Week 88...weigh in...

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Happy Sunday to you all.
It's been three weeks now since the "great cat episode" !!!

I went to the Cardiologist on Thursday and he decided I should continue the higher dose of one of my meds for another 3 weeks as I had continued to use the GTN spray at least once or more every day, with the possibility of another Angiogram if there is no improvement.

When I went to make another appointment with the receptionist she said I couldn't have a Thursday again as the Doctor had made the last appointment himself and had slotted me in to days he only sees 'pacemaker patients'---how lovely is that?

I really appreciate all he has done for me and trust him implicitly (? Ken is that right :)). He is a very happy person and really takes an interest in you, so you feel you can be honest as he is not just trying to hurry you through.

So on Saturday I was feeling blue and decided I should get back to Zumba as 3 weeks off was sapping my strength and joy. So on went my slowest dvd and I battled to do 20 mins (I usually do 2-3 hours over the day), then I felt dizzy and drained and weak. Just as well Bec DD was home she saw me and said "you are blue ---get in here!!!" (masterful eh?). She did a quick BP and listened to my heart. "Rest!!!"

I was on the sofa all day after that and managed to rise to do the dinner. I can see the change in energy and now am more ready for another angiogram.

So the scale took pity on me and only increased by 0.1 kg so I'm up to 73 kgs from last weeks 72.9 kgs.

This week I'm going to try to walk a little each day and do some light Strength work if nothing else it will pick me up a bit.

Countdown to Bec's graduation is three close...

Thanks so much for caring about me and leaving lovely comments I really appreciate it.

Hope your week is amazing and fun and full of good things--be kind to each other.

    Rest up and don't push yourself too much. You're better off staying where you are than over doing it and going backwards.

Implicitly is indeed the right word :)

    That is scary! Sounds like you should really take it easy, as hard as that is. I hope you are feeling better soon and that heart gets straightened out! emoticon
