I Passed!

As I had predicted, I didn't have a problem with my stress test today. They hooked me up to all kinds of wires, stuck me on a treadmill and worked me up to a run. My heart worked at 98% of its capacity and the whole time my blood pressure and everything else was fine. No chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. Now I only have to wait 6 months for my echocardiogram. Ah the joys of socialized medicine and wait lists! Good thing I don't have a serious problem.

Oh, and I have lost 11 lbs.

Yeah for me.

Thanks to the Lord for his mercy, and thank you for all who prayed for me!

Praise the Lord for answered prayer. We prayed for you at our L.I.F.T. group on Thursday (plus I've been praying every day). Now that you've passed the test, just be sure you don't overdo it and get stressed out again. Your body needs a rest.
Love, Mom
