Just thought I would update ppl on my heath situation, since I regularly receive Whispers in game from members enquiring about it.
FINALLY some Good News!
I was able to talk to my cardiologist today about the results of my echocardiogram. He called me a Star. His Superstar in fact. Results like mine make his week he said. *Tiny Fistpump*
When I was hospitalized at Christmas my heart was pumping at "barely 20% capacity" he said. In other words, only just keeping me alive. The results of the echo taken last month show that my heart has responded well to the drugs and exercise. It has come roaring back and tested at 60% (50% is Normal capacity, 100% is Maximum capacity (<-thats BAD BTW)).
So the good news is that as long as I keep taking my pills, I (probably) dont need to worry about dropping dead at any more family gatherings! =)
The bad news is I'm going to have to learn to live with the side effects of the pills (low blood pressure & dizzyness) pretty much indefinitely. =/
Now as long as the Republicans dont price my meds out of my reach...
Moral of the story: Get outside regularly and get some exercise. Trust me on this... Youre gonna miss your heart when its gone.
