I went for the stress test this morning bright and early. I will not get on a treadmill and I told the Dr. this. They were going to do the chemical stress test. They took more blood, I don't think I have any left in me. Then they had me lay flat on a table while they were taking pictures. After 45 minutes, I couldn't take it any longer and told the lady I had to get up my back was killing me plus my knees. The look I got would have killed me if looks could kill. I walked around for about 10 minutes, then finished with the itch(b)
My Mom was out in the waiting room, but she just had this done, with the treadmill about 5 months ago so she knew how long it would take. We waited about 1/2 hour or so, then got called into a conference room. I have to go back for the second half of the test next week. This is where they will inject me with some chemical that can cause me to have some kind of ill reaction, so I had to sign all kinds of papers. All the time I am doing this, I am thinking I can't be old enough to be signing this type of document. I can't be old enough to have these type of tests. Then I looked at my Mom. She is 86. I don't think of her being old, I think of her as being my Mom. I can see all us kids in the pool swimming in the back yard and my Mom yelling that supper is ready to get out of the water and dry off. For heavens sake she would say don't come in the house, go straight onto the porch. That is where we ate in the summer. We had a big screened in porch that went around the house. Beautiful.
This test stressed me out. Made me think. I am 57. My sister is 67, my brother is going to be 61 June 21. Vincent is 54 and the baby, Chuck is 44. Chuck's kids, Brianna is going to graduate high school in 2013 at 17(my baby) and Tyler is going to be 15 in August. I practically raised those kids from the ages of born to 2. My son is 35, I did raise him. Where do the years go? They didn't seem to go by that fast, but them bam she is a beautiful smart sophisticated intelligent woman. She is going to be a pediatrician and by God she will do it. I have never seen anyone so focused. Where does she get it, I don't know. Not from her Dad or Mom that is for dang sure.
Does anyone else find this to be true? The years just creep up on you. Something happens and them bam it is smacked in your face and you see it for what it is. Everyone has gotten older, things have changed? WAKE UP CALL
