Deep breathing, neck and knee exercises this afternoon...

Monday, January 10, 2011

Taking it easy while waiting for results of MRI/MRA etc, blood test and results of echocardiogram, also.

I read the echocardiogram report and since I am not a doctor I cannot tell if the abnormalities are anything that need further testing or referral to a cadiologist.

I have spent way too much time researching various possible disorders I might have. I did this when I had my first biopsy of growths (tumors or cysts) of the pancreas. Since the biopsy turned out to be negative for cancer I did settle down about that. The endocrinologist told me I was "lucky these growths were found at a small size as an incidental finding on a gall bladder ultrasound." The biopsy and first scan of the pancreas were done almost 3 years ago and I have that to look forward to on annual basis, probably in February this year.

The nurse consultant from my insurance company told me to do deep breathing and quit researching on the internet (which I had already decided to do before she told me).

Another way to put it is: Let go and let God. No sense making my blood pressure go up further.... emoticon emoticon

    I think is is good to be informed. However, when you start going to a doctor for help, you are trusting in their expertise. Prayers for you.

    Too much information can definitely be a bad thing when it comes to medical issues.

    I stopped looking medical things up on line.
It always ended up worrying me more and usually unnecessarily.
I'll pray that things go well for you.

    Too much information can really ruin one's day. Relax and let the chips fall where they may. It has always worked for me. emoticon

Sleep...got 8 hours last night....

Sunday, January 09, 2011

Plan to go to gym this afternoon. Hope everyone has a good Sunday.

I wrote another paragraph but hit that magic combination of keys that erase forever whatever I just wrote.

It probably wasn't worth reading anyhow.

Enjoy your Sunday!!! emoticon

Another 11-hour sleep....

Saturday, January 08, 2011

I got an awful lot done yesterday and feel a little dragged out. Worked 8 hours, went to hospital for blood draw, then to physical therapy for my neck, picked up Rxs at Target and picked up a quick "dinner" and then went for MRI, MRA and some other MR of the COW (circle of Willis), the last to rule out a stroke.....I am hopeful everything is normal and if it is the question of why I am having a 2-week headache and blurry vision is still to be explained. It seems the more I work the more my neck hurts as the blurry vision is causing my posture to be really bad as I strain to see.

I apologize for sounding like a broken record on my blog here but this is what is on my mind.

I finally am going to the gym this morning and will do some gentle swimming and whirlpool exercises. After sleeping 11 hours my lower back is sore.....

Hope everybody enjoys their weekend....I certainly am.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I did swim today and that felt so nice....am taking it easy this afternoon and plan to do my neck exercises and go on the recumbent bike for 20 to 30 minutes later today.

    I really like how you hang in there, and still manage to do your exercise. You are a winner. emoticon

    Please take care. It is OK to cut back on exercise a little until some medical things are resolved.

Blood test drawn and MRI, MRA etc done..results expected by Tuesday....

Friday, January 07, 2011

Got rescheduled for the brain scans at the clinic where I saw the neurologist. It lasted about an hour and wasn't so bad afterall.

I hope to get the results on about Tuesday. Hope the doctor calls to discuss the results as soon as possible.

I always hate to wait for test results....just hoping for the best...but also want to know why I am having this headache for almost 2 weeks and blurry vision that seems worst in the morning and gradually improves in the afternoon and evening..... emoticon

    I will keep you in my prayers. I know they need to do all those tests, but it certainly is a lot to worry about. When I get stressed, I go to my happy place (the barn). I hope you have a happy place you can go to. emoticon

TGIF...toughed it out at work in spite of blurry vision and headache...

Friday, January 07, 2011

This morning only have a dull headache. Tried Tylenol for the headache yesterday and it did not help a bit. Will be starting physical therapy for the neck after work today.

Have not been to the gym all week but plan to go this evening. Will be careful with my neck so as to not strain it. (No front crawl swimming for now.)

Will enjoy the whirlpool today, absolutely!!!
