Hey everyone! Seems like the Dr. appointments never end! I've had several lately, but the one I was most nervous about was my cardiologist follow-up yesterday. Good news though - they did an echo and told me that I am still on the right path to recovery. My heart is returning to normal! YAY! yeah yeah yeah   Just wanted to share my good news. Thought it would be a nice change of pace from my normal whining and complaining. LOL! Now to the rheumy Friday.
Hope everyone is doing well!
Lots of Love!
