Busy day

Marshall stayed home today and dealt with a water leak in the master bathroom.  Gina was here to help coordinate things and to watch the animals.

Yesterday I got an email from my cardiologist telling me to be sure to take my Metropolol pill this morning (it's a medication that slows down the heart rate).  I told her it seemed kind of counterproductive to take a medication to slow down the heart rate at the same time I'm going to be getting on a treadmill trying to raise the heart rate.  But she insisted that I take the medication.

She also surprised me with the news that when she went over the results of my 14-day Holter heart monitor, she is leaning towards recommending a pacemaker.  But she wanted to see the stress test results first.

So when I arrived at the hospital today the nurses/technicians said that I should NOT have taken the medication prior to a stress test.  (Duh)  But we decided to go ahead with the treadmill anyway.  I was supposed to get my heart rate up to 128.  I gave it my all, but I could only get it to 108, so they stopped the treadmill test and switched over to Plan B -- a chemically induced stress test.  But even with the confusion, I think it went well.  The cardiologist even sent me an apology for making me take the Metropolol.  At least she knows that I could have made it to 128bpm if it weren't for her!

So now I wait for all my test results and I see the cardiologist on June 3 to go over everything.  I don't know why she is waiting so long to see me, but I'm taking that a a sign that she does not feel it is an emergency.

When I got home, I learned that we need a new toilet in the master bathroom.  So tomorrow morning Marshall and I will be heading to Home Depot.  In the meantime, we just keep putting towels on the floor.

Other than that, Marshall had a quiet day.  He has no pain but is just fatigued all the time, can't get any real energy going.

  1. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (priests olalude abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,gambling voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,cancer voodoo,Trouble in marriage,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
