Well..I thought I would go to the Cardiologists and he would say..."You have too much stress, go home and stop worrying so much." But he didnt. When he walked in I said " How was that EKG?" and he said " It could have been better." So as a result, I have to go for the whole works....stress test, echo and whatever else they throw at me. Am I nervous???? hahahahah ..does a fat dog fart? I panicked, was a total mess. Of course Janice ( and her husband was with me). Afterwards we went to Damons b/c I truly needed a drink.

I have pictures but blogger wont allow me to post them for some crazy reason. My daughterinlaw, Leslie came and picked me up several hours later and took me home. As soon as I got into the car with Leslie I started crying again, and you know there is nothing worse than a crying drunk! lol. But I have to say I have the best daughterinlaw in the whole world. She helped me get into bed and I went to sleep and woke up with the worst hangover ever the next morning.

As soon as the Doctor schedules the tests Ill know more. Until them I am trying to remain calm. Please keep me in your prayers, I dont handle this stuff well. My daughter Ashley said to me, "Im not trying to be rude, but Mom how long did you think you could eat what you want, smoke, not exercise, and be overweight????" I said " well I guess I thought I could do it forever." Obviously not. Time to wake up and smell the coffee.

Oh honey I'm sorry to hear you're so worried about the tests. I'm sure you'll be fine - though you may have to give up smoking! In the meantime I'm sending you Reiki (hope you can accept it) to calm your fears and start the healing. xxx

Do what makes you happy Catch, and stop going to the doctor's for check ups. Tina says hi by the way. I do the ironing, the decorating and now I'm doing her typing for her!

Catch. Thanks for updating.

Keep in mind that it is always, ALWAYS better to know about things early on. Treatment is always easier the earlier you catch it.

Cyberhuggles!

I've been thinking of you since your last post and praying for good news, I'm sorry to hear it wasn't so cut and dried and that he now wants you to have more tests. I can only imagine how stressed you are and now w/this worrying on top of it. I know it won't help to say try not to worry, but it's hard to do just that! Just know that you have a lot of people praying for you!! Hugs coming your way!

Waiting for answers is hard. I also have to do the life style change. I had one week good one week bad, this is a new week. I will pray for you.

THe good news is it's probably nothing. The bad news is what makes you think they will let you keep smelling the coffee.

Take care of yourself, you are worth all of it!

Kat said...

This just sucks, since my lifestyle is quite similar to yours. You'll stay in my prayers and I truly believe that a positive mental attitude does wonders for reversing all kinds of illness.

Catch- sorry to hear the tests caused you even more stress! Still praying for you!

Dave said...

I hate going in for these tests also. I have to go in Friday for an Echocardiogram. I get one done every year. The test is really nothing and there are no side effects. The mind is what play havoc with you.
I am confident that you will do well and the doc will tell you what you already know, stop smoking, eat right and exercise. Then you will go home and make yourself a promise to comply some of his advice and start to change.
Good luck and smile. You know we are here for you.

Nea said...

Yeh, yeh, I know, I know.......we got to eat right, drink water, get plenty of exercise, get to bed early, ....hopefully they will at least let you STILL smell the coffee.....

Wish you lived closer, we could suffer together..... :):) They no longer will let me eat what I want either. Luckily I never did smoke or drink, but I hate to exercise for the sake of exercise. I tell them, I work in the garden, and that is never good enough for them.

Best wishes Catch.....keeping a good thought for you.
