Will This Heat Ever End?

Hiker and I slept in some today and then got up and went for a morning walk. It was already about 79° at 8:15 am when we headed out the door. We were lazy the rest of the day as it was 102° outside. At least it was not as humid as it has been for the past few days. For my Lockheed friends, thought I'd mention that Karren Meggitt called me from Idaho last night. She and Wally have been traveling in their 5th wheel and they were heading to Karren's sister's house in Coeur d'Alene, ID and stopped by Karren's niece just before arriving in Coeur d'Alene. Wally had been feeling sick so Karren's niece who is a nurse looked at him and took him to the ER at the hospital where she works. The discovered that Wally had suffered a minor heart attack and they have diagnosed him with congestive heart failure. They admitted him to the hospital and have been draining the fluid from his lungs and are running tests to make certain there has been no damage to the kidneys or liver. The cardiologist feels that he will recover and be just fine. His heart problem goes back to the days he was taking Phen Fen to lose weight many years ago. He has had heart problems ever since.
