Thanks Hippi . . . I somehow missed this one.

(((((((((((( Mary Ann )))))))))) WOW! That was sudden! (or not, if your doc has actually been watching it for so long). We never know what tomorrow (or this afternoon) will bring! I hope you'll keep us posted on the updates and dr. visits.

Congratulations on the weight loss!!! WOWZA!! I hope to join you at 75 lbs some day. I've lost 50, but I've done it v-e-r-y slowly and have changed many eating habits, one at a time.

Thanks, Hippi and Rosie.  I will keep you posted.  I'm taking it easy this weekend.  Just resting, enjoying my new home.  The grandkids are coming over this evening so that will help take my mind off things.

Take care all.

well at least they are on to it now. I always hope and pray when ever I have a test that it will show what it needs to show so they can treat me. you know when something is not right, and when the tests don't show anything I get more worried not less.

my best to you.

I wanted to let you know. I had a pacemaker put in at age 34. (two years ago) It's really not a major surgery. I was only given light sedation, not put to sleep. I went home the next day. My pulse had gotten down, at it's lowest point, to 16. My arm had to be immobilized for 2 weeks to make sure nothing moved until it had time to heal. I felt alot better after the pacer brought my rate up. I was totally exhausted before. Good luck and keep us posted. Judy
