Really short

I will sum this up quick.  Checking to see  if everything is ok with the heart, chest xray, cardio study, 5 vials of blood. and tomorrow I have to go back for the breathing test, tomorrow at 2:15.  The lady that was doing the cardio thing had me turn on my left side while she did tests and then told me I could go back on my back.  She said, “we don’t see this very often”.  She said the heart usually stays in one place when we turn and she said mine slid sideways.  Didn’t seem to think there was anything wrong with it.  Dr, watched me walk and said he thought the hip could even have a slight fracture. but he said definitely on looking back on my records the first orthopedist I went to indicated my hip had deteriorated a lot.  That was about 2 years ago.    Not going to know much more until he gets my tests back.  All I could see was $$$ signs wracking up.  Joe and Spunky came home and I called them when I was done.  I am totally exhausted so will get back on soon.

Lucy, was that an echo-cardiogram that the lady did? Was she able to check your heart valves?

I was short of breath but they had to add an inhaler for my asthma. They also have to check the heart to see if it is cardiac related.

I know all these test can wear you out it does me just thinking about them. I hope all is well with your test. I have to go back in April and get another echo-cardiogram after he found the mummer four years ago he wants to check my heart ever two years. Take care and I hope you can get some rest.


Tests can be exhuasting. I'm sure you'll be happy when they just tell you what is wrong.

Hope you get a good report and
nothing major. It is not fun
having all those test. That is
the first time I heard of a heart
moving excepting doing it thing beating. I hope that is not serious.

I know you are worn out just thinking about going to the Dr.
makes me tired. Try to get some
rest and let Joe do some cooking.
