Thanks, Connie, for your follow-up report. I was wondering how your check-up fared. Bet you're feeling better mentally, too. Physical problems can mess up our emotions as well. Glad you are getting back on track. You gotta get up to 100% so we can have some fun in Paducah one of these days.

So glad you are better and that they found out why you weren't feeling well.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

You took the words out of my mouth, mud!

Thank heavens for your friend the nurse that took a second look at your labs, Constance! Take good care of yourself!

Constance, Glad to hear you are on the mend. Medications can cause problems. Have yourself checked often. Often when they find one problem
Doctors stop looking and then there really is another problem.

I know I had an experience. Heart rhythm being just a little (electrical system of the heart) off will cause you to be dizzy,weak. Have thorough
investigation. Doctors need to be told to investigate. Some do not.

Happy well days ahead.

I'm so sorry to hear that this has happened!!

Kind of reminds me of the trauma that I went through last year during the 2nd hospital stay. The IV medicine I was on for two nights and a day helped get the heartrate down to a normal level, but there were serious side effects with it. And I just couldn't get any sleep!

I got grossly nauseated and sick the 2nd night after having an SOB attack and threw up all over the place!!! After the nurse took me off that medication, I began to feel better. I slept like a baby that Wednesday all day!

But I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling much better now!

Thank you, my friends! What a nice bunch of people we have here...I couldn't ask for a better support group!

You know, when you gradually feel worse and worse over a period of years, you don't realize how bad you felt until you start feeling better. I'm going to have to watch it, though. It seems my appetite is picking up along with my energy. I ate like Miss Piggie yesterday! That may have been partly in reaction to the hospital food, though. I could swear that beef stew came out of a dogfood can.

We get by with a little help from our friends
