Still here

I survived the cardiac testing yesterday with just a residual upset stomach from eating such a high-fat lunch (part of the regimen) and some red, itchy skin on the chest from my allergy of those sticky doodads. What I had was the Nuclear Stress Test where they inject something radioactive that attaches to the heart so they can look at it. Oh well, whatever it takes.

They said "no news is good news" until my follow-up appointment in two weeks, so I'm hoping for no news.

Do you glow in the dark?

Seriously, glad to hear it was a tolerable ordeal and there's nothing wrong that's readily apparent so far.

I'm pretty sure I do glow in the dark now. Does anyone need a night-light?

Can you be a laser beam?

Hoping for no news!

Congrats. I hope you passed your test.

These waiting periods are awful. But I just heard a story the other day about a 39 y.o. mother of three who died of undiagnosed congestive heart failure. As you say, whatever it takes.

Do the cats look at you funny with the glow thing going on? I imagine they suspect something.
