Stress Echocardiogram Today
Thursday, September 05, 2013
I was fine with this until I googled it and did some research last night. Then I didn't sleep a wink!
I totally fit the profile for heart disease -- I have beautifully low blood pressure and resting heart rate, until I exercise vigorously -- then the numbers go berserk!
So I stayed up all night, tossing and turning -- what if I have heart disease? What if we have to cancel our Inca Hiking trip which leaves in less than two weeks? Judging from how hard the 3 miles up Pikes Peak was last month -- this trip is going to be AS hard if not harder. The hiking part is 25 miles spread over 4 days, all at elevations from 9,000-14,000 feet. Here's what we'll be hiking:
The second day is that BIIIIGGGGGG incline up to the highest point on the trail, 14,000 feet. I'm kind of in Panic Mode right now!
I'll find out generally if I'm healthy or not during/after the test, although the official report won't be available for a few days.
Wish me luck!!!!
