Catch Up

The Internist got all of my test results, except for the one that has a turn over rate of 30 business days, for Mayenthsa Gravis.  All the others came back good, so while we are waiting for the results of the other, he is trying me back on Midodrine for POTS.  I was put on back almost 10 years ago before I even tried a beta blocker, but they  didn’t give it a good shot, especially considering it took two and a half years to get me on the right dosage on my Beta Blocker.  So we are trying it again.  I am all for this, but you cannot lay down for a half hour after taking it… and it was an hour for me bc my blood pressure would drop so low I couldn’t get up off that couch.  He wants me to take it three times a day, but with my randomly falling asleep, it worries me!  Half the time I don’t mean to fall asleep it’s just BOOM and I’m out.

I was also able to get out with my friend for a late dinner.  I was out and asleep about a half hour after I got home, but at least I did it! Lol.  And I got to meet her puppy who fell asleep in my lap, and wanted to sneak home with me!

I was also able to make my mom and yummy broccoli dinner yesterday.  I want to start adding my recipes that I love on here, and link them from a site, if that’s where I got them from.

I am going to head out and get dinner started.  So nice to be somewhat normal like!!!!  Well still not really, but yay none the less!!!

Ash,
