Just in time for Christmas
So you may have noticed I haven't been posting much. I've been having some health problems and haven't been feeling too well and I didn't want to say anything until we knew more. Though we still don't know much. So this week I had a bunch of tests run by my cardiologist and they found some excess fluid around my heart. Today they told me it was still mild and they weren't too concerned right now, they'd keep an eye on it, and what to watch out for in case it gets worse. I had a Holter monitor on yesterday and this morning and they're going to look at that as well. But because of Christmas it didn't sound like I'd hear the results of that for a while. So I go back in first week of January and meanwhile I'm on modified bed rest. I basically have to avoid getting my heart rate up which means I'm done Christmas shopping whether I'm actually done or not (I'm not). I'm also missing holiday parties and that sucks! But holiday guests are banned from my home which I'm okay with. I get so anxious when people come over, I have a 3 year old, it's never clean! Part of me is annoyed there's no definitive diagnosis yet, but I'm also relieved that it isn't more serious at this point, even though I feel like I'm having a heart attack. Baby's doing well, so we're all happy about that and it's only about 8-9 more weeks before she's expected to come. Hopefully we'll get this figured out before then.
