Tuesday morning we woke up to several inches of very fluffy snow. I think it's beautiful....especially because I don't have to clear it.
I had a few errands to run in town so I took a few photos while I was out and about.
This is the scene I see from my table as I sit at my computer.
I'm glad the snow started late the previous day, because Monday I had an appointment with my cardiologist in Milwaukee.
Before I saw the doctor I had an ECHO and blood work. My blood work is always good. I had to wait until Wednesday to find out what my ECHO was. My ejection fraction was at 46%, that's up from 35% three months ago. Normal is 55-65, so I' pretty happy.
The doctor doubled one of my heart medications....I should have asked him why. Tuesday and Wednesday I was sooooo tired and didn't have a lick of ambition. I didn't even make it to book club, and I enjoy book club! I believe that drug increase is why I was so tired, many of the heart patients I talk to on facebook are so tired from their meds. Today I feel a lot better, not perfect, but not so tired. I think my body needed a chance to adjust to the new dose. I had a list of places to stop at today and I completed it.
I have osteopenia and the doctor wanted to write out a prescription....I don't like prescriptions if I can take care of the problem another way. I had my vitamin D level checked and then I was off the the health food/pharmacy to get what I needed. After I spoke to the consultant and many $$ lighter I left the store. I need to take care of myself. I think in another month or 2 I'll get my vitamin D level tested again to see if what I'm doing has done the job. Well, I'll have to keep it up. Staying healthy can be expensive.
Speaking of staying healthy.....tomorrow morning I am off the the Y again. I've been going twice a week....trying to make it a habit. It really helps to have another person to hold me accountable.
It's almost the weekend. Hope you have something fun planned.
