Finally got into the doctors today, and as the title implies, I am now wearing a heart monitor for 24 hours. It never acts out when the monitor is around, just like A teenager wont sneak out if the parent is looking! I dont think I have mentioned it, But at the age of 37, In 2003, I had a minor heart attack, I didn’t even know it.
You see on T.V. where they grab their chest and fall to their knees…..Well I didn’t have anything like that, I had some tension in my left shoulder, and the place where they take blood? on the other side of the elbow, that FELT like I was having blood drawn. So I went in and they drew blood and sent me home, and I went camping or something and found out that over the weekend they had Frantically called me as it seemed I “could” have a Major heart attack (something about the enzymes in your blood?). Anyway, the Doctor ordered a stress test following protocol , and then wanted to do a heart catheterization But the ins. refused to cover it as there was not enough evidence that I NEEDED a catheterization. Now it looks like I am having one soon…. Has anyone ever had one?
I am not thrilled, but at the same time, I can feel the decline in my health, and I really love life, and am not ready to leave this place, I am not afraid to die, I just don’t want to! I am in awe every day with the whole of everything! Trees, grass, animals, people, stars, oceans, mountains…….I am so into it all, that I cant imagine being anywhere else. I am retaining water for no apparent reason, and I did have chest pain, but after returning to the 2003 doctor 3 times with what I THOUGHT was chest pain, it was only my stomach, So I assumed that the pain I had On Saturday was just more stomach pain. I wonder how your suppose to tell the difference?
So no poetic “prose” today, I Will Be pretty limited and chill for the rest of the day, because this Dangling Monitor is just in the way of most things I would do. Maybe I will have a cuppa, and a nap on the couch! That’s always a cozy thing! and maybe watch some You tube on my T.V.! Did you know you can do that? If you have fast internet and a wireless Blue Ray Player? Pretty sweet! and You’s who Do Vlogs? you look GREAT on the big screen!!! WOOT!
