Project 365 - Day 125
So today was the much awaited day back with the cardiologist. Not one I was eager for, frankly because it stresses me out in more ways than one. The short version for now is that I am no longer on medication, I no longer need to come see her and basically I need to live my life as healthy as I can. The echo back in November came back normal. She thinks that either the hole that was there has closed completely or that its a 'pinprick' size, so small enough not to show up on the test. In the long run, this 'hole' if it is truly there, only effects 2% of people with it... so I need to keep myself healthy. The worse case scenario is a blood clot in the leg, which could then go to the heart and cause a stroke, but she stressed it was a rare chance of that happening. I still need to monitor my blood pressure, watch my stress level and relax.. then she basically told me to go on and live my life happy and healthy... I think I will.
