April 2, 2009

Update time! I went for my echo today – that was fun (or not).
That went OK, I guess. The room was warm, almost too warm. I put on one of those lovely hospital gowns and then I to lie down for what seemed like forever.  The guy doing the ultrasound explained it and then I had to lie in a couple different positions. It only took forty-five minutes, give or take a few. There was a bit of pressure on my chest, but it wasn’t bad at all. I worked the night shift yesterday, so I was tired. I think I even fell asleep for a few minutes!
When it was over, he let me know that Dr. Blerug, the heart specialist Dr. Grenwell referred me to, would get my results by our next appointment. He also took a lot of measurements on the screen, and I asked about those. The ultrasound person told me that after the Dr. interpreted them, she could tell me what they meant.
So I have to wait a couple more weeks, but they booked me in for the 17th. I will let you know by then what else is happening. I still feel fine, at least.
