An Update...

I was hoping to have a real update for you (and me!) today, but I haven't heard back from the cardiology office yet, so not much has happened here.  I do feel better today... but I do take a pain pill when the pain gets too out of control (which is usually once a day), so it's hard to tell if there's really any change.  Today was a little surreal in that I felt the same as I've felt for quite a while, but the mere idea that it could be heart related, rather than hormonal made things quite a bit more stressful.  I'm trying for the most part not to think about it (that's probably the real reason for the belated update!  Sorry!).  I do have a feeling that it's more likely to be a thyroid thing than a heart thing (at least that's what I'm hoping!).  I just wish I'd asked more questions when the doctor was so worried about the EKG results...  I was so surprised that they weren't good, that I didn't really say anything.

I will be calling the cardiology office tomorrow (despite the "don't call us we'll call you) and if I don't get a hold of them I'll start looking at the doctor's offices that are further away.  I'll post an update when I have an appointment!  Hopefully that will be soon!


  1. Have they checked your gallbladder? I have been having the same type of pain for awhile's horrible! I finally told my doctor (I have a lot of distrust of doctors so I put it off for way too long) and it turns out I have gallstones. The pain often makes me think I'm having a heart attack.

  2. I never get calls back, not for good news, nor for bad news. If I did not call and call again for the reports I would die without knowing what was in the tests-- the competence and work ethic of the staffs in doctors offices in my area ranges from excellent to so low I wonder how the doctors can STAND to be paying such lazy people!

  3. Praying for you Cam! I would think that if it were serious, they Dr would call back ASAP or your Dr would have gotten you an appt ASAP. When my youngest had a potentially life threatening heart issue, our pediatrician call the cardiologist and made the appt for me.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
