Just an update that I have my Electrocardiogram (ECG) test on Monday and then see the Nephrologist (kidney doctor) on Tuesday.  Hopefully, they will get these issues resolved.  Sooo happy to finally get these tests done!  Nervous about both.  The heat has been causing a lot of problems with my heart lately.  I would like to know exactly what is going on with it and whether or not it is still enlarged.  Doctor seems to think my Mitral Valve Prolapse may have become worse and that is what the problem is.  Hope so.  We will see.  Wish me luck! - Kristin

Kristin,

I'm so glad to hear your news. I understand why you're nervous, but at least you'll get some answers. Until then, take care of yourself and stay out of the heat! Easy to say, huh. Let us know next week how your ECG goes and what your nephrologist has to say. I'm rooting for you.
