Well, went to the doctor on Friday. MY GP whom I haven't seen in quite awhile. Have been just dealing with the gyno, who decided I needed to see another doctor to check out my heart. He had his nurse do an EKG and put a holter monitor on me. I turned in the holter monitor on March 20th. Well, I still haven't heard from the doctor. So, I called three damned times to see what was going on. So, decided to go back to my GP that I hadn't seen in awhile (insurances changes, etc. took me away from him). So, I got frustrated and made an appt. He listened (which I haven't been experiencing) to my symptoms, did blood work, did a chest x-ray, kidney function test, tested for congestive heart failure, etc. All of the tests were negative. He changed my BP medicine and put me on a stronger diuretic to help with the edema. Put me on some allergy meds, cuz the sinuses are driving me crazy, and started me on something for the anxiety. We will see how that goes. I am feeling ok today. Still having breathing problems. Though we don't know why I am doing this, at least we ruled out blood clots and heart problems. I at least had a doctor sit and explain things to me and not make me feel like I was stupid. It makes me feel better in that respect.
We worked out in the yard all day today. It was nice to have the sun on my face! I truly enjoyed it. I sure am glad daylight savings time is here, I was beginning to feel like a mushroom (in the dark all the time). Had lots of energy today too, so that made me feel good!
I was off Friday so having an extra day off has made me happy as well! Counting down the days to the beach though. I know, I am counting my life away, huh? Naw, just gives me something to look forward to!
