Feeling Like S#!%. . .

October 13, 2010


Figured I’d post a quick update, I’m not one to be a downer but the last few days I’ve felt really crappy, just not quite right. I realized yesterday when I went to the Dr’s office that I’ve had a fever for going on 4 days now! Uggh. . .  but other than just generally feeling blah, achy all over and not wanting to eat I cant figure out whats going on.

I have been to the dentist twice in the last two weeks, both times I took my pre-dental antibiotics, but considering my risk of endocarditis, this is the only thing I can think of thats causing me to feel so crappy.

So, back to the Dr’s appointment, they did some blood work, but other than the low grade fever and some pretty non-specific symptoms there’s nothing pointing in any specific direction. Hopefully we should get the results today and that should tell us where to go and what the next step is. Other than that, I am just going to lay low. Hopefully things will turn around soon!

I’ll post an update when I can!



Definitely lost track of things the end of last winter in the midst of my appointment at BACH coming up, and business at work and home, I’m hoping to get back into the whole blogging game, I really miss it!

The last post I wrote I had decided to visit the Boston Adult Congenital Heart Center, but hadn’t gotten my appointment yet. . .a lot has happened since then. . . A LOT!!! Getting the appointment was the least of it! Here’s a quick overview:

First, and one of the most exciting is that I bought a new car, a 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan, LOVE IT!!! (I guess the “trip to boston” posed a good excuse 😉 ) haven’t regretted it yet!

The next is that I got a kitten, Guinness needed a buddy, big time. (more like I needed guinness to get a buddy, BIG TIME! lots of energy with no-wheres to put it, not a good thing!)

The next was my appointment at BACH, that definitely deserves its own post, can we say “Holy Learning Experience, Batman!” I learned alot about myself, and my heart, and I even got to meet a new friend!

The late spring and early summer was full of exercising per my exercise prescription, and summer type stuff, not much happened, but yet, again I learned why not to get too heavy into exercising, I ended up over-doing it and starting to have tons of palpitations and getting overtired, promptly, after my umpteen millionth holter monitor turning up relatively negative I bailed on the exercise routine, and generally have felt better since. . .

all in all, the last 6-ish months have been very busy, but awesome! I’m hoping to keep up with the blogging, and get back to the exercising.
