Two people take a hard boiled egg each. Then they smack their eggs together - the one that gets their egg cracked gives it up to opponent. The bottom egg goes up and the top egg goes down. Usually my brother and father play this and get into a funny tiff about how the other one is cheating by covering majority of the bottom/top of their egg with their hand.
My mom sent the ordering doctor an e-mail. The doctor called my mom and apologized.
Now we just wait to see how the Gyn-Onc appt. goes. I'll see what resident is on this weekend and give them the heads up that my mom will be coming into the office soon.
Please keep your thoughts/prayers/good vibes coming this way. I'd hate to see my mom have to go through the ordeal of cancer all over again. I want my mom to be able to enjoy my wedding next year and to see more grandchildren come her way later on.
Stress-echo went good. Don't have to wear the monitor anymore. Will meet up with them at the end of April to see if there is anything I need to follow up on or do. Then hopefully be given the okay to join a gym.
My mom has a ovarian cyst - which is abnormal in post-menapause. She is freaked out due to her history of breast cancer (x 2). Her CA-125 is normal - but in early stages of Ovarian cancer it may read normal or it could even be a false negative.
She is angry with the doctor who ordered the test because she has not heard from her - even after 2 calls (which were answered rudely by the secretary). She got the abnormal U.S. report from our PCP. Luckily I work in Oncology and was able to give her a name of a Gyn-Onc doctor. So after they get all of her reports/records they will set up an appointment with her.
But everyday at least 1-2 times I get a phone call about it from her. It's stressing me out, but I can't let on that it is. I feel ashamed that it is stressing me out. I know she needs me and I am willing to be there for her. But is it wrong for me to be feeling stressed out from it? I would never tell her to back off. But I feel like I am at a loss for words for her and feel bad that I have nothing left to say. I just kind of repeat what I already said.
((sigh)) I just need to know if how I am feeling is okay or if I need to step back and reflect and become a better person.View Thread
So the electrodes they gave me made me break out in a blistering rash. Thank goodness I work in a hospital. The pharmacist sent me cortisone cream and the tele girls were able to find me different electrodes. I still itch and burn but not as badly. My chest is no longer HOT pink! I don't have a lot of area for these electrodes...Since Friday - I've used up all my free space. SO I have no where to put these suckers.
I am going to ask if I can wear it until this Thursday and then take it off. I have hit the button a few times....so I'm sure they have captured something.
So I went to the cardiologist office on Friday. I am now wearing an event monitor for the next 2 weeks... Of course this means I work with this thing on and get to go for tea with my mom (it is a bday gift) with this bulky thing. I look like Frankenstein.
This thing is beyond bulky. I've had it on for over 24 hrs. I would love to throw it out the window but then I would be out 2.4K. I can't stand the wires. The electrodes itch - they out some goopy stuff on me to help with the itch...but I'm wondering if it makes it worse. I'm going to try it without it after I take my shower before I go into work.
I've already pushed the event button multiple times. I occasionally have mild chest pain (it changes sides) when I have a bad episode. Sometimes I don't bother because they are getting it anyway and to me the palps are not that bad and are almost like my baseline ones.
Monday afternoon (after working all night) I go for my stress-echo. Hopefully I can take a nap before. I think I might ask the N.P. if I can PLEASE not wear it when I go out for tea with my mom. I'd like to dress nicely without these wires sticking all out.
I'm stressing myself out so much that my period won't start. ((Yells at body to just bleed already!)) I'm ready to start crying again. I feel so vain and can't stand that I'm doing this at my age. I'm too young to have cardiac issues (if there really is one). I would love for this to be all in my head. Thanks for hearing me complain.View Thread
