I went to the cardiologist today for my quarterly exam. At the exam, we reviewed the results of my recent stress test. I was really shocked when he said, “Everything looks good.”
Good? Normal? Me?
With all the cardiac complications these past few years, along with the insertion of my second pacemaker/defibrillator already, I was not expecting that.
Because of the medications and the constant electronic pacing of my heart, my ejection fraction rose from an abysmal 30% to a normal 64%. I cannot begin to tell you how elated that made me feel.
Am I well? No. Will I have to keep watching myself? Yes. However, it just shows that what we have been doing is working.
Now, on to the gratuitous announcement: Come see our show! Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. takes place tomorrow through Sunday (November 16-19) 7:00 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and 2:00 p.m. Sunday. Doors open half-hour before showtime. Entrance is through the school’s gymnasium doors. We hope to see you there!
