T’s Heart Journey: The Angiogram

I heard the best news this afternoon! Today was my angiogram to see if I had blocked arteries in my heart. My stress test and blood work came back with a 50-50 chance that I could have an issue. So, my cardiologist felt the best thing to do was the have the angiogram. It took only 10 minutes before I heard his words: You have no blocked arteries in your heart!

R1Day7: Playing with Flexbox Froggy

My #100DaysofCode R1ReDo has been moving slowly, but at least it’s moving. I tried out CSS Grid Garden in January. However, I put my coding aside to deal with a health issue. Now that I’m recovering on medical leave, I’m more determined to be consistent with learning how to code. (Well, at least for these next two weeks.) Today, Day 7, I decided to play around with Flexbox Froggy. Then, I worked on my JavaScript tutorials on FreeCodeCamp.org. I needed to review the basics before I started working on my projects again. Flexbox seemed like a great place to start. Those little frogs were very helpful!

Stuck in Grid Garden: Day3ReBoot #100DaysOfCode

I should’ve known today would be tough. As I started my CSS Grid Garden puzzles, my WiFi went out. (My account said it was working, my devices said Nope!) I had 5 more puzzles left (#25-28), so of course, my modem would act up. After ten minutes of restarting my modem and Roku (was watching Midsomer Murders), I was ready to code my grid garden. My fun didn’t last long. I got stuck on Puzzle 26. I understood and completed puzzles 25 and 27. However, for 26, I couldn’t get the pixels (px) and fractional (fr) parts correct to water everything except for the top 50px of the garden. I’m still stuck! Hopefully, I’ll be able to figure it out tomorrow, so I can move on to #28.

My Chest Infection Has Decided to Stay

Not happy that the first round of antibiotics didn’t take care of this chest infection. Today, I found out from a coworker that it took her a month before she felt better. I’m on my third week! I’m hoping that my chicken soup and medicine (Mucinex) will work. It’s hard being upbeat and brilliant in front of my students when I’m breathing like I just climbed a mountain.
