Sorry I've really been missing in action here!
But I heard all the screams every time you all came here
looking, hoping, pleading
for a new post...
Okay, back to reality.
Just a quick update on what's going on.
A few weeks ago I had an episode of a rapid heart beat.
We thought it was from the medicine I was on.
I had two other episodes last week.
The first one woke me up again at around 3:00 in the morning.
I made it to the doctor by 9:30, who then sent me to a heart specialist, who then proceeded to hook me up to an IV and inject some medicine into my heart to get my heart rate
down from 150.
The next night it happened again.
Only I had medicine this time and was able to take the medicine
and get my heart down from the 137 it climbed to.
Seems I'm having a tiny, little problem with stress.
So I am now on two different medications to deal with the heart racing problem.
I've had 4 EKG's and an echo cardiogram.
Everything is normal with my heart.
I just need to get the stress under control.
While all this is going on, I had to go for an MRI on my right hip.
I mentioned to my doctor a few weeks ago that my legs were
hurting really bad in the mornings.
He started pulling on my legs and felt something weird on my right hip.
He sent me for an xray which came back showing something on my right hip.
I went for the MRI last Friday.
Monday afternoon the doctor calls and says there's 2 somethings...
I have no other word to use...
of "unknown etiology" on my right hip.
So now I'm going to a specialist tomorrow to see what I'm dealing with.
I think one thing is for sure.
I need to make sure the medicine that controls my heart rate is with me!
Oh and I need to tell you all about my fall from the platform at church this past Sunday.
Life sure has gotten interesting around here!
