My PT Appointment went well. I'm very happy with it. They took my measurements, had me do exercises for the balanced tests. I got 19 Points out of 56 Points. I got to try out a Motorized Wheelchair too. She said did you ever try one out before. I was in one going down a hall once. She said I done Awesome!!! I'm very quick to catch on to things like that. I go back next week to meet with the PT and Vendor. Then it goes to the Insurance Company to get the approval for it.
And now for My Gastroenterologist Appointment. I enjoyed the ride out there. It was the driver second day. I guess he wanted to go sightseeing in SE Portland. We went through mountains and areas that I have never seen before. So it was very nice for a changed.
Got to the Doctor office and all they wanted to know was my contact numbers which they already had. Okay. Was taken back to a room and they took my weight and Blood Pressure which was good 116/70. They presented me with a medication lost that was 4 year old. And ask if I was still on them. I said no and gave her my current list as of last Friday. Then the doctor came in and asked me how I was. I told him I was in the hospital again and he ask why. Told him with chest pain and they said was diagnosed with LVOL. They had no records on me at all. He didn't even know how to access them on the computer. Finally was able to find some tests results. Was asking the name of my Doctor, where she was, weather she was with Providence or not. Etc. He asked the same questions about my Cardiogist (heart doctor) who is in the same building on the second floor. He didn't know him. He did not exaimmed me at all, check my heart nothing. Told him I was having a lot of pain in the adommed (stomach) and very sore. Said all of it was caused by me smoking for 55 years. I am going to have to quit and stop for good. I'm on the ECigarerttes part time now. They refused to do anything that reqires sedation be caused of the heart. The artery that goes to the intestines is pretty bad too. It can close on me too. Then what? I'm very concerned about that too. The doctor is going to talk to the radioigist team and see what they might suggest. I asked him what they do and what could be done. Maybe stents he didn't know. They want to blamed any medical problem I have ever had on the cigarettes. I have smoked since I was 17. and I'm 71 years old now. I feel like I have been handed a death sentence. I keep hoping and praying that their are other things that they could do and try. I am letting God see me through this. He is my Savior and protector. He will get me through this I believe. Never Quit or Give Up Hope. Please continue to pray for me I need all the prayers I can get. Thank You for all your support and prayers. All of this had to come out. I should have started to blog when I had the first heart attack. Sorry that I didn't now. We all need to continue on our weight loss journeys to a healthy life style. This is the WTG!!! Spark ON!!!
They want to see me in 8 weeks. Why? For a repeat performance. It was a total disconnect for him about me before he even came into the room. I had to wait for an hour for the cab. It was a van with a ramp and he refused to put the ramp out for me saying it was for wheelchairs. So had to stepped up into it. Then he decided to take me on a wild ride on freeways by downtown and a very long way home. This is what they do to had to the fare. No I wasn't paying for it. When we got here he put my walker so close to the van I all but done a somersault over the walker bar it felt like. All I wanted was to get home and go to bed. I was totally drained mentally and emotionally from all of it. Praised God I did get 3 hours of sleep. Thank You God. I give God the Glory for Everything. God Blessings to Everyone Always and May He be with You Always Too. Have a Wonderful Week.
