I will cross that bridge when I get to it

Well shortly after I hit the share button for this post I am heading off to the medical center to do my Cardiac Treadmill Stress test, so wish me luck

For those now sure what the test is in simple terms they hook monitors up on your body to track blood flow and heart rate in various spots, get you on a treadmill and start you off walking and speed it up to get your heart rate up to a set rate per your age, as I understand it is 220 less your age, so for me that would be to get my heart rate up to 156.

I am not worried about the test at all, but it is a key step in determining if I have the surgery the Onclologist has scheduled for the 5th of Feb, if I pass it the Cardiologist will clear me for the surgeryon the 23rd if not, ohh well as the title of this post says I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

BUt I have bene doign each morning after my VR workout jogging on the spot for 5 to 10 minutes and monitoring my heart rate on my apple watch and have a few times got it up over the 156 rate without any chest pains or anything so I am hoping it all goes well

But getting back to the title and Bridges today I am goign to share a few shots taking at the Fall River Heritage State Park and focusing on the Braga bridge

I call it the Braga Bridge but its full name is The Charles M. Braga Jr. Memorial Bridge, also known as simply The Braga, is a through truss bridge that carries Interstate 195 over the Taunton River between the town of Somerset and the city of Fall River, near the mouth of the Quequechan River at the confluence with Mount Hope Bay. At just over a mile long, it is one of the longest bridges in Massachusetts. Opened to traffic on April 15, 1966

It is lit up with a blue color at night on previous visits i made ot the park the lights on the bridge were off so I wa spleasantly surprised the morning i took these to see the lights stil on

Beautiful long exposures, I have yet to master the art of finding a spot where I can get crisp images like that. Thank you for sharing.

I am lucky to have a few spots by the water that I visit that fit well with long exposure images

You really need to try and make it through Battle Ship Cove sometime when you have all this messy medical stuff behind you. It's been decades since I have been there, but I remember it was quite cool. I hope things go well with your test today!

Yes you are right maybe this year I will make it there and check it out

Wishing you a good and sound health friend. Nice photos of the bridge.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

I'm praying that all goes well 🙏 What surgery are you hoping to have?

I think it would be fun to go see the warships!

Had a bit of a hiccup with the Stress test not with my heart but with my oxygen levels, and they stopped the treadmill and then went with the injection to up my heart rate
strange thing is I felt good was talking and sure my breathing got a bit faster but I felt fine, and then whent hey stopped the treadmill and moved me onto the stretcher for the injection literally less than a minute later and they put on the oxygen meter thingy it was up at 97&% which for me is good

Not so much a surgery I want, but I have have genetic trait making me at very high risk for Colon Cancer and the drs feel 6 monthly colonoscopies are not going to keep it at Bay so they plan they have is to remove most of my colon

Wow, hopefully you can get everything sorted without any complications 🙏

The phrase "I will cross that bridge when I come to it" is like a metaphor for life, it is full of bridges that we must cross, some are easy others difficult, but we must always be willing to cross them and live it with calm and confidence. Good luck in your medical test!

Thanks Wes
I will find out the result son Tuesday

Wishing the best for you.

Good luck with your running exam! !LOL

Wonderful shots of Braga bridge, wishing you the very best with the cardiac stress test. I am sure you will pass and be cleared for surgery. From your jogging on the spot results, I am confident you will ace the cardiac stress test. Do keep us updated on the outcomes.
Otherwise happy weekend :}

Thanks so much thats what I thought

I felt the test was going well I was walking away on the treadmill feeling good and got my heart up to about 120 and the goal they had was to get it to 133, then the oxtgen level thingy on my finger dropped to 89% I said i felt good was breathing a bit heavy but still talking and feeling fine, but they stopped the treadmill and moved me onto a stretcher to increase heart rate with a medication, maybe less than a minute after they stopped me the put the finger thingy back on and my oxygen level showed as 97% which is good for me so it all seemed weird to me

as for the results, I felt fine all through it sso am hopeful, but guess I will find out on Tuesday

I need to trust the doctors recommendations and do what is needed, but putting off the surgery is a bit of a concern, but what will be will be

Still wishing you the very best, no matter the outcome :}

Thanks truly appreciated
