Crazy Cardio

Yesterday was my semi-annual visit to the cardiologist.  I was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure in 2000.  I try not to think about it other than these fun visits twice a year and taking a handful of pills every morning.  Otherwise I'm pretty much maintaining :)

My visit started with a "little debate" with the business office over my bill.  Someone should tell these people that the patients have HEART problems!!!  I know they are only doing their job but don't ask me for money that I don't owe!  At one point, I thought they were not going to let me see the doctor but after they figured it out, they put me through. 

By this time, I was late for my appointment.  My nurse, Gilbert, is awesome.  I have been going there for 10 years now so we have a pretty good nurse/patient relationship.  He called me back and asked what the hold up was so there I go, on my rant.  Poor guy!

Finally, I saw the doctor...

Bloodwork good...check

EKG good...check

Heart still beating...check

I'm all good for the next 6 months!  I probably could've saved them all a lot of trouble and told them that when I got there but it's always nice to have confirmation.  If my heart can withstand the business office, it can take anything.  Maybe that's their plan?!


  1. YAY for the good check up...BOO for the ogres behind the counter! :)

  2. Nice job provoking giggles from the girl who just got out of the hospital...LOL. Your personality really shines in this post (well, haven't known you long, but that's how you strike me - upbeat, great sense of humor, flexibility...)
    Note to Heather's readers: It's my fault her post didn't go as scheduled, but she's on for Saturday 2/11! So please check her out then, and leave her lost of nice comments, 'k?

  3. OOPS, got carried away there...I forgot my signature.

  4. Love your sense of humor in the situation! "If my heart can withstand the business office, it can take anything. Maybe that's their plan?!" Glad your check up was fine.
