he helped with that, it was his room. I slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room). It was in the summer months, too. Not fun!
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    It seems us old ladies run on the same path, Pat. A few years ago I was scheduled for knee surgery to repair torn cartilage, and it got cancelled the day before I was scheduled because of an "abnormal" EKG. The anesthesiologist flat out refused to put me under until I was cleared by a cardiologist. So many expensive (paid by Medicare) tests and procedures and a couple of months later, I was released. And the diagnosis as to what was "abnormal"???? - nothing - not a thing was wrong - just the way some people's results show up. So after carotid artery and abdominal aorta ultrasounds, stress test, echocardiogram, more EKG's, cardiac catheterization, and then repeats of a few of those, I was released for the knee surgery. But by then, I just said the heck with it, and I've never had it done. But a least the test results are on record for any future surgery - and it came in handy to have available when I had the back done in May. At least I didn't have to go thru all that b.s. again.

    So good luck on your doctor appointment on Thursday - and may your "abnormality" just be a fluke -like mine was.

    Thanks, Ellie. I guess they can't be too careful. I'll let you all know what happens tomorrow.
