Couple of Things

I know there has not been any reviews in the last couple of days. I am working on them. Just been kind of busy here with various deals. So, more reviews are coming.

I mentioned last week I would be under Medicare as of Saturday. That has happened and I now have  an appointment with my cardiologist for next Wednesday morning bright and early.  This is an office visit only. I expect him to order the usual tests and those will have to be set up. No doubt an echo cardiogram and blood work for sure.

I am hoping to avoid the chemical stress test, but time will tell on that. Since I can't walk, a traditional stress test is out of the question. I have had the chemical version a couple of times and it is no fun. So, I hope to avoid that if at all possible.

Once this stuff is done and we know where I am cardiac wise, I hope to be able to do something to at least help with the pain on the back and leg deal. I am not looking forward to being poked and prodded, but it is nice to be able to get seen health wise again.

Same here, Kevin. This is one time I can say I know what you're about to go through. Been through them more than once.

The last time I went through this stuff, I said to the nurse that they really needed to use a tricorder and make the deal faster. Not only did she have no idea what I was talking about she had never seen Star Trek.

I'm glad to hear you're finally in a position to do this.
