Good afternoon. Yup, I'm still here in the hospital. Yesterday afternoon I had the first half of the stress test. They came for me at 7:30 this morning to go have the other half of the test. That took about three hours from start to finish.
I'm still waiting for the outcome from the heart stress test, but I already got results from the ultrasound on my kidneys, bladder and belly. It seems I have an Aneurysm in the Aorta mid section measuring about 3.5. If it gets to 5 then surgery would be needed to put in a stent (I think that's what he said). So far though, we're just monitoring it. Thanks for little blessings.
There is some kidney failure (only moderate) so this will be monitored too for now. My blood pressure is still wicked high, so now they are working on bringing that down. There will be no going home today. The heart doctor should be in later to discuss the results from the stress test.
So that's my update so far. Here's a new photo to show off all my pretty wires. (from heart monitor)
Deanne stopped by my house and took this photo of my tomato. One beautiful little green tomato!
I want to thank everyone for the well wishes. It means a lot knowing you care. Theresa, you had me giggling. That's what my daughter Audrey (in Virginia) says all the time. "Don't make me come up there!" hahahahaha.
I haven't been keeping up so good with reading the blogs and leaving comments. But I will catch up whenever I have the chance to use my laptop. I will leave you now with one of the photos that I took just before things took a turn for the worse. Some of my lilies are a beautiful yellow. These are such happy flowers.
I'm off now till tomorrow (hopefully). Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
