Matters of the Heart Test Results...

Tests results are in!
Here's the breakdown:

20% blockage in my right carotid artery
10% blockage in my right leg
my heart is enlarged and has a murmur do to my diabetes and weight.

They don't do surgery unless there is 70+ blockage.
He is not ordering an angiogram at this time. However, if I continue having heart palpitations or chest pain that is the next step.
I was prescribed Lipitor to help clear the blockage.
He's still requesting 4 miles of walking a day... ugh no salt and veggies, veggies, veggies. booooo Weight loss of course. I think with this diet and walking that shouldn't be a problem...

Man my pill box is getting full!!! If you met my pill box before you met me you would definitely figure me for a little old lady!
Thanking the Lord for a mostly good report. Time to put in the work. Thank you so much for all of your prayers! Glad to have a game plan and to know I'm not going to keel over with a heart attack or stroke!

Much love,

"CAROTID" Wow, Vocabulary or what.

Now I'm Bummed - Ignorance was Bliss - FATHER, BE MERCIFUL TO US ALL

I Walk Around the Block. You Walk Four Miles.
One Mile - is More than Five Football Fields.

I Love Your Blog.
