As my Title above says -- it's been a while.
I have not been writing much these past few weeks - month even. I don't know why. I feel like I am at a crossroad and am waiting to either get hit by a car or to have the cars stop and I will cross the street safely to the other side.
My blood work - for one thing - is fine now. It was up (in the 3.5 range), then I lowered my dosage of warfarin and it lowered slightly (2.85) then again (2.39). And I hope it remains there and does not decrease any further - but stays where it is - more or less. I don't want to have to go on my higher dosage of warfarin.
I had a cystoscopy done since I last wrote. All looked good (said the doctor). I had a CT Scan of the kidneys, stomach and pelvic area last Wednesday and I go for results this coming Monday - I totally expect things will be fine. I had had a CT Scan of just the kidneys a couple of years earlier and the Scan took a lot longer - a lot more pics - they had to get the radiologist see it, then took more pics. This time, I was in and out within 10-15 minutes - nothing to alarm me - surprised it did not take as long as the first one - which tells me that all went well - that there were no abnormalities (the last CT scan of kidneys showed 99% blockage of main artery to left kidney) - so - hence why they took extra pics. So am not nervous - this CT Scan will be fine.
As for the results of my pulmonary test - well I had gotten a hard copy of the results (altho have not talked to my cardiologist about it) - but at least I have gotten the results.
As for the results of my Cardiac MRI - still no results. No news is good news they say eh? Yeah, but today makes it 6 weeks since I had the MRI - would kind of like to get the results. They must take a while. And it was summer and vacation time, right?
Went golfing a few times. One time, went in A-fib so we had to leave after 15 hole. Kind of scary - but it was very hot and humid so put it down to that. It is a bugger having A-fib - one feels like one's heart is gonna stop - not a good feeling. I knew enough to sit in front of the air conditioner - heart eventually went back to 'normal' after 3-4 hours.
Line dancing has started again on Fridays. And hubby and I have started taking ballroom dance lessons again. I thought I would enjoy the ballroom dance lessons - but I don't. Hubby is different from before. Or maybe I am? Not sure. Just does not feel the same at all. Oh well.
My writing has also suffered. Not sure why. I have lost interest in doing that. I just don't think I am a good writer - I feel like I am 'faking' it. Again I am not sure why. I sometimes just want to crawl in bed, stay there and sleep away......... But that is not possible..
Son has his job intervview this afternoon at 1 p.m. Maybe that will pick up my feelings. He was supposed to go to PEI for a chess tournament last Saturday. When he got up, he just said 'I don't want to go' and went back to bed. But I am just going to think positive thoughts........ if he is meant to have to have the job, he will - I will be pleased when he goes for the interview, no matter the outcome. He has to try..
Till next time......
