my friend, Suzy, that is. I've been having annoying chest pains for most of this year. Back in the spring it was usually when I was doing clean-up. Lifting buckets, moving firewood into the wood shed, etc. Had to stop and let them pass. So, when I went to the doctor for my usual visit, he listened and said he heard a murmur. I poo-pood it and said, "Yeah, they heard a murmur 40 years ago and nothin' was done." Well, he wanted a stress test, I've had 2 and the last one was in 2010 which is too long ago. So, they got 'approval' from my insurance and I had to do it before April 24th. Didn't happen. Too busy. Pain decreased. Forgetaboutit. Then, pains returned, too tired all of the time, yadda, yadda, yadda. Made another appointment. Still heard murmur. OK, schedule the damn thing, I'll go just to shut you up. It was Friday. I told Suzy and her sister Sarah, 'cause they're my POA and when I do give up the ghost, it's all on them, poor girls. Anyhow, Suzy called me on Thursday and said she would take me. Burned a vacation day. Now that's a friend, eh? We went to breakfast early at the golf course, took Archie, because I had to eat before 8:30. Then, the gang showed up by 9. We left at 10:30, ran the boy home, peed the girls, took off for the hospital, back at another restaurant by 3 for a late lunch, home by 4, fed everyone, and, was in bed at 10 minutes till 7! I was beat, slept until 6, then up, took care of everyone, and, out the door by 6:40 for breakfast at the Methodist Church in my home town. Met Buddy, Sue and Sarah. Left there, roared home, peed the girls, got Archie, went to M~~~~~, bought a recliner, went to L~~~~~ Valley for a craft show. Got the cutest little bowl from one of the potters. Visited with Fred, Bev, Karen and Pat at their booth. Left for Matt and Sarah's for a pig roast. Came home. Fed everyone. Back in bed by 9. Today.....ain't doin' nuthin'. Wish I had that new recliner.
Sure hope you just pulled a muscle or something simple. Keep us informed, we care.
Aw, shucks, you're embarrassing me! The doctor I had before always thought it was muscular because I always 'blew the stress test outta the water'! His words, not mine. Thanks for caring. I'll let you know.
