The results are in…I'll live a while longer. My heart is only a little larger than last year(not to worry),the fluid around it is actually less than last year and all arteries are clear. Thanks for all the prayers and support. I LOVE Y'All!!

I'mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Back. Dr had Er so I'll get my results on Wednesday. They gave me a shot for the rolling migraines I've had all weekend caused by the test and sent me home. I always get the headaches after the test. They told me today if they knew that they can give the shot when they give the meds for the test. Who knew??

Don't you just love those stress tests? They need to keep us hooked up for just a typical day of dealing with stuff. LOL
I hope you are feeling better soon...we need you.

Got home about an hour ago. It was a long tiring day. GOOD NEWS…I'll live!
Little background on the heart thing:
55 years ago I was born with a faulty heart valve. When I was 16 I had my first heart attack. The valve sticks on open and the blood races through too fast causing it to stop. I had another when I was 23 and they said I had an enlarged heart. . Now every once in awhile I have what they call "Cardiac Episodes". Like a heart attack but not as bad. Have the pain but don't pass out or die for a minute. Last year they told me my heart was enlarged with some extra fluid around it. Anyway right now I'm ok, just really tired.. I had my stress test today and will get the results Monday.
Thank You all for the prayers and Good wishes.
