  • AAGHHH! I think my local cardiologist has lost it!

    I'm at a loss right now. I went to see my local cardiologist for a follow up on my hospital stay and renew scripts. He seemed quite distressed about my shortcomings. Our goal has been to be hospital free for a month not be in the hospital for a month. So he took me off ALL of my heart meds. I'm not sure what to do.

    I just hope they haven't given up on me. I know I'm a hard case but there has to be hope somewhere.

    OH, well thanks for listening!

      NO, he hasn't. I've been trying to desperatly get a hold of them since it happened. Normally they are quick to return messages but seems like an eternity to me right now.

              Just talked to Mary. She spoke with Dr. Maron who has a call in to her cardiologist. Looking at the clock, they will probably not talk until tomorrow, and Mary will hopefully post the outcome. She was in another doctor’s office and the doctor came in cutting our conversation short. She’s working three days this week, and has doctors appointments on the other days. I’ve done that dance myself, but I think there are better ways to keep busy.
