Cardiologist #2 - Done!

Today's cardiologist visit was a rather mystifying waste of time. I spent 45 minutes sitting in the waiting room (of course I had a good book with me so it wasn't a total waste) and 5 minutes talking to the doctor, who just repeated everything from yesterday's appointment, then told me he'd see me again in a year.

So not really sure what the point of it was, although I got to have lunch out again, did more flower shopping at Earl May's, bought my niece Alicia's shower gift (won't be able to go to the shower, same weekend as Ames agility) and had DQ on the way back to work. So not an entire waste of the morning.

Hopefully after the nuclear stress test next week (they assure me I will NOT glow in the dark, Rilda, but if I did, what fun for camping!), I will be done with hospitals, doctors, clinics, tests, etc. at least until July, when I have a two-month check up with the heart rhythm doc.

In the meantime, it's life as usual, which is WONDERFUL! And I can even have the tiniest bit of caffeine now. Maybe I'll live on the edge and have a Diet Coke this weekend.


  1. Great News!! Not sure I'd risk that Diet Coke. Luckily, Rilda has experience driving people to the ER from last year!

  2. If you are still "glowing" when it's time to go to Ames, I may even camp. I'm glad things are going so well for you. Good news!
