And the fun continues

I have never had a stress test.. Well, not a "real" one.. Life is my stress test. If I can handle it without losing my mind, then it's all good..

BUT, tomorrow, I'll be at the Medical Arts building having a Stress Test. I've head you are only in a hospital gown and have to run on a treadmill. Really? Sorry folks, I DON"T run! This momma, is well, well-endowed by the grace of 3 children (went from a 34c to a 40E in 8 years). No way I run when I have on 2 sports bras at the gym, you think I am going to do this bare chested?

Good Luck to those folks trying to get me to do that.. Should I burst their bubble when I walk in the room or let them figure it out on their own?

In all seriousness, I know it must be done.

The nurse called from my PCP's office to let me know I'll going on Cholesterol meds today.
 This sums it up for ya...

It's for 6 weeks (minimum with another blood draw after the 6 weeks) and I forgot the name of the med, but I'll be picking it up at Target later..
My Cholesterol # overall is reasonable (under 200) but my LDL is higher than my PCP would like for someone with "my family history"

Just another reason I am heading back to the gym. I will NOT be on meds the rest of my life. I know my #'s increased as my waistline did. I plan on taking care of that.

So for the time being, I'll make due with what I have be given as an opportunity to make my life better.
That's what this is, an opportunity.. I can't look at it with a doom and gloom outlook, it's depressing to do.
If I do not take this opportunity, I may not get another one and my babies could be without a Mommy.

I want to say Thank you for those who have read, responded, prayed and sent thoughts my way.
It's encouraging and wonderful to know and see kind wonderful people!

  1. Praying for you NOW!! As Oprah once said BEFORE God SHOUTS at you (with like, a heart attack), he whispers at you, speaks a little louder and so on. Good for you for hearing it before He had to shout!!
