SPRING TIME is CREEPING UPON US.
See my WILD PLUM trees a BLOOMING?
NOW FOR YOUR INPUT!
I have not been feeling SO good.
For a long time now………..since last MAY!
I am tired ALL THE TIME.
I found out last MAY my HEART VALVE is leaking once AGAIN!
I had that repaired 6 years ago.
But NOT enough to under go the HEART SURGERY AGAIN!
I suppose cause that wasNOT something I want to experience AGAIN!
MY problems now are EPISODES as I call them where I lose my SIGHT and FEEL like I will PASS OUT!
NOT FUN EITHER.
These have been going on now since before NOVEMBER of last year.
In NOVEMBER I started to write the EPISODES DOWN in a cute little polka dot notebook.
The EPISODES last between a minute to TWO and I have NEVER fainted.
A couple of weeks ago I had an EPISODE in my BANK.
It lasted 20 minutes.
911 was called.
From this I have seen a NEUROLOGIST.
Who thinks it is CARDIO.
I have spoken to a family friend who is a professor of NEUROLOGY
Who also thinks it is CARDIO.
I have spoken to a SURGEON who is a relative
Who thinks it is CARDIO.
Now, I have seen my MD TWICE ABOUT THIS before the 911 call.
I also have been enduring headaches EACH AND EVERY DAY for over a MONTH.
I have low BLOOD PRESSURE in general.
This last month it has BEEN HIGH!
DO WE SEE ANY RED FLAGS HERE?
SO, lets review.
THESE TESTS have been done an MRI and a CAT SCAN; will have an EEG tomorrow!
Seen a CARDIOLOGIST from HELL.
Mine was not available.
But she does own a chicken with a hand knitted sweater!The things I can pull out of people!
I had HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE in her office.Especially after the ASSISTANT told me my CARDIOLOGIST has moved on.
I adored my DOCTOR as he has been with me from the GET GO and had dirty white sneakers on during my first procedure with him.
ABOUT 15 years ago.
I believe that was an ANGIOGRAM.
I remember telling him as I was lying on THE TABLE your shoes are dirty!
He also wanted to do the PADDLES on me as the A-FIB had come back after the surgery and I said NOT TOMORROW It is my OLDEST SON’s BIRTHDAY and I have to cook!He allowed me to leave and come back a day later for the PADDLE SHOCK in the hospital.
YOU KNOW THOSE PADDLES THAT WE SEE ON TV where they bring YOU BACK TO LIFE!!!!!!?
BEEN THERE DONE THAT to correct an IRREGULAR HEART BEAT.
Back to my little book.
NO one has asked to see my little book of EPISODES from MD to SPECIALIST.
I have kept a log since NOVEMBER 8,th 2016 all episodes and feelings that were not NORMAL.
THE EPISODES happen on AVERAGE ….. every 10 days.
There have been about SEVEN really terrifying EPISODES.
What was I doing?
2.Sitting at my computer.
3.Having lunch in the city.
4.Talking to a gentleman at a party.(SO STANDING UP )
5.Sitting on the toilet pushing for number TWO.
6.Pruning my roses.
7.Sitting at my bank making a deposit.
FIVE of these I was sitting down.NOT Out of breath just SITTING!
WHAT IS MY PROBLEM?
TRUMP made it to the WHITE HOUSE without paying taxes for years.
WE PUT PEOPLE ON THE MOON.
WE HAVE CARS THAT WILL DRIVE FOR US SOON.
BUT NOBODY can FIGURE out or has the DESIRE to figure out what is happening with little old me!
I have heard from THE PROFESSIONALS
“I HOPE YOU MAKE YOUR TRIP IN MAY”
“THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO FOR YOU”
YOU MIGHT SAY I AM A BIT FRUSTRATED.
ANGRY could be another ADJECTIVE.
The CARDIOLOGIST has put me on BLOOD PRESSURE medicine HER WORDS not mine
“TO CALM ME!”
MAYBE I am suffering from HIGH Blood PRESSURE and this is the RESULT?
They have also started me on MIGRAINE Meds……
for the headaches
which I took a pill yesterday and it did NOTHING.
Mind YOU I can function with the headaches.
Headache starts at the back of the neck then works it’s way to my temples.
I know YOU are a SMART GROUP of PEOPLE.
SO, Iam asking for YOUR INPUT.
I need to know WHERE TO GO NEXT.
AS you all know I have a TRIP LOOMING in MAY ;I must be IN TIP TOP SHAPE!
I have PEOPLE TO MEET and places to WALK.
NO TIME for FAINTING SPELLS
MY GOD I NEED TO SEE THE LAND OF THE QUEEN!
JUST UP from a NAP the both of us.
I sleep between 8 to 10 hours a night and still need to NAP!
If his TUFFET was big enough for the TWO of US I would be hugging him as we nap………..
He loves to be touched and to have his Tummy Rubbed.
He brings JOY.
MOUNDS of JOY to MY LIFE!
DO YOU HAVE JOY?
I have decided THAT is my NEW WORD for 2017.
THAT use to be my message on my cell phone!
Time to bring it BACK!
PS.I decided to ask my VET just to see if she had any advise.
DO you know she has the same thing happening to HER!
Except she FAINTS.
She has even been to the MAYO CLINIC in SCOTTSDALE.
THIS IS A MYSTERY which needs to be SOLVED.
ANY input I would GREATLY APPRECIATE.
The medical profession is FAILING ME at the moment and I just had ANOTHER EPISODE before POSTING this BLOG POST!
TOO YOUNG FOR THIS
NEVER MIND MY DRIVING IS LIMITED as I have NO WARNING to when another EPISODE will APPEAR!
THESE PEARLS came in the MAILBOX.
THEY ARE CALLED “CONTESSA PEARLS”!!!
A DESIGNING JEWELRY LADY
LIVES LIFE LARGE
THESE HAVE BROUGHT SO MUCH JOY TO ME!
IF you feel YOU need a pair

THEN COME BACK HERE AND LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS!
I would be EVER SO GRATEFUL.
