hi one and all,
now i'm confused - who had the endoscopy, barb or heidi? i'm thinking barb, but whoever, i'm SO GLAD to hear you've had it and remember zero. isn't that wonderful? i'm like you, i'm due a colonscopy now, but not feeling anything like that might be a problem so i'm in no rush. other things to take care of first, like dental probs.
i'm still at mayo in phoenix, but i hope to go home to texas on friday or saturday. but i don't have my big consult with the last guy 'til thursday quite late, so we'll see what he says. i can't tell all of you enough just how outstanding it is to be here. i love my home, but wish i could get medical like this nearby. they are always on time, they are coordinated, they coordinate all your health care concerns (ALL), the technicians have been kind and compassionate and patient beyond belief, the doc's thoughtful and thorough and on time always, scheduling for all done by a central place, with you and your calendar in hand. i can't say enough good things about this place. i have only consulted with the cardio guy who pretty much agreed with my own doc, even though i didn't prompt him. he did suggest a change or two in meds and i'll discuss that with my own guy when i get home. but he feels like another heart cath right now would not be a good thing, might just encourage more scar tissue forming, so unless i feel much worse he thinks not. he said once you get past 6-8 months with heart procedures that's an excellent sign - so teri, i know you're coming up on 10 months for your bypass, right? looks like a great sign -
horrible gastro tests today, couldn't breathe, they called in the heart guys and they still don't know, maybe i just hyperventilated or somerthing, but my BP was 200+/something and they all were pretty worried, me too! i also had a big fat barium swallow to tack on to the loveliness of the day and have been having "problems" ever since, if you know what i mean. i won't go into detail!
