I will be taking a break now that I am no longer allowed to do much but sit. Went to Dr and she had me go for an EKG so I could have the Colonostphy (mis spelled I'm sure) ...they found a problem so had to do more tests. They said no coffee or chocolate the day before (not a big deal and Nothing after midnight the night before..not even water.)
So I go Thurs morning for the tests and they put something nuclear in your veins and something else (not dye) then they watch a chart and I saw the nurse get a funny look on her face because when they raise my heart rate to the max it is supposed to come back down in 3 min. Mine was still up for 10 min so they gave me a nitro glycerin to put under my tongue. Test gave me the worst head ache (and I don't get headaches) and stomach pain ever. They said there were no side affects before the test and then they asked me if I had a head ache and I said yes and of course then they told me that was the side affects. Then I had to leave and go get coffee and food and come back in 90 minutes for pictures of my heart. Laid on a table with a big machine going back and forth. Then they said I could go home. I was having problems breathing (and still am) and they told me that was side affects.
Then I had to go back on Friday for another test and they took pictures again and sent me home. Not supposed to do anything strenuous or lift anything (so I can kiss my new flower beds that are dying from the heat good by) It was not like they said but I guess if they would have told me all this ahead of time I might not have went.
Now I have to wait for them to call me Monday or Tuesday and then go to cardiologist on the 17th and I am sure they will want to put stints in. I am not looking forward to any of this and I am very depressed and have more fibro pain in back and neck (from stress and aggravation)
I will go on the computer as much as I can and will be listing on ebay as often as I can since that is not strenuous. I will be checking blogs but won't be posting for a while. I am to depressed to think of anything good to write about. I will be back when things are a little more normal (if that does happen)
Sorry to write such a gloom and doom post but just wanted to let my blogger friends know what is going on
Texas Longhorns in Florida?
