Had a 9am appointment with the cardiology practice this morning. I was dreading it because I don't like the cardiologist (who I have seen before) but I was seeing a nurse practitioner today, a guy. I was all prepared for a fight. And wadda ya know - he turned out to be the nicest guy. The medical assistant was a charming and lovely young woman. Good-o!
I didn't have a heart attack and I don't have heart disease but I do have thickening in one chamber of my heart. I would go into more detail but do you really care or need to know? Yeah, I didn't think so.
I have always told doctors that I don't fit into the normal box, in how I react to medication or even how my body reacts to just about anything. Whatever diagnosis and remedy they come up with it it won't fit what is going on with me. Of course they are doctors and they know everything and poo, poo, poo - until. Yeah, they all wind up saying "You are a little odd" A little? - LOL
I wish I could tell you about all the peculiarities of my current physical condition or the fun and games in the hospital where I had doctors from three different specialties scratching their heads trying to figure out what the hell was going on. It was a hoot actually. Just trust me when I say it wasn't anything they had ever seen before, well not all at the same time (How can a person have trouble breathing when their oxygen levels are 100%?)
Treatment for one of my problems contradicts treatment for another of my problems and testing for another condition can't really be done until the other two problems are cleared so it's a waiting game, tho at the moment, unless I have another bout of internal bleeding, I am pretty much in good shape.
On the weather front - the building engineer started the process to switch from a/c to heat and found there was a problem with a pipe, so they have to fix the pipe problem before they can turn on the heat - maybe Thursday. Right now I have icicles hanging from my nose...
