Ed's first-ever massage

After spending hours at the hospital today (Monday) getting Eddie's MRI, our friend Pat came over and gave my sweetie his first-ever massage. To be honest I was surprised that Ed was open to this--for him--untraditional body treatment. Even more surprising was that it was HIS idea. You have to understand, Eddie comes from a medical family. His father and uncle were doctors, and he and his brother became doctors as well. Now, Eddie is 78 years old and often shows his age in his rather old-fashioned attitudes about holistic medical practices. For instance, I've tried to encourage him to go to my acupuncturist for his recent pain condition, but he'll have none of it. So when he asked Pat if they could schedule a massage, it surprised both of us. But obviously he was serious. And I gather it was a positive experience for him. Of course Pat is an exceptionally gifted massage therapist, so he was in good hands. And I get to benefit too. She left her table here and is coming back tomorrow (Tuesday) to give me a massage as well. Lucky me!

I'm sure he enjoyed is great in loosening up those sore muscles and gets the blood flowing. Holistic medicine and conventional medicine can work together quite well. Enjoy your's tomorrow!
