I went to my doctor's appointment, this afternoon. We did the blood tests and the EKG. The doctor will put in the request for the X-ray. The doctor also adjusted the dosage/frequency of one of my hypertension medications, because it was causing my heart rate to be too slow (50 beats per minute). It's the same medication she took me off of, once, and that caused my heart to race and my blood pressure to shoot sky high, and she put me back on it! I currently take it once a day, (at one time, I took it twice a day!). But now, doctor wants me to take it once every other day. And monitor my heart rate and blood pressure to make sure everything stays under control. I am to call her, on Thursday of next week, to keep her updated. She wants my heart rate to increase to 60 beats per minute, prior to surgery.
Doctor also checked for what I thought was a possible second lump, under my left arm (the cancerous lump is on the right side). But she couldn't feel it. So I don't know what it is that I am thinking is another lump! I guess I shall watch it and see. Most probably it's a lump of fat! I've plenty of those all over my body! :D
After the doctor's appointment, I went home. I put gas to the car, on the way, and then, went to the grocery store for milk, bread rolls, bananas, and cat food. There were frozen dinners on sale too, for $1.79 each; I bought 3 of them to have on hand.
I've spent a quiet evening. There were phone calls from family and friends and video chatting with daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- More progress on the pre-op medical tests
- Phone calls from family and friends
- Video chatting with daughter
- Price of gas being just under $3/gallon ($2.98 to be exact)
- Safe commutes
How was your day? What did you do?
