Hi again! Back to stay, I hope!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

If my new laptop continues to cooperate I hope to be able to stay online with SPARK. I really missed coming here each day and all my dear friends. emoticon emoticon I also made an unexpected visit to the hospital because an EKG saw a "heart flutter" and my doctor gave me a choice: " Go to the hospital or go home and fall on the floor!!" Some choice, right? I chose the hospital! emoticon
Today I will make a return trip to my new cardiologist and find out the next move. I'll also find out if this huge appetite I've had for the past week is really hunger or just nerves. I suspect the latter, as my appetite diminishes the closer I get to today's appointment and putting it all behind me. Thank God I don't have junk food in my house anymore.The worst I was able to do was saltines with PB or honey, and a few extra yogurts! I think I held my own in the end. I'm so glad I've been eating healthy al along because it paid off when my cholesterol count was way low, and my heart was healthy except for the irregular heartbeat. I have a feeling that abstaining from high octane caffeinated coffee may go a long way towards my cure! I'll make that suggestion to the new doc today! Here's to healthy emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    HI Patty !!! GR8 that you DO NOT have junk food to eat over on !! What a SUCCESS That IS !! WOOHOOOO !! CONGRATS !!!

    With the heart,,,,, hope all is well. I think my Dad is one of the Most luckiest Man ALIVE !! He's had EIGHT HEART ATTACKS !! And yet, he's OK living at home, alone now,,,for Mum passed over a yr ago. He is what I call "My Timex Daddy" for he "Takes a licking, and KEEPS ON TICKING" !!

    So hopefully you will be Fine. GLAD Ur Dr put ya in the hosp. Last yr I had a mini stroke,,,it was soooo SCARY !! I've lost part of the use of my left arm,,, and my leg/foot drags when I am tired,,,, and my speech was all stuttering. THANKS To 3 or 4 months of PT and speech therapy,,, I got back to where I am today as mentioned above AND My speech is BACK to NORMAL !! THANKFULLY !!! Though the grands thought it was SOOO FUNNY !! They KEPT UP my spirit as I went thru it !!

    LOL I DID Play a MEAN JOKE to Travie,,,, he's a late teen,,,, when he came into the hosp room he was all "HI Grandma !" I turned towards him with a blank stare "I , I , I ammmmmm s s so sorry, I , I , I , I do do do not not not knowwww U U." His face DROPPED !!! He said "Yes, you do ! I am Travie !!" "Nah ah,, no no ,,,I m am s ss sss sorry, I , I dooo dooo not kn know U." well he started to CRY !! For we've both have been sick (I was born chronically ill) all his life,, and he was called terminal,,, til he was FINALLY dianogised CORRECTLY last winter in Denver,, we had lived in ME.,,,,, so well he was CRUSHED !!!

    When he started to cry,,,,, I smiled a LOPSIDED SMILE "Hon,,, hon,,,, hun,, I, I , I DO DO DO OF OF COU COURSE Re reme rember U U U". LOL everyone and the room was FULL started to laugh and said "she'll be FINE !! She's HERSELF " !!! Travie of course FORGAVE ME IN TIME !! But, he LOVED the stuttering so much,, LOL THE FOOL asked me to TEACH HIM how to do it ! HAHAHAHA FUNNY KID !! We recorded it on video for later.

    You have been missed Patty. It's good to have you back tho. I can sure identify with the unexpected visit to the hospital. It happened to me in Feb. I had Pneumonia, then they told me I had had a heart attack. Wishing you better health soon and so glad your laptop is working.

    I have lifted a prayer on your behalf - asking God's perfect will concerning the heart condition

    God bless! .

    Heart flutters are so common, but it doesn't make the issue any less bothersome for us as we work our way through it all. My Mom at 91 was just diagnosed with it (atrial fib). I'm so surprised she hasn't been diagnosed before. Anyway, good luck to you Patty. I noticed you hadn't been around much lately and computer issues are a good (but bad) reason! Hugs, Jeannie
