Clean Pipes

I took the nuclear stress test this morning. Aced that sucker! No blockage AT ALL. For someone my age, who has not always eaten healthy foods, that's awesome. Or at least I think so. Cardiologist feels that all my symptoms can be attributed to my thyroid. My TSH has been elevated, and we tweaked my meds to compensate, but obviously it hasn't been long enough to help much yet. But, knowing I have a healthy heart, makes me want to keep it that way. And for some reason, I think I'll be more determined to work toward that because it's healthy, than if it wasn't. I know it doesn't make sense, but maybe it's because I think it's easier to maintain than to try to repair?

I don't know how to lessen the stress at work, which exacerbates the problem. (Is that proper English LeLe?) I hope the help our Doctor is sending twice a week will be enough that I don't feel I have to work 12 hours a day to keep up. Computers are a wonderful thing, but they can complicate life sometimes.

I know some of you have been praying for me, and I appreciate it more than you know. Keep me in your prayers if you will.

That is awesome news! Stress is something that can be managed, while an unhealthy heart oftentimes cannot. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Yes, you used that word correctly. :)
