New Pill

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

I found out the left side of my heart is "severely stressed". I had an echo cardio gram and the results show that I need to take this new med.. Coversyl.. to widen the blood vessels and let the blood flow more easily. The doctor said my heart is not clogged with cholesterol.. so I'm not sure what's up. He says I can keep on exercising.. walking my dog.. riding my bike.. I know that the poundage seriously has to come off now.. It's not a game..
Wish me luck!
ok.. I know it's not luck that will take off the pounds.. I will try my best to keep from having a stroke, or heart attack.. The doctor said that the left side of my heart could stop getting oxygen and could die.. Really not good.
There's nothing like really bad news to make me sit up and take notice of what the Doctor said.
I will do my best to lose this weight.
My life seriously depends on it.

    Wow, that is definitely some scary news to get from your doctor! No doubt this will inspire you to take the best possible care of yourself. Being human, we tend to take our bodies for granted until one day we are hit with the realization that they may not be in the best working order... or worse! I do wish you all the best. Keep us posted on any new development and take care of you! You deserve it!

    Hello there, Zie. I saw your blog title scroll by on the SP Class of May 6-12, 2012, and had to read about a "New Pill." Well if that doesn't give you some motivation, I don't know what could! Just know, your team of Sparkers is definitely here to provide moral support on your journey.

    I am glad that you got news even though it is not what you wanted to here. Do what your DR tells you and take care. I am glad that you can do your fitness. I know you will get there.
