Thanks for everyone's love and support

Thursday, May 23, 2013

It seems like I've been on the downward drop in the roller coaster this week. I know that once I get over this funk I've seen to gotten myself in, I will be ok.

I feel really safe to say that all my problems are not from my heart. The EKG that was running right after they pumped all that radioactive material into my IV looked really good...better than the troubling one I had done last month. They told me that our estimated cost after the insurance paid would be almost $1,000 not counting the expense for the cardiologist to interpret the results. It took them 5 tries to get the IV in me...5 times. I look like a bruised and pincushion. One of the attempts is still puffed up today. It took 3 of them to find a vein. I always forewarn everyone but they never listen to me. They told me yesterday that I have skinny veins...it's the only thing that's skinny on me...lol

I can't get in to see my family doctor so I just made an appt to see a gastro. They initially told me that I wouldn't be able to get in for a month until I told the receptionist why I needed to be seen. Then they magically said that they could get me in on June 3rd due to a "cancellation." My husband got in the next day after he saw his family practice doctor...the same doctor too.

Hubby got officially notified today of the government furlow and how it will effect him. I'm sure that he'll tell me more once he gets home tonight.

Again, I want to thank everyone for being so supportive of me. I really do love SP and everyone coming to my aide!!!

    Oh how I do know about those "magical" cancellations! Actually, those time slots are reserved for emergencies and apparently you qualified... Here's hoping to good results and an ease of mind!
