Healthy Heart & Happy Guy

So, I’ve been waiting for that phone call from the doctors office.  The one you want to get the one you don’t want to get.  Test results… Good, bad, or ugly.  Sitting in a casino yesterday morning, my call phone rang.  I immediately picked up the phone, knowing it would be the doctor.

Last week I had the echocardiogram as a result of an abnormal EKG, and basically has had me worried sick for the last two weeks.  Blood pressure and blood work were also a hot mess.  So, the nurse says that my results came back.  The heart doctors read my test, and it looked like my heart was absolutely in perfect shape.  SO, relieved!!!  I also started crying when I heard the news, that is how stressed out I have been about getting bad news and having heart problems.

So, after that call, I had the BEST day!  Stress free, relaxed, and smiling.  Dodged that bullet.  Now I can focus on having an even better vacation, and an amazing marathon weekend coming up.  Right, oh, I do have to run a marathon this weekend, and the doctor just said my heart was all good.

So, another great day in Vegas!  Look who I bumped into….

I wish!  Ok, so I am heading out on another great day in fabulous Las Vegas.

Marathon thoughts are creeping into my head for Wrightsville Beach this Sunday.  Wasn’t even sure I could run it after the heart tests, but I am good to go, and will be ready to rock that course.

  1. Wonderful news! Really wonderful news. I was thinking of you last night as I ran up a few big hills and just hoping that all was ok. Nothing like getting those test results out of the way and now you can have a great time off and an even better marathon 🙂

  2. Awesine news! I have a lot of heart attack history i my family and my brother had a massive near-fatal one last year, so my doctor hooked me up with a cardiologist who ran me through the whole gamut of tests … everything was great – turns out my brother got all the bad genes, I got the good ones … whew! 🙂
