I just wanted to let everyone know I had a CT scan with oral and IV contrast done yesterday of my abdomen and pelvis. That barium “apple smoothie” (YEAH RIGHT!!) was soooo nasty. I’ll write more about this test at a later time in case any of you ever have to get it. I should get results by the end of the week, but it might not be until early this week. I talked to my doctor at Mayo and he suggested I try a beta blocker called Nadalol. This prescription can’t get approved quick enough — my sitting up resting pulse today is 122. Imagine how your heart would be beating if you were extremely nervous or excited and running a marathon at the same time. That’s how it feels today just sitting. It’s impossible to ignore and also makes it impossible to do anything to distract yourself. Yuck! I’ll let you guys know more when I hear from my local doctor! I’m pretty worn out, but I’m trucking along. Also, my beautiful sister is engaged! Yay.
