Woo Hoo


Friday, April 06, 2012

Yesterday was an interesting day. Went to sign up for cardiac rehab. Got all the paperwork done and with a possible start up date this next Monday. Then I hopped skipped and jumped over to see the cardiologist for a follow up only to be told that I have to have another esophageal electrocardiogram to make sure the valve is working properly. Probably should have had this done six years ago when they put the first one in and maybe I would not be going through this now. Ohh well!!! LOL If you believed that I hopped skipped or jumped any where today you almost as delusional as I am. I guess I am just kind of tired of not being allowed to do anything. I did not tell you that I got chewed out because I was not using the oxygen all the time or the cpap, so I am back on them. Any way I have the cardiogram on the ninth and see the cardiologist again on the seventeenth Looks as though I will be waiting until after that to get the ok for rehab.
The two oldest grandsons are coming over tomorrow and they are going to help me get my tomato plants and broccoli planted. Don't know if we will get much else done or not, but they are willing to help and they are good help. I have taught them well.
Jeff's mom and dad are coming to spend the day on Monday. They have not seen Jeff since before he was diagnosed with the cancer. They are going to be in for a shock when they do see him. It bothers me but there is nothing I can do about it except to lift them up before the Lord for strength.
In my last blog I said I was really trying to listen to my body. Well my body is telling me to turn off the cpap and get something to drink. It dries me out so much that at time I have a hard time swallowing. I may have to do some phone calling about it tomorrow.
I won a work out DVD just a little while ago. I should receive it in three to four weeks so I am believing that by the time it gets here I will be able to use it . Today I got the 28 day boot camp DVD and one of Lesllie's walking ones. I cannot use either one of them right now, but the day that I can is just around the corner. It may take me a little while to reach the corner and get around it but I know that I will.
It is time for me to put my mask back on and try to see if I can get some sleep. I will get a drink first and if I continue drying out I will turn everything off for the night.
God bless
Barb

    Lifting you up in my prayers. Does you CPAP have the aqua adapter with it? It helped me with the dryness, but I didn't like the mist much...so ended up not using it much. Hope all your cardio visits go well and that you are in cardio rehab soon.
