R&R (Rest & Relaxation)... Day 6

Day off of work today...
Woke up early to return a call to my cardiologist regarding a refill on one of my prescriptions. I'm at a loss though because my oncologist ordered an echocardiogram to see if my heart healed from the Chemo drugs I took years ago. If it did, he wants to take me off my heart pills. Yet, my cardiologist said I had to schedule a yearly follow-up in order for her to issue the refill for the prescription pills. Having no choice, I did.
But, is the follow-up with the cardiologist really necessary? My heart condition is a common, treatable side-effect from chemo as opposed to something like low / high blood pressure, etc. My oncologist believes it's pointless for me to be on the heart pills if my heart is healed.
After talking with the cardiologist, I did 30 minutes of cardio before heading off to meet up with a friend. (more on visit w/ friend in later blog)
